Excessive heat and sunshine can be very damaging to plants

The few days of heat have already been enough to burn some berry fruits. The sun is increasingly acting like a burning glass: climate change is leaving many traces behind. Already last year, the damage caused by sunburn to leaves and soft fruits was very alarming.

Rainfall is extremely important for plants

An overcast sky, on the other hand, is a real boon for plants. If it hadn't been for the wet weather about five weeks ago, nature would have been in for a disaster. Water reserves in the soil were too low after the few rains in winter and spring to withstand a long drought without damage. So, however, dawned an incredible wax weather.

Too much sunshine is bad for vegetation

The humidity and pleasant warm love the vegetable seeds only so sprouted. The grass has reached an unusual height this year. Unfortunately, many people only want sunshine and forget how bad it is for our vegetation in the ubermab. In the forest, a permanent conversion of tree species that can better cope with climate change is already being practiced. By the way, many plants stop growing altogether when the heat is too intense and the sun is too hot.

But the expert gave the all-clear: as the fire department reported on monday, it was not a highly poisonous spider species as had been feared.

Union seniors celebrate

Union seniors celebrate

Apart from the fact that they live in the same town, they were both employed by wiegand-glas. Horst greiner transported the bottles with a forklift truck, and joachim schulz earned his living as a glass sorter.
Both also have the IG BCE in common. He has been a member of the union since 1952, says joachim schulz. 27 years he also represented the interests of the employees as a works council member.
At that time, it was simply necessary to join the union. Already during the first weeks of the company’s membership they were approached by colleagues about the membership. A lot has changed since then, not least because of the IG BCE union. For example, according to horst greiner, in earlier times it was the rule to work six hours on saturday. The weekly working time was 48 hours. The introduction of the 40-hour week, for example, was a merit of the trade union. And what’s more: "being a member of the IG BCE simply made me feel safer!"
The annual senior citizens’ meeting of the IG BCE has a fixed place in the diary for both of them, as do the senior citizens’ meetings at wiegand-glas.

Hilmar zipp bids farewell after 29 years

Arnt uwe schille is the new chairman of the SPD in lichtenfels. His deputies are ina dorsch and sven eisele. New secretary is ingrid bogdahn, treasurer remains christoph spath. Helmar zipp, a long-serving city councilor, was bidden farewell. This was the result of the annual meeting in the lichtenfels city palace.

The 25 guests needed as much space in the city palace due to hygiene regulations as the 120 at the nomination of the mayoral candidate in november 2019. Mayor andreas hugerich summarized this period: "i received unbelievable support during the election campaign. Everyone had their share. Today we are the strongest SPD ever in lichtenfels."

This also has an impact on the district council, as deputy district administrator monika faber emphasized: "we have four people from lichtenfels in the district council. Our candidates over 60 years of age were well elected." The success was explained by the chairman of the lichtenfels city council, arnt uwe schille: "we are a colorful, contentious bunch in the group, which gathers ideas from all directions, not just nods off the proposals of the administration. These impulses move the city forward."

“Woman power” sprinkles many allusions to poxdorf

As part of this year's patronage festival, the poxdorf theater group performed "women's power" brought to the stage, a tale in three acts by bernd gombold. The author is a long-time mayor of his home municipality of inzighofen in baden-wurttemberg.

He incorporates many suggestions from everyday life into his pieces. In keeping with the municipal election campaign in the spring of 2020, "women power" is the name of the game to show disputes in a small french village, which ticks similarly as poxdorf. The allusions are numerous and are honored by the audience with laughter and applause.

Under the careful overall direction of heidi meibner, the theater ensemble once again succeeded in thrilling and entertaining the audience. 280 chairs had been set up in the fully occupied school gymnasium; however, they were not enough, so that spectators also had to take their seats at the sides. The curtain rises; on the stage the interior of a rustic furnished guest room can be seen, with a small bar, tables and chairs, a tiled stove and red and white patterned curtains at the windows. A striking feature is a door that has obviously only recently been set into the right wall: the masonry around it is still unplastered. It is election time, and mayor heinz gscheidle (alfons singer) has found it useful to have direct access from his office to the guest room, which is also used as a council chambers and is run by the (allegedly) hard-headed and obtuse landlady paula (roswitha obermayr). He sees his re-election through an "emancipation list" danger, which has set itself the goal of breaking the man rule in the local council.

Playground land is being prepared

playground land is being prepared

The playground at the fire station in biebelried is to take shape according to the wishes of mayor roland hoh. Some suggestions came from the ranks of the municipal council in the youngest session on this subject. The first thing to do now is to create a sensible look, because "the way the site is now is no solution," said hoh.

Manfred kleinschrodt suggested at the town council meeting in kaltensondheim that the heap of earth should be left as it is and the rest sawn on. Andrea czech would be cautious with bush plantings for the time being, if one wants to provide the flat with playgrounds in the foreseeable future. Barbara mechler agreed with this, saying that at best she could only imagine planting on the edges of the site.

Fence is coming down

Since on the old fenced part above the sandbox no more play equipment is there, the fence is to be removed. Then the flat is united with the land in front of the fire station. Burgermeister hoh and udo hager will then take care of the temporary improvement of the ranking. When both see a need, the local council meets on site. The board now has to decide what the site should look like later and how much to spend on which playgrounds. Gunnar kraub already put forward the sum of 100,000 euros.
