A lot of interesting information on a tour around the town hall

A lot of interesting information on a tour around the town hall

On thursday evening, a small group of interested people gathered to meet in the row "oh! How already is munnerstadt" on a tour of discovery "around the munnerstadt town hall to give. Franz gock, who as a long-time city leader has some experience in this field, succeeded in bringing the history of munich to life through the town hall in an exciting way. Thereby came both the "rough" the participants were also interested in the historical topics, such as the foundation of the city by the hennebergs, the reformation and counter-reformation, or the 30-year war, as well as the nice anecdotes from the history of the city. Several of those present could still remember the public scales that used to be installed in front of the town hall, and even the oxen that were tied there until a few decades ago.

A barracks from switzerland

In addition to the town hall itself, the historic buildings around it were also discussed. A surprising realization for most of the participants was that "switzerland the so-called "marienanstalt" got its name from the fact that a swiss barracks once processed the milk collected in this stately courtyard. The so-called marienanstalt, on the other hand, was built in 1578 by the then mayor andreas oesterreicher, who, however, as a protestant, left the town soon after. Both buildings were considered by all present to be decorative pieces of the old town, and it is to be hoped that their renovation will soon be tackled in order to preserve them. Because there are already enough losses of historical buildings, such as the former inn "zum goldenen lowen", which was an imposing half-timbered building. Franz gock remembered that there was already a television there in 1958, on which he watched the soccer world cup in brazil when he was still at school.

But around 1960, the building was demolished and replaced by a new building, which is hardly comprehensible from today’s point of view. Also the war memorial for the "heroes" of the german-french war of 1870, which was still standing at the town hall until the 1970s, was cleared away and is today scattered in fragments in various places. None of those present could say why it was removed from its original place. Whether it was perhaps no longer appropriate to celebrate the victory over france when the twinning agreement with stenay was signed in 1979?

Transporting the Christmas tree correctly

With the upcoming festive season, the purchase of a christmas tree is again on the agenda. Again and again, police officers notice that the fir trees are driven home in an adventurous way in the car. The tree sticks out of the sunroof or looks out of the side of the passenger window. Thus the hobby transporters endanger themselves and others, it is said in the message from the district office.

To avoid fines and warnings, the police inspection bamberg-land advises not to drive around with unsecured loads. Because: if an accident happens, the insurance company can demand reimbursement because of negligent behavior.

Do not obstruct the view

The district office points out that the tree in the car may not block the view. The view into the mirrors must be free. If the tree is transported on the roof, it must be lashed down tightly. License plates, headlights, turn signals and rear lights must not be obscured by the tree poles. If it protrudes more than one meter over the rear of the wagon, a red warning flag or a sign swinging across the direction of travel must be placed at the end of the trunk.

Milk quota gone, price in the cellar

Milk quota gone, price in the cellar

"We work with live animals, we can't go on strike and send them to another factory like workers", says jorg porisch as one of his 80 cows walks to the milking robot. This is where the precious milk that is part of healthy fruit is obtained. That's what the advertising says. But it is also false advertising that is pushing the price of milk down, to the detriment of the few dairy farmers, especially since the milk quota fell to 31. Marz.

The price has already plummeted from 40 cents to the current 29 cents per liter. "The price has never dropped so dramatically", remembers the farmer from egloffsteinerhull. He does not want to complain. In his profession there are no certainties, you always have to reckon with fluctuations in price. He doesn't know what he will receive in his account four weeks later for the milk he delivers this month. But he believes that consumers are being told that too much milk is being produced since the milk quota was dropped. And the more goods are available, the less they are worth.

Rather the opposite is the case. "In reality, the average production was two percent lower", says the farmer.
