dialect poet krischker on

Stupid idea to write about a poet! As a journalist, there's not much you can do about it. The wish to present one's favorite place is allowed dr. Gerhard C. Krischker, however, also did not discount. So on! On a sunny spatsummer day, we go to the bischofsmuhle – and there he is, the award-winning dialect poet and editor in the flesh.

Auber poet and philosopher – vocations he will pursue in the rest of his life – he has been a young pensioner for a few weeks now. At the age of 65, he has been in the C.C. Buchner verlag had to give up its former office with its mahogany shelves. A bit of melancholy resonates when he talks about his work as an editor and the bamberg family business.

On the whole, however, he finds it quite all right that a new phase of life must now begin. As the rare example of a 21st century. Krischker has managed to get through his (professional) life without a cell phone or the internet until today. And he suspects that in the future this would not have continued for long.

Biodiversity: 'we are eroding our livelihood'

According to some scientists, the decline in biodiversity hangs over our society like a "sword of damocles".

"Something is brewing," says katrin bohning-gaese, director of the senckenberg biodiversity and climate research center in frankfurt am main. The scientist has long studied the decline of biodiversity in germany and central europe. In view of the growing problem, the leopoldina national academy of sciences will also be addressing this topic at its annual meeting in 2021 on friday.

The decline in biodiversity can be easily tracked by long-term population trends, says bohning-gaese, who is a member of the leopoldina. Especially in the case of the birds, there is a comparatively good data basis. Among many other species, she sees particularly strong declines in the birds of the agricultural landscape.

Difficult realignment at 1. Fc koln - Heldt disappointed

Saved, but not pacified – at the 1. FC koln still in a tense mood after happy ending in relegation battle. In view of the excitement surrounding the release of horst heldt, the club’s bosses were anxious to smooth the waters.

The fact that the manager had to leave the day after the successful relegation against kiel, of all things, caused surprise in many places. Heldt made no secret of his frustration. "This came as a surprise. I have to digest all this first and let it sink in. I liked to have been at the 1. FC koln, my heart is attached to this club," he told the "kolner stadtanzeiger".

Unlike heldt, alexander wehrle remains with the FC. Although the financial manager expressed his regret about the end of the cooperation with heldt, he still sees his future in koln. "In probably one of the most difficult financial situations in the club’s history, the club is fully aware of its responsibility. I could not look in the mirror if I was now say I no longer take responsibility. We have extreme challenges ahead of us," he said, referring to the economic consequences of the ongoing corona pandemic.

Why construction in the etzelskirchen development area can only begin now

They have been dragging their feet for a long time. At the 1. July finally saw the start of construction on the etzelskirchen west site. But for some of the house builders, the joy of being able to start with the home they had longed for is also mixed with displeasure. This is reported by one of the builders.

He bought the land from the city in mid-2016. Construction could begin in mid to late 2017, by which time the site would have been developed and the ditches and canal would be in place. This was the information provided by the city.

Start of construction postponed

But after a long wait, he and the 60 or so other builders learned that the development had still not been put out to tender. "It has been constantly delayed for a quarter of a year", says his partner.

Public service strikes: verdi announces first work stoppages in central franconia

Verdi has announced first warning strikes for thursday in the dispute over pay rates for federal and municipal employees. According to information from the union on wednesday, strikes are to be carried out primarily at municipal facilities, but also at federal water and shipping offices.

Unions announce massive warning strikes before easter

first actions are to take place in nurnberg and erlangen as well as in straubing, for example. In the lower bavarian municipality, the employees of the city administration want to stop working for three hours around noon. The municipal utilities are also to be affected by the warning strikes there.

in and out of the SPD forchheim

"Hello favorite city

Anna roser only joined the SPD in 2020. From absolute uberzeugung, as she says. The fact that she has been co-chair of the party in forchheim since the election in september clearly shows the direction the SPD wants to go in. Young, dynamic, dare something new. "I am a "convincer", says anna roser of herself. For years, she was not political at all. "But the more I looked into it, the more I realized that I wanted to play a part in shaping it."

Together with leo goksu, she became a member of the local executive committee of the SPD forchheim. Roser is 33 years old, goksu 40. "We are a good team, he is structured, I am creative", says anna roser and reports on the plans for the new dual leadership. "We have set up the SPD burghers’ office because we want to enter into even more dialogue with the burghers, also in person, as soon as the pandemic allows it." That’s why she feels so comfortable in the SPD, says the 33-year-old. The cohesion among the comrades is very rough and also discussions within the party are gladly seen. "I joined the SPD because I wanted to be active instead of just mucking about", says roser and at the same time invites "anyone who wants to get involved is welcome to come and try it out with us."

"Adios SPD"

Because the SPD in forchheim is no longer the party it once was, two old SPD warhorses from forchheim left in 2019. Albert dorn and reinhold otzelberger announced their resignation from the city council faction in january 2019.


At its most recent meeting, the municipal council selected the floor tiles and lamps for the schoolyard and churchyard, which are currently being redesigned. In addition, the design of the square was discussed, but no decisions have been made yet.

Mayor fridolin zehner (CSU) announced that despite the adverse weather in recent weeks, construction work is fully on schedule. An exact time, when they are finished, he does not want to say yet and means "at the latest in the fall."

Heuchelheim will soon have a second access road

The second section of the aschbach bypass from the traffic circle in the direction of schlusselfeld is apparently imminent. Nothing stands in the way of construction starting in summer 2013, interior minister joachim herrmann (CSU) recently wrote to state parliament member heinrich rudrof (CSU).

The construction of the state road will also fulfill a wish of the people of heuchelheim. With their request for a second eastern connection of the village to the new state road, the people of heuchelheim had turned to rudrof and were not disappointed. For the time being there should be only one access road from the traffic circle to heuchelheim.

The original plan was then changed and a second driveway for heuchelheim was added.

"If everything goes according to plan, we will be able to open the new road north of heuchelheim to traffic this year", the minister writes in his letter to rudrof.

Four accidents with fatal consequences occupied the region. In march, a motorcyclist who skidded into the guardrail between hannberg and rohrach died in an accident.

In may, a serious accident occurred on the bicycle path between herzogenaurach and beutelsdorf. At the height of the airfield, an 83-year-old bicyclist wanted to turn into a field path in front of a 28-year-old bicyclist. There was a collision with the young man who was about to overtake him. The younger cyclist fell to the ground and suffered severe head injuries, which resulted in his death.

Two insults, money forgery and one drunken driving offense. A 35-year-old man from bamberg narrowly escapes a long prison sentence at the bamberg district court. He is saved only by his search and a deal of all parties involved, which greatly simplifies and accelerates the process. After all, it was about the disturbance of public peace through the threat of criminal acts, in short bomb threats.

The commotion at the U.S. Embassy in berlin in the early morning hours of that 3. June is rough. A man named "jesus" has just been with underprinted number in the consulate general in frankfurt am main called. Through a pipe he comes out in the central office on the river spree. Through the horer can be heard terrible threats. "I am accused by german government. I have to go to america. If you don't help me, I'll blow up the police station."
