Man-killing vamps, disco bunnies and tight guys

The "coarse ebs carnival ball apparently only three editions needed, in order to underpin its call as one of the outstanding meetings of the french carnival in the region. If you thought you were a real fool, you had to be there in ebermannstadt, and that's exactly what happened.

What is special about the "ebser fasching"?? Certainly the many picture-happy women who, as american cops, cowgirls and man-killing vamps, or as schoolgirls, indian girls and disco bunnies, loved to break out the heat in many a male ball-goer's eyes. On the other side with certainty also the crunchy guys in the "chippendales-look, good looking boys and mature seducer. All this has led to the fact that an actually quite usual carnival ball has become a rough event.

"Sudamerican temptation
The only ones on this evening, which one could feel a little sorry for, were the many honorary aids of the wiesent jesters. They helped at the entrance, in the checkroom, in the service and of course in the kitchen. The athletes from TSV and moggast, who are used to physical strain and movement, mixed refreshing drinks until the early hours of the morning.

Collective bargaining dispute:now lufthansa pilots want more money

On friday, two unions demanded viable offers for new collective bargaining agreements at europe’s largest air transport group.

In addition to the major trade union verdi, which on monday organized the sharpest warning strike in the history of lufthansa, the pilots of the cockpit union (VC) have now apparently also reached the end of their patience.

Ahead of the fourth round of negotiations, which begin next monday in frankfurt, verdi negotiator christine behle renewed her threat of further warning strikes.

Gobmitzer muhle spurt the climate change

"The muhle rattles on the rushing brook" – these times are long gone in tranquil dobertengrund. Here, too, technology has taken hold, making the muller’s job easier.

The ultsch muhle on the outskirts of gobmitz, a muhle that has been in the family for ten generations, has also undergone many changes over the years. The dilapidated water wheel had to be removed and was replaced by a turbine in 1937; instead of the millstones, metal roller mills now do the work. In our own laboratory, modern equipment measures the quality of the delivered grain. And something else has changed and thus has a major influence on the work of ludwig and his son andreas ultsch, the two master mullers: the climate. "In recent years it has become drier and drier, which has naturally affected the grain harvest", andreas ultsch tells us during the tour.

Smaller, drier and sproder

The grains have become smaller, drier and more sprouted. It’s not just a loss for farmers, he says. "Normal is a base moisture of 14 percent at delivery – for the 2019 harvest we are talking about ten to eleven percent." Ultsch mullers prefer to be milled with more moisture, which makes it easier to separate the husk from the flour kernel.

Johnson announces slight relaxation

The british prime minister boris johnson announced on sunday a cautious relaxation of the contact restrictions in the coronavirus pandemic for england.

"The number of deaths is tragic, the suffering immense," johnson said in a televised speech that evening. Nevertheless, it was possible to slow down the spread of the virus. Therefore, easing can now begin in slow steps, she said.

People are now being urged to be "vigilant" rather than stay at home. Those who can’t work from home should go back to work, respecting distance rules, johnson says. From next wednesday onwards, physical activities in the open air will be allowed again without restrictions, as long as they remain within the boundaries of one’s own household. Travel within england, for example to national parks or the coast, will also be permitted again.

The legendary silver mountain

Kronach- where the "tame rodach" from steinwiesen and the "wild rodach" from wallenfels, near erlabruck, rises the 518 meter high silver mountain. Originally called stiftsberg, it got its name from the silver ore that was once extracted from the depths of the mountain with blood, sweat and tears. Today, thorny shrubs and creepers almost symbolically cover the forest damage caused by the climatic curse and natural disasters of modern times on the steep slopes leading to the federal highway 173.

Along with weaving and flooring, mining was one of the most profitable industries in the franconian forest in earlier times. The mining of existing ores and rocks in the rodach valley is to be continued for the first time in the 13th year. The mining of lead was documented in the sixteenth century, when emperor friedrich II. To bishop heinrich of bamberg the mutation right on silver mines and "underground tithes" lent. However, the colliery does not seem to have taken off until around 1400. Under bishop philipp von henneberg, the mine at the silberberg was leased with all the rights to gold, silver, copper and lead to the miners and mining unions that were gradually formed.

In addition to the actual occurrence of the ores, two other factors were essential for their extraction and useful processing: the forest had to supply the charcoal necessary for processing and the flowing water the power to operate the hammer mills, which broke the ore-bearing rock and crushed it into a form necessary for smelting. The construction of the tunnels was favored by the deep thalers of the franconian forest. As a rule, it was not necessary to construct a vertical entrance shaft. This led from the bottom of the valley horizontally into the mountain.

Four dead and more than 40 injured in bus accident

About 40 other occupants were injured, some of them seriously. According to police, the bus came to a halt again on its wheels. The accident was apparently caused by a car driver who suffered minor injuries.

According to police, the 49-year-old’s car skidded between the kirchheim interchange and the bad hersfeld junction in the direction of the east and crashed into the bus. "We can’t say anything yet about why it (the car) skidded," said police spokesman thomas rodemer in fulda. "An expert will look at the vehicles," said another police spokesman.

It will take a few more days for the investigation to be evaluated, he stressed. The bus driver (52) lost control of his vehicle due to the force of the impact, the bus broke through the guardrail for about 100 meters and crashed down the embankment. His panes shattered, the roof was partially imprinted.

Gerd dallner wants to become pommersfelden mayor

Now it’s official: gerd dallner, who was already being talked about as a candidate for the chief seat in the pommersfelden town hall, has been elected as a candidate for mayor by the "freie wahlergemeinschaft (G) steppach". At the nomination meeting at the hopf inn in stolzenroth he received all the votes of the 43 eligible voters.

After mayor hans beck (WB sambach) is no longer available for the office, dallner will run in the march election against mayoral candidate angela nuber, who was nominated by the pommersfelden burgerblock. There do not seem to be any other candidates for the office in the municipality with its 3159 inhabitants.

Gerd dallner is a lawyer, 48 years old, grew up in steppach, is married and has two children. In the 2014 election he was elected to the town council from the g steppach list. According to his own words, he is "well wired" in the whole community. There are many reasons for this.

Since the mid-1990s, there has been an agreement between lebenshilfe and the city of forchheim: the playground at the john-F.-kennedy ring can also be used by the public. But the new contract between the two partners leaves one question open. If the meadow of the playground "is not used as a football field", then the ball games will be lost may be used (as it is expressly stated in the contract), ball playing is then fundamentally prohibited there?

The agreement between the city and lebenshilfe was updated by the city council in the main committee. Rechtsrat till zimmer pointed out that the city had invested 69000 euros in 2016 in the redesign of the playground; and is also responsible for the annual tree maintenance. "Therefore, the city wants to be sure that the playground will be used by the public." And also the rough lawn next to the playground equipment.

A lot going on in summer afternoons

Because mentally handicapped people often play there, however, the people in charge at lebenshilfe insist that fubball be dispensed with. As daniel ruckert, the head of administration at lebenshilfe, explained to the FT on friday, there is "a lot going on," especially on sunny summer afternoons on the playground: "then another soccer match, that can become difficult."

The six seasoned dairy farmers from lower franconia who gathered around the dining table of armin zehner in oberschwarzach (lkr. Schweinfurt), the fear of losing their livelihoods is driving them crazy. Milk prices do not cover their costs. Since 2015, when the milk quota that had applied until then was abolished without replacement, their economic situation has deteriorated further.
Something else unites armin zehner and his colleagues bernd horner (kleinlangheim), albert fuchs (eichelsee), heinz thorwarth (fuchsstadt), alfred greubel (elfershausen) and martin gleichmann (friesenhausen) are worried about making a living for themselves and their families: they are fed up not only with the political leadership in germany, but especially with the bavarian and german farmers’ associations. This is shown by their resignation.

Dumping prices deplored

The trade organization has long since ceased to represent the interests of milk producers. First and foremost, the food industry and the cooperative associations involved in many dairies were pulling the strings on milk policy, is the main accusation there.
Aim of the "ultra-liberal dairy policy whether, by demanding export-oriented agriculture in germany, it is possible to ensure permanent overproduction and thus dumping prices to the detriment of domestic dairy farmers.
They are in danger of drowning in the milk lake that they themselves have helped to create. But that is not all. This strategy in turn ruins the farmers in the countries where the extremely cheaply produced surplus from europe ends up. A vicious circle.
Dairy farmer zehner from oberschwarzach says: "the profiteers are all in cahoots. You run like against a wall." What particularly angers zehner and his professional colleagues is that they were never consulted, as was the case most recently with the abolition of the milk quota. Despite the lack of agreement, the farmers’ association always emphasizes that it speaks for the farmers.
Since the crisis has been denied for years and there is no instrument to react to the development, all six have turned their backs on the farmers’ association and joined the federation of german farmers’ associations dairy farmers (BDM) turned toward their new representative body.
They see the only hope for their farms in the milk market crisis management propagated by the BDM. However, the farmers’ association, which is once again backed by the dairy industry, continues to categorically reject this proposal.
The belief that a free market will once again solve the problem of overproduction as the cause of falling prices, as the farmers’ association hopes, is not true the abtrunnig dairy farmers from lower franconia lost. Armin zehner emphasizes: "the dissatisfaction is gross. Organizing joint action, however, is not wanted by the opposing side. They don’t want any puffed-up farmers. That’s why the farmers’ association is trying to put us in the radical corner, since we are now involved in the district teams of the BDM, for example."
It is important to them that their criticism is directed at the association’s leadership in bavaria and the federal government, but not at the base. Many farmers still do not want to believe that the smaller farms will be permanently rationalized in favor of an industrially structured sector.

European solution needed

Armin zehner and his colleagues around the table agree: "we need a european solution to the structural problems. We are drowning on the world market." They want to fight for this, while many of their colleagues had already given up.
Instruments for the financial support of dairy farmers, such as the quite sensible barn construction requirement, had turned out to be corset bars due to the jerk payments that would be due in the event of premature abandonment of milk production. The same applies to the temporal link to the dairies from which the farmers receive their milk money. Armin zehner: "we have to milk in order to be able to pay our debt service and to buy ourselves out of the market. Meanwhile, the food industry is guaranteed the cheap raw material milk in this time."
Price increases for drinking milk and butter by discounters were only a drop in the bucket, despite the well-intentioned and above all effective advertising approach. The reason: only 13 percent of the drinking milk produced ends up in the german retail trade. The solution worked out by the BDM envisages several steps up to capping the milk quota as the last stage, in order to reduce surpluses in times of crisis and to adjust the milk quota flexibly and fairly to demand until the market has calmed down again.
The six dairy farmers emphasized: "we don’t want to continue to be just a pawn in the game and to be led. We do not want to become recipients of almosen either. Rather, we want a means of intervening in the market and the quantity in the EU as soon as the milk price slips below the production cost threshold."
A glimmer of hope could be found in the outcome of the fulda conference of agriculture ministers from a "round table be a working group set up. It is to deal with the issue of supply management and also to promote it throughout the EU. Norbert vollmann

Truck crashes into traffic jam
