Middle Franconia: pregnant sheep bucks out and flies into pool - police with rescue operation

Police rescues pregnant sheep: the sheep was actually grazing in the eastern pegnitz valley. But unlike his herd, the trusty beast dared to take a walk in the mogeldorf of central franconia. This ended finally in the pool of a private property. The resident had alerted the police when he saw the sheep walking through his garden. USK officers went to mogeldorf to take a closer look at the situation.

"It’s extremely frustrating," confessed the alpine director in beaver creek, america. "Whenever we were just about to catch up with the world’s best, these accidents happen to us."

Still on friday evening stechert was examined in detail by the knee specialist in vail – in a preliminary diagnosis the german team had still assumed "90 percent" of the third cruciate ligament rupture of the 27-year-old oberstdorfers. At least a slight all-clear was given: a thorough examination revealed a tear of the aubenband in the left knee, a contusion of the fibula head and a slight injury to the cartilage.

No vacancies are likely to become available in the federal police any time soon.

No vacancies are likely to become available in the federal police any time soon.

A young man brandishes a vodka bottle, harasses passers-by and repeatedly gets menacingly close to the railroad tracks. "That’s a pretty realistic scenario for berlin.", says andrea nahles before watching a training session at the bamburg federal police training center. The young police officers do their job well, the drunk is controlled and led away under the eyes of SPD celebrities, police colleagues and a considerable number of journalists.
Bamberg, erlangen, furth – in blistering heat, andrea nahles is on the road in franconia to support her local comrades two and a half months before the bavarian state election. In bamberg, where she last visited in 2012, the only thing on the agenda was the federal police training center. "The tasks of the federal police have grown considerably and we have invested a lot of money here", says nahles. There are currently 6200 federal police trainees, around 2200 of them in bamberg. Center director thomas lehmann gives visitors a brief overview of the land, which currently covers about 100 hectares. "We have almost every usable building site in use. It’s not as if the federal police simply said, "we need a giant land", lehmann explains. "We feel super comfortable in bamberg", confirms the president of the federal police academy, alfons aigner. The number of applicants is also good, with around seven applications for every training place. Aigner was not the only one to appreciate the SPD chairwoman’s statement about the center’s future prospects: "i believe that we will have a large number of trainees here over a long period of time. You can’t have an effective state without personnel."
On this issue, even the mayor of burgundy, andreas stark (SPD), is a realist. The city had a clear agreement with the federal police that buildings were released as soon as they were no longer needed for training purposes. But this is probably not to be expected before 2024. Starke also pointed out: "the federal police are an absolute gain for the city. It means more safety and thus also more quality of life."
Strong wish for the SPD chairwoman goes in a different direction. He calls on andrea nahles to exert her influence on the maximum occupancy of the future bamberger anchor center. A maximum of 1,500 refugees were to be housed there, and buildings could then be removed from the reception facility to create favorable living space. "Those who continue to maintain a silent reserve for 3,400 refugees will have a credibility problem", says strong.
Nahles takes up the request and then listens to the concerns of young police officers, administrators and trainers (no permanent positions, temporary contracts). Because of the upcoming state parliamentary elections in october, she has previously dealt out a fair amount of blame to the CSU. The CSU, with its "shabby, defamatory policies aimed at the weakest," has been the "worst of the worst nahles says that the CSU has received the blame, referring to the latest polls (according to bayerischer rundfunk, the CSU was at 38 percent). It refers its criticism to the asylum policy and terms used by minister-president markus soder such as "asylum tourism". The SPD is trying to combine a realistic refugee policy that does not overburden municipalities with humanitarian principles. In bavaria, the CSU has now been in power for 70 years, and it is time for something different. Nahles must admit, of course, that even the SPD’s survey results (13 percent) cannot yet trigger a storm of jubilation.
The party leader was reminded of the long and eventful history of the SPD by a highly nutritious gift from her bamberg friends: before nahles set off on her journey, she was given 155 bottles of red beer from a brewery in the district for 155 years of SPD service.


Harrow, cultivator and roller

Within the framework of the "boden:standig" initiative in the project area of seblach, the coburg office for food, agriculture and forestry (AELF), the office for rural development of upper franconia (ALE) and BBV landsiedlung had invited to a joint field demonstration. Seven different tillage implements for cultivating an intercrop stand before corn sowing could be assessed in action on a trial field between dietersdorf and hattersdorf. The children were automatically entered into a raffle for a "pit lane ticket". The usual equipment of local farmers, such as cultivators, disc harrows and power harrows, was used, as well as equipment ordered exclusively to seblach: a machine equipped with loosening tines for strip tillage, a special power harrow with so-called samurai tines, and a cutter roller in combination with a flat cultivator. Plant cultivation advisor anton weig from AELF coburg presented the different devices and assessed the work result. The most important factors are maintaining the optimum cultivation depth, good mixing of the cultivated soil and complete mechanical control of the weeds present.

Food of the rain worm

Also very important is how much mulch material is left on the ground surface after tilling. The aim here is to achieve as high a degree of coverage as possible, so that in the event of heavy rainfall the arable land continues to be protected from erosion to the best possible extent. In addition, the plant residues remaining on the surface serve as food for earthworms.
In addition to the different techniques, the interested farmers present were also able to compare different varieties of intercrop mixtures that had already been used in the field as a show trial in the fall of 2017. Water consultant gesche petersen from the AELF coburg briefly presented the different intercrops that had been sown.
The intensive discussion once again showed that farmers are very interested in ways to improve soil and water conservation.

Service beyond the usual mab

service beyond the usual mab

There was plenty of reason to say thank you at the service in the euerfeld parish church st. Michael. The evening was not only a celebration of thanksgiving, but also a time to thank the long-serving sacristan eugen seltsam for more than 40 years of faithful service, as well as the three retiring altar boys and other deserving members of the church administration and parish community.

Parish priest anton rossner emphasized that eugen seltsam had rendered outstanding services to the parish "far beyond the call of duty". As early as the summer of 1958, he took over the office of sacristan under the then pastor eberhard pfirmann, a position he held until 1986. Ten years later, he was called back to the vestry by pastor erich seitz. 2012 he gave up his office due to illness.

Visit to the museum of handicrafts

Visit to the museum of handicrafts

The handicraft museum of the dettelbach kolping family became a special experience for the four to six year old visitors from the house for children st. Sebastian, dettelbach to a special place of experience. The museum guide franz korber buried the curious guests and opened the museum in faltertor. As soon as they entered the walls, the children were transported to a different time, according to the kindergarten's message. Tools from 15 old trades are displayed in the exhibitions. The children marveled at the original shoemaker's workshop. The presentation of the old tools and machines delighted the young visitors. In the departments they discovered many interesting exhibits: a bicycle with a rope brake, a mousetrap for four mice, a treasure chest, a toilet chair, a bucket iron that is almost impossible to lift up. Through his stories and explanations, franz korber built a bridge between the museum objects and the children's world of life. Touching and touching the exhibits was explicitly allowed. The highlight of the tour was a visit to the newly refurbished mannerturm, formerly used as a prison. The lively insights, but above all the views of the old town from the tower walkway, made the visit to the museum so exciting and interesting. "Today we were in a completely different time!" The children said enthusiastically at the end of the tour.

Ducks killed in brandenburg after bird flu outbreak

Ducks killed in brandenburg after bird flu outbreak

After the outbreak of H5N1 avian influenza in a duck fattening farm in brandenburg, the culling of the entire flock of a good 14 ducks began on saturday morning.000 animals started. A one-kilometer exclusion zone will be in place around the farm for 21 days, said tobias seyfarth, spokesman for the district of markisch-oderland. All poultry under surveillance. Keepers of animals in the area are urged to report any symptoms of illness immediately and to keep all animals within the exclusion zone.

H5N1 avian influenza was detected at the farm near seelow in the oderbruch region, but in a less dangerous "not highly pathogenic" form variant. The friedrich loeffler institute (FLI) on the island of riems in the baltic sea provided information on this on friday evening. There is no danger to the population, the federal ministry of agriculture assured.

Plastic-free shopping is becoming a challenge: an experience report

Plastic lurks almost everywhere. The shelves in discounters and supermarkets are full of them. One plastic packaging after the next. Among other things, fruit and vegetables are on my shopping list. It can't be that difficult to buy peppers, tomatoes and a cucumber without plastic gauze, can it?? But in the museums section of the supermarket there is first of all disillusionment. The wrapped cucumber, symbolic for me of unnecessary plastic wrapping, lies right next to the unwrapped cucumber.

Clear where my hand goes. But it should not go on so simply. Peppers, like many other fruits and vegetables, can be bought in bulk. Also tomatoes. However, I have no choice here. Cherry tomatoes, roma tomatoes, vine tomatoes – all wrapped in plastic. Only one of six varieties comes without plastic gauze.

Declaration of war: csu wants to conquer the chair at coburg city hall

For parties, after the election campaign is always a little before the election campaign. For example, rene boldt as CSU district chairman of coburg city used the late-scheduled new year's reception of the coburg christian socialists with bavaria's new digital minister judith gerlach as a podium for pithy announcements on the 2020 municipal elections in coburg.

Pithy words

With a view to the success of the CSU candidate in the runoff election for the new district council in coburg, boldt gloated: "sebastian straubel has shown that you can also win in red strongholds." Verbally, boldt then immediately rallied for the coburg municipal elections in spring 2020 and postulated with pithy words: "we will for the first time conquer the chief seat in the city hall."
