Volunteering – not a discontinued model!?

Volunteering - not a discontinued model!?

A question that obviously interests young people: how can politics strengthen volunteerism?? This is what willi dippold wanted to know at the panel discussion on friday evening at the JUZ. The answers of the candidates for the state parliament in the ticker:

Martin schoffel (CSU): "all those involved are doing something great for the community – and they should get something out of it. That’s why we have introduced the honorary ticket, which offers tangible benefits. One thing is certain: club chairmen in particular should not need a law degree to carry out their work. That’s why we have developed many guidelines to make things clearer and more legally secure."

Inge aures (SPD): "without volunteerism there can be no functioning society. The best example was the year 2015, when the voluntary refugee helpers did the main work, not only in munich. I would like to see improvements for trainers, for example."

Mohsin case: he is allowed to do an apprenticeship

mohsin case: he is allowed to do an apprenticeship

"The company has been very patient", says gabi geisel in the direction of benedikt raab and thomas polzer. Mohsin tariq nods vigorously. It’s been more than two years since he completed an internship at the raab company in ebensfeld (district of lichtenfels). And even then, training supervisor thomas polzer was convinced of the young man’s merits and wanted to give him the apprenticeship he was longing for. The problem: tariq was expelled from pakistan and was not allowed to take up the apprenticeship just like that. What’s more, he was threatened with deportation.

He had always fulfilled everything that the foreign authorities demanded of him. He came to zapfendorf as a 13-year-old. He is very well integrated here, was second in his regular class at the qualifier, is involved in the village and in basketball. And yet, it is only thanks to the commitment of member of the state parliament holger dremel (CSU) that tariq can now start his apprenticeship and stay here for another three years.

Gabi geisel and mohsin tariq have fought long and hard for the 19-year-old to finally be able to complete his training. "They stole two years of his life", finds gabi geisel. The breakthrough finally came with the intervention of dremel, who informed the minister of the interior about this special case. At the same time, with gabi geisel’s help, tariq submitted a petition to the bavarian state parliament. Through the office of the deputy, they remained in contact on the matter. Dremel and his office in scheblitz put in their best efforts.

Honey, you look stupid!

Honey, you look stupid!

A bgekampft comes the cross runner from the "long jog" home. "Well, how was it?", asks the runner’s wife. She gets a grumble in response. That’s all. Three hours he was on the road. Three hours of thinking, but no solution to his problem in sight. He just does not have the head free. Saturday is the kemmerner kuckuckslauf and the querlaufer doesn’t know yet what to wear. "You have problems. And there you always say something about us women."

J a, dear friends of the art of running. There’s always something going on in kemmern. In the start and finish area, the bar is bustling. The spectators are beside themselves. The music spurs the participants on. Everywhere poison-green shirts – the color of the kemmern running department. Even the starting arch is green. Host, moderator and department head klaus geub also wears green running shoes. Roland wears green glasses and dyes his hair green. Christine geub’s wrist encloses a green watch. Here, everyone is styled to the nines. The question of the right outfit is not far-fetched.

Even the spectators on the two-kilometer lap give their all. Before the start a cheerleader group shows its skills. After 200 meters the timbalinos drum their souls out of their bodies. In addition to the official refreshment point, there are several "unofficial" ones from residents along the route. Mostly with music support. The whole village celebrates. An accordion player, the golden girls and the samba drummers of "PAIXAO" give gas. The cheerleaders with their pompoms waving everyone to the next round. The whole spectacle is to be run through five times. Again and again grapes of spectators: "bravo. Super. Run, run, run!" Cooking spoons are beaten on pots, rattles are swung and whistles are sounded. When you take a breath, the cuckoo from kemmen will surely come running from behind: "hey, ho, go on, go on." In his female feather costume.

New roller sports facility is being built in bischofsheim

New roller sports facility is being built in bischofsheim

The groundwork for the new roller sports facility next to the open-air swimming pool in bischofsheim has already begun. Now mayor georg seiffert met with alexander zeller (government of lower franconia/city building department), the planner, the representative of the responsible construction company and those active on site for a first inspection, a kind of symbolic ground-breaking ceremony.

The mayor began by recalling the original push for the facility, which began six years ago with a petition to his predecessor, udo baumann. Leopold bott wished for a kind of a skater park. The topic was not forgotten, but also not immediately implemented. "We then took it up, and an unbelievable dynamic has emerged.", seiffert recalled the first meetings with interested young people, the two youth representatives of the city council patrick bauer and benjamin lenhardt, and as a technical specialist siegfried neumann from RWV haselbach.

Total costs of around two million euros

It quickly became clear that the plans and wishes were more far-reaching than a few solo elements for skaters. The idea of the rollersport facility was born. Otherwise, the name is just a kind of working title, seiffert remarked. Perhaps in the course of the next few months another name will be found. The government of lower franconia was won over as a sponsor, and with planning office DSGN concepts from munster, a specialist office that is dedicated to precisely this topic. From the "smaller cities and communities" urban development program (with means of the federation and free state of bavaria) the city of bischofsheim gets 80 percent demand, with total costs of approximately two million euro.

Main loop railroad regular operation not before 2025

Main loop railroad regular operation not before 2025

For a long time, the reactivation of the mainschleifenbahn between volkach and seligenstadt was considered wishful thinking. The "sauferbahnle to be converted into a commuter railroad to wurzburg? – a crazy idea.

The proponents, who had stuck to their vision for decades, were all the more pleased that the bavarian railroad company (BEG) has now recognized the need for regular operation. A corresponding forecast provides for sufficient passengers. But this means that the train is still a long way from running regularly from volkach to wurzburg, as district administrator tamara bischof jungst reported to the district councils.

Costs for reactivation: ten million euros

After a meeting between the districts of kitzingen, schweinfurt and wurzburg, the ministry of transport, the BEG and the mainschleifenbahn operating company (BGM), it became clear that a number of obstacles still had to be cleared from the track: first of all, the infrastructure of the leisure railroad had to be upgraded for regular operation. Originally, the project was estimated to cost five million euros, said bishop. In the meantime, the figure is more likely to be in the tens of millions.

No corona hysteria in the county

No corona hysteria in the county

The phone of camelia fiedler, head of the kulmbach health department, did not stand still for a minute on monday. Rough is the uncertainty of the burgers in view of ever new corona infection reports in bavaria. "There is a lot of need for clarification at the moment," said, camelia fiedler said and emphasized: concerned citizens can turn to the health office for advice at any time.

Three questions

In order to clarify possible suspicious cases, the following basic questions were asked: do you have any symptoms? If this is answered in the affirmative, the next question is "were you in a risk area??" Or "had you had contact with a confirmed corona case?" One of these two questions will also be answered with "yes" answered, one speaks of a suspicious case. For kulmbach, the head of the health department can give the all-clear at the moment: "there is no suspected case in the district."

Once lush kissing cinema landscape

Once lush kissing cinema landscape

Reinhard weigand runs his finger across the screen of his smartphone and reminisces. He is the administrator of the facebook group "du weibt, du bist aus bad kissingen und umgebung" with around 5000 members. In the group, historical pictures and photos are regularly posted, some also of the cinemas that once existed in the city. Like the photo of the former city cinema on von hessing street. A red facade, above the entrance the word "city" is emblazoned in female script, at the bottom right of the picture a woman in a female winter coat is looking at the film posters on the notice board. "First the cinema apollo, then it became the film castle and later it was called "city cinema, tells the 63-year-old. He still remembers the gas station and the rough central parking lot that were right next to it.

Here, in his youth, he watched winnetou movies "and all the other stuff" viewed – in the filmburg still in one cinema hall, in the rebuilt city the productions were finally shown in two halls. "Sometimes, if you knew the projectionist, you were allowed to go into the projection room where the projector was and watch the film through the slits for free." He was happy about that, because as a schoolboy, going to the cinema was an expensive affair that he could not afford often, and when he could, it was with pocket money from grandma and grandpa. "Later, when you were a student, you often went to the movies", says weigand. There was plenty of choice in bad kissingen back then: three cinemas were operated simultaneously in the town between 1950 and 1970. From 1946 to 1975, films were also shown in the spa theater at the suggestion of spa director karl-heinz proehl.

The first cinema in bad kissingen

According to the records of the city archives, the apollo theater restaurant existed from 1912 onwards. It is possible that films were shown there, but this is not documented. What is certain, however, is that from 1922 onwards the "apollo-lichtpiele" became in the place where the savings bank complex stands today. In the apollo there were silent movies to see, which the teacher friedrich W. Grell accompanied live on the piano in the cinema. In 1931 there was the first change of name including change of operator to filmburg. In the middle of the 1970s it was renamed city kino when the gahler family took it over. Until the closure in 1990, it was the largest sound film theater in bad kissingen. "In october 1989 the savings bank bought the land", reports heinz schuhmann. He had started in the building organization at the money house and is still employed there today. In the spring of 1990, work began on the new bank building. "The city was demolished, the central parking lot was dissolved and the savings bank put its building on it", he says. The new central parking garage replaced the parking spaces that had been lost.

Praying bikers on the market square in lichtenfels

Praying bikers on the market square in lichtenfels

On whitsunday, the heavy, highly polished machines rolled onto the market square in lichtenfels, where almost 200 believers celebrated an impressive open-air service. The christian motorcycle friends frankens (CMF) had invited to it. The praise band of the free christian church of lichtenfels provided the appropriate setting. The message of their songs was: life is already, because god loves us.

Bright sunshine was reflected in the chrome of the harleys, bmws, ducatis and a six-cylinder triumph rocket III roadster that had carried its biker from forchheim to the marketplace. Road captain rudi oppel from lahm made it clear that the service served to bring like-minded people into contact with the gospel. "We love motorcycling as well as jesus", he stated. "It is our concern that every biker knows the word of god, therefore we distribute free biker bibles", he made clear. As a branch of the free christian community of lichtenfels, they work interdenominationally, everyone is welcome.

The bumpy roads of life

Preacher christian bohnlein from breitengubbach called out the words of jesus to the people on the bend: "come to me, you who are sad and carry heavy burdens. I will give you rest". He used the example of a motorcycle tour to illustrate his life’s journey: "there were a lot of fantastic roads, and ones that my ‘moped’ loves. Unfortunately, not all roads were like this, but rather unclear and bumpy. "I am convinced that everyone who is here can tell his own story, has been on the road of life’s bad roads", said bohnlein. God make us an offer, when worries keep you up, he is there to help.
