Actually the frankenwald is known as a beer region. Nevertheless, it is documented that wine was served here more than 700 years ago. The question remains, however, where the wine came from and whether once there were also grapevines in the franconian forest.

Certainly the main part of the wine consumption at that time consisted of self-made fruit wines, for example from the popular sloes, currants or gooseberries, because every burgher of kronach was entitled to serve wine as well as beer. At this point, we would like to remind you of the wine tavern of the schubert family, the "fassla-schubert" in kronach, whose house had to give way only 1965 to the new building of a department store, or to the wine economy schubert in friesen.

Rudolf kostas brings viennese schmah to life

The well-known baritone, equipped with a dark timbre, is a witty reciter, poet and profound actor. He led through the evening with charm and wit, sometimes in sentimental irony, sometimes in background dreariness, reviving wiener schmah and paying homage especially to women.

He is assisted by matthias spindler, a congenial partner from the theater zwickau-plauen, who accompanies the performance in a flirtatious dance manner. It is the charisma of kostas, which radiates a certain esprit, his closeness especially to the female audience. As a cavalier of the old school he kneels down "kiss the hand, gracious lady", pats one cheek, pines at, blatantly admires some forms, but always keeps his composure. "Growing old together and staying young, he sings, and a few spontaneously looks for their own hands and and prints them firmly.

Kronach craftsmen roll up their sleeves in the crisis

The corona virus dominates the headlines of 2020. In the beginning, everything revolved around medical aspects, but as time went on, short-time work, the threat of company bankruptcies and existential fears came more and more into focus.

A field of tension in which the domestic craft businesses also find themselves. Their situation in the pandemic varies greatly from industry to industry, however, as district master craftsman heinrich schneider notes during an interview in his carpentry shop in theisenort. Mr. Schneider, how did the skilled trades in the kronach district react to the lockdown and the hygiene decreases?? Heinrich schneider: the uncertainty was great in the beginning. We have implemented the specifications to the best of our knowledge and belief. But in the course of time, they overtook each other so quickly that we hardly knew what the current status was. There was different information every day. The kreishandwerkerschaft has supported us well in this phase. The important thing was that we were then classified as systemically important. We were and are very careful in our work. There were no problems at all with the police and the authorities. While others were in lockdown, many craftsmen had to work on-site for customers. Was this performance perceived by the public?? There have really been people who have said: "it’s okay that you come." in the beginning, there was sometimes a bit more tip money from one or the other employee. How were such work visits from the point of view of the craftsmen?? Some of those who had to go to the customer did not feel good afterwards when they went back to their colleagues in the workshop. We also heard of a case in which a customer denied a corona infection, which paralyzed an entire workshop. We occasionally had to ask our craftsmen to distance themselves from a customer, but the behavior of most people was really okay. There was a lot of common sense and a lot of decency involved. Does the crisis affect the craft sector at the economic level?? The skilled trades are much more resilient to such situations than industry is. Exceptions are of course branches such as our hairdressers, butchers or bakers, who were hit hard by the protection measures. If you have worked close to people, short-time work was already an issue. Apart from that, however, the structure of the skilled trades is different – better – than that of industry. We’re more familiar, in industry the employee becomes a number much more quickly. But the amount of work that had to be done to organize the various acceptance tests was quite a challenge for us. And then there were certainly also delivery bottlenecks. Correct. Procuring materials was difficult at the beginning. Because some suppliers quickly went into short-time work, some things became scarce. It could happen that a craftsman produced something for 10,000 euros, but then he was missing a 50-euro component for it. The only thing that often helped was to look for alternatives ourselves – and that in turn meant more work for us. That’s why I’m also against making such a blanket demand for short-time work again. What has helped the craft in this situation? The reduction in value-added tax, at least, hardly. It gave us blob more work. Only those craftsmen who have sold trades, for them it is good. In my opinion, the lever had to be applied to social security contributions; what a good employee earns today is too little, but what he costs the company is too much. There is a huge gap. What would mean another lockdown for the craft?? It will hit even harder the companies that have already been hit by the first lockdown. Then our customers certainly became more cautious, because they could no longer foresee where the journey would take them. And once again, people were no longer so relaxed.

Report: new structure for the bka because of militant right-wingers

According to a media report, the federal criminal police office (BKA) is to be given a new structure and more personnel in order to be able to take more intensive action against right-wing terrorist groups and individual offenders.

In addition, the authority in wiesbaden is to have a "central office for combating hate crime" in the future, as WDR, NDR and "suddeutsche zeitung" (monday) report. The media refer to a current BKA planning paper. The report states that up to 440 additional positions are needed for the restructuring.

Rip-off and fraud with 'credit free' credit offer

Victims were said to be around 400,000 people a year who did not receive regular loans from banks because of unemployment or high debts. The amount of damage is estimated at 150 million euros per year.

In the survey, the testers asked 69 providers in 177 cases for loans of between a few thousand and several tens of thousands of euros. Only in two cases had the loan actually been given – but then at an almost unconscionable 25 percent annual interest rate, said debt counsel christian maltry.

The celtic adventure playground "spielwinix attracts numerous visitors to the cordigast. The road from paffendorf to there is in a bad condition though. The construction committee voted not to tar the road, but to gravel it instead. That was quite sufficient, he said.

Ludwig winkler of the free burghers of the villages (FBO) recalled that it was a former forestry road that was only 3.50 meters wide. In the course of the decades the way had been extended to five meters. For the 500 meters after the parking lot, which are only open to agricultural and forestry traffic, there should therefore be no widening to five meters, but only the roadway should be prepared.

To the article "role ruckwarts with the kitzinger station" from 14.11. The following reader's letter reached the editorial office. A few words about the endless kitzingen train station story: the tragedy in the matter of the city train station, which is currently on the siding again, leads me to the following thoughts, which consider yet another aspect. I am referring to the workshop on the design of the railroad station, which took place several years ago.

What is the point of organizing workshops at the municipal or communal level in which the citizen can participate?? Do you really want citizen participation?? Or do these events only serve to make it look that way, or because that's the way people think it should be done today?? There was citizen participation on urban development, on ILEK, on LEADER, on ESD. You pin colorful pieces of paper on the pinboards of well-paid agencies and invest hour after hour, evening after evening.

Such an obligation results neither from the telecommunication law nor from the copyright law, the judges found in a judgement published on monday (reference number: 17 HK O 1398/11 of 12 december 2011). January). The case against a company that offers its services primarily to hotels and guesthouses was dismissed. The complaint was filed by a company that operates WLAN networks throughout germany.

In 2010, the plaintiff demanded of the defendant party in the form of a warning that it could only provide WLAN networks if it also identified the users. In addition, it is only allowed to advertise compliance with the legal requirements on its website if it does so. The ruling states that no such collection of data had taken place. However, this is also not required, as the district court found.

A question of bratwurst faith

The internet is full of inflammatory writings that could hardly have been formulated more vehemently at the time of the reformation. There is talk of one right and one wrong. Of tasteful aberrations and no two opinions: one bratwurst is good, the other bad. It only depends on which denomination, pardon me, which district the sausage lover belongs to.

Differences of faith at the barbecue

Between kronach and coburg there are the coarse and fine smells: in the catholic regions the bratwursts are fine. They melt like hosties on the tongue. In coburg as far as thuringia, the coarse caliber prevails. 31-centimeter-long prugels, calculated according to the mab of saint mauritius on the town hall, are pinched into a semmel divided from above, half a double loaf of bread. There are several theories and recipes on both sides of the bratwurst line. Roughly, because protestants considered fine chopping with a cutter to be an unnecessary chore and luxury. Or: catholics were more generous. They were the first to acquire, in addition to their old, coarse meat grinders, the small chopping cutter. And because it’s not enough: even the french revenge is buried under the web of conspiracy theories and facts about the bratwurst. According to the recipe of the sausage, the rake is made of red and female, with equal proportions of red lean meat and female bacon.
