Theinfeld church in the change of times

Theinfeld church in the change of times

The church of theinfeld was said to be one of the oldest church buildings. Currently it is being renovated. This is a good opportunity to remember the turbulent time of the building.

The church was originally only a chapel without a tower and was probably built in the 13th century. Or 14. The court had been erected in the nineteenth century. In 1599 a tower was added to the church. The year of construction 1599 is engraved in the keystone of the tower. In 1747 the nave was moved to the west and the entrance was relocated. In 1753 the monastery donated an altar to maria bildhausen, which is still in the church today. In 1839 another reconstruction took place and in addition an organ was installed.

57 years ago (1962) the church steeple (real steeple) was re-roofed. Since church attendance in theinfeld was very good, at least at that time, the pastor in charge at the time, oskar pfluger (1964 to 1982), decided in 1970 to enlarge the church by building a new nave. In order to receive grants from the bishop’s ordinariate, the political community renounced its property and transferred the church to the catholic church foundation. The new church nave was built in a very short time.

Risk of swine fever outbreak in germany high

risk of swine fever outbreak in germany high

The risk of african swine fever (ASF) entering germany remains high, with new cases in poland and the czech republic. A spokeswoman for the friedrich loeffler institute (FLI) said that humans pose a particular danger.

Thus, the disease, which is advancing from eastern europe towards the west, could very quickly be introduced into germany through contaminated food leftovers disposed of at rest stops.

The disease was introduced into the EU via georgia and russia, and has now been detected in six member states. In poland, swine fever has reached as far west as the capital warsaw. According to the FLI, between the end of november and the beginning of january, 279 new cases of the disease occurred in wild boar in poland. The situation there was assessed by the researchers as alarming.

Vw commercial vehicles stronger than ever

The start of a production line for the amarok pickup at the hanover main plant at the end of june will further improve the company’s overall competitive position, chief executive officer wolfgang schreiber said on wednesday.

"People are holding back," said harald schomburg, member of the board of management for sales, referring to the growing uncertainty caused by the euro debt crisis. In light commercial vehicle sales, too, the company now has "a lot of ground to cover," especially in southern and western europe. Markets such as germany, austria, switzerland and eastern europe were still doing well: "we expect to reach a similar level in europe as in 2011 – but with a different composition."

The kerwasmadla and kerwasbum reacted cleverly at the barnfelser kerwa. Since the kerwas tree was shuttered by unknown persons the year before, this should not happen this year.
"Although this", as caro and carina from the village youth affirm "we don’t even need them and they haven’t really bothered us at all". That’s why the "young-bares" switch their 20-meter-high spruce directly after erecting it themselves, in order to forestall potential repeat staters. Because the girls and boys also put up a sign with the words "atsch" the unknown people who were addressed felt challenged, so they took to their words at night and laid down the decorated trophy: "our people kept watch until six in the morning, but at seven he was suddenly lying there", smile the two kerwasmadla, who, together with the old kerwas boys who had stepped in without further ado and did not want to be accused of this sacrilege, immediately set off for the forest to get a ten-meter taller spruce to replace it. But apparently they heaved a little too hard and unsteadily, because just as the "maia" in the straight stand, the tip broke off crashingly. But even this does not upset carina and caro, because they think: "with or without spitz’ and tree, the barnfelser kerwa is a dream."

New place to play

New place to play

Although the children of eltingshausen have been playing on their new playground in bayernstrabe since last fall, they have been able to enjoy the new equipment. But it was not until sunday that it was officially inaugurated with a family service in the presence of mayor franz kuhn, local spokesman andreas kukuk and some local residents. More than 11,000 euros had been invested by the association and the community of oerlenbach in the modernization of the playground.

The idea of replacing outdated play equipment was initiated by parents from the toddlers’ group, who were soon joined by other parents. They turned to local spokesman andreas kukuk for help, who, together with the association, collected donations from local companies and private sponsors. Exactly 4600 euro came together at that time. Now it was up to the municipal administration. "There is an agreement that the municipality always contributes the same amount in such cases", explained mayor franz kuhn. "Playground equipment is replaced with new ones from time to time in the entire municipality."

Despite tight budgets, the administration and the town council were once again true to their word. "If the association community has money, then also the municipality has the money", smiled the mayor.
