At the minigolf meet rough and small ball artists

At the minigolf meet rough and small ball artists

The lanes are not quite dry yet. A heavy rainstorm raged the day before. Mary sopper puts the cushions on the chairs, gets the broom from the storeroom and is just opening her miniature golf course at the state swimming pool. Two children are already waiting impatiently in front of the entrance. Quickly grab the ball and the beater. The day's work begins.

25 years ago sopper took over the plant. For the anniversary there was a big party for young and old. But one thing after the other. In 1988, sopper and her then-husband took over the miniature golf course at the state spa. "At that time we didn't even have running water", tells sopper. Little by little they expanded the facility. A small three-by-three-meter hut served as sales and storage space. "There were no toilets yet either and we only sold ice cream and soft drinks", remembers the 60-year-old.

After ten years it was finally water was installed on the course and there were also toilets. In 1998, the first rough work was completed. The next step was the renovation of the tracks. Work on the facility began in 2007. "The courses were already very old, about 50 years, that was necessary", says sopper.

Beats am berg 2016: techno party with panoramic view

Beats am berg 2016: techno party with panoramic view

Shortly before the summit station, the steady hum of the lift system changes to the steady thudding of the bass runs. Before, you were floating in the gondola between the treetops, now you are floating up and down the slope on the dance floor between a colorful bunch of techno fans. Behind the DJ booth on the south side of the mountain, the fichtelgebirge panorama provides a very special feeling. Above the dance floor the gondolas bring downhill bikers, walkers and new party guests to the top of the ochsenkopf, 1024 meters high, on this sunday afternoon as if on a conveyor belt.

"Beats on the mountain is the name of the techno party that the snowboarders from "snow sports entertainment" are organizing from bischofsgrun; so that something is happening in the area. The organizers have limited the tickets to 999, to be able to plan better. One week before the party they were sold out. "Create something very special" was the goal behind the party, says co-organizer max fischer. And it was a success – even if dancing on the slope takes some getting used to. The good feeling makes the inclined guest even overlook the fact that no regional beers are offered, but only drinks from the well-known breweries and soft drink manufacturers.

Criticism of details of eu data protection proposals

Criticism of details of eu data protection proposals

The eu commission’s proposals for a new legal framework for data protection are "a good basis, on the basis of which, however, some improvements should still be made," said the federal commissioner for data protection, peter schaar. He expects the federal government to actively lobby for improved data protection in the upcoming EU consultations, schaar explained.

Federal minister of the interior hans-peter friedrich declared that "if necessary, a fundamental review of national and european data protection law" was necessary. We must now succeed in making data protection law simpler and more effective in the course of the upcoming negotiations at EU level. However, with a view to the future "exchange of data in the security sector," he sees … Serious problems in the effective performance of security tasks" if the EU commission’s proposals are implemented.

Federal consumer protection minister ilse aigner (CSU) said it was important to have common european data protection standards "with a global appeal. The high level of data protection achieved in germany must be preserved.

Notices about trench extension amounts and a heibe slide criticized

After the presentation by mayor andreas sandwall, the burghers had their say. Among other things, this was about the road extension statute, of which no one knows at the moment how it will proceed. Walter kloffel, resident of st.-andreasstrabe in grobenbrach criticized the fact that some notices had been sent out for this area. "The decision is deeply unjust", found kloffel. "The recommendation from the ministry of the interior to suspend this has only been in place since february.", the mayor stated. Nevertheless, he expressed his sympathy with the residents. "At the moment, we do not have a changed legal basis in this area", explained company manager thomas beck. "The municipality was only asked to suspend the notices until the law is in force", said beck. However, only in february, so that the sending of the notices in december was not affected by this recommendation.
A citizen criticized that the slide on the playground in grobenbrach was so slippery in the summer that the children could not use it. In general, everything here is in the blazing sun. "I know that some of the equipment on the playgrounds is no longer up to date. We are currently in the process of developing a concept and revising these", said sandwall. He asked for patience here, as the playgrounds in the other parts of the community were also involved.
Harald neugebauer noted that the fubweg to aschach was in a miserable condition. The mayor promised to take care of this.

Lego traffic circle

Questions about the "lego traffic circle" were also clarified and how to proceed. "At least we have managed to introduce a speed limit", sandwall said. Jorg rumberg said that he thought a traffic circle would be a better solution. Heribert hein noted that the intersection in question, where the "lego traffic circle" was to be built, was not in use was pitch black at night. Here the lighting had to be improved.
Stefan etzkorn asked whether the speed indicator in the town had made a difference. Sandwall answered in the affirmative, even considering the purchase of additional displays for the municipality, which could then be operated in parallel.
Brunhilde hillenbrand remarked that the ditch in the pfaffenacker could hardly hold the floods, especially during heavy rain. "We want to have these points examined on a community-wide basis, and every village should be involved, sandwall said. This is in planning.
Thomas kirchner criticized the approach to the implementation of the "new L+S building" project. The citizens had not been involved enough. Sandwall said that there had been public meetings in the market town council where many grobenbracher had been present. Councillor helmut wischang explained that there had indeed been a public meeting in bad bocklet on the subject, in which the citizens could have their say. However, this meeting was only sparsely attended.
Gottfried buttner noted that in the bergstrabe, people drive too fast, which leads to many deer being run over. It was also suggested at the meeting that the grotto should also be included in the maintenance of the cemetery in grobenbrach.

He had set up his cars in the lower part of bahnhofstrabe, with a range that could not be missing from any of the seven exhibitors: practical cars, built a little higher, small suvs, vans for seven people. "People like it when they can get in more easily."

The autofruhling is not a place for unattainable car dreams. What was shown was what was also bought. Well, auto scholz had several powerful AMG variants from its range, but the cars are also available with smaller engines. Open cars at audi, fiat, mercedes and mazda were not missing. "Spring is convertible time", said richard eberhard from the car dealership merkur in lichtenfels. He has been with the company for over 25 years: "many things have changed, but the popularity of the customers has remained consistently good."

Diesels are still in demand, despite the current political debate: "we have only seen a slight drop in demand compared to the previous year", says horst karrasch from car dealer eberhardt in lichtenfels.
