Solar plant for the bunkers in the klosterforst

In principle, the committee had no objections "as long as the development is carried out exclusively on kitzingen land in the direction of the road between kitzingen and horblach", was the resolution proposed by mayor karl hochner, which was supported unanimously. However, if there is a change in the connection in such a way that the panzerstrabe on the eastern edge of the giltholz, which is on groblangheim’s territory, is used, "then we must be informed in good time, so the unanimous opinion in the council.

On the matter, there was the information that in the plant with 22 bunkers and a surface of about 11.57 hectares about 1300 kwp will be generated. From the construction plan it appears that there is no change in the landscape, because the plant is completely surrounded by forest. A fence is required "but it already exists and needs to be renewed at certain points", stands in the construction plan. It further states that the excavation is secured and is done through a federal private roadway. No other road is required for installation and maintenance of the solar system, he said.

Operator is the company high.Rhein real estate gmbh. Regarding the subsoil, it is stated that it is possible that explosive ordnance may be found and that there is therefore a latent risk to health: "if there is any need to intervene in the subsoil, investigations will be necessary", according to the relevant wording in the construction plan.

To wear out: the drinking water in untersteinach

To wear out: the drinking water in untersteinach

Fetching drinking water in canisters from the next coarser place. This is commonly associated with conditions in africa, for example. But this is still the case today, right in front of our doorstep: in untersteinach, a district of the steigerwald municipality of burgwindheim. There, the approximately 125 residents in the 33 estates supply themselves from their own wells. But their water quality is demonstrably so bad that the authorities have been calling for a different solution for years. This could consist in a retrofitting of the wells, or a decentralized solution, i.E. A communal supply from the best wells, or a connection to a centralized water supply.

The community has been trying to achieve the latter for a long time. After the majority of the people from untersteinach voted for it two years ago. In itself, the connection should not be a problem, since we have belonged to the auracher gruppe water association since 1978.

And according to their expansion plans, the connection to untersteinach is planned for 2015. But time is pressing. Finally, the department responsible for drinking water at the district office is pushing for a solution that will ensure sustainably good drinking water in untersteinach. Since well users have to have their water tested once a year and report the results to the district office, this is a good overview of the situation.

“The glow of memory”: a journey and a farewell at the same time

Sigismund von dobschutz

the novel "the glow of memory" reads as honestly as an account of their experiences, as oppressively and poignantly as a diary by the american writer michael zadoorian, which was published in the u.S. Back in 2009.
The german translation by elfriede peschel was only published in december, just in time for the film of the same name starring helen mirren and donald sutherland. "The leisure seeker, the original title, was only zadoorian’s second novel in 2009.
"Leisure seeker is the brand of their oldtimer motorhome, with which the married couple ella and john robina set out on their last journey – a trip along the dilapidated route 66 from chicago to santa monica. Ella is terminally ill, husband john suffers from dementia. Against the wishes of the doctors and their two children, they both go on a journey. On the campsites, the slide projector they brought with them gives them the "glow of memory" at night, when the two oldsters share their "greatest hits of the robinas" from a time long past – a time when they were still traveling together as young parents with small children.
The journey is also a farewell to life. Because ella, who dedicates her honest and unsparing report to us readers, is aware of her short remaining life time. She starts the trip, she says, with "more health problems than a third world country. But that is precisely why the doomed woman defiantly dares to take this trip in her familiar mobile home: "we have nothing to lose." Doctors like to save people, she says to herself, "but when it comes to someone who is 80 years old, what is there to save??"
Qualender is the feeling of degradation by her adult children: when they learn of the parents’ departure, they are first stunned, then enraged, want to bring the parents back immediately and contact the federal police. But ella refuses: "being old is not against the law – at least not yet."
On the journey, ella decides where to go, where to stop, where to spend the night. Husband john with "valid driver’s license lives on the steering wheel. While we readers experience ella’s feelings every hour, with john we remain only observers. What the dementia patient thinks, whether he thinks anything at all, we don’t find out. Only sometimes do we hear that he remembers details from his early marriages. But sometimes he doesn’t even remember the name of his wife, to whom he has been married for 60 years.
"The glow of memory" is not one of the currently popular, nice novels about lively seniors with reference to a self-determined life of old people. Because ella and john really don’t just have nice days. Many a time they have needed help. Often ella even doubts whether they will reach santa monica at all. But it is precisely these less gentle experiences, which author michael zadoorian has his ella describe glibly and mostly with dry humor, that are the really worth reading passages of this altogether quite unusual, and therefore unique novel.

There is no mosque in the “frank” after all

there is no mosque in the 'frank' after all

In his home town of barnfels, thomas mainusch, direct candidate for the bundestag, received just 7.08 percent of the vote. The afd candidate peterka, on the other hand, wins 13 seats in the obertrubach district.3 percent. In birkenreuth the lawyer from bayreuth even manages 20.45 percent; in niedermirsberg, the AFD man can even muster 26.5 percent of the first vote.

"We don’t have a mosque in niedermirsberg and I couldn’t detect any alienation in french-speaking switzerland either", thomas mainusch is irritated by the AFD’s unexpectedly good results. Peterka interprets the double-digit results he was able to achieve as follows. "Rooted CSU sympathizers have come to us more strongly." The fact that the results in the small districts were so exorbitantly high was due to the fact that, because of the number of voters, the individual vote had a greater weight.

According to peterka, you don’t need any major social issues to vote for the afd. "Where there are intact family ties, as in the countryside, the discrepancy between what politics has to offer and what people feel is particularly glaring" finds peterka. So the choice of the AFD was logical.
