Abuse: children's railroad employee must go to jail

The station manager had sexually abused two children aged 12 and 14 ten times. The defendant exploited his superior position towards the victims, the judges ruled. Three employees of the family attraction in the wuhlheide amusement park have so far been given custodial sentences.

The dismissed station manager and his friend, who was not employed at the children’s railroad, apologized. "I’m sorry for the damage i did to the young," affirmed the 31-year-old german railroad train conductor. The confessions spared the young men embarrassing testimony, judge uwe notzel considered mitigating the punishment. Through his lawyer, the then 12-year-old said, "I will be haunted by these deeds for the rest of my life.

The boy felt obligated to the children’s railroad, he wanted to move up and leave a good impression, said sylvia frommhold, the representative for the nebenklage.

Adac and adfc criticize poor cycle paths

adac and adfc criticize poor cycle paths

In rare unity, car and bicycle lobbyists criticize the cycle paths in german cities.

Around one in three cycle paths (36 percent) does not even meet the minimum width requirements, according to the german automobile club (ADAC), which based its findings on a recent random sample. "Only one in five bicycle lanes reached or exceeded the standard widths."

The auto club had tested 120 routes in the five state capitals with the highest and the five state capitals with the lowest proportion of traffic accounted for by bicycles to see whether the existing cycle paths could cope with the ever-increasing volume of traffic.

One of the dog owners made it clear that this was not a performance show, but a test of the breed. Purely the appearance of the long, short and rough-haired dachshunds is checked according to precise, internationally prescribed guidelines. Anja busch, a performance judge from ahorn near coburg, took on this task this weekend.

Each of the 20 or so dachshunds presented was examined, measured, weighed and the gait assessed. The fur and teeth were examined. Those who did not like to be looked in the mouth had bad cards, because the evaluation of each presented dog took place after a form evaluation: from the age of nine months the animals can be presented, whereby a pedigree and the membership in the association are not necessarily necessary.
