Driving lesson ends in mud

Surely a 37-year-old meant well when he wanted to give his fiancee a driving lesson on sunday afternoon. At around 2 p.M., he drove with her to the rough parking lot of a shopping center in ketschendorfer strabe.

He should have refrained from even this trip: it later turned out that he had 2.2 per mille of alcohol in his bloodstream. In the parking lot, the couple then swapped seats in the opel. Apparently completely inexperienced in dealing with motor vehicles, the 23-year-old woman stalled the corsa at the first attempt to drive off.

No to ghost games - majority against tests for professionals

46 percent do not like the plan of the german soccer league (dfl) to play the nine remaining games of the season in stadiums without spectators as soon as possible. This was the result of a survey conducted by the opinion research institute yougov on behalf of the deutsche presse-agentur. 34 percent of respondents, on the other hand, were in favor of ghost games.

There is even greater opposition to the provision of around 20.000 corona tests for those involved in the ghost games. 58 percent disapprove, only 22 percent approve of the planned mabnahme. The DFL had recently emphasized on several occasions that the regular tests of professional soccer players did not result in a shortage for high-risk groups or other groups in society. According to several laboratories, the existing test capacities were not exhausted anyway. If something changed in this situation, the football was withdrawn, it was assured.

In the interview, the president once again stressed the importance of a success on saturday as a high point in the club’s history.

"In the overall package in any case. That would certainly be the greatest thing that can be achieved in club football. We have always said here internally: for this final game we would leave everything else behind. It was just insanely unlikely that we would actually get there," described hoeneb. "It’s the highlight in the history of FC bayern. When you consider how many rough moments FC bayern has experienced, that almost says it all."

Too much water flows from sollberg to weibenohe?

If you drive up the steep weibenoher berg, you’ll arrive in the town of grafenberg, called sollenberg. There, on the edge of the forest, surrounded by cherry orchards near a radio mast, a small building area has been designated. But since water is known to flow downhill, the wastewater association should carry out an inspection. "The wastewater association does not see any problems coming to the sewerage system", the mayor of weibenoh, rudolf braun (WGA), reported at the municipal council meeting. "But I don’t feel very comfortable about it", said braun. He had heard from the residents of the mesnergraben that despite the prolonged drought, there is still water in the ditch. This would not normally be the case in such weather conditions. It is suspected that the water comes from sollenberg, which uses the oberflach canal. "We want to check whether something has come in from sollberg," said braun, said braun.

Strullendorf gets flexi classes in the elementary school

Strullendorf gets flexi classes in the elementary school

The strullendorf school will be the first elementary school in the bamberg district to offer flexible classes. The "flexible elementary school" concept – the new school system, which started as a pilot project in bavaria in 2010, provides for teaching to be geared to the different talents and learning requirements of elementary school students: in concrete terms, this means that students can complete the first two grades in one, two or even three years.

Classes are taught in mixed-grade groups with learning opportunities specially adapted to the diversity of the children. This is how principal dieter weinsheimer presented the project to the strullendorf town council. Since the school – together with the state education authority – decides autonomously, but the municipality as the responsible authority has to agree, weinsheimer informed the committee together with the director of the education authority, barbara pflaum, about the current development.
