Who gets the key to the Burgerspital?

Marco Meissner The search for a new, permanent use for the vacant Burgerspital has been going on for years. In the meantime, there are two starting points that are causing heated discussions in the city council as well as in the town meeting. Should the building complex be used for senior citizens, as in the past, or should it be used for the benefit of young people??

The council wants to make a decision on this only after a feasibility study has been carried out. Until then, the interested parties can further elaborate their positions and thus contribute to objectification. Both sides are desperate for such a space.

“I have nothing at all against the youth”, assures Hanni Wachter. The chairwoman of the Kronach seniors’ advisory council is nevertheless very skeptical about hospital use by the district administration and youth organizations. The hospital as an office she does not like to imagine so at all. Which is not to say that younger people should be excluded. She could imagine a community room in which the youth would also be welcome.

From the Andes to Ludwigsstadt

Although Heiko Beyer has traveled extensively and toured many large cities such as Bern, Dusseldorf and Cologne, his “live multivision” is still being presented on Friday, 24. November, in the hall of the savings bank Ludwigsstadt be something special: Because the photojournalist and producer will have an appearance in his hometown.

When you hear the 50-year-old talk, as he did on Tuesday evening at the opening of the exhibition “The Andes – 7000 kilometers across South America”, it’s hard to believe that he was able to do it in the entrance area of the savings bank Ludwigsstadt, then one considers, how one could describe the occupation or more appropriately the person Heiko Beyer. Thoughts like globetrotter, adventurer, photographer, cameraman, South America expert, author etc. come to mind.

On display at the exhibition are large-format pictures, such as of the Aymara woman Magdalena feeding a small llama, of the twin volcanoes Pomerape in Lauca National Park in Chile. The exhibition is intended to lead viewers to the multivision show on Friday, 24. November.

Nightly war of nerves around snack gangster ends bloodlessly

Nightly war of nerves around snack gangster ends bloodlessly

Police arrested him outside the snack bar on Friday. Instead of twelve hostages, the police later spoke of “supporters” of the 36-year-old.

The operator of the restaurant, who had a criminal record, was probably afraid of prison, the investigators said. The exact motive, however, is not yet clear. Preliminary proceedings are being initiated against him on suspicion of hostage-taking. According to the police, four people were slightly injured during the operation.

The 36-year-old called police on Thursday and threatened to blow everything up. Whether he meant what he said and whether the other people in the snack bar had been held by force could not be determined at first, said the head of the Freiburg police department, Alfred Oschwald.

Rosler wants to soften nature conservation for network expansion

Rosler wants to soften nature conservation for network expansion

“We have to talk to the EU about this. Talks are already underway at the technical level,” the minister responsible for network expansion told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (Thursday).

“Here it concerns above all the Fauna Flora Habitat as well as the bird protection guideline. We have to take care of that.”Everyone involved must be aware that the challenges of the energy turnaround must also be met with uncomfortable answers. “We would already be helped if, for example, we could suspend part of the EU rules for a time when crossing protected areas,” said Rosler.

The new Network Expansion Acceleration Act has already simplified planning and approval procedures. By the end of the year, the government wants to determine exactly where up to 3800 kilometers of new extra-high voltage lines will run to transport wind power from the north to the south.

End of a neustadt legend

End of a Neustadt legend

What began in 1923 with a small store for lemonade and confectionery, developed over generations into a real legend of the Neustadt retail trade. For decades, the name Golandsky stood for an unconventional range of products and opening hours that stretched the limits of what was permissible. At least. Now the cult store at Arnoldplatz closes. Peter Golandsky, owner in fifth generation, explains why.

“You would have had to live just in Nuremberg, with these goods”, he says. A store that offers Gothic jewelry and accessories on this area and in this selection, you will probably look in vain even in Nuremberg. “We had customers from London who said, “They don’t know anything like that at home either, says Peter Golandsky. But in Neustadt too few customers were looking for this offer, the walk-in customers of a big city pedestrian zone were missing. “And in Nuremberg to rent something is simply too expensive. This also does not pay off”, Peter Golandsky is convinced.

Ongoing change

The store has changed again and again in the more than 90 years of its existence – also structurally. To the confectionery came after the war alcohol and magazines. The assortment was constantly expanded. In the 1980s, when the law on closing times set strict limits, Harry Golandsky’s store saved many a late-night video night, as participants were often able to stock up on drinks, potato chips and the like even after 10 p.m. “The statute of limitations has expired. That’s why today you can say, so quite legal was not all”, says Peter Golandsky. The father had set up a restaurant at that time. It was allowed to open. The door across to the store was also open. This is how Neustadt – through the back door, so to speak – came to enjoy shopping facilities that the rest of the country was not to get until much later. You could count on Golandsky’s being open for business. “We have not been closed for a single day since 1974. There the father was once ill”, says Peter Golandsky and there is probably nothing more to say about it.

Itzgrund local council moved the meeting table outdoors

Itzgrund local council moved the meeting table outdoors

The municipal council “on tour”: various places in the municipal area were approached. Thus the underpass of the B 4 to the new building area Kapellenfeld. The bridge would be in need of renovation. However, it will be demolished and rebuilt in 2020. As Mayor Werner Thomas (SPD) explained, this gives the community the opportunity to obtain a six-meter-wide passage with a sidewalk. This increases the clarity. Construction time is estimated to be half a year. The costs are estimated at up to 800,000 euros, with a 70-percent subsidy in question.

In the adjacent “Kapellenfeld” development area a noise barrier is currently being built to reduce traffic noise from the B 4 highway. Currently, Thomas said, of the 19 building plots, 16 have been sold and construction activity is in full swing.

For the core path program announced

The core path from Lohhof to Merkendorf is nearing completion. 95 percent are finished. “It looks very pleasing”, according to the mayor. The community link road has a width of 3.50 meters and on both sides there is a load-bearing verge of one meter, and there are also passing points. Actually it is an agricultural way, Thomas emphasized. He hopes that the construction measure can still be settled this year. Another core path, namely the one from the Aussiedlerhof on the height of Herreth in the direction of Puchitz, is also to be renewed with a section on a width of 3.50 meters. The trail was submitted for the core trails program to receive funding.

Herzogenaurach walked new cultural paths in 2018

Herzogenaurach walked new cultural paths in 2018

The city broke new ground this year with its annual cultural focus events. Instead of the previous culture days, which were basically rather culture weeks, they organized a coherent culture festival lasting several days. And the topics have also changed. While the selection of the last years referred to the different points of the compass, from now on a catchword is given at the culture festival. This year it was the revolution, next year the imagination will be called upon.

Pure culture

The hin&herzo cultural festival took place at the end of September in the main street, on the market square and in the castle courtyard. Three and a half days of pure culture in every nook and cranny of the city center.

For the first time, one can be very satisfied, although “we also want to learn and get better.” This is how Helmut Biehler, the head of culture at Herzogenaurach City Hall, summed up the event. 210 artists were in action during the three days of the event. The number of visitors was estimated at around 5000, including “many new faces” were discovered in the region.

Green thumbs up for nature

Green thumbs up for nature

Eckehard Kiesewetter “All Intentional, says Dirk Kammlott, referring to areas in his garden that other landowners might have long since killed off with a hoe or secateurs: At Silke and Dirk Kammlott’s home on the edge of the Jesserndorf district of Ebern, stinging nettle and wild herbs also have their place, and the withered bee pasture is allowed to remain. “Because it provides habitat for insects”, says the host as he leads a group of about 50 through his green paradise. There is plenty of blooming beauty to admire, but also lush splendor of vegetables and fruits. A prime example of how the district consultants Guntram Ulsamer and Johannes Bayer envision a residential and kitchen garden according to ecological standards.

A necessity

It is clear that this paradise has won an award in the “Nature in the Garden” competition deserves. The district association for horticulture and land care Hassberge has announced the competition for the third time. It is intended to sensitize the population, including garden owners not organized in an association, to the need for natural garden management and to highlight positive examples.

Not only Dirk Kammlott, a professional gardener in Ebern, but 30 other garden owners have earned a plaque made of clay this year because they see their property as a natural habitat for people and nature.

Moated castle mitwitz is on the test bench

Moated castle Mitwitz is on the test bench

It is idyllic – without a doubt. A fairy-tale castle, beautiful outdoor facilities. But does the Mitwitz moated castle meet the safety regulations for the individual events that are held there??

The fact that something could happen there – one might not even think of it at the sight. But you have to – after all, in the past year alone, around 80 events took place in the various rooms of the moated castle – the best known is certainly the Christmas market.

District councilor Albert Rubel (CSU) has already thought about this and asked about the safety precautions in a district committee meeting (we reported). “I was told that there was not even a second escape route. This would not be okay in any way, because the county holds many events there. I feel a responsibility there as a district councilor”, Rubel explained at the time. District Administrator Oswald Marr (SPD) appeased. The escape routes are definitely available, only technical installations such as a sprinkler system are missing. “That is why the fire department is always called in for larger events”, says the district administrator.

Wc house for culture barn

WC house for culture barn

The Mangold estate in the heart of the city is revived. “Another vacancy less”, Mayor Jurgen Hennemann (SPD) was pleased with the plans submitted by the new owner at the most recent meeting of the building committee.
According to this, the businessman and craftsman plans office space in the front part towards Kapellenstrabe and apartments in the rear part up to a new dwarf gable to be built on top.
In addition, he would like to create a toilet house in the courtyard as a new building, as the rear barn is intended for art events and flea markets, said the mayor.
In addition, the property is being discussed as a headquarters and contact point for the citizens’ network community under discussion. “I am jubilant that a decades-long vacancy will end and a house in the old town will be used for residential use and possibly even more”, rejoiced the head of the town.
City planner Jurgen Bergmann also had no reservations. Pitch questions were not discussed at all.
Another commercial building undergoes a change: At Elektro Dietz, a warehouse in the rear building becomes two apartments.
Two comments came from Thomas Limpert (Free Voters). Thus he suggested handicapped parking spaces near the entrance to the triple gymnasium. Further he wanted to know what was at the photovoltaic plans near Fischbach? Such a project in the direction of Siegelfeld is under discussion, replied the mayor, as in Bavaria such facilities on low-quality farmland would be approved again.
