It was also announced that the americans had lost two bicycles. Mayor valentin frohlich had the not easy task of retrieving the wheels. Rumor had it that the thieves of the rader were to be shot.

However, a contemporary witness suspected that the culprits were not germans, she noted at the time: "everyone said that it was supposed to be poles, because the poles have now become insolent, they are said to have already taken the bikes off various women, the poles and frenchmen no longer need to work, u. They had to get their food from the farmers. They want to go home with the bikes." In spite of all the acts of war there were also human gestures. So the americans drove mrs.

Spd stands united behind norbert tessmer

Spd stands united behind norbert tessmer

At the federal electoral district conference, norbert tessmer, the second mayor of the city of coburg, received 97 votes and thus achieved a result of 100 percent. There were no no votes and no abstentions. Thunderous applause erupted when chairman thomas nowak announced the election results. "It blows me away, it's gigantic! I have never experienced anything like this! This result will give me strength!", tessmer was overwhelmed.

Right from the start, there was a mood of optimism among the guests in the nearly full hall. During his speech, tessmer was repeatedly interrupted by applause. He himself was modest: "it would be self-deception and too much of a mouthful to claim that we are currently in a comfortable starting position!" But there is no time for lamenting the past and lamenting how bad the world is, but the energy must be used for a good result. He wants things to be fairer and more social, and that is what he will fight for!"

Temperament and passion were evident in his voice. Tessmer spoke, among other things, of broken educational biographies that need to be eliminated, of the fight against temporary work, of poverty among the elderly. "I don't want anyone to have to seek shelter in a homeless hostel anymore, and i don't want anyone to have to rummage for food in garbage cans!"

West pavilion in coburg restored to its former glory

West pavilion in coburg restored to its former glory

The history of the west pavilion is not a glorious one – at least not in the last few decades: originally erected as a teahouse in the courtyard garden, the building later served as a milk house and finally – at its lowest point – as a toilet facility. It has not been used at all for the last few years. "It was completely run down", hans-heinrich ulmann (CSB), head of the building department, recalled at yesterday's meeting of the building senate. But now, after a year and a half of intensive restoration, the baroque twin of the east pavilion has once again become a piece of jewelry.

330.000 euros, of which 90.000 euros from various demand pots, the city of coburg has invested in the refurbishment. "A lot of money, but also a lot of manual work", emphasized head of the building department ullrich pfuhlmann at the site meeting. Around two-thirds of the work was done by the city itself, explained the head of the land office, bernhard ledermann. The paving around the building, however, was left to the professionals. Speaking of paving – here the city has demonstrated thrift: the stones come from the land of the former coal whorehouse – real recycling, that is.

Mettlach tiles in the floor
However, this did not work so smoothly with the historic mettlach tiles that were found in the floor, as sibylle fugmann from the building authority reported. The state office for the preservation of historical monuments ordered that the tiles had to remain in the floor – under the new floor structure, which is even equipped with electric underfloor heating.

A trio of candidates competes in kemmern

A trio of candidates competes in kemmern

Rudiger gerst has been head of the town council in kemmern for 18 years. And the CSU politician wanted to hang on for at least another six years. In the election on 15. In march, however, he has to face two challengers at once: anne schmitt is running for mayor of kemmern on behalf of the grunen, who are running for the first time in kemmern, and jochen gottwald is running for the electoral grouping zukunft fur kemmern (zfk), which changed its name in the 2014 municipal elections. Gerst, who was the sole candidate in his first re-election in 2008, then clearly prevailed against the zfk candidate in 2014. And now against two?

The incumbent cites the "full-length protection of the railroad expansion" as the greatest success of the past election period for himself and his campaigners at. "Here I have prevailed against many resistances for my community", he says. After "the most intensive negotiations up to berlin" the construction of the new highway bridge will also massively reduce traffic noise. In addition, in the context of the ICE plans, an "efficient economic road bridge" is needed achieved as a replacement for the railroad crossing.

Need for action exists

The challengers, on the other hand, maintain that there is still a need for action in many areas. And above all, they demand better citizen participation.
