May protective masks be worn at the wheel of driving services?

Section 23, paragraph 4, of the road traffic regulations is currently causing uncertainty. The law states that "anyone driving a motor vehicle must not cover or conceal their face in such a way that they are no longer recognizable." but especially the employees of the numerous driving services such as the workers’ samaritan association (ASB) do not usually sit alone in the vehicle – and therefore have to wear a mouth guard in corona times. A representative of the police confirmed to the ASB that the health aspects are paramount.

Since the minimum distance in a vehicle can usually not be guaranteed, the wearing of a mouth guard is permitted and required. It is not a matter of concealing one’s identity, which is actually forbidden.

Polish business delegation visits kulmbach

Kulmbach is not only the secret capital of beer, but also enjoys an excellent reputation far beyond the regional borders in terms of economic demands. This even reaches as far as the polish town of tomaszow mazowiecki.
A delegation headed by district administrator miroslaw kuklinski and deputy mayor zofia szymanska recently visited the city of kulmbach to talk to mayor henry schramm and find out more about the demand reductions for companies.
During an economic analysis of the polish city of tomaszwo mazowiecki, the two cities of klagenfurt in austria and kulmbach were suggested for a foreign visit. The two trips are part of an EU project financed by a regional development fund.

Great confirmation

"I am very pleased that kulmbach was chosen for the economic analysis. It's a great confirmation of our constant efforts to make kulmbach attractive for businesses", according to mayor henry schramm beforehand.
Following a stay in klagenfurt, the polish delegation set off for kulmbach. In addition to meetings with representatives of the bayreuth chamber of commerce and industry and a visit to the ireks company and the bavarian farmers' association, among others, the program included a conversation with mayor henry schramm and thomas tischer, who is responsible for the city's economic development department.

Still no verdict against drug dealer

Between november 2011 and february 2012, five times 500 grams of hashish are said to have changed hands in the southern district of kronach, each at a selling price of 3500 euros. In addition, the accused, who is of polish origin, is alleged to have sold small quantities of cocaine or hashish on further occasions during the same period.

The man from kersbach, who was represented by lawyer till wagler, has so far made no statements in court. His suspected partner, who is now serving a prison sentence and is also a drug addict like the defendant, had heavily incriminated him at the trial in december 2012. He had cooperated with the police in advance and had given concrete clues about the suspect. A business that the bamberger had "commissioned" the police should do with the accused, but he loves to burst, because he "cold fube" got.

What wolfgang flaschner has been through in the past 29 days is best seen on his hands: calluses and cracked blisters run down all his fingers. Good 10.000 kilometers he covered on his motorcycle, plus the transport of his bike and those of his companions martin scheerer (55) and henning willig (54). However, it was not on well-maintained tarred roads, but through the desert and over gravel: "you drive constantly with absolute high concentration", he reported. And the hands inevitably cramped up. Therefore the blisters.

The trip through central asia had it all: the three adventurers drove at 45 degrees in the deserts of uzbekistan and minus 5 degrees at the kyzyl-art pass on the border to kyrgyzstan, 30 meters below sea level in kazakhstan up to almost 4700 meters at the ak-baytal pass. "The motorcycle might still bring 20 percent of power", reports flaschner. To keep the mixture ratio right in the dark air, the bikers had to keep changing the carburetor jets.

Already in the meeting in october of last year, the municipal council approved the draft regional development program, but rejected the obligation to define priority areas for the construction of wind power plants in the regional plans and was thus also against the designation of priority areas for the construction of such plants in the municipal area of reckendorf.

The municipality is also against the fact that the regional planning associations have been given the opportunity to define priority and reserve areas for free-standing photovoltaic plants without the consent of the municipality.

Around the insect biotope at lerchenbuhl in kitzingen, members and candidates of the bavarian party planted five willow cat trees as a food source for bees. This is what the party writes in a press release. Furthermore, the members of the kitzingen district and city council uwe hartmann installed five bird nesting boxes. According to hartmann, insects and birds form a symbiosis on this terrain and with simple measures like these one can provide for a natural balance in a protected, wild environment. "You don’t always have to spend a lot of money to achieve success", said the city councilor, and recalled his city council motion to issue "kitzingen bluht-articles of association. Also here with relatively little financial means much is achieved for the diversity of species, because if each kitzinger was only two square meters of insect-suitable flower and herb patches, then kitzingen would really be a "green city on the river" and a paradise for insects, birds and bats, said hartmann according to the press release.

At the community council meeting on thursday, second mayor martin rebhan (SPD) announced an important decision from the non-public meeting: the fubganger bridge over the lauter in the area of wassergasse/am brunnen is to be closed for safety reasons. Whether or not a replacement fence will be built will be a topic of discussion in the council at a later date, he said.

Rebhan (SPD) chaired his first municipal council meeting. For immediately after the election of sebastian straubel (CSU) as district administrator, he had to take the seat on the mayor’s chair in the town hall.

Discovery tour in the hospital

19 children from the district spent their afternoon in the clinic on tuesday. But not as patients – no, they took part in the first event of the vacation program.
Nurse doris krappmann and secretary pia stohr guided the five- to 15-year-olds through the rooms of the hospital for an hour and a half.
There was a lot to discover: after the funeral, the tour started in the basement. There the children could peek into the rough toilet of the hospital. A chef also took a moment to show the children the huge pots, ladles and whisks that are used every day to cook for the up to 240 patients each day.

Children got to know basement
It went on to the storeroom, where boxes were everywhere. "Everything that is needed in a hospital is stored here. Needles, syringes, patches – we have 5000 items down here", explained johanna fuchs, the store manager, and gave the children a pack of sprayers – without canulas, of course – to take home.
The third station in the basement was the laundry. "Here all used beds are cleaned and freshly made", sister doris said, as she led the children further into the room.
The children were amazed at the dryer and the mangle for the bedclothes because of their enormous coarseness. After that, they marched up the stairs to the first floor. Here the nurse, sebastian tremel, was already waiting for the group with his helpers in the emergency room.
"Who liked to be plastered?", he buried the children. Immediately the first volunteer patients sat on the couch and loved to bandage their arms, head and legs.
