Busy bees and lazy willies

Busy bees and lazy willies

Every little flower with blood on it is potential food for the bees. Liczewski sees the plant world with different eyes than an uninitiated hiker. "Like a hunter, looking out for the wild, I look in the area around my bee colonies for nutritious blood", liczewski points to his beehives at the edge of the forest of the front weidig in wartmannsroth.

Please the farmers

The bees fly not only to the forest bleeding, but also to bleeding rape fields. "The farmers should not spray these fields at noon, but in the evening", asked liczewski. Because then the bees are back in their nests again. When bees are exposed to agricultural sprays, they are often not allowed back into the nest because of the different smell and then perish.
Now liczewski must devote all his attention to the beehives. When the colony is too coarse and there is not enough space in the hive, the bees start to swarm and form a new colony. "The queen can become five years old", female experienced beekeeper. The usual bee, however, is only six weeks old. There are honey-collecting worker bees, worker bees for the tasks in the nest and drones that are only there to fertilize the queen. The drones are fed until the fall and then thrown out of the nest as useless eaters once they have completed their task.

Meeting of the generations

Meeting of the generations

The alloheim "lowenquell" senior citizens’ residence embarks on a journey through time. In the framework of the series of events "meeting of the generations" the dialogue between young people and residents should be constantly encouraged. This year, too, there was a meeting with this year’s confirmation group from unterlauter. Teenagers and seniors discussed everyday school life, growing old and their first pocket money together.

"The girls and boys were particularly surprised by the heavy workload of young people of that time", tells the head of social support, sylvia hohn. "Although there were no afternoon classes at school back then, most of our seniors had to help out much more at home in their free time than is the case today." Young people imagine growing old to be quite lonely. The residents of the residence were able to confirm this to a large extent. "Many seniors outlive friends and schoolmates", that is why we are very grateful for all the volunteer leisure partners who offer their time for walks together, for reading aloud or for a nice chat."

As a small surprise, the confirmation group came up with a very special activity. With the support of deacon jochen grams, the girls and boys organized a coarse dinner in the parish office of bad rodach. Thanks to the help of the social care team of the alloheim senior residence, more than 20 residents were able to take part in the event.

A pioneer in upper franconia

A pioneer in Upper Franconia

Julian naumann, oskar kober and flynn weeber like to play assistants and hold up the sign with the yellow imprint: early education – equal opportunities high: this facility participates in the federal program ‘kitaplus’" is written on the shiny white sign that mayor hermann anselstetter, kindergarten director kerstin lobe and elisabeth weith from the awo want to screw on right next to the entrance door.
The three "lausbuben are pleased about the great upswing that prevails in the herbert kneitz day care center on this occasion. Rainer bluchel, who is responsible for daycare facilities at the district office in kulmbach, tanja zehe, deputy head of the kindergarten, and gottfried luthardt, the local chairman of the awo in wirsberg, and his deputy, also came. Everyone wants to be part of making the kindergarten fit for the future.
The kitaplus demand program is a demand of the federal government to further demand the compatibility of family and career. In concrete terms, this means that in the future, children will be able to attend kindergarten in wirsberg from 6 a.M. Until 6 p.M.30 o’clock. "We are the only childcare facility in the entire district of kulmbach that has been accepted into this program", widely declared.
This year, 45,000 euros have been earmarked for the extended hours, and another 50,000 euros have already been earmarked for next year. "We are able to extend our already long opening hours thanks to the demand program: up to now, we have looked after children from 6 to 6.30 a.M. To 4 p.M.30 o’clock, from 1. April the opening hours will be from 6 a.M. To 6 p.M.30 p.M.", explains kerstin lobe.
The wirsberg kindergarten sat down with the parents in advance, analyzed exactly what care times were needed and responded to their wishes. "We already have five children who will also be looked after in the early evening hours. We have further expressions of interest from november and from january. But this is just the beginning, the need is there", says lobe.
The wirsberg kindergarten not only receives a subsidy for the additional staff hours needed to provide care, but also for the interior of the building. Because when the children come to the facility so early in the morning, they should of course also have breakfast at a special counter – with a music dispenser and everything that a child’s heart desires. In addition, there will be a cuddle corner. Because the longer care also requires a somewhat different atmosphere. "At the moment, the children who stay late in the evening eat their evening meal brought from home, which is naturally cooled. But in the long term, the idea is to provide a dinner as well.", explains lobe.

"Future expansion

"This expansion of the offer is absolutely future-oriented and important for the compatibility of family and work. Today, employees are expected to be flexible, and with extended care, this flexibility is possible", anselstetter is pleased about the innovative childcare offer in wirsberg. The fact that the next facility required by the federal program is in nurnberg, making the wirsberg kindergarten a pioneer in upper franconia, makes the mayor particularly proud.
In fact, the daycare center is also a language daycare center, i.E. A facility that receives additional funding for communication requirements. And currently the facility is being rebuilt for 400 000 euro. The roof is taken off, a second after-school group (already fully booked) is to be created. In addition, a staff room, an office for the kindergarten director and a therapy room for the special needs of the children are to be built.
At present, 79 children between the ages of nine months and twelve years are cared for in wirsberg by twelve educators and childcare workers. The herbert kneitz daycare center also has a special language specialist on staff.

Parents see themselves confirmed

On wednesday, the association of grammar schools in the city and district of bamberg will discuss the results of the site survey for the dientzenhofer grammar school (DG) for the first time.
The content of the investigation, which had been made public in advance, is also buried by the school parents. On the basis of school calculations and forecasts, the study showed that none of the towns of hirschaid, hallstadt, memmelsdorf and scheblitz examined as alternative locations had the necessary school potential required by the state for the establishment of a new state grammar school.
The parents’ council also welcomes the appointment of the two chairmen of the special-purpose association, mayor andreas stark (SPD) and district administrator johann kalb (CSU), in good time before the annual general meeting on 7 may. May enrollment of new students begins. The two top politicians had last week made a clear commitment to the existing location of the high school on feldkirchenstrabe.
The parents’ council feels that the results of the report "fully confirm" its arguments for keeping the dientzenhofer high school at its current location and now hopes that the preservation of the site will also be formally approved by the board of directors of the special-purpose association.
The decision would give parents and their children the assurance that they were choosing a good school, the DG, "with its good accessibility and its specific, unique school profile, which would remain with them for a long time.

The burgers join in atzhausen

the burgers join in atzhausen

Mayor gerlinde stier maintains good contact with the burghers of her community. She not only knows her way around the main town of kleinlangheim, but also knows where the residents’ shoes fit in the suburbs. No questions were left unanswered at the castle meeting in atzhausen.

Of the total of 1447 citizens, 175 live in the suburb of atzhausen. Five deaths, but also two weddings, are recorded here.

The current figures

Stier explained the figures of the 4.8 million budget of the municipality of kleinlangheim to the attendees. Although the debt level could be almost halved and the per capita debt is still 71 euros, it will increase by 500 euros in 2018 due to borrowing of one million euros. 700,000 euros must be invested especially in the kindergarten, which is currently overcrowded with 69 children. Work has already begun on the annex, where a group of small children will find a new home.

The theater opens its doors

The theater opens its doors

A visit to the theater is a very special experience. But not only the classic educational burger is invited, but also schoolchildren are welcome – at least in mabbach. For this reason, the frankisches theater mabbach has also launched the project "partner school of the frankisches theater schloss mabbach" started. The ignaz-reder-realschule mellrichstadt was chosen as the partner school.
The director of the theater, anne maar, describes the goal of the project: "we want to establish a close connection between school and theater over the course of the entire school year"." On the one hand, the theater should be presented, but not only that. "We want to show that a theater consists of more than just actors. We also offer a wide range of craft professions that one would not immediately associate with the theater", says the theater pedagogue mahela wiedner. Of course, rehearsals and performances were also attended in the course of the project, but in the subsequent conversation with the actors, one could learn much more about theater than just by attending a play.
The students will also be challenged in other areas. "During the project they should visit the individual departments and at the end give a self-prepared guided tour, where the individual areas of the theater are then presented to the fellow students", is the idea of theater pedagogue. At the same time, for the students of the 8. And 9. The project offers practical courses for the classes, which show that a theater does not only consist of actors. "The professions of stage designer, costume designer, carpenter and also dramaturge – all these are important for a theater and can be learned", saysanne maar.
The people who work in the theater also visit the schools. For example, the project organizers have the idea of having a stage designer come into the classroom. He will show how a model stage set is built – and the students will then be asked to put it into practice. This also benefits the theater AG of the secondary school, which needs a stage set for its performance anyway. "The model stage image is then used for the school performance", julia waldner, who is responsible for the theater group with a lot of heart and soul, is very pleased. She herself acted in the theater during her school years at the gymnasium in munnerstadt and is enthusiastic about the subject. "Of course, all grades should attend a performance as part of the project," says anne maar, she says. According to the age group, there is a rough selection in mabbach.
"We are happy to have entered into such a cooperation with the theater in mabbach", the headmaster of the secondary school, ulrich kluge, is also pleased. In this way, the secondary school is also able to convey cultural knowledge. And this is also what they want to show: "we have more high school classes coming to the performances than middle school classes". We want to show that the theater is there for everyone", mahela wiedner summarizes the concern of the frankisches theater schloss mabbach. And, of course, there are numerous jobs in the theater that require dexterity and manual skills. "We are definitely looking forward to the project", says anne maar.

More safety on the way to school

More safety on the way to school

An accident like last year should not happen again at the elementary and middle school in schlusselfeld. Last year, before the pilots had even started their duties, a student at the secondary school was hit by a car while crossing the road. A push-button traffic light for pedestrians has been installed by the bamberg state building authority in the area of the crossover over state road 2262, and has now officially been put into operation.

16 young school crossing guards

Principal reinhold hofmann agreed with the traffic educators from the police that additional crossing guards should be installed to secure the way to school. He thinks it is very important right now. "The children first have to get used to the new traffic lights." Emely and simon, two of 16 young people who stop traffic in the morning with their trowels, are very happy to be school crossing guards. They are aware of their responsibility and do not allow themselves to be distracted even by questions. Also that for this "job" they don’t mind that they have to get up a little earlier than other students.
The young people are very proud of the praise they receive from mayor johannes krapp. Krapp is very happy about the new traffic light. In the past, there were speed limit signs in this area that dated back to the time of the construction site. When the construction phase was over, they stopped for the time being. But then they had to disappear from the state road. Since then, the city has requested a traffic light. Krapp is therefore very grateful to the state building authority that it has now worked out.
Without cost to the city of schlusselfeld, as building director norbert schmitt answers the question. The system cost around 28,000 euros. It takes five seconds for the traffic light to change after the button is pressed. And it also has an acoustic signal. Next year, the damaged pavement of the road from the school to dennertstrabe, for example, will be renewed, schmitt informed. In the context of this mabnahme the roadside in the area of the school is to be created handicapped accessible.
The elementary and middle school in schlusselfeld is currently attended by around 350 students in grades one to nine. The young people are trained as school crossing guards in the sixth grade. From the seventh grade, they were allowed to start their service.

Prichsenstadt at the debt limit

Prichsenstadt at the debt limit

"Nothing more can go in!" Mayor adolf falkenstein spoke in the council meeting on thursday evening about the financial plan of the city of prichsenstadt from 2013 to 2016. A few figures show how tight things will be in the coming years: the interest burden is expected to rise to around 200,000 euros per year in 2014 and 2015, and the per capita debt will increase from the current 80 euros to a calculated 1590 euros in 2015.
In addition, there are still things "that can't be stopped", the mayor announced. The mayor referred to possible building areas, the development of which would be a "lay on" since the construction contributions are calculated according to the statutes and not according to actual costs.
The fact that the end of the line has been reached is also shown by the statement of the district administration. "The situation is critical and the city is at the debt limit", the mayor quoted the official statement. This was also confirmed by chamberlain thomas mayer: "we have no more room for maneuver for further loans, which could amount to about 5.3 million euros in the coming years."
"We should therefore set priorities, tackle what needs to be done and cancel everything else", proposed hans-dieter kern (SPD). This was also the opinion of mayor falkenstein. Sewer renovations, for example, could not be underestimated. Harald eger (CSU) praised the plan over the years: "we have to set the course for the coming years!"
In terms of sewer rehabilitation, the financial plan identified the castle, church and freihofgasse and the church square as the main thing for the year 2014. The canal renewal along the B 22 in neuses am sand (570,000 euros) was also planned for 2014 and the one in stadelschwarzach (700,000 euros) for 2015. All other sewer renovations, including nine in prichsenstadt streets and roads and others in stadelschwarzach and neuses am sand, are listed under the heading "later", that is, after 2016. "We will tackle these channels in the next ten years", announced the mayor. "We would have had more leeway for sewer renovations if the report for prichsenstadt had finally been available, said wolfgang brosche (SPD). The mayor commented that he had already called for the report twice.
There were many discussions, ranging from renovation to sale, about the owl tower, the repair of which is budgeted at 200,000 euros for 2013. "We should "enchant or give away" this one, suggested reinhard muller (local spokesman neudorf). Dem held 2. Mayor alfons saugel countered that there was already a decision on the redevelopment. The majority of eleven votes to two supported the mayor's proposal to leave the amount for the time being and to try to sell the tower within a year.
There was also discussion about the new fire station for laub, where the majority of the council did not consider it fair to postpone the final inspection from 2013 to 2015, which is why the amount of 330,000 euros was left unchanged. Also included is the renovation of the school gymnasium (1,600,000 euros), for which, however, no amount is shown in any of the categories.

A "constant back and forth
Ursula reiche (CSU) wanted to reduce the number of classrooms in the new elementary school "because the number of schools is declining". This upset helmut happel (STOL): "why did we actually have the march meeting to discuss the classrooms decided?" Harald ruckert (CSU) criticized "the constant back and forth" and requested the request to the school association of wiesentheid for the inclusion of the schools and the cancellation of the funds for the new construction of the elementary school. The motion was defeated with two votes in favor. Reich's proposal to bring the classrooms up to standard size was also rejected with five votes in favor. Only one vote was cast in favor of brosches' motion to discuss the school in the next financial plan.
The barrier-free access to the medical center (60,000 euros) was approved unanimously, while brosches' proposal for an elevator (180,000 euros) was rejected with two votes in favor.
On the cemetery expansion in laub (250,000 euros), martin ebert argued that the trend was toward urn burial. "This amount is therefore too high", he argued. Brosche's motion to delete this item was rejected by seven votes to six.
100,000 euros for the renovation of the pharmacy were michael glos jun. Too much: "we should cancel these funds." Hans-dieter kern advised "to keep our feet on the ground, because we can't sell houses like this. This was also the opinion of mayor adolf falkenstein, who was concerned with ensuring the continued existence of the pharmacy in this house. His request for the investment got the majority of nine votes against four.
Harald eger's proposal to leave the amount of 300,000 euros for the renovation of the TSV hall in the financial plan received one more vote, and with eight votes to five the committee voted in favor of helmut happel's proposal to use the sum of 300,000 euros for the renovation of agricultural bridges in 2014.

The burgers have to go for it
"And how do we get a grip on this financial situation??", wolfgang brosche wanted to know. The mayor replied that once again, attention had to be paid to cost recovery and the "sewage story" could only be financed by the burghers.
"We should also talk about the house and property tax levy rates", said harald eger. However, a comparison with other municipalities showed that prichsenstadt is not much below the county average in this matter. "Now the cat is out of the bag and the burger's eyes are opened", brosche commented on eger's proposal, saying that he did not want to take it lying down: "when else should we talk about finances than during financial planning??" His motion to discuss the levy rates on the spot was rejected with six votes in favor and seven against.

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.
