A frenchman from altenbanz in stoiber’s territory

A frenchman from altenbanz in stoiber's territory

Fritz meixner has to come to terms with one prejudice right away. No, wolfratshausen is not black. This is shown by the party affiliation of the mayors in the town. Helmut forster, the current head of the town council, belongs to the burgervereinigung wolfratshausen (BVW), which is something like the free voters in the town. Its predecessor rainer berchthold (1998 to 2008) belonged to the SPD. "And edmund stoiber has never really interfered in local politics in this way", he remembers.

So colorful wolfratshausen? A little already. And from that point of view fritz meixner fits well into the picture there. As someone who does not come from the village, does not live in the village at the moment. And doesn't even have an SPD party card. For this is the party for which the altenbanzer native is running in the municipal elections in march to become the new mayor of the city of forchheim. "The cards are reshuffled", he says with regard to the fact that incumbent forster can no longer run for office for reasons of age. "Otherwise i had not dared to take this step."

Meixner does not deny his french roots, on the contrary. Why should it be bad to come from this region?? "The most important things i took from my parents on the farm in altenbanz are things like honesty, determination, perseverance and hard work. Such a piece of down-to-earthness." And a piece of french mentality: "you just do your stuff"."

Tracing the melody of life

Tracing the melody of life

Recently a woman said after meeting one of the new priests this year:
"eternal pity that such an attractive, intelligent and likeable young man becomes a priest!" Maybe she thought: he would have been a good family man and maybe he could have taken an important leadership position in politics or economy.
Change of location: cham, german-czech priests meeting june 2018. Present are younger, but also steel thunderstorm experienced, still in dictatorship consecrated fellow brothers.A professional soldier of the german armed forces, sergeant major, who, after his retirement at the age of 53, once again takes up his studies and, after six years of priestly training, takes over a parish in the diocese of regensburg. Really poor guys??
Anselm grun gets to the heart of the matter:
"many people today think that being a christian makes you unfree, takes away all the beauty of life. But it is not like that. I know, for example, many helpers in the emergency chaplaincy service. I do not believe that it is fun for these people to visit accident sites in the late hours of the night and then to inform the relatives of the death of a loved one and to stand by them in the first shock. These people are doing this because the voice of christ in them is calling: "you are needed!" And calling them to the community.
It is now a question of pushing people towards what lies dormant in them, their life melody, possibly a call from god, but which is not allowed to grow, because quite a few people run away from this call and do not want to face it."
Spiritual vocations, however, can often only be awakened and mature if they are embedded in an atmosphere that affirms spiritual vocations in families and communities.
When congregations cultivate this communion with jesus christ, they also radiate something; then the joy of faith will appeal to others, make them curious and infect them, even with "resolute determination" to answer the call of god. Spiritual life is like a garden that blooms, grows and flourishes when it is tended and cared for.
When more women and men decide to follow jesus in a spiritual profession – and this is something to pray for – the church will shine again. Spiritual vocations are a potential source of strength for the church.
A wise woman recently said: you can’t make an omelet if you don’t have any eggs. Even the gospel cannot break through if the lord god does not find women and men as tools.
There is a lot to do, not only for priests! For example, pastoral and community workers, religious education teachers and social pedagogues have numerous opportunities for work.
Dear school leavers, before you leave for your self-experience trip to australia, why not try the free self-experience "praise night"? On the cathedral square in bamberg together with people of the same age or to take a look around at the heinrichsfest?

Deacon diethard nemmert is the archbishop’s commissioner for the call of spiritual vocations (deanery of kronach).

Fit for paris in just two years

Fit for paris in just two years

Asco has been training language professionals in coburg for over 60 years and works with many international companies. The second foreign language, spanish or french, can be learned during the two-year vocational training without any previous knowledge. At asco, in addition to the bavarian state exam for foreign language correspondents, students take an additional exam to become certified foreign language assistants. After completing the vocational training, graduates have the opportunity to enter the profession and continue their studies without a high school diploma. As a result, asco graduates can earn a bachelor’s degree in international business communication in a year at one of asco’s partner universities – or they can use their knowledge to jump into the workforce, such as justine seyfferth, a 2017 graduate who has been living and working in paris since august 2017. Asco managing director matthias schmidt-curio talked to her.

What exactly are you doing in paris?
Justine seyfferth: i work for a leading european online retailer for shoes and accessories. More precisely in its german customer service. Nevertheless, I can speak a lot of french at work, because, for example, all the programs are in french and all the entries in them are in french
programs have to be written in french.

How is life there?
Life here is great! Paris is a very inspiring city and even after five months here I still don’t feel like I’ve seen everything. Every day you find something new. The advantage of being from the EU and still under 25 is that pretty much everything is free. All museums and sights can be visited free of charge or at least at a reduced price. Lucky i’m only 19.

Julian aims high as school spokesman

Julian aims high as school spokesman

Julian fick is a normal seventeen-year-old: he likes to sit with his friends, doesn't really know what he wants to do after school, and has a lot to do there – after all, he's about to graduate from high school. But julian also holds an office that only a fraction of his peers do: at the end of last year, the schoolboy from lulsfeld was elected district school representative – and since then he has had less and less time to meet up with his friends, think about his future, or prepare for exams and the like. To buffalo.

Nevertheless, julian is happy with the choice made by all the school representatives of the grammar schools in lower franconia. "I'm someone who likes to speak his mind", he declares confidently. "And school topics simply interest me – after all, I am a schoolteacher myself."

The opportunity to speak his mind has been strengthened by julian as district school spokesman. Not only does he chair the twice-yearly meeting of all school representatives in the district, he can also contribute his ideas at the state level – even if it's a lengthy process before they reach the top. "The state school conference only has the right to inform, propose and consult," he explains, he explains. "A lot of time passes before anything happens after endless discussions." The biggest – and most important – success of the school representatives association so far has been the installation of the school councils (SMV) on the state level itself.

Savings bank closes branch in wiesenthau

savings bank closes branch in wiesenthau

At the end of the municipal council meeting in wiesenthau there was a bang. Mayor bernd drummer (BGW) announced that the savings bank would be closing its branch in. May, the savings bank will close its branch in wiesenthau. The volksbank had already withdrawn a few years ago, so that there is now no longer a financial institution represented in the municipality. Drummer received the message at short notice from the board of directors of the sparkasse. The mayor regretted the move, even though he could understand it from an economic point of view. But it breaks again a stone out of the village community. The savings bank offers assistance to elderly citizens with online banking. A real consolation is not.

Building area "binzig

Many chairs had to be moved to accommodate the audience at the town council meeting in wiesenthau town hall. The main point of interest was item 6 of the agenda for the "binzig" building area, which was: "determination of the award criteria for the building sites". It has taken decades for wiesenthau to offer building land to those willing to build in the coarse mabstab. 23 spaces will be available after development. Demand exceeds supply several times over.

Neutral assessment basis

"Since 2017, people have been knocking on my door, but it can’t just be the nose factor", mayor bernd drummer said at the meeting. So a neutral valuation basis had to be worked out. This was now available as a draft resolution in a point system. The applicant with the highest score has the first choice and so the further placement follows. Three main areas are evaluated. On the one hand it is the local factor with questions like place of residence, honorary office, place of work. In addition, there are social criteria such as children, family criteria or need for care. It is a broad spectrum of questions. The system favors the local population, families with children and applicants with social commitment, but does not exclude applicants from outside the company. Because the municipality of wiesenthau is the seller of the plots, the actual use can also be controlled. This means that construction must take place within three years, thus avoiding building setbacks. It is also hoped that speculators can essentially be excluded.

In action for safety around hochstadt

In action for safety around hochstadt

"We invested around 1800 volunteer hours in traffic safety last year.", siegfried nurnberger summarized. As chairman of the hochstadter verkehrswacht, he presented the work of his association in figures at the annual general meeting.

In 2018, 310 schoolchildren took their bike test, 340 children took part in the school road safety training course, and 54 school crossing guards and 50 adult school road helpers defused dangerous traffic situations. For these helpers, there are now 100 new neon yellow vests sponsored by the sparkasse foundation. Nurnberger is particularly proud of the number 0, because "there has not been a single accident at the crossings we guard, and that since we began our work around 50 years ago." The mayors of hochstadt, weisendorf, wachenroth, hemhofen and rottenbach also credit the traffic police for this success and thanked them at the meeting for their good cooperation.

After the reports of the board of directors there was a special honor for loyal members. Hans joachim schacher can look back on 50 years of service in the hochstader traffic patrol. "Actually, everyone knows me by the name of jochen," he said with a laugh, he said with a laugh, looking at his certificate. He was joined by the mayors of rottenbach, lonnerstadt and hemhofen, whose communities were also honored for 50 years of membership.
