On the tracks of luther through eisenach

The local hosts are already "lutherfinders", the guests want to be: in mid april, participants in the training course of the same name, which is run by the evangelical adult education program in thuringia and supported by the rodachtal initiative, set off from ahorn on their way to eisenach and wartburg castle. Their goal: to learn even more about the reformer at these two of his former homes.
As is well known, martin luther translated the new testament at wartburg castle in 1522. A good 20 years earlier, from 1498 to 1501, he attended latin school in eisenach and lived in the house of the patrician cotta family while there.
Their home, which is now known as "lutherhaus a museum is, formed one of the stations of the extensive city tour. However, it started at the luther monument, where guest driver ina conrad buried the group. She led her budding colleagues as well as tourism experts from the coburg and heldburg region first to the memorial and museum for johann sebastian bach. Bach set to music 30 of 37 songs of luther. "No luther, no brook, heibt es. Other stops included the georgenkirche, the lutherhaus and of course the wartburg castle. This excursion was the high point in the extensive training of the "lutherfinders" so far, all participants agreed on this when they started their way home in the early evening, somewhat exhausted but highly satisfied.

Bbz munnerstadt in the plan, hammelburg high school stopped for the time being

Bbz munnerstadt in the plan, hammelburg high school stopped for the time being

The millions flew around the ears of the district council members at the meeting of the culture committee on thursday: they set 30.14 million euros as the upper limit for the new construction of the vocational training center (BBZ) in munnerstadt. Architect prof. Gunter benkert even had the good news that the estimate after about 80 percent of awarded trades is about 600000 euro below. In contrast, the costs for the renovation of hammelburg’s frobenius grammar school more than doubled: the district had started with 15 million euros. In the meantime, according to district administrator thomas bold (CSU), it is "just under 40 million euros". Therefore, the committee now first decided on a feasibility study.

Younger buildings are to make way

Michael weinbrenner, managing director of the munich office of haindl und kollegen, presented the current planning for hammelburg. "The 1960s building brings quality, but the 1984 building is problematic", he summarized the investigation of the substance. Among other things, the load-bearing corridor walls make it difficult to implement new concepts in the younger part of the building. Therefore, it is to be demolished, the old building housed superordinate rooms such as teachers’ rooms, and an extension building with learning landscapes was built on the site of the current gymnasiums. Along kissinger strabe, the district had to rebuild gymnasiums and a dining hall as a result. "The project has become increasingly rough, especially the costs for the building services have exploded for us", weinbrenner admitted.

"The concept is very conclusive, we have no problem with that, but the costs hurt", commented county commissioner bold on the development. "We are reaching our limits", district councilor and nudlingen mayor harald hofmann (CSU) pointed out that the municipalities must also share the district’s investments. Deputy district administrator monika horcher (grune) also referred to the unresolved question of accessibility. In order to increase traffic safety, district administrator bold can well imagine a campus solution with the secondary school, but: "we do not have to decide whether the road is closed", he referred to the city of hammelburg’s competence with regard to bus traffic.

Munnerstadt: contemporary taste reigned in the church as well

Munnerstadt: contemporary taste reigned in the church as well

For more than 250 years, the famous original of mary magdalene from the munnerstadt parish church has no longer been in its original place. Today, the town’s parish church houses a copy – acknowledged as a masterpiece – by the sculptor lothar buhner from bad neustadt. The maria magdalena is a typical case of how the zeitgeist has influenced the view of the artistic work also in sacred art. The original figure has been in the possession of the bavarian national museum in munich since 1901. Efforts to bring the figure as well as the four evangelists from the dahlem museum in berlin back to the local church treasury and altar room have failed.

"I regret that we don’t have the original in the church", emphasizes city pastor P. Markus rice. The painful loss was all the more apparent to him since he shut down the "real" twitter account maria magdalena from munnerstadt in munich viewed in museum. It would have been nice if all the belt-cutting figures on the altar had been returned to their place of origin, finds the cleric.

Today, the people of munnerstadt know what treasure their ancestors once gave away. Unusual this is not. For every era had its fashions resp. Forms of expression, also in sacred art.

Too many bathers on the main river in marktsteft, too

The city of marktsteft also has massive problems with recreation seekers along the main riverbank this corona summer. This became clear at the town council meeting on tuesday evening. The residents in the vicinity of the main want to get help quickly, and a meeting of the city council with the residents was already scheduled for wednesday evening.

The sandy beach at the "old drive in marktsteft was considered a secret for a long time, but in the past few years there have been repeated complaints about the surrounding area. This year, however, the situation seems to be escalating. Last weekend, deputy mayor manuela wagner was called to the former sports field because residents had cordoned off the land in the surrounding area with tape – which is not legally permissible, but shows the mood in the village.

Concept to be developed

From complete closure of the land for a day to the installation of more litter bins and the city's toilet van, the suggestions for a quick solution ranged. For the coming year, a concept is to be developed to channel the streams of visitors. For, according to mayor thomas reichert, "it's our town, but not our main."

Milk and nuts are taboo

Milk and nuts are taboo

Simon kirchner suffers from anaphylaxis, milk and nuts are life-threatening for him. Only the skin contact is dangerous. In order for him to be able to attend school as safely as possible, the community of sandberg and the elementary school had to organize a number of things in order to integrate simon. Simon kirchner from waldberg is seven years old. He attends the first class of the sandberg elementary school. The fact that he suffers from anaphylaxis is not obvious to simon. "Anaphylaxis is an acute, severe and life-threatening allergic reaction", explains mother melanie kirchner. This means that simon reacts very strongly to certain foods and ingredients. "Extremely strong reaction of simon to cow’s milk and nuts. In the worst case these can have a lethal effect if consumed."

For the kindergarten visit alone, this means that a whole series of precautionary measures had to be taken to ensure simon’s safety. The kindergarten in waldberg has implemented this in an exemplary manner and has given the kirchner family excellent support. The transition to school was just as successful. Since touching and physical contact with the products can also lead to wheals, redness, swelling of the skin and respiratory distress, there is always a basic danger for simon when he eats together with his playmates. All those working at the school have undergone extensive training to be able to help effectively and quickly in case of emergency. Not only principal jutta spee and class teacher georg schafer, but the entire staff, secretary, janitor, lunch supervisor and bus supervisor.

Telephone in the classroom

The costs of the training, which cost around 800 euros, were borne by the government of lower franconia and the municipality of sandberg. The training is refreshed once every six months, but simon’s mother takes care of this herself. In addition, all parents of the sandberg elementary school were informed about the problem and asked for help. In concrete terms, this means that you don’t give your children any food containing nuts and that dairy products are avoided.
