High-speed for family life

High-speed for family life

Many parents are familiar with this: they alternate between being cooks and nurses, physiotherapists and psychotherapists for their offspring. In the case of mathias and iwona jung from kitzingen, there are also: tour organizers, chief mechanics and sponsors. For the couple, that means full employment and lots of weekend trips through germany. That’s what happens when you have a successful kart racer for a son.

Dominik jung has a whole cupboard full of shiny trophies in his room. And that’s despite the fact that the 13-year-old from kitzingen only really took off last year: 2017 was his first full season as a youth kart driver in the "RK1/ world-formula" class, in which up-and-coming racers race over winding asphalt tracks with 15-hp karts at speeds of up to 90 kilometers per hour.

The circuit suits him. He obviously has the change between ideal and battle line in his blood. Between full throttle and full braking he is in his element. Dominik became bavarian youth karting champion in the fall at the first attempt. He even won the title of "german vice-champion" at the ADAC national finals. And he came in second in his class at the suddeutscher ADAC-kart-cup.

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

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.

Sales downturn at brose

sales downturn at brose

Everything is relative – even the business figures of a globally operating company like the brose group. Kurt sauernheimer, chairman of brose's management board, notes that the company performed better than the global automotive market last year, where sales fell by 1.2 percent. But there is also a decline in sales at brose – and especially at the coburg location, the decline is relatively severe at minus 2.4 percent. Sauernheimer is therefore quoted in a press release of the brose group with the words: "we cannot be satisfied with our result."

Weakening economy

The weakening economy in the automotive industry, according to the press release, is also affecting the business development of the brose group. In 2018, the supplier generated sales of around 6.3 billion euros, just below the previous year's level. "However, the result was significantly below expectations", as it is. "While we grew by six percent in the first half of the year, sales fell by seven percent in the second half", sauernheimer explains. The causes were unplanned costs for the start-up of new products and expenses for quality assurance. At the same time, upfront investments in products for the coming automotive trends had led to an increase in personnel and higher capital expenditure. As a result, fixed costs have "risen disproportionately". Higher raw material prices, punitive tariffs and special taxes would have put an additional burden on the return on investment.

Three french sites

The seat structures business unit, which is located at brose's headquarters in coburg, contributed around two billion euros in sales (equivalent to a minus of 2.4 percent) to the group's turnover. The tur business unit, based in bamberg, generated sales of 3.2 billion euros (minus 0.5 percent). The drives division from wurzburg generated over one billion euros (plus 0.9 percent).
