Headwind from lauter on the regional plan

The review of the draft update has shown that in the municipal area of the municipality of lauter, one priority area each for wind power plants should be designated in the deusdorf subdistrict on the border with stettfeld and in the lauter subdistrict on the border with stettfeld. These priority areas were located about 900 to 1200 meters southwest of lauter and about 900 meters each west of deusdorf and southwest of leppelsdorf.
However, the administration’s recommendation to approve this update and to see it as an important contribution to an ecologically sustainable energy supply in the region of upper franconia sparked off a very lively discussion in the municipal council, in which this project found less and less support from minute to minute. Second mayor hans-jurgen zitzelsberger (CSU) found it fundamentally unacceptable to pave over the beautiful lauter valley with wind turbines. Gunter zenk (freie wahler) took a more differentiated view, arguing that if you want to get away from nuclear power, you also have to bite the bullet on renewable energies. Hildegard weigmann (CSU) said that the planned wind turbines were far too close to built-up areas, and that lauter had already done its homework with a large number of photovoltaic plants. "Must we disfigure our homeland like this?, she asked the audience and received universal approval. The lauter council felt insufficiently informed, with too little background knowledge of how the regional plan is created and what criteria are used to designate areas for wind farms, were other concerns. Mayor armin postler (CSU) saw a considerable need for clarification and formulated the concerns of the council – which therefore voted unanimously against the draft resolution. Only when the municipal council clearly sees the dimensions of such wind turbines and the criteria according to which sites were chosen, can a well-founded decision be made.

Syria’s army says yes to ceasefire

Syria's army says yes to ceasefire

It is to come into force on friday morning with the beginning of the sacrificial festival eid al-adha. Internationally, the cease-fire announcement was buried.

The armed opposition had earlier agreed to the proposal by UN mediator lakhdar brahimi to halt the killing over the holidays. Observers, however, are skeptical that the cease-fire will actually hold.

After a long period of hesitation, the syrian army leadership announced on thursday evening in a statement broadcast on state television that it would support the cease-fire. She added, however, that the intention was to be able to react to violations. The reasons given for the military intervention were the activities of "terrorists" who were taking advantage of the situation to acquire weapons. The army must also intervene if fighters from neighboring countries cross the border into syria.

How to cycle safely through the city with your offspring

However, transport is not always easy. It is often impossible to find a parking space for the car and public transport is often overcrowded, so that our little ones can get out of sight. This is precisely when your own bike is ideal for summertime jaunts. However, what means of transport are there for the offspring and what are the criteria for choosing them??

The separate trailer

Even if they are available as one-seaters, bicycle trailers are particularly well suited for the transporting several children. They sit next to each other with their seatbelts fastened and are able to communicate with each other under the lockable dome. Children can also watch the ride through the side and front windows. If it should be a longer trip, the offspring is well protected against wind and weather on the one hand and can sleep in peace on the other hand due to the separated room. Many models also have a third wheel and a push handle at the rear, which means that the trailer can be converted into a cross-country pushchair in no time at all, and sporty parents can take it out jogging.

Soccer-court divides the village

Soccer-court divides the village

No one had expected this: for the first time at an SPD local meeting, the chairman of the SPD city council faction, ingo lehmann, buried the oberburgermeister last night. Henry schramm (CSU) must have realized that the topic of the meeting had explosive power: should a soccer court be built at the new playground in forstlahm or not??

From the parking lot of the inn schramm a train of 70 forstlahmer and visitors pilgrimaged unanimously to the hollow between the old village and the new building area, which spreads northwestwards. But at the place where the new playground is to be built, it was over with the unanimity. There was controversial discussion, sometimes emotional. It turns out that the small soccer field is causing a lot of trouble and is dividing the village: here the old residents, who are against the soccer court – there the new residents, who think the soccer court is great.

Fear: alarm until evening

The reservations of the forstlahmer from the old village formulated among others peter stocker. He assured: "we are not hostile to children." But it is to be feared that the soccer-court has a magnetic effect and also attracts children from far away. Then it was over with the peace and you have larm until evening.

New honorary members at sc marktbreit

New honorary members at sc marktbreit

"On the proposal and decision of the board of directors, I have the honor today to appoint two sportsmen as honorary members, the highest award that the association bestows. Both joined the club at the beginning of the seventies and are already bearers of the "golden club pin", said honorary councilor gunther knochel.

Active as coaches for many years
Frank amberger moved from FC ochsenfurt to marktbreit 38 years ago and settled in marktbreit. Knochel praised amberger's sporting and pedagogical skills: "whether as coach of the 1. Team, as a youth coach or co-founder of the marktbreit-martinsheim playing association – his advice was always appreciated." He was on the board for ten years, initially as 3. And then until this year 2. Chairman.

The women's team is well cared for

Youth team "but above all he coached and looked after the SCM women's team together with his wife for 20 years". His greatest successes were promotion to the bavarian league, winning the lower franconian cup and reaching the DFB main round. Hanselmann was often in the spotlight, not only in sports but also socially, because he also liked to play music for the SCM at various events.
Honorary chairman gerhard weigand praised the eleven's class preservation in the district league, even in the second year after the promotion. He also praised the new coach tobias jager and the "sporting cornerstone toni sporer"." A greeting was delivered by pastor thomas volk, who outed himself as an SCM fan.
