“Kronach lights up” in the future already at the beginning of may

The organizing team around klaus metzler and the board of the "kronach creativ" association have decided to organize the light event "kronach leuchtet" to be carried out as early as may next year – specifically from the 3rd of may. Until 12.May.

According to board member helmut schiffner and project manager klaus metzler, there are good reasons for this: because it gets dark earlier in may, kronach can really shine as early as 8 p.M. This also gave the caterers a long time to organize events.

Edgar kast gives seniors in the district of bad kissingen safety on the road

Whoever experiences edgar kast at one of his rollator courses will understand that these are not a compulsory task for the retired police officer and traffic educator. With the passion and enthusiasm he used to put into traffic education for schoolchildren, he now passes on his knowledge about the safe use of rollators. His idea is in demand. He now holds around 15 courses a year and has long been on the road as a lecturer and course leader, and not just in the district of bad kissingen. As is certainly often the case, kast will be performing this afternoon at the "haus der familie" senior citizens’ home in windheim asked about his activity. "You probably need this?" Asks one of the guests jokingly. Edgar kast smiles and answers his counterpart: "a little bit already."

Twice this year, the local CSU association of munnerstadt has already booked the traffic educator for a scooter course. Once kast was in a retirement home in munnerstadt, now he is in the family home in windheim. Most of the listeners are residents of the house. Thorsten harnus, local chairman of the munnerstadt CSU, thinks that the course would be just the thing for relatives who are perhaps about to make the decision to buy such a walking aid for their husband or parents.

Max lorenz, the indispensable hero

Max lorenz, the indispensable hero

No, unfortunately I cannot analyze the latest interview of katharina wagner from the austrian magazine news, because I do not have the original version yet. So does the place remain, as planned, to remember the rough wagnertenor max lorenz, who died on 11. January 1975 died in vienna.

Born max sulzenfub in dusseldorf in 1901, the son of a butcher felt "irresistibly drawn to opera" at an early age. He secretly took singing lessons in koln until his father finally agreed to his training as a singer. With ernst grenzebach in berlin he learned to file the rust off his powerful but rather rough and sprode voice. In 1926 he won a singing competition and made his debut in dresden as walther von der vogelweide in "tannhauser" and was invited to the new york met a short time later. In 1931, he moved to the berlin state opera and was soon to be in demand worldwide as a heldentenor – even at the 1937 coronation celebrations in london.

Why is autumn so colorful?

The mixed forests in the steigerwald and the habbergen are currently offering a magnificent play of colors. Green, yellow, ocher, orange, red, brown: the treetops shine in many colors, they outshine the landscape everywhere. The eyes of the observer are pleased. The biologist is sorry. Not really, it was just because of the rhyme: the biologist answers the question why all the colors are like this. But he first has to make a long story short.

Limited water available
It is clear what follows after the colorful show. Most deciduous trees shed their leaves. Jurgen thein, biologist and nature paddagoge from habfurt, can explain it all in context. "First of all you have to ask yourself: why do they shed their leaves??", it begins. Most people know the answer from school: in winter, trees have only limited water available to them. When the ground freezes, they may have to survive days or weeks of drought. If they had (active) leaves in the geast in such a phase, they would not grab it. "They lose a lot of water through the leaves", explains thein.
No wonder, because the flatness of the leaves makes up a large part of the tree. A deciduous tree growing in these latitudes carries an average of 30,000 leaves. The older and coarser it gets, the more there are. When it is between 80 and 100 years old and 25 to 30 meters tall, it has about 800,000 leaves (depending on the species), which corresponds to a leaf surface of 1600 square meters. To take care of them would be impossible in the cold, central european winter. So trees that switch to low flame in winter "cut the connection to the leaves", says thein.

Laughter allowed – despite everything

Laughter allowed - despite everything

Who is still in the mood for jokes despite the seriousness of the situation?? A goal that still laughs! The exception: at astor. The word acrobat from the north of munich opened the second series of events on the bohmerwiese on wednesday evening, joking his way through the ratoromanic family of languages, lurking for gestures in the audience, in order to cut a spontaneous joke. That succeeded from the first point there, already the first joy tears rolled down the cheeks. These locks closed only minutes later, the sky gates however were well-disposed to the approximately 200 visitors.

200 visitors? The corona-uncertainty is traceable at every corner, on the whole festival area of the gartner family bohmer with all the specifications of a sophisticated hygiene concept, at the organizer, at the artist and at the visitors behind their masks. While willy astor's wordplay attracted almost 800 visitors to the lake stage in bad staffelstein almost a year ago, the crowds in bamberg remained modest. What also applies to the cash crash. The two weeks of the event will not yield much profit. But gay heyder from veranstaltungsservice bamberg doesn't want to take stock yet. "Let's see what will come until sunday."
