dispute over care allowance - fdp prepares proposal

The proposal is to form the basis of a tripartite discussion between party leaders angela merkel (CDU), horst seehofer (CSU) and philipp rosler (FDP). However, a date has not yet been set.

There will be no "horse-trading" in this, the FDP headquarters were assured. "An exchange of concessions has not been considered."According to the newspaper "die welt" (wednesday), CDU/CSU faction leader volker kauder, on the other hand, made fun of the FDP’s demands for a care allowance at a faction meeting on tuesday. To illustrate the scale of the liberal amendments, he said: "what the FDP is asking for is worth two porsche cayennes. But the childcare allowance is not even worth a porsche cayenne."

Farewell to “tante karin

Farewell to 'tante karin

It was highly emotional, tearful and full of melancholy, the farewell of karin haderlein. After 41 years of service in the kindergarten in mitwitz she went into well-deserved retirement. One last time, the hearts of “her” flew in her direction children, one last time she drove her daily route from pressig to mitwitz.

She’s not afraid of boredom in the future, because: “I have a big garden, and now I can really enjoy my champagne breakfast and morning coffee there. I have also signed up for a gym and am looking forward to lots of activities.” but before she could start her mammoth program, they prepared a hearty farewell party for her in the kindergarten. And that clearly showed the respect that “aunt karin” has for her daughter had earned in all those years.

“Parents put pressure on themselves and their children”

Coburg – increased demands for education and less time together with their children put pressure on mothers and fathers in their upbringing. Often they forget to let their children be children for a change. A conversation with elke scheler, who has been a kindergarten teacher at the marienschule for more than 40 years: about changing times and increased demands.

Tageblatt: ms. Scheler, were parents more relaxed in the past??
Elke scheler: yes, I think so. Simply because most mothers were not employed 40 years ago. They had more time for their children. Today, most parents are both employed, and women often have to perform a difficult balancing act between work and family life. It's really not easy to reconcile the demands on all sides.

Comment: the municipal utilities make it too easy for themselves with their offer

Comment: the municipal utilities make it too easy for themselves with their offer

It’s noble of a man to forego a car rather than insist on its comforts. Above all, if the step takes perhaps rucksicht on other traffic participants or also on the environment.

The city of bamberg’s offer of a year’s free bus travel as a reward for not having a driver’s license is also praiseworthy. It seems that our transport company takes into consideration the elderly citizens and the environment.

Church resignations analyzed relentlessly

Church resignations analyzed relentlessly

Crisis in the protestant church. This nationwide trend is also taking hold in the small rural regions: the stable conditions are shaking, interest in the church is becoming less and less. Also in the deanery of grafenberg.

This can also be expressed in numbers. While the number of baptisms still keeps the balance, the deanery pays five times as many resignations as admissions. "We have now slipped below the 12000 church member mark. That’s what makes a church community in the rough of hiltpoltstein", says dean sachs seriously to the audience. Previously, 13,000 believers in the deanery felt they belonged to the protestant church, at least on paper.
