Airfield briefly sinks harmony in county committee

The district committee’s agenda moved quickly on monday: there was a lot of agreement in the habberge district office, including the compensation of operating cost deficits of the habberg clinics, the continuation of the program "living democracy!" and to draw up the list of nominees for honorary judges for the electoral term 1. April 2020 to 31. March 2025. The county committee is considered the highest body of the county after the county council.

The only reason for discussion was the county’s report on its shareholdings in companies under private law in 2017, broken down into waste, energy, business and health. These companies include, for example, the waste management company of the habberge district, the sailershauser wald wind farm and the region mainfranken gmbh.

Tv station: eugh ruling without consequences for germany

tV station: eugh ruling without consequences for germany

However, according to ARD and ZDF, this does not mean that the TV pictures are free of charge for the broadcasters in every case. The background is a long-running legal dispute between sky austria, which spent several million euros on european league rights between 2009 and 2012, and the public broadcaster ORF. The pay-TV station has now failed in its lawsuit against the obligation to provide other broadcasters with pictures practically free of charge.

In germany, however, the situation is different according to the public broadcasters: "this ruling does not affect ARD any further," explained sports coordinator axel balkausky. In this country, the right to short reporting is directed against the organizer or the licensor.

Elephants, jaguars and sharks receive protected status

At the 13. UN conference on the convention on the conservation of migratory species of wild animals (CMS) in the indian city of gandhinagar, the conservation of important habitats was also an issue. Asian elephants, jaguars, a shark and several bird species have been added to the highest CMS protection list and member countries are to ban the killing of these animals accordingly. More species made the second-highest list, and countries are now expected to at least work more closely together to protect them.

One million animal and plant species are expected to become extinct in the coming decades, according to UN estimates. Animal rights activists say humans are a major threat to these species, for example by hunting them and destroying their habitats.

When the house smelled of apples

When the house smelled of apples

Roland schonmuller kronach- many a village in the frankenwald was once surrounded by fruit orchards. But today, only a few places are still bordered by fruit trees. The reason: the garden became building land, storms killed the gnarled trees, and the drought did its part. The fruit-giving flowers sprout their tempting fragrances less and less often in the springtime& co.

In the fall, the orchards on the green meadow strips once presented plenty of fruit, especially apples and pears. "They used to cover the needs of the farmers for the whole year!" tells an old man from the northern franconian forest. Already in the spring the many blossoming fruit trees formed a shining wreath around one or the other village. The variety of special fruit crops was sometimes named already at the time of the foundation of the place and its settlement, for example in birnbaum (pear tree) or effelter (apple tree).

After the party it was off to the cell

Drinking too much at a christmas party is a common occurrence. But what a 22-year-old industrial foreman from the northern part of the district did was out of the ordinary: after drinking four or five wheat beers and several schnapps in the course of the evening, the young man went completely berserk. He spat at the police officers who were alerted, tried to punch and kick them, and could only be moo’d and hauled off to the police cell to be smoked out. Now he got the receipt: he has to pay a fine of 3600 euros for assaulting a law enforcement officer.
The inglorious incident took place in the evening hours of the 15th of december. December last year from. At that time, the defendant accepted an invitation from his former employer to a christmas party. The social gathering was held at a guest restaurant. The reason why the man, who had no previous convictions, was willing to get drunk at the time was not discussed at the trial before the local court.
In any case, shortly after midnight, he was staggering and looking for a foothold on a lamppost when an alarmed police patrol showed up at the scene of the incident. First of all, as one of the officials on the witness stand reported at the time, they only wanted to establish the personal details of the drunken man. But he did not agree at all. He took a deep drag from his cigarette and blew the smoke directly into the uniformed man’s face.
In the meantime, the boy’s girlfriend and shortly afterwards even his parents were there and tried to talk some sense into him. After several attempts, the father gave up and said to the police officers: "we can’t deal with him, it’s best to take him with you to the punishment cell." when the rioter then tried to walk into a police station, the police intervened. They held him down and tried to put him in the police car.
They succeeded only with great effort, because the man did not call them "jerks" and "son of a whore but also spat at them and kicked them with his fists. He even bit one of the officers in his uniform. When he finally ended up in the police cell, he punched a policeman in the head through the bars and hit his glasses, which fell to the ground.
In court, defense attorney christian steinmetz explained that his client could no longer remember any details due to the exorbitant alcohol consumption at the time. He deeply regrets his failures. To the police officers present in the courtroom, he apologized in person and said: "I am sorry and promise that this will never happen again."
While prosecutor marian rubsamen pleaded for a suspended sentence of six months, the lawyer thought a fine would be sufficient. He pointed out that the industrial foreman was currently applying for various jobs and that his client’s future career path should not be blocked by an entry in the police record – which is obligatory from 91 days’ pay.
He was successful in his request, because district court judge ilona conver imposed 90 daily sentences of 40 euros each. However, the verdict is not yet legally binding, because the prosecution can appeal within a week.
