The kulmbach art scene has gained a new studio

the kulmbach art scene has gained a new studio

You could almost think that a small artists’ quarter was establishing itself around the town hall. Last thursday evening marion kotyba opened her new studio with attached gallery in oberhacken 3 and invited to a vernissage at the same time.
In addition to their own works, the numerous visitors could admire iron sculptures by ralf vizethum from mistelgau. The artist knows how to breathe life into the rigid form of iron, to give it something soft, a different expression. He began sculpting with wood at the age of ten: "that’s when I made my first bull." He carved more figures out of wood and really got into it at 18. "I like the smell of iron and enjoy working in my forge studio."
Vizethum is close to nature, lives on a farm and gets his inspiration from there.
Marion kotyba met ralf vizethum at the annual exhibition of the association of french artists. "There his iron sculpture ‘stromung’ stood exactly in front of my picture, and that harmonized perfectly." Her coarse flat works in the current exhibition are reminiscent of snapshots from outer space, awakening in the viewer the idea of being able to dive into the picture. "Thanks to my training as a technical textile assistant, I know a lot about chemical processes, and that’s to my advantage", said kotyba, whose expertise allows her to predict certain outcomes. "I am very eager to experiment."
In her new studio, which she restored in record time, courses for children and adults will be offered in the future. In 2018, for example, seminars will be held on the topics of "rust&" aging", "experimental painting" or "moods of the clouds and the sky. Marion kotyba particularly enjoys working with children. "Children today often forget how to think freely, art according to scheme F is not my thing." It is important to develop one’s own ideas, because anything that is created under duress cannot be good from a creative point of view. "The children like to come to my classes because they can let their imagination run wild here."
The current exhibition is open until 31. December on view wednesdays from 10 a.M. To 2 p.M., fridays from 2 p.M. To 6 p.M. And saturdays from 11 a.M. To 4 p.M.

Sport shows solidarity with philippines

sport shows solidarity with philippines

On his facebook profile, the german-filipino player posted a picture with the words "the filipino soul is stronger than any typhoon". "I am naturally shocked and deeply saddened by the terrible news and pictures from my home country. I pray for my brothers and sisters in the philippines," the 27-year-old told the dpa news agency.

Schrock is currently in calcutta with the national team. This team is coached by german michael weib (48) and will face the indian national team in a test match on friday. A cancellation is obviously not up for debate. "I was told that the game will be broadcast in the emergency shelters and that there are many public viewing opportunities – that’s why this game is under a very special star for us," explained the frankfurt native, who holds the citizenship of his philippine mother as well as that of his german mother.

Schrock doesn’t have to worry about family members: "thank god my family is not directly affected, but members of my philippine national team unfortunately are."

Inauguration of “sterzermuhle”: hydroelectric power plant in the middle of bamberg goes online

inauguration of 'sterzermuhle': hydroelectric power plant in the middle of bamberg goes online

To "the blessing from on high of course he does not want to do without in catholic bamberg, explained munich entrepreneur johannes kraus to his guests at the funeral. So even before the builder, together with mayor andreas stark (SDP), pressed the symbolic start button for the hydroelectric power plant, prayers were first said. Cathedral chaplain markus kohmann blessed the modern plant, which will henceforth produce eco-electricity for around 300 bamberg households. "With my own little water power plant", joked the clergyman with a view to the holy water. The celebration later took place on the future visitors’ terrace of the world heritage visitors’ center.

A bumpy road

In his speech, kraus once again summed up the "sometimes bumpy road", he had walked together with the water management office, the city of bamberg, architect heinz rosenberg and all those involved. Despite all this, the project was successfully completed in a relatively short period of time – from the first idea, the "initial funding", to the completion of the project in january 2014 about the start of construction in autumn 2016 – to realize. After completion of the hydroelectric power plant on schedule, the building for the future world heritage visitor center and the planned catering business should be handed over to the tenants in about six months. The construction project was somewhat delayed due to the pending sheet piling and archaeological work on the oak piles at the site of the lower mills.

But at the end of the year, the "last eyesore" is to be completed the city will then be completely gone, says kraus. At least the topping-out ceremony for the modern new building was celebrated yesterday in the course of the inauguration of the hydroelectric power plant. In his ceremonial address, district master craftsman manfred amon focused on the future versatility of the building, where renewable energy, world cultural heritage and physical well-being will all be housed under one roof.

Bus ticket instead of driver's license: those who hand in their driver's license now get an annual ticket

Exchange action in bayreuth – bus ticket for driver’s license: the city of bayreuth takes up a suggestion from the seniors’ advisory council: citizens who are over 60 years old and voluntarily hand in their driver’s license can use public transportation in the city of bayreuth free of charge for one year. A free annual ticket is intended to make the decision easier for long-time car drivers and to create incentives for the use of public transport.

The change is easy: those who surrender their driver’s license irrevocably to the driver’s license office and declare their voluntary waiver will receive a voucher. This can be redeemed within six weeks at the customer center of bayreuth’s public utility company for an annual ticket valid for twelve months.

The city of bayreuth is making a maximum of 100 vouchers available for the exchange campaign until the end of the year. There is a comparable offer in bamberg. Our editor, sven dorr, thinks little of it: "the municipal utilities are making it too easy for themselves with their offer.

Zapfendorf: with michael senger, many things are different

Zapfendorf: with michael senger, many things are different

For many years, the meeting bell was in storage. Michael senger gives the bulky part a renaissance. Since the market town council sits far apart in the gymnasium, it needs a bell here, senger found. The 33-year-old is familiar with dealing with this type of situation. After all, he works as a sacristan in sassendorf, just as his great-grandfather did. He will continue to perform this service at the request of several people. As well as that of the local fire department commander. "I can’t abandon the defense now." Those close to him describe senger as both determined and conscientious.

Senger only entered the market town council in october as a latecomer for the sassendorf electoral community. Because he felt the electorate needed not just a mayoral candidate but an alternative in the municipal elections, he ran and managed to defeat the incumbent, albeit by a slim margin. He is also a little proud of the fact that for the first time someone from the zapfendorfer area is head of the town council.

The sassendorfer knows his way around town halls well. He started his administrative career in bamberg city hall and worked in erlangen city hall in the job center and, most recently, in the registry office. During his studies and in his daily work, senger has been able to gain an insight into many different areas. As a trained civil registrar, he is not only able to perform weddings ("the royal discipline"), unlike most of his mayoral colleagues, as senger says), but also carry out all kinds of notarizations, if it should ever be needed in zapfendorf.

Difficult year for landscape managers

Difficult year for landscape managers

The first year at the landscape conservation association was not an easy one for the new managing director aglaia abel. In april 2016, she took over the association from the late ralf kiesel, who had been out of office for more than half a year at the time. The changeover was not without its teething problems, as became clear at the members’ meeting held unusually late in the year. Normally this takes place in the spring. As the chairman of the landscape maintenance association, district administrator thomas bold (CSU), explains, the official deadlines for invitations were not met. So it was decided to postpone the meeting.

From the maintenance of rough grasslands in the saale valley to wet meadows in the black mountains, from the planting of fruit trees to the renaturation of waters. The landscape conservation association plans, organizes and carries out nature conservation and species protection projects in the county. In the past year, the maintenance teams have carried out a total of 49 maintenance measures for around 377,000 euros. Compared to previous years, this is a significant drop: since 2007, the annual revenue has always been more than half a million euros, and most recently it had settled near the 700,000 euro mark. And there is more unpleasant news: because of corrections in the accounting, the association has made a loss of about 46,000 euros instead of the expected profit.

Work left undone for months

"At the very beginning, we were faced with the problem that a large part of the application from 2015 had not yet been approved by the government of lower franconia.", reports abel. In other words, a lot of work had been left undone, which had completely used up the budget that had been allocated in advance for 2016. It was only when the bavarian ministry of the environment once again made funds available for landscape conservation associations in the fall that current projects were actually funded. "Fortunately, all of the mabnahmen could be approved", says the managing director.
