Ihk criticism of new school

"As much as we buried the decision to build a new technical school in coburg with the above-mentioned focal points, we regret all the more that regional stakeholders were not involved earlier in the decision-making process.", IHK president friedrich herdan notes in a press release. "We had hoped for an earlier consultation on the selection of training courses in particular."

The coburg area is traditionally a strong economic region with a high level of industrial activity. With 184 industrial employees per 1,000 inhabitants, the city of coburg ranks 8th in bavaria. The main focus in the manufacturing sector is on the automotive supply industry, mechanical engineering and electrical engineering, said herdan. Coburg is also a strong financial and insurance location. Economic development potential lies not only in traditional industries but also in design, sensor technology and electromobility.

And herdan continues: "the supply of the regional economy with well-trained specialists will determine the prosperity of our economic region more than ever, not least against the backdrop of demographic change. Medium-sized companies need qualified specialists, not only in research and development, but especially in production. Qualified technicians are urgently needed here. According to the forecasts of the chamber of industry and commerce’s skilled workers monitor, there will be a shortage of around 2,600 skilled workers with technical training in the city and district of coburg in 2021. The bulk of the demand for skilled workers will develop in the local industrial companies, in the fields of automotive technology and mechanical engineering. In order to maintain and further challenge our economic strengths and to further develop the above-mentioned future industries, we need suitable strategies and measures to secure skilled workers. "

At home in the middle of the town of rodental

At home in the middle of the town of rodental

It was the five-year-old lotte who received the symbolic key for the new pastor fritzanke daycare center on friday. Architect roland schultheib presented her with the small work of art for the inauguration. Lotte and all the other children have long since settled in as the adults celebrate the completion of the facility. The fact that she, and not the head of the kindergarten, heidi ludwig, received the key should underline for whom planners and workers have been working hard in the past months: the children.
Mayor marco steiner () was keen to emphasize that only the building is new, not the kindergarten. It has been around for 110 years. At the time, it was built close to the factory as a foundation of the annawerk. Deacon gunther neidhardt found out that in kaiser’s time some things were already quite similar to what they are today. Like steiner, he had leafed through old records. The first director, fraulein bockelberg, noted in 1908 that embroidery, knitting, building and folding would be taught in the kindergarten, and as often as possible in the garden. In 1918, however, the kindergarten management was pleased that a donation made it possible to "purchase helmets and rifles for all the boys."

Changing wearers

The kindergarten was initially run as a foundation. In 1942 it was taken over by the national socialist volkswohlfahrt, after the war it went to the bavarian state office for property administration and became property of the state of bavaria. A little later, pastor fritz anke founded a kindergarten association, which was soon able to take over the kindergarten. Today, the evangelical church community is the facility’s sponsor. Construction load carrier is the city of rodental.
The city council therefore had to decide what to do with the old fritz-anke kindergarten. "A new building on the old site would not have been possible", marco steiner stated. Because there was no alternative for the company to operate during the construction work. But the nursery was needed. Not only that, but it had to grow from two to three groups plus a nursery. So a new site was searched, which was found near the middle school. A place that reminds pastor jorg mahler of jesus’ quote "let the children come to me" recalled. Because: "we do not deport the children, they are in the middle of the city", he emphasized at the inauguration, which he performed together with his catholic colleague peter fischer.

Clear concept

The concept that architect roland schultheib followed in his planning could be seen by the guests during a tour of the facility. "I wanted bright rooms from which you can always see the green", he explained. This was made possible by a roofed area in front of the windows. Even when the sun is shining, there is no need to cover the windows," he says. In addition, there is always an area in the open air that offers shade or rain protection so that the children can go outside at any time. The kindergarten and the day nursery are separated inside – outside there is space for meeting again. Before he could implement his plans, however, the financing had to be clarified. There was an initial discussion about this with the government of upper franconia in november 2016, as marco steiner reports. "It was only supposed to be an interview, but it was so constructive that there was never any need for a further discussion", he describes the good cooperation with the government.
The fact that the 1.44 million euros in funding did not come from the government of upper franconia, but from the state of bavaria, was pointed out by the two members of the state parliament, jurgen W. Heike (CSU) and susann biedefeld (SPD) stated in unison. With considerable construction costs of around 1.75 million euros, the city’s share was limited to just over 300,000 euros. This also did not change significantly during the construction period.
The former building of the kindergarten has meanwhile gone back to the evangelical church community, as rainer mattern confirmed on behalf of the deanery.
District administrator michael busch (SPD) emphasized that the district of coburg is top in bavaria in the employment rate of women. This is possible not least because the district is also top in child care.
The problems of the adults were of little interest to the children. They are thrilled with the well-equipped rooms and are eagerly awaiting the installation of the playground equipment.

Good harvest of the musical flower bed

Good harvest of the musical flower bed

Herzogenaurach – the first school recital in the new series was successfully held in the rehearsal hall of the SJK recently.
Instrumentalists of all ages and abilities showcased their talents and skills, demonstrating not only their own skills but also the broad range of the association's activities.
In order to take the excitement away from the young musicians, some of whom have only been playing for a year, the small concert took place in a relaxed atmosphere. Musical director and instrumental teacher norbert engelmann once joked with his tuba student as if they were in class, before they dared to perform a duet. So the beginners were gently introduced to their performance and proved their skills on instruments like euphonium, saxophone, clarinet, tuba and flute.
Experienced performers, on the other hand, were the schulers, members of the first and second orchestras. They appeared in different formations. From a single clarinet to a piano-accompanied flute to a polyphonic brass ensemble, they showed their variety – once across the musical gemusebeet. Thus the evening became a full success by the entertaining concert and the city youth band looks forward to the further planned school recitals.
The next prelude already takes place on 10. February at 18.30 o'clock in the clubhouse of the SJK (eichelmuhlgasse 24 ) takes place. It can be assumed that the field of mushrooms has not yet been harvested empty, given the bandwidth of the SJK.

Everything smart: kulmbach schoolchildren present their visions for the future

What could kulmbach look like in 2040?? This was the question posed by young people from five kulmbach schools in a special project. The caspar-vischer-gymnasium, the carl-von-linde-realschule, the hans-edelmann-schule, the max-hundt-schule and the adalbert-raps-schule were involved.

Motto: "smart city – thinking about the future!"

The students presented the results at a town hall meeting on thursday morning. "Smart city – thinking about the future!" Was the topic, where visions were definitely desired.

"Normally, we specify individual topics, but the students in kulmbach wanted to choose their own topics", said project manager heike pfeffer. The young people worked on the topics themselves in workshops under the guidance of an expert and were encouraged to "think visionary and further".

Young musicians show what they can do

At the end of the school year, the youngest musicians in ebensfeld have their first rough performance in front of an audience at the annual school and youth concert of the ebensfeld music association.

Kruger also referred to the broad musical youth work of the music association, which extends from the age of two to the more mature age of the adult blaser class. He expressed his special thanks not only to the teachers, but also to the ebensfeld market and the pater lunkenbein school in ebensfeld for their excellent cooperation.

The first part was played by the smallest musicians from the early musical education.

Kleinhenz: “wildspots have a good future”

Kleinhenz: 'wildspots have a good future'

Gerd kleinhenz once learned to be a stonemason. But he rarely works with his hands anymore. If, then in the garden. Some time ago he bought a piece of land with fruit trees behind his house in oberbach. "What I realized: how valuable a free weekend is. I wasn’t aware of that six years ago", says the mayor of wildflecken. Nevertheless, he was happy to stay in office. Since there is no opposing candidate, this will in all likelihood also work out.

Successes and setbacks – kleinhenz has had both since he became head of the town hall in wildflecken. "What hurt me most was the departure of the doctor", he looks back. Despite intensive efforts, it has not yet been possible to find a successor for the family practice in oberbach. Kleinhenz also mentions the enormous delay in the pump track for the youth at the sinn – pollutants had appeared in the soil on the land. "I thought that some things could be implemented more quickly", he confesses.

But there are also other moments. "The opening of the school was a very big deal for me. The opening of the rhonexpress rail-bike path was also a major event for me", says the mayor. Progress is also being made at the kreuzberg business park: of a total of 160 hectares, 96 hectares are occupied. Currently, the community is negotiating with three interested parties who want to invest in a total of 34 hectares. There are about 30 hectares that are still completely vacant. "The commercial area could be sold out in two to three years – if everything goes well", says kleinhenz.

The whir of the needle and hard rock

The whir of the needle and hard rock

V2. This raises questions. But behind the short engine is not a rocket model, rather an engine with two cylinders. This is motorcyclist jargon, and it is cultivated by the V2 friends from coburg. Just like a tattoo meeting that has been taking place in the city hall for several years now. Since 2020 and under their orientation heibt tattoo& custombike. A place enriched with trends, encounters and stories.

Customized motorcycles and individually decorated

A buzz is in the air. That, what the tattoo needles accomplish here, loads itself acoustically still with hardrock up. At least hard rock, often hard. People lie on top of each other, have their legs, shoulders, arms decorated. And in the back quarter of the stadthalle, dealers have parked motorcycles, called custombikes. That fits, says someone here from the organizers, because custom bikes are individual motorcycles and tattooed individually decorated. 27 booths are set up in the hall, 15 of them from tattoo studios all over germany. 15 studios also have more than one employee and klaus albrecht, a biker involved in the organization, guesses a total of 35 tattoo artists here. There are day passes and children up to twelve are admitted free of charge.

Questions on the thigh

One of the tattoo artists has a young woman in the works right now. On her thigh questions about questions: where have i been?? What did I do? How did it start? When did it start? What have I done? Luise heibt the 18-year-old from sonneberg and that with the questions is with her so a thing for itself. The young woman has poor memory and does not dare to go to the doctor. He could make an unpleasant diagnosis, maybe even something with a tumor. But the young woman from the hotel industry would rather not hear it. Even the simplest drink recipes have been written down for her, she says. Whole days and whole nights they forget, they just get lost in the nowhere. She also forgets when she is praised. Questions upon questions and the needle perpetuates them all to you.

Lanzendorf theater: advance booking has begun

Lanzendorf theater: advance booking has begun

Rough events cast their shadows ahead: on 14. In april, the theater group of the lanzendorf horticultural society celebrates the premiere of its new comedy "the confounded class reunion" in the clubhouse of the small animal breeders in himmelkron.
Rehearsals began shortly after the turn of the year, and now the "hard phase" begins for director linda fischer and the actors. It is gratifying to note that jana horeth, a "greenhorn," was again successfully cast in this year's production for the amateur theater.

"It's really fun"

Wolfgang muller, who usually plays the leading role, approached the 17-year-old, who is currently training to become an industrial clerk. "I was just at his farm when he asked me if I would like to play with theater. I've been thinking about it for a long time, because it's not easy to combine school, work and theater, especially since I'm also getting my driver's license. At some point i decided to join in."

A return visitor

Jana horeth plays the daughter of an american emigrant. She has never had anything to do with theater before: "I haven't had any experience with it yet, but it's really fun, and at the premiere there will certainly be a certain nervousness as well."
Bert hoppert, who was last on stage in 1999 in the hall of the "zum roten ochsen" inn, is back on board in lanzendorf. Hoppert will slip into the role of the emigrant.

An old tradition revives

An old tradition revives

"In the past, it was a matter of course to sing together at the pub, in addition to conversation and card games, especially the songs that everyone had learned at school, in the youth group or in the family, recalled otmar lutz, who led the evening. "It simply demanded the happy, sociable together." Besides, there had once been only a few other recreational opportunities. And: "the world was still small. Who came far from home?" Most of the guests had experienced this themselves. So they took the step into this "different, certainly not in every respect good, old time" with pleasure.

The 130 visitors sang such wise songs as "das wandern ist des mullers lust", "in the most beautiful meadows", "true friendship, "at the fountain in front of the gate, "we love the storms", "farewell to god’s beautiful world" or "no spare land in this time" with. Included were according to the chosen motto franken- and rhonlied, the "murschter prozession" as well as instrumental pieces like a rhonian gallop or the haferstrompolka.
Lutz made a lot of fun with some dialect episodes like the frale, who likes to go to confession, and the fritzle, who brings freshly slaughtered meat to the pastor. The "alder waltz" described a special need from oerlenbach as a declaration of love, with which every bride and groom was once addressed.

The wirtshaussingen should – as lutz explained – be an acoustic test for the kulturscheune. The community – he suggested – should reward the testers for their service with free drinks. Whether the hung flags had improved the sound, he loves openly. But clearly his congratulations to the birthday child, the FC eltingshausen: "we play for you today for free!"
