Small people – big spab

Small people - big spab

The children had their rough day at the 21. Langenstadt village festival a great success despite the onset of rain. The youngsters had plenty of opportunities to have fun on the meadow above the fire station, with twelve play stations providing the necessary variety.

Children patiently bake bread over an open fire and later eat the slowly toasted bread. A stairway away, the creative corner with its annually changing ideas was a popular meeting place. Heuer clay pots were adorned with napkins.

Balance and steadiness were important in the egg run and the sack race, while the target splash required a good eye and a steady hand. It wasn’t easy in the "nimble fube" campaign fishing marbles out of a pool of water with his toes, nine-year-old mia did a great job though. The gummibarchen-schleuder was surrounded by people, to knock the peas with the hammer required some skill.

Frankische schweiz: three variants for the use of the “regina” site

frankische schweiz: three variants for the use of the 'regina' site

The meeting of the obertrubach town council focused on the planned renovation of the hundsdorfer weg in obertrubach next year. After the municipality had redeveloped the area of the former "regina" inn a few years ago and has in the meantime demolished the two buildings – the inn and the bed house – the question of the future use of the site is now to be clarified. Mayor markus gruner (CSU) reminded the council both of the need to renew the sewer and water pipes in hundsdorfer weg and of the residents’ wishes to improve the parking situation in the "regina" area-area through the creation of parking and parking facilities. In addition, a proper access road to ottoberg is to be created. Ralph stadter of RSP, an urban planning and architecture firm from bayreuth that has been working for the municipality for many years, first presented the council and the interested citizens present with three basic options: the first variant provides for the creation of parking spaces and the construction of tenements on the site. The second variant includes garages, a parking lot for hikers and a viewing platform in the direction of the kohlberg, while the third variant includes parking spaces and the allocation of land not otherwise required to neighbors. The town council discussed the variants and reiterated the desire to create a continuous footpath. The decision on which variant will be chosen will be made at one of the next meetings.

Stadter then presented the potential and opportunities of an integrated urban development concept (isek). According to stadter, such concepts, in which municipalities formulate their urban development ideas, are of interest to municipalities for two main reasons: on the one hand, as a guiding principle for future development and, on the other hand, as a future prerequisite for obtaining demand funds. The creation of an isek was already part of the annual application 2020 to the city construction requirement. Now the municipal council in its next meetings is expected to enter into preparations for the initiation of the isek process.

Cups should become safer

Cups should become safer

The topic of flood protection for the districts of johannisthal and au was the focus of tuesday evening’s council meeting. It was about the awarding of the work for the building ground investigations.

Before the decision was made, matthias kohler of the kohler office in bad steben presented the preliminary plans. Accordingly, flood protection in johannisthal is to be increased by channeling the floodwater over the rodach river. Among other things, this would require an installation structure and piping, kohler explained. The outflow in the floodplain is to be throttled so that less water flows through johannisthal. The rest of the water was cut off via a pipe and led into the river rodach. The railroad culvert is also to be used for this. Kohler explained that they had tried to approach public areas during the planning phase.

In au, kohler explained, the flood protection dike designed as a ring dike is sufficiently high. It is now a question of proposals as to how this dike could be strengthened. There is a need for action along the two. Here the structural condition must be analyzed. In addition, it must be explored by how many meters the dike must be raised. If it turns out that the dike is capable of carrying current, it would be possible to seal the corresponding area. It would also be possible to install a sheet pile wall in the ground.

New symbol of resistance in thailand

New symbol of resistance in thailand

The democracy movement in thailand is young, colorful and creative – and recently got a very cute new hero: a yellow rubber ducky.

The inflatable animals with the smiling faces, which are actually intended for swimming pools, have been the protagonists of every new protest rally against the government since mid-november, being raised to the sky or placed in the front row at sit-ins. Photos and videos of protesters with their ducks also go viral on social networks – as they have in recent days. But what is it all about?

On 17. November activists wanted to march to the parliament building in bangkok as part of a demonstration. Protests in thailand have been going on for months. Demands include new elections and more democratic rights, but it’s also about the role of the monarchy. However, the police had set up barricades and blocked the way for the demonstrators. They came to the demonstration with huge rubber ducks and joked that the only way to reach parliament was to float across the river chao phraya.

All-clear in the construction area

Good news for the residents of the hammerstiel construction area in kitzingen. The existing suspicion of explosive ordnance on the land between the railroad station and the former larson barracks has not been confirmed. The specialist firm commissioned by the city has not found any dangerous remnants from the second world war.

This is what kitzingen’s mayor siegfried muller has now told the residents of max-fromm-strabe and olga-pohlmann-strabe in the building area, which is now almost full.

"There is no concrete danger in the building area any more", writes the OB after completion of the investigations lasting several weeks. "In order to ensure maximum safety," muller calls on the residents to "carry out explosive ordnance management during construction in the future in the event of massive interventions in the soil."

In schweinfurt, 17 of 45 fountains are in operation

In schweinfurt, 17 of 45 fountains are in operation

Climate change makes it possible. The fountains and water features in the city still run in october, the fountain on schillerplatz, the water band at the stadtgalerie and the stairway fountain at the jagersbrunnen also in winter. The splashing, bubbling or leisurely flowing water is looked after by the city’s gardeners.

17 fountains, 16 in the city center and the rough blue fountain in front of the AOK building at the main train station, are on the list of manuel ortloff and daniel scheckenbach, who take care of the fountains along the streets, on squares and in the parks at the servicebetrieb bau und stadtgrun (service company for construction and city grounds).

Apart from the market fountain in front of the town hall, which provides drinking water and, on special occasions, also wine, and which society demands harmony, the intact fountains today are equipped with a water circuit including recirculation systems, so that only evaporation and drift (including the loss of water due to wind) have to be compensated for. The water pressure is set to "a minimum, but the look has to be right", says manuel ortloff.
