Forchheimer mauerscheiber meets sigmund freud

How should the former altstadtfest stay in the future?? The dispute has dominated public opinion for weeks now. In the editorial office, people are coming forward who insist that the name "mauerscheiber" should be used must never fall again. At the same time, the city is holding a vote that is being boycotted by the CSU, which wants to return to its old name.

This has called on wednesday the gastronomes on the plan. In an open letter to the "city representatives remind the seven landlords (losteria, arizona, stadtlockal, lubbis, zollhaus, parkcafe, elgringo) that the gastronomy financially bears the lowen share and "therefore also a say" expect. Host spokesman christoph kauer told the FT he could not understand the excitement: "the name mauerscheiber-fest was brought up by ulli raab during the conception of the tourism concept and was given rough approval there." In the open letter it says: "we see the current discussion, especially in the social media, quite critical and missing the actual point. We talk only about the name and not about the content and background of the product."

That so much of the "mauerscheiber" the speech is, surprises also city council paul nerb (FBF). "Not that forchheim had no other problems", he notes ironically and reminds of the town hall renovation or the "unclear purpose" of the kolpinghaus: "none of these objectively important projects has made such waves and provoked such bitter disputes as this attempt to name a festival."

Anti-cc demonstration in coburg: right-wingers form up

"For us, the CC is by no means a non-political association", it is said in a press release of the initiative "student unions". With the demonstration on saturday evening, the initiative wanted to draw attention to the sexist and nationalistic attitude of the CC in their opinion. This was a purely male association whose members repeatedly opposed gender equality.
Saturday’s protests began with a kick-off rally at albertsplatz, from where the march, which was attended by around 150 mostly young women and men, moved on to an intermediary rally in the direction of marktplatz (market square). The target of the march was the kongresshaus rosengarten, where the CC was holding its festive ball that evening. To prevent the demonstrators from reaching the entrance to the congress center, the police set up barriers.
Both the organizers and the police confirmed that the demonstration took place without any major incidents. Only in the run-up there were, according to the police, three preliminary arrests for insulting public officials. With the high police presence and strict controls, clashes between the left-wing demonstrators and participants of the whitsun congress were successfully avoided.
Since the demonstrators had carried side banners, which had been strictly forbidden by the public order office and the police, the police had to stop the train for a short time. Head of operations joachim mittelstadt justified this with the fact that one knows from experience that behind such side banners hidden bottles could be thrown or fireworks could be rounded up.
The organizers of the protests considered the police’s excessive use of force as "unacceptable", as it says in another press release from sunday.



Since the police had permanently accompanied the demonstration closely, the effect of the attack had been limited.
"This behavior on the part of the police and the authorities does not lead to more security, but only serves to incarcerate the participants, A spokesman for the initiative criticized. Despite these restrictions, the demonstration was a powerful protest against the CC and fraternities in general.
The organizers themselves speak of "about 200 antifascists", who protested against the coburg convention ("CC") in the coburg city center on saturday evening. On the fringes of the demonstration, members of the extreme right-wing scene were also seen time and again. However, apart from minor verbal skirmishes, there were no incidents.

At the intermediate rally at the market square and in front of the starting points loreley and ratskeller, CC members were urged to distance themselves from extreme right-wing ties.

Schaeffler sells indirect stake in conti

The french company intends to use the proceeds to pay off part of the billions of euros in debt it had to incur to acquire conti. Schaeffler announced this on monday evening.

"The net proceeds of the share placement will be used to repay liabilities of schaeffler holding in accordance with the terms of the agreement," the company announced in a statement. The offered share package currently corresponds to a value of 1.695 billion euros. The shares are to be offered to a "broad international investor base".

After the sale, however, the schaeffler family will remain the main shareholder of continental AG with a direct stake of 49.9 percent. The french family-owned company confirmed that it remains committed to its long-term strategic investment in conti. The company will not further reduce its share in the automotive supplier in the next six months.

Musical encouragement

Of course, the audience and the musicians were sorry that the concert could not take place outdoors as planned. Finally, the event is called "songs in a parson’s garden". But the uncertain weather situation caused the whole thing to be moved to the parish hall. But that didn’t change anything about the power inherent in the mix of songs by well-known songwriters and erik konietzko’s own compositions. "No fists were flying and no one was unwell, good was winning hands down and every smile was genuine", as it says in hermann van veen’s "could you do magic"?.

Hungry for life and upbeat

For a long time now, erik konietzko has no longer been a blank slate musically. Anyone who knows him and has heard him play and sing alongside leon buttner and lena schmid as he did on saturday evening will know that he has two musical souls living in his chest. When he sings georg danzer’s "ruf mi ned o", the song is a musical expression of a love exchanged, a humorous introduction, or a declaration of love to franconia ("sambesi") by wolfgang buck. It is a vocal and instrumental expression of the hunger for life. Like his musical idols, the bad staffelsteiner also deals with more serious topics, ruttelt on. The ravaging of the human soul is nevertheless accompanied by an optimistic attitude.



Konstantin wecker’s "say no" appeal!" For example, an appropriate message carried to the approximately 70 listeners to intervene courageously and stand up in the face of injustice.

Konietzko had also included some of his own compositions in the concert. "Invisible about showing your true self and "over your shadow" that we often stand in our own way when we want to get involved in something new or tackle something that has been on our minds for a long time, but which we have not yet been able to decide to do. Premiere celebrated in the evangelisches gemeindehaus konietzkos "alle menschen suchen nach dem sinn" (all people search for meaning), a song in the genre of "spiritual songs.

joyful parishioners celebrated margarethenkarmes

"First things come differently and secondly than one thinks …" Wilhelm busch once printed it like this. The sentence was fitting for the numerous worshipers of the margarethenkarmes in robfeld, it was fitting for the churchwardens who managed a rough service, and it was fitting for pastor meyer zu horste, now new as guest pastor, who had been looking forward to this service and had prepared it wonderfully. She wanted to leave neustadt at 1 p.M. So that she would be there in time for the service at 2 p.M. The situation was, however, that the service was already scheduled for 1 p.M., forcing two church leaders to make spontaneous interludes. Whereby … They did not feel forced, but developed an extremely creative potential. First the guests were allowed to listen to the wonderful sound of the bells for minutes, then a small organ concert by sonja putz, sovereignly ina reumann began the introduction and was in top form, the song board brought with the gospel "siyahamba" the first song of the evening the nave of the church was shaking, and certainly continued to do so for hours with great and visible enthusiasm. Prayer, reading and the ship called the congregation sailed back and forth in the harbor.



Just in time for the sermon, the pastor stood in front of the applauding congregation and was simply delighted that her pulpit address, which dealt with gifts, talents and each other, almost became a self-runner.
Around the church the festival continued happily, all the shady places were booked out in the scorching heat, the robfeld musicians kept the visitors in good spirits as always, while the youngest guests preferred paddling pool and boat. There were three winners in a quiz prepared by pastor meyer zu horste about the upcoming church board elections. The new KV candidates also introduced themselves and were asked three joke questions, which they answered in a cool and relaxed manner.
It was a good day, in the evening it was only a small pile when cleaning up, but the feeling that you have a lot of possibilities, if you tackle it together, can’t be compared with anything in the world. Sonja putz

Barn ablaze with flames

On wednesday evening, the roof truss of a barn was completely destroyed by fire. What finally triggered the fire is not known at the moment. In the meantime, the wurzburg criminal investigation department has taken over further investigations.
In the johann-eck-strabe, the owners of the directly adjacent residential building had a fire at about 18.45 o’clock a loud blow perceived. When they looked outside, they saw sparks flying from the barn. The roof structure was ablaze just a short time later. In the aftermath, a large contingent of several fire brigades with almost 100 men arrived, who had the fire under control relatively quickly. Nevertheless, it could not be prevented that the roof truss of the barn burned down completely together with a photovoltaic system mounted on it.
In the barn there were numerous machines.



The extent to which these machines were damaged by the fire has not yet been determined.
The town center of hopferstadt is currently (21.30 o’clock) still blocked. In the meantime, officers of the criminal investigation department of the wurzburg police have begun their investigations on the spot. It is not yet possible to say whether the fire was caused by a storm that was raging at the time.

Number of complaints about annoying advertising calls has dropped

Advertising calls and telephone rip-offs have apparently annoyed the people of bundesburg less so far this year. The number of complaints to the federal network agency in the area of telecommunications has fallen sharply.

In the first six months of this year, just under 76.000 consumer complaints received, a good 39.000 fewer than in the same period the year before, as the federal network agency told the german press agency. The bonn authority is responsible for combating the misuse of telephone numbers.



Now the power can freely fly

The new parish community of wiesentheid, stadelschwarzach and kirchschonbach could be seen on sunday in the st. Mauritius church in wiesentheid see and traces. Many altar boys from all three parishes, choir leaders, musicians, mesners, lectors, organists, senior leaders, scouts, liturgists, church administrators and, last but not least, many faithful from all three parishes were present.
It could not have been more fitting for the spiritual than the song "ein haus voll glorie schaute" ("a house full of glory looked") being allowed to enter the fully occupied parish church. Next to the host and now "boss out of ten gotteshausers, pastor peter gottke, domkapitular christoph warmuth was a special guest on sunday in wiesentheid, who also acted as main celebrant.
Gottke recalled that the parish community has existed and been lived for a long time. The first cooperations took place as early as 2005. Since october 2011, he has officially been pastor of the parishes of stadelschwarzach and kirchschonbach. "Today is also the day of the legal act of erection", he explained. "To ensure that everything is correct on paper, too." He described the official act as a sign of a new beginning and of a community that is growing ever closer together.
At the beginning of the service, domkapitular war-muth handed over the official charter of the diozese of wurzburg, signed by bishop friedhelm hofmann, to the three parish council chairmen sabine halbritter (wiesentheid), michaela schafferhans (stadelschwarzach) and bernd reitwiesner (kirchschonbach).
Different members of the three parishes filled together a glass balloon with water. "Just as the water mixes in the balloon, life in the new parish community should also mix and bring much strength", gottke wished.

Many joint projects




The growing community is already evident in more and more joint projects and activities. An example: the choir "venimus under the direction of johanna neuerer, with members from all three parishes singing. For the first time this year, fronleichnam was also celebrated together with a service in the schoolyard prichsenstadt.
"I am sure that we will succeed", said domkapitular warmuth at the end of the festive service.
The initiative for an ecclesiastical community of wiesentheid, stadelschwarzach and kirchschonbach came years ago from the wurzburg diocese, not least because of the problem of the shortage of priests. A contract on the cooperation had to be worked out in advance. In addition to pastor gottke, deacon karl leierseder, sister margit from the marienhaus kirchschonbach and the respective parish councils were very active here. In addition to the division of the services, when which parish is visited by the pastor, it is also regulated, among other things, what the parish community organizes and carries out together and what will continue to be carried out by each parish alone.
 

The salt of the earth and the light of the world

The cathedral chapter thomas teuchgraber, who was born in lichtenfels and grew up in staffelstein, gave the consecration in the "heilige familie" parish church in the context of a festive service with concelebration of pastor roland neher of the parish "our dear lady, pastor george thottankara of the "holy family" parish and the islinger pastor henryk chelkowski 56 young people of the pastoral area bernhard von clervaux the sacrament of confirmation. The confirmands had been prepared for this important event in their lives over the course of half a year by pastoral advisor thomas reich, who also provided musical accompaniment for the service with the band unikat.
Teuchgraber spoke in his sermon about the spirit of god that should descend on the confirmands through the laying on of hands and the anointing with chrisam, so that they can be salt of the earth and light of the world according to the motto of the confirmation preparation. The anointing and thus also the confirmation should not only be a simple event, it should rather get under the skin, just as jesus once addressed and impressed his young people, so that they got under their skin and followed him.
The clergyman also expressed the hope that the sponsors would not only stand behind the young people during confirmation, but that they would also support them later in life.
