Spontaneously with the dress into the water

Spontaneously with the dress into the water

"I jump into the water even with my clothes on", suggest christina barnickel at the photo shoot. The 20-year-old stands with her feet in the fountain in front of the staffelstein obermain thermal baths. With small steps the queen of the thermal springs candidate walks through the cool glow of the fountain. A few drops of water splash her pink summer dress. Christina laughs and shuffles her wet hair.

The idea to run for queen came from her friend zwanie. Together with her boyfriend tom, christina has been living in a shared apartment in lichtenfels for a few weeks. Zwanie found out about the queen election during a trip to staffelsteiner therme. "At first they wanted to sign me up secretly, but then I got it out", christina remembers. Her friend replied: "chrissy, the criteria fit you exactly. You absolutely have to join in."
So christina applied – and her friends are rooting for her. They even set up their own facebook fan page: "chrissy for thermenkonigin". The friends do a lot together: they go to rock concerts and the cinema, or relax in the spa.
The wet gradually penetrates christina's dress, but she poses – completely unimpressed by the weight of the dripping dress. "I am spontaneous, says the woman from lichtenfels and tosses her brown shoulder-length hair, which she wears as a side parting, back into her neck. She laughs into the camera.

Flexible and always on the move

A dog bite with consequences

It was a funny thing that came up in the proceedings. An entrepreneur from the eastern district was accused of a negligent bodily injury, which a female hiker had to pay for. The fact that his dog had bitten these people on 25. June 2019 between 6 p.M. And 7 p.M. Bit into his thigh, the 56-year-old nevertheless strongly doubted.

His dog was already in 2014 and 2016 conspicuous and attacked people. But this had always happened under the opposite sign, the man stated. Because in the first case a walker had maltreated the dog with sticks and in the second case a cyclist had kicked him. "If my dog was aggressive, I would have shot him long ago", so the 56-year-old against judge daniela jensch.

The victim who had to travel from thuringia was not there. So it was about them or. Talked about her, and in the process, the entrepreneur remembered the incident from his point of view. "The woman was wearing shorts and I did not see a thigh bite." When he rushed to her aid after the alleged or actual incident, the woman accidentally "rolled" backwards into a creek. But the woman did not want to be helped to get out of the creek, and "when I went to get my bandages, she disappeared from the face of the earth, the man continues.

Hartmut stiller is a man without middle age

Hartmut stiller is a man without middle age

A "decent" one job he had, back then in coburg. But he was no longer any good. So the then 23-year-old changed his mind, quit his job as a tax official, completed his vocational baccalaureate and studied social pedagogy. Because numbers don't give you anything back. But people have always been close to hartmut stiller's heart. He came to kitzingen in 1978 as a district youth worker – and stayed on. "When I came, I knew no one. But kitzingen has become my home." Today, the man who not only practiced his profession, but lived it, is retiring after 34 years of service.

The need was great
"I actually wanted to return to coburg after my studies. But there was no vacancy in youth work there", reports the 63-year-old. He applied for a job in the district of kitzingen – and was accepted. The need was there: stiller remembers that young people approached him even before he took up the job. "Somehow it became known that I would be hired – they contacted me before I even had an apartment in kitzingen."

As a future district youth worker, he naturally already had an open ear for the concerns of young people – and was to achieve many things in the following years. Because youth work outside of clubs and associations was virtually non-existent. "Only the evangelical youth deacon did full-time open youth work. That was it." For example, stiller introduced the vacation pass at the district level, built up open youth work and made a strong case for it not being seen as competition to associations and unions. "It was supposed to be a supplementary offer."

Chinese on the verge of taking over thomas cook

The takeover of the ailing british tourism group thomas cook by the chinese conglomerate fosun is progressing faster than planned.

Thomas cook reported in london that an agreement in principle had been reached with the major shareholder fosun, the lending banks and major creditors.

900 million british pounds (995 million euros) of fresh capital is to be injected into the company, half of which will come from fosun. The shares held by existing shareholders were significantly devalued because the debts accumulated to date are to be converted into equity capital.
