Johannisthal couple marries among flowers and trees

Johannisthal couple marries among flowers and trees

The church bells are ringing, the bride is walking down the aisle and her future husband is waiting for her at the altar. This, or something like it, is how most people picture a wedding.

At the wedding of daniela and andreas hahn from johannisthal, there was no priest and no church blessing. For this, the couple on 7. August in the middle of the forest of ebneth (district lichtenfels) a shamanic ceremony celebrated. For the two, it was clear that they did not want to marry in church, although they are baptized catholic and protestant. But the christian church has not been an issue for the two for a long time. "We were sure that this is our thing", daniela tells about the wedding. Shamanism has always interested them.

Andreas and daniela wanted to get the blessing of nature. Because this is the focus of shamanism. As a suitable place for their wedding andreas and daniela have chosen a romantic forest clearing in ebneth. "Ebneth is an ancient place of power and therefore optimal for such a wedding", daniela explains.

Greens want to stop the road

Bernhard panzer it is a clear announcement: the city is to cancel the construction project "south bypass" with immediate effect. Behind this demand are the green group and the city council of the "party". The city council is scheduled to meet on 14. July deal with it.

The applicants cite a change in people’s awareness as justification. "Our city needs mobility for tomorrow instead of yesterday’s solutions", it says in the application. Work behavior is changing, with home offices on the rise, which is now becoming apparent in the corona crisis. The number of commuters will therefore continue to decline. To make matters worse, the climate problem is the central task of humanity in the 21st century.The 21st century is.

"Biotope will be destroyed"

Literally, it is said in the motion sent by the green faction chairman peter simon: "so we do not understand why we as a city want to put at least 40 million euros of money, which we no longer necessarily have available because of corona, into the road construction project southern bypass." especially since this would destroy one of the few green lungs and biotopes of herzogenaurach. "The southern bypass is in fact a southern bypass", it continues. And: "let us therefore rather develop an alternative solution for the traffic problem in niederndorf!"

Brazil bans burning in amazonia for 120 days

Brazil bans burning in amazonia for 120 days

Faced with increasing pressure from foreign investors and domestic companies, the brazilian government has banned the burning of areas in the amazon and the pantanal for 120 days.

The decree, signed by environment minister ricardo salles and president jair bolsonaro, was published on thursday in the official gazette "diario oficial" and also came into force that day. Observers interpret the move as another attempt by the government to improve brazil’s image abroad.

On wednesday, vice president hamilton mourao had said the country’s armed forces could remain in amazonia until 2022 to fight deforestation and fires. The decree does, however, make exceptions for controlled fires for agricultural purposes outside the amazon and pantanal regions. Farmers use the fire to clear the soil cheaply and reclaim already deforested land for agriculture and cattle breeding. The amazon region recorded the worst fires for the month in 13 years in june.

Spderleichtert over success in sarrazin expulsion proceedings

Spderleichtert over success in sarrazin expulsion proceedings

The SPD has reacted with relief to the decision of the berlin state arbitration commission to expel thilo sarrazin from the party.

"I am really glad," said SPD secretary general lars klingbeil in berlin on friday. The SPD stands for cohesion. "Someone who promotes anti-muslim theories, someone who promotes racist theories, needs a clear stop sign."

On thursday, the decision of the SPD’s state arbitration committee became known, according to which the SPD may exclude the former berlin finance senator and best-selling author for conduct detrimental to the party. The proceedings were triggered by sarrazin’s book "hostile takeover: how islam impedes progress and threatens society," published in 2018.

Naturstrom is flying high with wind turbines

Naturstrom is flying high with wind turbines

Word has spread that electricity doesn’t just come out of the socket. However, it is still far too little known that he "naturally" also comes from the region: from naturstrom – one of the leading providers of renewable energies, which has one of its mainstays in forchheim.

"Am 16. April 1998, naturstrom AG was founded – by 16 committed people who were all active in environmental associations.", tells dr. Thomas E.Banning, who has been at the helm of the company since 2002. And since his former job for siemens brought him to heroldsbach, naturstrom’s division responsible for self-generated electricity is located in forchheim. In an office wing of the former blank building in nurnberger strabe, 35 employees are involved in everything that has to do with the creation of regenerative plants."We are active in all areas of renewable energies", explains thomas banning: photovoltaic technology (solar energy), biomass, wind and hydropower.
He notes, however, that the focus has shifted considerably: wind power, for example, which years ago was considered economically and technically unfeasible in the local region, is now also an issue in franconia.

Finding sensible locations

that the energy turnaround is heating up the minds and changing the landscape, this is also clear to the naturstrom manager. "With every plant there is always an impact on nature", says banning bluntly. But there is a balancing of interests: "how much secure energy supply do we want, and where do we need it??" it doesn’t make sense to put wind turbines next to the basilica in gobweinstein," explains banning. But this could certainly be done on the A73 near scheblitz, for example, where the wind is strong and the population low. In addition, an encroachment on the landscape next to a highway that already exists is bearable. For banning, the middle ground between nature conservation and secure energy supply is: "you have to do one without demonizing the other.
Naturstrom’s idea is eco-logical: "we don’t want to put as much as possible somewhere in order to maximize profits", emphasizes banning "but we want to find solutions in consultation with the local people that are capable of reaching a consensus.". It is a matter of finding sensible locations, he said. "We are not aiming for maximum performance, but rather a path to sensible energy generation" . That’s why naturstrom founds operating companies for wind farms. At the end of 2011, the first wind farm in the bamberg district to be built entirely by naturstrom was put into operation. Citizens can participate not only through profit participation rights (from 1000 euros), but also as co-partners.

Total regional

the idea behind such energy cooperatives: on the one hand, value creation is expanded in the region, on the other hand, investors from the region are attracted, and finally, energy supply is created for the region. Thilo jungkunz tries to win over local communities and associations for this idea in information events.
Natural power is on the upswing. "15 years and not a bit quiet, thomas banning’s anniversary headline in his naturstrom magazine. In the meantime, a sales volume of around 200 million euros has been achieved. In terms of electricity, that is 940 00 gigawatt hours supplied. Thomas banning impressively explains what this means: "you could supply forchheim with this for about eight years.

The next bridge construction site

After the thulba bridge near untererthal and the saale bridge in hammelburg, the next structure is now to be built: the bridge on the B 287 over the railroad line near euerdorf. It won’t be completely torn down and rebuilt, but it will still be extensively renovated.

Since one week the preparations for it run. Since then, vehicles have been directed across the bridge in a single lane. A traffic light regulates the. Because of this, traffic can back up, especially if several trucks are waiting in line, according to one motorist. The delays by the traffic light times hold themselves however on the whole in borders.

The construction work is divided into two sections: first one side of the roadway will be resurfaced, then the other. Everything runs the same, as the state building authority schweinfurt explains. First, a protective scaffolding is erected over the railroad line. After that, the protective equipment such as the sliding wall and railings will come away so that demolition of the canopy can begin. The asphalt layer and old waterproofing will also be removed down to the bare concrete, according to the state building department.

Marktgraitz building yard does not get top marks

Marktgraitz building yard does not get top marks

An inspection of the municipal building yard by an employee of the municipal accident insurance had revealed some small deficiencies, as became obvious in the recent meeting of the municipal council in the gymnasium.

The following main findings were made: there is no anchor point for rescue equipment, such as a so-called tripod, for entry into sewer shafts and enclosed spaces of sewage facilities. In the event of an accident in the enclosed space, employees could therefore not be rescued in time. The appropriate rescue equipment (tripod) is now purchased.

The fall edges at the storage floor and at the stairs to the storage floor have so far only been provided with insufficient fall protection or. The church was equipped with insufficient safety devices against falling objects. Appropriate fall protection must now be retrofitted. For the self-built storage floor, the permissible load capacity must be determined. Further, the circular saw is not equipped with an easily accessible emergency stop switch and must be retrofitted. Wood dust from sawing work must be collected using a low-dust vacuuming method. In this case, an approved industrial vacuum cleaner of dust class M must be procured.

A place to rest

Whoever hiked from the parking lot guckaspass to the kreuzberg, needed stamina. A resting bench or a place to rest on the way up to the kreuzberg did not exist. This is now different. A table and two benches invite to linger.
Klaus spitzl, managing director of the nature park association& biosphere reserve bavarian rhon was pleased that mayor georg seiffert and the vice chairman of the rhonklub zweigverein wildflecken ottmar bohn had come to the handover of this small recreational facility. "In the fall of last year, district administrator habermann had suggested installing a seating area on the path to the kreuzberg in the forest. The bavarian rhon nature park then contacted the town of bischofsheim as the owner of the forest area there and erected two benches and a table there", spitzl summarized.
The hikers’ parking lot guckaspass, located between langenleiten and wildflecken on the state road 2267, is very popular with visitors to the bavarian rhon. From there, hikes are undertaken to the kissinger hut or to the kreuzberg monastery. The districts of bad kissingen and rhon-grabfeld as well as the city of bischofsheim and the market town of wildflecken had established this hikers’ parking area in 2011. The route from there to the kreuzberg is also popular with pilgrims.
Ottmar bohn, who himself leads hikes to the kreuzberg, assured that the seating area would be an enrichment and would certainly be well received. Also for mayor georg seiffert it was natural to agree to the installation of this seating group.

The sacred building with the original preserved church interior by the prussian master builder and architect karl friedrich schinkel (1781-1841) will again serve as a branch of the alte nationalgalerie (old national gallery) on the neighboring museum island in the coming years.

Of the approximately 2100 sculptures in the museum’s inventory, 50 are now presented in the light-flooded nave of the church. The pieces made of bronze, plaster, marble or terracotta range in time from schinkel to the empire.
