Fire in steinach: rescue workers were able to prevent 'worse' from happening

On monday evening, a fire broke out in the oldest part of the "hein gmbh&" building co. KG" to a fire. According to the initial findings of the criminal police fire investigators, a technical defect in a false floor of the building was probably the cause of the fire. According to treasures, the damage caused amounts to around 500.000 euros.

It was a long night for the commander of the hof an der steinach volunteer fire department, michael renner. Only in the early morning hours of tuesday he left his place of action. Fortunately, no people were injured in the fire, but there was a lot of damage to the inventory, he says.

Fire source difficult to reach

The fire department had difficulty reaching the source of the fire, is how renner describes the operation at the building materials trade’s office building. In this context he speaks of fire protection panels on the ceiling and of a tin roof on which a photovoltaic system is mounted. The source of the fire was therefore difficult to reach. His colleagues had to remove the boards from below in order to be able to fight the fire. Unfortunately, it was not possible to prevent the fire from spreading to the adjacent warehouse, where stacks of paper and insulating materials were stored.

So that the situation does not tip over

So that the situation does not tip over

Saturday morning at the truck parking lot of the knauf company. There is a lot of activity. But on this day it is not trucks that are parked and maneuvered. Many motorcyclists are rather seen there. Under the motto" fit for spring – for a safe start to the 2012 season" a free driving safety training for two-wheelers will take place at the parking lot.
Invited by the deutsche verkehrswacht, the driving instructors association, dekra and the kitzingen police inspectorate. With the support of driving instructors from kitzingen, they offer skills training such as correct cornering, full braking from a speed of 50 kilometers per hour, circling, slalom, turning, swerving without braking and swerving with prior braking.

18 motorcyclists died

At the beginning of the safety training norbert muller from the kitzingen police thanked all the motorcyclists who came to iphofen to take part in this very important training session.A look at the accident statistics shows how important it is to react correctly. The number of motorcycle accidents rose by 16.9 percent to 644 in 2011. Of the 81 road users who lost their lives in lower franconia last year, 18 were motorcyclists. The number of injured motorcyclists also increased – by 22 percent from 482 to 588.
Among the first motorcyclists to roll onto the parking lot that saturday were doris and rainer weibkopf from hassfurt. The family bought a machine only six and four years ago, respectively. Both are passionate BMW drivers. "I only got my driver's license four years ago", says doris weibkopf. She especially loves riding in a group. "Last year I already dared to go on rough rides. We were traveling in the alps and on alpine passes." She has not yet completed a safety training course. "But i know from experience how important such training is after the long winter break." Fortunately, both have not yet had any serious accidents. To keep it that way and to get an even better feeling for the machines, they wanted to complete all the stations offered that day.
Thomas then from sommerach has more experience with motorcycling. "I have been riding a motorcycle for 23 years now. I'm currently riding a suzuki DR 650", he tells visibly proud. "For me, riding a motorcycle means a trace of freedom", he says, you spurt the technique and you are much more challenged while driving than in a car. "It's important to be in control of your machine, that's why I'm here today – to get fit again for this year's season." The spring training is enormously important for him, thomas then emphasizes. "Over the winter, you forget one or two things that should simply be in there." There is one sentence that an old motorcyclist once said to him that he has not forgotten: you learn how to ride a motorcycle anew every spring. "I behave like a beginner on the first few rides and slowly build up to the season again. You forget so much so quickly during the winter break. How to approach a curve correctly, weight shifting, braking behavior and gaze guidance." Every season, then rides his motorcycle about 10,000 kilometers – and has so far also been spared serious accidents.

Margarine dispute: unilever wins against foodwatch

Margarine dispute: unilever wins against foodwatch

The press chamber of the hamburg regional court dismissed a complaint by foodwatch on friday. The consumer organization had accused unilever of concealing the side effects of margarine enriched with plant sterols.

"However, the court did not decide whether the margarine in question had harmful side effects or not," emphasized district court spokesman conrad muller-horn. The proceedings, which had been ongoing for months, were only about whether a statement by the giebener mediziner prof. Hans-ulrich klor in a communication from unilever is admissible. Klor is quoted as saying that from a scientific point of view there is no evidence that the consumption of plant sterol-enriched products is associated with side effects.

The court now considered this statement to be an opinion – and not a statement of fact. "Unilever can thus in effect invoke freedom of opinion," muller-horn explained.

This included the extension of the bus line 206 from zeckern to adelsdorf and an increase in the number of rides. The district of erlangen-hochstadt, in cooperation with the district of forchheim, had already commissioned a potential analysis in 2017.

The SPD-councillors hope that the chance for a quick improvement has not been lost due to the long time that has already passed. Therefore, they request that the municipal council be informed about the current status. Any obstacles to improving line haulage are also to be identified and countermeasures established.

Place for sports and social station

In a second motion, lamm and bubel call for the current revision of the municipality's land use plan to include land for public use. An organically growing community needs in the future not only residential areas, but also areas for public needs, as they are already listed in the local development concept of the community. Lamm and bubel are thinking of flat areas for facilities such as a youth center, for social services, for a retirement home and senior living, for community spaces for various club-independent activities, for sports facilities, especially to expand the existing club facilities, but also for a public sports field, a sports hall, a skating rink, or a sports field for the elderly. For an ice skating rink, for inline skating and jogging tracks, for the extension or the new ski slope. Relocation of the building yard and expansion of the local supply system.

Dominik schwabe: “didn’t think we’d get off to such a good start”

Dominik schwabe: 'didn't think we'd get off to such a good start'

Two teams from kronach are doing really well in district 2. TSF theisenort wants to continue its winning streak against siedlung lichtenfels. And SV fischbach awaits ATSV gehulz, who celebrated their first point win last weekend. Dominik schwabe, the coach of fischbacher, talks to the FT about the matchday when he won’t be on the pitch. During the match in altenkunstadt, the 36-year-old suffered a torn ligament in his left knee in a duel and will therefore be absent as a player for a long time. Mr. Schwabe, you have made an almost perfect start to the season with your new team. Did you expect this and do you still see a need for improvement in some areas?? Dominik schwabe: yes, we almost had that one. Unfortunately, we lost the top match at FC altenkuntstadt/woffendorf 0:3. We were just the worse team that day. We came absolutely not in the game and that is with a top team like altenkuntstadt simply not in it. Of course our performance was poor that day, but I must also say that we were very depleted. We simply cannot replace five top performers like michael jakob, benni seifert, chris schedel, johannes hermann and thomas hanna are for us. But this is not an excuse for the poor performance, because all teams are struggling with games during the week. But on the whole, I am very satisfied with the performance and results achieved.

Of course there are always things to improve, so I’m glad that these english weeks are over and we can train intensively twice a week again. Our defense is very good.. We just need to improve our offensive play and, above all, better control the games in which we take the lead. And no, I didn’t think we’d get off to such a good start. One is new in the association, has its philosophy of fubball and that must first find together. I am happy that things are going so well and I am proud to be a part of this association.

How do you rate your next opponent, ATSV gehulz?? If you underestimate ATSV gehulz, it will be a damn tough game. They have now scored their first point and will have tasted blood in order to score further points. Gehulz has not much to lose in the current situation and will do everything to take points from fischbach. I’m going to get my team right to keep the weibe vest at home.
