Obertrubach defies the rain at perpetual adoration

When the participants left the church, unpleasant rain began to fall, but after returning to the church it stopped again. The people of obertrubach and their helpers had once again carefully made all the preparations to celebrate the centuries-old tradition in a fitting and dignified manner.

The media interest was unimaginable. Various tv stations reported in advance and also on the day itself. For the last hour of prayer, the guests of honor, accompanied by the flags of the community, marched from the town hall through the village to the parish church of st. Peter. Laurentius. Father werner wolf buried many honorary guests from the clergy, good friends such as domkapitular josef zerndl or monsignor andreas straub, as well as the alumni of the wurzburg seminary, where the future priests of the archdiocese of bamberg will be trained. They were joined by a guest priest from nigeria. So one was international.

Ocumenical together

From the political side, mdb silke launert (CSU) took part, as did mdl michael hofmann (CSU) and thorsten glauber (). Pastor wolf was particularly pleased that, in addition to district administrator hermann ulm (CSU), all the mayors of the surrounding area once again took part. It met his repeatedly expressed and demanded desire to live together ecumenically.


A lot of blood and a lot of spab

A lot of blood and a lot of spab

The emergency presentation group of the youth red cross erlangen-hochstadt helps with smaller case simulations of the sanitary readiness of the bavarian red cross and final presentations of the rescue service training of the local association erlangen-hochstadt of the bavarian red cross. In addition, the "young actors" are firefighters, firefighters, emergency counselors and the various aid organizations are involved in firefighting operations and car accident re-enactments as well as supra-regional disaster control operations.
The emergency presentation is a core component of the youth red cross. It is made up of voluntarily committed youths and young adults. During the rehearsals, they provide the sick and injured as well as the make-up artists and attendants, who take care of the safety of the actors.

It simply bleeds everywhere

Detailed scenarios and elaborate make-up of wounds with latex, wax, bubble gel and various types of fake blood make the injuries appear real and allow the emergency services to practice close to reality. "This is essential for training in medical masks, rescue techniques and the deepening of operational tactics in simulated major emergencies," assures karl-heinz pritzl, says anne harder from the youth red cross troop. In addition, the performers demonstrate their skills to the general public in the form of demonstrations – such as the one recently held on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the herzogenaurach volunteer fire department.

Training is important

The emergency response group trains monthly and practices realistic behavior in exceptional situations – from unconscious patients to patients screaming in pain, from turntable ladder rescues to cutting out of cars, it’s all there. Anne harder tells: "we train our make-up skills together and get to know the different illnesses and injuries. Through the youth red cross there is also the possibility of in-depth training in sanitation and entry into the rescue service."
It is a special concern of the group to challenge and educate the members individually, so that everyone has fun and "we make the helpers sweat". Ah, mb


After the accident: the call for the lerchenhof route is getting louder again in theisenort

Brakes squeak. Everyone holds their breath in suspense. Is it crashing or isn’t it crashing at the junction of state road 2200 with theisenort?? A driver was not paying attention and simply overlooked the blinker of the car in front of him. "This is normal" thomas friedlein from the TSF sports club shrugs his shoulders in perplexity. On this day, everything went well, but many people in theisenort are still in shock.

When, a few days ago, a semitrailer almost shaved off the cashier’s house and the annex to the sports home and surrounded the memorial stone, a last drop plopped into the barrel, causing it to overflow. Now it should finally be an end to the tug-of-war over the lerchenhof street. The spokesman for the citizens’ initiative, wolfgang franz, is slightly sarcastic: "we will soon be celebrating our 20th anniversary. Planning anniversary. Maybe we can do it before."

Some things probably love to plan themselves to death, the supporters of the route are convinced. The situation in theisenort is not an isolated case.


Market has a long tradition

Sigismund von dobschutz the "green market" has a long tradition in bad kissingen. In the past, the merchants offered their wares twice a week, or more recently only once a week, on the square in eisenstadt. Two years ago, alexander muller from priesendorf (bamberg district) and his team had to move to the town hall square in front of the jakobus church. There he will stay in the future.

"The market has been around for decades", remembers head of the public order department rainer warzecha. In any case, the market already existed in 1994 when it started its service in the town hall. Officially it is not a "green market" at all, warzecha points out, but only one of several weekly markets in bad kissingen. Because in addition to fruit and vegetables, other traders also offer occasional cheese, fish and more. Be that as it may: for old-established kissing residents, it is the "green market", only the suppliers have changed from time to time over the decades.

The last time the priesendorf dealer alexander muller had his wooden tables from spring 2013 every thursday morning from 5 a.M. On.30 o’clock at the eisenstadter platz, after his longtime predecessor from sennfeld (district schweinfurt) had to give up for reasons of age. Two years ago, however, the groundbreaking ceremony for the extension of the district administration office in muhlgasse made it necessary to move to the town hall square. Muller is grateful today for this change of location and already has the official permission to continue to stand in front of the jakobuskirche despite the completion of the landratsamt building: "we make 20 to 30 percent more turnover here." Understandable, since the passers-by from the central parking garage are now joined by those from the tattersall parking lot via the spitalgasse as walk-in customers.
