Christopher haase on the seasonal home stretch

The motorsport season enters the home stretch. Christopher haase from kirchleus is letting it roll out slowly and is already looking back on a successful 2018: "it was a good season overall, i’m satisfied." Most recently, audi and the carcollection team used him in the long-distance race at the nurburgring – as a test driver, so to speak. The 31-year-old was able to drive the brand-new audi R8 LMS evolution, which will be used in the GT3 races in 2019, for the first time in a race.

"The differences from the previous R8 LMS lie primarily in the aerodynamics", haase explains. The even more streamlined front spoiler is particularly eye-catching. But because the new car has not yet been tested and approved by the organizers, haase and his teammate, DTM driver jamie green, had to start from the back of the grid in the SPX class, just like the new aston martin. In addition, all SPX cars were given an extra 20 seconds at each of the three pit stops.

Despite the handicap, haase and green drove at the 50. Barbarossa prize over a four-hour race distance to fifth place. "It was a good debut for the new car. The nurburgring is the ideal place to put a car through its paces, says the kirchleuser.

Higher costs for the ransbach

The renaturation of the ransbach has been a topic of discussion in the municipal council since 2015. On 23. In february 2017, the municipal council had decided to award the contract for planning the renovation of the creek to the planning office dietz und partner from elfershausen.

In the meantime a limited tender has taken place. The planning office examined the offers received and prepared a price list. The offer of the most favorable company contained an inadmissible mixed calculation concerning the building site equipment. For this purpose, the office consulted the VOB office at the government of lower franconia. A discussion is therefore still required with the most favorable bidder.

In addition, a cost calculation was made on the basis of the tender result. The calculation has shown that against the cost calculation from the building design of about 180,000 euros total costs of almost 260,000 euros are to be expected. That is almost 80,000 euros more.

The rent brake does little in bamberg

The rent brake does little in bamberg

The students of a shared apartment in concordia-strabe are still among those to bite the bullet: rent increase of a full 20 percent!

Price increases of this magnitude will no longer be possible as early as next week. As early as august, the bavarian state government will introduce a price brake in bamberg and 88 other cities in the state. It limits the maximum rent increases within three years from 20 to 15 percent.

The increase for the students would have been a few euros lower in this case. Not to be underestimated, one would think – given the housing costs in bamberg, which are not exactly low for low-income earners. This was also the consensus of the city council, which requested in june that the regulation for munich also be applied in bamberg. Tenor at the time: everything must be done to prevent prices from rising even further.
Nevertheless, the new law, which was introduced six weeks before the state elections, has not met with much enthusiasm in bamberg. Not even the city’s top tenant protector, thomas kliemann of the tenants’ association, believes that the rent brake will achieve the goal formulated by justice minister beate merk (CSU) of curbing the rapid price increases. "It’s just a drop in the bucket – and the real price drivers will be spared", says the lawyer for rental law.

40 Years ago, the county walked into the future

40 years ago, the county walked into the future

In bavaria, 71 out of 143 counties. "The regional reform has laid the foundation for the positive development of the habberge district over the past 40 years", explains district administrator rudolf handwerker (CSU), according to a press release from the district administration office. The former county of habfurt and most of the counties of ebern and hofheim were incorporated on 1 january 2009. July 1972, and as a result, today's habberge district was created with its first 25 and later 26 communities (ermershausen was separated from maroldsweisach and became independent). "In the last 40 years we have managed to create a piece of county identity", means the landrat.

Planning for the jubilee

This historic event is to be celebrated in style this year. "The anniversary is not only about illuminating history. As a modern and service-oriented county, we must continue to develop over the next 40 years. Therefore, the festive year should also be an incentive to think about how we can best respond to new challenges in order to become even more efficient in the district and the municipalities, in line with the goal of the municipal area reform, emphasizes craftsman.

Hertha draws line after 35 days

Hertha draws line after 35 days

After announcing that it would not appeal to the arbitration court against the relegation match against fortuna dusseldorf (2:2), the second-division club, which is in debt to the tune of 34.7 million euros, is concentrating on personnel planning for the new season, which begins on sunday with the start of training.

For the time being, only a skeleton team will be playing on the training ground. Because of the legal dispute, hertha has lost a lot of time and has not yet been able to make any transfers. Manager michel preetz has so far sorted out a quintet in andrej mijatovic (ingolstadt), tunay torun (vfb stuttgart), christian lell, andreas ottl and patrick ebert (new clubs open), but according to media reports, anis ben-hatira is also about to jump ship. The club baniyas SC from abu dhabi is said to have offered the striker six million euros for a four-year contract.

Hertha hopes to make double-digit millions by selling its pearls raffael and adrian ramos, but apparently the offers made so far do not yet match the capital club’s expectations. Ramos will be granted extended leave due to country match commitments with colombia, as will roman hubnik, who reached the european championship quarterfinals with the czech team. The herthans are keeping their fingers crossed for the central defender, because every day he plays in the european championships increases the costs for the cash-strapped capital club by 9300 euros. So far, hertha has collected around 260,000 euros for hubnik and will be able to collect as much as 353,000 euros if the czechs reach the final.

A fir with straw stars as a kerosene tree

A fir with straw stars as a kerosene tree

A kerwasbaam of a special kind accompanied the church fair in fortschwind last weekend: a magnificent nordmann fir, adorned with straw stars and glittering tinsel, stood in the middle of the pond and created – well, not a christmas atmosphere, but a kerwas atmosphere. "In any case, one has a hard time with the peeling" julian, one of the younger kerwas boys, quipped.

The reason was of course different: the boys actually wanted to refrain from putting up a tree this year, after a tree thief from the neighboring village had injured himself last year while fleeing from the protectors of the spruce tree. But two days before kirchweihbeginn "a few beers were also involved", markus admits – but they decided: without a tree there is nothing. Of course, there was no spruce to be found in a hurry. However, professional connections of one of the boys made it possible to fir. So we improvised, and if we were going to do it, we also used the christmas decorations.

The protection provided by placing it in the pond – the original idea for the already unusual location of a church consecration tree – was not enough on its own. The fir tree was still standing undamaged on sunday.

It will not be easy for erhard schumacher to say goodbye to his working life at the oberthulba freeway maintenance depot. The 28 years he spent as a tram master and head of the oberthulba service station were a lot of fun for him. "That was also the reason why I extended my working period for another year, but now it`s time", so schumacher. When he finishes his service, he will also leave oberthulba with his wife sylvia and enjoy his retirement in iphofen with one of his sons as grandpa.

"In my years at the oberthulba station, I have experienced many things that will remain in my memory, especially when I think back to the mass accident on january 1, 2009. January 2000 on the rhon freeway think." 136 vehicles crashed into each other in heavy fog. "But also with the numerous other accidents or the many construction sites my improvisation talent was challenged again and again. The construction of the new sinntal bridge and the demolition of the old bridge will remain a highlight for me." Helping road users and using short service routes while applying common sense have always been important, schumacher emphasizes.

A very demanding task was the winter road maintenance, which had to be carried out under the most difficult conditions. "I also gained a lot of experience from my work as head of the foreman's workshop in hirschaid from 1991 to 1994." There the whole business had to be built on the green meadow.

German manufacturers want to sell more diesel cars

German manufacturers want to sell more diesel cars

German carmakers are backing the diesel despite all the debate. For climate protection, the share of diesel in new registrations, which has fallen sharply recently, must rise again, said bernhard mattes, president of the german association of the automotive industry (VDA), in berlin.

"We must not obscure our view of CO2 in the face of all the discussions about nitrogen dioxide," said mattes. "The future of the car is primarily electric." But internal combustion engines were still needed for a long time.

Diesel engines have been criticized for years for emitting harmful nitrogen dioxide, but they emit less climate-damaging carbon dioxide (CO2) than gasoline engines. The industry will have to advertise more strongly again, said mattes.
