Volle kirchen: mesner as usher

There was so much going on that the mesners had to do duty as ushers to accommodate the crowds of believers at the family services in the late afternoon in the house of the lord. The sacristans tried to find a seat for as many people as possible.

With a festive fanfare the trombone choir opened the service in the church of the holy trinity in presseck, which was immediately followed by the kindergarten children with a fresh and straightforward song about four advent candles.

Full up to the second emporen it was also in untersteinach. Shortly before the beginning of the service, pastor wolfgang oertel rushed up the stairs to scout out possible places, but in vain.

The office is not dying out

The office is not dying out

Regardless of the corona-induced trend toward working at home, the office will not disappear from everyday working life in germany in the foreseeable future.

While companies have leased far fewer new offices since the spring than they did before the pandemic, there has been no flat-lining trend in the cancellation of office leases. Economists, brokers and business consultants do assume that corona will have a long-term impact on everyday working life – but what form this could take is not yet clear.

In the second and third quarters, german companies leased only half as much new office space in each of the top seven cities as the long-term average, according to market data from savills, a major international brokerage firm. Instead of one million, only half a million square meters were newly leased per quarter. "The only exception is the public sector," says matthias pink, head of market observation at the british company’s german subsidiary.

The people of drossenhausen are indispensable

At the general meeting of the drossenhausen fire department, commander sebastian hofmann thanked district fire inspector stefan puls and district fire chief manfred bruckner for their excellent support. He also praised the cooperation with the municipal administration. His report showed that nine training sessions and the accident prevention training were carried out together with the fire departments of beuerfeld and moggenbrunn. A joint ceremony took place with the mirsdorf fire brigade in einzelberg. The water demand was in the foreground. Sebastian hofmann called this training very informative, in order to be prepared for a possible fire operation. The participation in the scheduled exercises was average. "Exercises are not done for fun and to pass the time, but are meant to deepen the safe handling of the equipment", he explained. If it is not possible to attend, apologies should be sent.

In the past year, the fire brigade went out on two occasions, firstly to einzelberg to a heating fire in the cellar and secondly to clear a fallen tree between drossenhausen and tiefenlauter.

The maypole festival took place together with the village community, the solstice bonfire had to be cancelled due to the drought.

New vehicle for the fabrikschleichach fire department

New vehicle for the fabrikschleichach fire department

There were many reasons to celebrate at the weekend with the fabrikschleichach volunteer fire department. The most visible was the new fire engine, which was officially put into service on sunday with the blessing by pastor kurt wolf. In addition, the fire department association celebrated its 40th anniversary and took this as an opportunity to honor some of its members.

This year’s harvest thanksgiving service focused on the fire department. The harvest altar was adorned not only with many crops and garden fruits, but also with a toy fire engine. After the service, pastor kurt wolf blessed the new vehicle (not the toy car, of course) and all those who drove it to the field. The chairman of the fire department association, bastian hogen, was pleased about the many guests who had come to fabrikschleichach for this special occasion.

In addition to the delegations from all the fire departments in rauhenebrach, the guests included deputy district administrator oskar ebert, mayor matthias bauerlein, district fire administrator ralf dressel, KBI georg pfrang and KBM johannes betz.

Retail sales grow more slowly than expected

Retail sales grow more slowly than expected

This was reported by the federal statistical office in wiesbaden. Adjusted for calendar and seasonal effects, real sales rose by 0.5 percent compared to july. It was the first month-on-month plus since may. After the surprising drop of 0.2 percent in real terms in july, however, economists had expected a stronger increase of 0.8 percent: because the labor market is robust and consumer sentiment in germany is better than it has been for six years. Consumer researcher rolf burkl from the market research company GFK said last week that burgers are currently shopping "almost euphorically".

According to the statistics, retailers are not yet really noticing this in their coffers. But at least the german retail sector is back in the black for the year to date thanks to the august trading period. From january to august, the retail sector achieved a minimal real increase in sales of 0.1 percent compared to the previous year. In nominal terms, earnings for the eight months were up 1.5 percent over the same period last year.

"We see the development as positive and have no reason to complain," said the spokesman for the HDE trade association, stefan hertel. Business is developing cautiously positive and is fully in line with the HDE forecast of a nominal plus of 1.0 percent for the year as a whole: "we are in good spirits with regard to christmas business."

Fuchsstadt again with offensive aces feser and bolz

Fuchsstadt again with offensive aces feser and bolz

TSV munnerstadt – DJK schwebenried/schwemmelsbach: another banger for TSV munnerstadt (3)./17) in the east district league. After the top match at table leader FC 05 schweinfurt II, the schonhofer squad receives the combo of DJK schwebenried/ schwemmelsbach (2./17), which is tied for second place with the nagelsieder and travels to the munnerstadt sports center with the recommendation of an 8-0 win over TSV grobbardorf II. The result came without a single goal from top scorer david fleischmann, because last year’s 34-goal man was not in the game at all. Even his second-best scorer michael maar (4 goals) schwebenrieds spielertrainer mario schindler 60 minutes on the bench stew, in the goal pushing others jumped into the breach, such as the ex-ebenhauser christian engert, who scored in a double pack.

There’s no question that the second-placed team in the table has quality, as TSV coach dominik schonhofer also pointed out. "From my point of view a grown, strong playing and fighting team, which is even stronger than in the last round, because there were some new players added, like thomas casar from bergrheinfeld." The murschter themselves sold themselves at the leader schweinfurt a week ago expensive despite the 0:4 defeat, were above all in durchgang one at least on eye-high. "It was a very good game from both sides. The quick 1:0 after the break decided the game. Schweinfurt then played out its individual class and deserved to win, even if the result is one or two goals too high", schonhofer puts a stop to the second defeat of the season and looks ahead to schwebenried. "This will be a very difficult game for us." The nail singers should not be afraid, even if with niklas markart (sick) and sebastian halupczok (exams) two regulars will be missing.

FC fuchsstadt – TSV rothlein: after two defeats in a row one hopes at the FC fuchsstadt (6./16) in the home game against TSV rothlein (9./15) on a turnaround. The return of the two offensive aces simon bolz and johannes feser, who were recently absent due to vacation, is cause for optimism. "I hope that with them, success will come back again," said, FC coach marius kubo makes crude remarks about his two top performers, without wishing to belittle the performance of the other players. They also did a good job despite the two defeats. In the youngest 2:4 defeat in rottendorf, the team slept through the first half, which the opponent punished ice-coldly. "We were not concentrated. In the second half we did better, but we were already 4-0 down", was the fist ultimately too rough. All in all, kubo does not attach too much importance to the small negative series. "In the games before we had sometimes the quantchen luck to the victory, last had it two times evenly the opponent. You have to approach every game with the highest concentration, because only small things decide." The rothlein start to the season was modest with three defeats in a row. Afterwards they won five times in a row, before SV euerbach/kutzberg was too much for them on the last matchday with a 1:4 home defeat. "The rothleiner klaus keller is a trainer fox. He has a team that comes through the fight and is almost unchanged from last season", female cubo.

Hulkenberg sets 'highlight' - vettel's suffering continues

His sensational drive at silverstone baffled nico hulkenberg himself.

"I’m a bit surprised, but have a big smile on my face," commented the furious formula 1 representative driver at racing point on his brilliant third place in qualifying behind the mercedes duo of valtteri bottas and lewis hamilton. "This was a highlight, but it is not the time to rejoice too early."

When hulkenberg was shining at the jubilee weekend, sebastian vettel gave the longest frustration interviews. The four-time world champion missed out on the top ten for the second time in his farewell season at ferrari, qualifying only twelfth for the grand prix of england.

Two representatives for mayor

Two representatives for mayor

The burgers showed great interest in the constituent meeting of the adelsdorf town council on wednesday evening in the aischgrundhalle. First, mayor karsten fischkal made it clear what it’s all about: "here in the town council, the course is being set for the future for the entire community of adelsdorf. Not for a party, not for a district. We must always look at the big picture."

The committee received the spiritual blessing of pastor thomas ringer and pastor jens arnold. Ringer brought a small cross as a gift for all 21 members of the council. It then became a little solemn when fischkal swore in the seven new municipal councilors kerstin auer (grune), norbert lamm (SPD), matthias gob (CSU), nico kauper (CSU), ralf olmesdahl (ABWI), thomas lay (CSU) and tim scheppe ().

When it comes to the election of the second and third mayor, it quickly becomes clear that not everyone is of one mind. Uwe poschl (CSU) proposes only one honorary official to represent the mayor, rather than two, as he does not want to incur even more costs due to the shortfall in income as a result of the corona crisis. Lamm agrees. Scheppe counters that the 10,000-inhabitant mark will soon be broken. "So after twelve years, it’s time to elect two deputy mayors. The decision is made with twelve to nine votes in favor of the third mayor.

Eu builds new protection wall for taxpayers with banking union

eu builds new protection wall for taxpayers with banking union

The europeans are setting up a new bailout for bankrupt banks and thereby creating a protective wall for the taxpayers. EU finance ministers agreed on the final pillar of the banking union – the rules for the resolution or restructuring of failing banks – after twelve hours of negotiations on thursday night. However, criticism is coming from the european parliament, which still has to approve the compromise.

Savers will be better protected in the future, taxpayers spared in the event of collapses of financial institutions. During the financial crisis, the EU countries pumped around 1.6 billion euros into ailing financial institutions.

Core stuck is a common pot built up over ten years with bank money. This bank resolution fund is to comprise up to 55 billion euros in the end. A new body, including representatives of the member states, decides whether and how a bank is to be wound up. The EU commission has a right of veto.

Bollertest with the volunteer fire department bad bruckenau

Bollertest with the volunteer fire department bad bruckenau

The past new year's eve had given him a thinking note. Carelessly, joscha reinheimer threw a boller into a trash can – which burst into countless splinters. He and his friends had not just turned a corner, they had been caught. Now joscha once again bounds a forbidden boller. Or better, he lets him zunden "to simply show how dangerous unapproved bollers are", says the young video journalist for "move36, the youth magazine of the parzeller publishing house.

Look for the CE mark

Marius fischer has put on protective clothing. The youth leader of the volunteer fire department of bad bruckenau is the man who will watch the boller. His caution seems excessive: helmet, goggles, a match tied to a long handle. "Sometimes the tinder cord is defective and the boller explodes directly in your hand", he explains. Therefore, the police warns as every year: boller and feuerwerkskorper should absolutely a CE mark as well as a zulassungszeichen aueisen. If not, finger away!

Boom! The explosion echoes in waves through the sinn valley. The force is many times greater than the bulbs you can buy at the supermarket. Marius fischer takes off his helmet. If a firework doesn't explode, he says, please just leave it there. Even with legal bollern something could happen fast. Two years ago, a firecracker hit a young woman in the eye so badly, reports thomas weber of the bavarian red cross in bad kissingen, that she was taken to the eye clinic at the university of wurzburg.
