On this evening in obertrubach, everything was just right

The new year’s concert, to which the local groups of barnfels, geschwand, obertrubach and wolfsberg of the french-swiss associations (FSV) invited to the parish church of st. Germany, ended with gleaming eyes and enthusiastic listeners. The group had invited the members of st. Laurentius to a joint event.

Everything just fit that evening. For almost two hours, the world-renowned "don cossack choir serge jaroff" was in love the deep russian soul in his singing traces. The top-class ensemble under the direction of vanya hlibka conveyed the whole magic and melancholy of russian music in the highest perfection with powerful and wonderfully timbred voices. His repertoire ranged from solemn songs of the russian orthodox church to well-known catchy folk tunes such as "kalinka" and classical compositions such as the unmistakable "ave maria". Classically powerful bass solos and admirable, fine solo voices filled the church nave. In the end, the singers were not stingy with the encores, after the standing ovation would not end.

Alexander fehn now leads the fire department

Alexander fehn is the new chairman of the windheim volunteer fire department. He replaced klaus volk, who did not run again for personal reasons.

Volk had reported at the beginning about the activities in the past year. Among other things, he mentioned the holding of st. Florian’s day and the renovation and reconstruction work on the fire station. Volk looked back to 2016, when he had taken over the chairmanship of the association. At that time, the most important task was to get a functioning active fire brigade off the ground. This is the result of many individual discussions and ultimately the merit of all active firefighters and a leadership team that performs outstanding volunteer work.

It is known that a large part of the area in question belonged to helmut blank's parents.

The 50-year-old man with a doctorate would have preferred to exclude the public, but his lawyer bernhard eckert withdrew this motion that had been made in advance. There was also nothing honorable in what the man had to report. He had been alone at the annafest last july, looking for a place to sit, and finally got together with a 46-year-old woman who had the same wish. They eventually found him among like-minded strangers, sat down and engaged each other in conversation.
About what happened next, they both sounded very different. The man, who actually wanted to meet colleagues and go on vacation the next day, had, as he said, only wanted to be nice, talked a lot about himself and about the fact that the people sitting at the table were not quite his level.

Fuss about chief hygienist at regiomed

The sonneberg district is currently one of the corona hotspots in germany, even though the infection figures have fallen recently. The effects can also be seen at the sonneberg hospital: because several employees were also infected, an admission freeze was imposed there about 14 days ago. That’s why the hospital is currently treating just 40 patients, 9 of them with covid 19 disease. This corresponds to a utilization rate of 16 percent, said regiomed chief executive officer alexander schmidkte on wednesday.

The emergency room is still open, even if patients are admitted to other hospitals in the regiomed network or to neighboring hospitals. The coburg hospital also currently treats patients from the sonneberg area. 17 of these patients are in the normal ward in coburg, four need intensive care.

Consumer users demand: make it easier for customers

Consumer users demand: make it easier for customers

One click – and the contract is closed. Whether it’s a music subscription, a cell phone contract, or an electricity provider, it’s often much more difficult to get a quote than it is to buy something on the internet. Especially from contracts that are automatically extended, many consumers get out much later than they would like to.

Consumer users and politicians are therefore now calling for: make it easier for customers. "Too often, it costs consumers unnecessary time and effort to check out contracts," said tabea robner, spokeswoman for network policy for the grunen parliamentary group, to the deutsche presse agency. "Everyone who has ever concluded a contract online and wants to get it back has already experienced it: it doesn’t work that easily."

Costume and specialty market in Frensdorf

Already at the opening on saturday the visitors streamed into the former fischer-hof. It was interesting what there was to see, smell and taste, and where the visitors came from. Cornelia stahl, for example, comes "from the dresden corner", but now lives in franken.

She is particularly fond of the typical french bakery products. Therefore she immediately takes the cooking and baking book written by kerstin rentsch in hand. It runs culinary through the year and you can learn a lot about traditions, the author tells.
