The charred body had been recovered from the trumps of the wooden building near the village of ojen, north of marbella. An autopsy should establish the identity of the victim beyond doubt. Initially it had been said that the dead man was a 78-year-old briton.

The police had ordered the evacuation of the entire village of ojen due to the fire. The german had apparently returned early to his house, where he had been living with his dogs, according to the newspaper sur.

According to fire department estimates, more than 5,000 hectares of forest and scrubland burned down around the towns of mijas, coin, ojen and marbella. Five people were injured, including a mother with two children who had been flooded into a cave.

Teichmuhlen tradition lives on

30 years of the muhlenverein are 30 years of work, 30 years of commitment by the many volunteers who are involved with body and soul in front of and behind the scenes.
When on 6. April 1987 the club was founded, there were twelve foundation members. The then mayor of steinwiesen, reinhold renk, supported the idea, as did karl hundt as the then district curator of local history and the then district administrator, heinz kohler. First chairman became martin beierschoder.
From the beginning michael kestel was a pillar of the association. First as second chairman and from 2003 until today as first chairman. Since 1987, the association has regularly organized guided tours for visitors on sundays from 2 to 5 p.M. From may to october. For groups of five or more people, tours are also offered during the week by arrangement with the tourist office.

500.Anniversary of the muhle celebrated

Since 2003 the mill association also took over the cutting operation in the pond muhle. This stood at the time already two years still, because the owner had not found a tenant. Since then, the members bernhard schlee and bernhard lang cut the muhlholz once or twice a week. A major event in the 30-year history of the association was the 500th anniversary of the founding of the company. The jubilee of the pond muhle, which was celebrated in 2007 and became known beyond the borders of the country.

Last remaining cutting mill

The pond muhle steinwiesen is the last remaining cutting muhle still in operation today and at the same time a non-governmental museum and thus open to the public. During the tours you can also see the four meter high and one meter wide mill wheel. It has a flow of 1000 liters per second, reaching its maximum power of almost 7 hp. After that, the water continues to flow unspent.
Today we are struggling for renewable energy, more than nine centuries ago our ancestors have already used this in the frankenwaldmuhlen. Very interesting is also the royal bavarian full iron gate, which is demonstrably over 140 years old and still runs perfectly quiet and without vibrations. A unique selling point of the teichmuhle is the replica of the board float. You can also visit the needle weir, the oak pole, a display board, a wave tree, comb wheels and a basket wheel. Of course you can also see the mill shed and the poor dwelling of the miller’s family. Under the shed there is also a drive room with a transmission and a storage room.

Publishers versus google: criticism of copyright reform

The print media want to share in the profits of commercial search engines. This is what the coalition of union and FDP decided on sunday. With the reform of copyright law, the government wants to fulfill a long-standing demand of german newspaper and magazine publishers.

"Commercial providers on the net, such as search engine operators and news aggregators, should in future pay publishers a fee for the distribution of press products (such as newspaper articles) on the internet," the coalition’s resolution paper states. Private individuals will not be affected by the planned regulation because private use of press products on the net will remain free of charge. Even for companies, paper printouts and reading news on the screen remain free of charge.

The federal association of german newspaper publishers (BDZV) and the association of german magazine publishers (VDZ) see the new copyright law as a prerequisite for effectively protecting "the joint efforts of journalists and publishers" in the digital age. The levy is to be collected by a collecting society and distributed to the media.


Singkreis explores the saarland-lorraine-luxembourg triangle

Singkreis explores the saarland-lorraine-luxembourg triangle

After exploring the north with the island of rugen on last year’s choir trip, the hebdorfer singkreis set its sights on the western triangle of saarland-lorraine-luxembourg on this year’s trip.

Trip organizer and chairwoman emilie meier had put together an extensive program for the nearly 85 participants, including 52 choristers. The focus was – as always – on a self-imposed choral-musical assignment. Thus the singkreis framed a sunday service in the magnificent baroque ludwigskirche saarbrucken under the direction of julian bobe. Among other things, a "jubilate" was heard by jean baptist lully, the court composer of the french sun king ludwig XIV., which, by the way, had significantly shaped the image of the so-called secret capital of the saarland, saarlouis, where the choir was accommodated for four days.

Two spiritual arrangements by the former choir director manfred meier were also performed for the first time. The service finally ended with an effective "hallelujah" accompanied by the organ-chorus from trade oratorio "messiah, which will be performed by the singkreis in hebdorf and erlangen this december.
