Jens korn: “we must not throw sand in the eyes of the burghers”

Jens korn: 'we must not throw sand in the eyes of the burghers'

The picture on the wall behind the mayor’s desk was chosen with care by jens korn. A float hangs with all its body weight on the bar of its float hook. The scene is intended as a reminder that "I have to put my heart and soul into my office", says korn. For the past year, the 42-year-old has been mayor of wallenfels. He spoke to frankischer tag about demographic change, family lunches and what you can learn from markus soder.

The picture behind the desk is one of three rough-format photographs from the 1930s that the new mayor has hung in his office. All show scenes of wallenfels floats on the main near wurzburg. The one where a whole squad struggles to keep a plane on course calls for teamwork: "even a mayor can’t do anything on his own." The last one shows flober balancing on tree trunks that clearly divide the image diagonally. Having just as clearly structured content should be good for a mayor, too, says korn.

Mr. Korn, until a year ago you wanted to be mayor. Can you still understand that?
Jens korn: more than ever before. I enjoy this task very much.

Habfurt children play with gravity

Habfurt children play with gravity

The idea of the miniphanomenta goes back to the work of professor dr. Lutz fiesser back. He is considered to be the founder of the first german science center, the phanomenta in flensburg. Fiesser has been involved in teacher training for decades, asking how adults can create the right environment for elementary science experiences in school and the classroom.

Many things are self-evident

one of his answers to this is the concept of the miniphanomenta. It consists mainly of freely accessible experiment stations at which children can experience scientific and technical phenomena and then work together to clarify them. This challenges the ability to research and the joy of recognizing one's own.

“We think quite pragmatically”

Layout, variety of information, communication possibilities and information value: these are the categories in the website test and it is exactly these areas that the middle school kirchehrenbach wants to cover adequately with its homepage. "We think quite pragmatically", explain the rectors gunter hoch and hermann ulm. The school wanted to present itself to the public and give visitors the information they were looking for.
The organization of the website is in the hands of the directorate. "It can’t be done any other way, even with today’s data protection regulations", the school directors describe. The school is careful with pictures and personal data, the consent of individual students was checked by a general inquiry as in most schools. The content for the website mostly comes from teachers. "This was also the case a few years ago, when a school group was in charge of the website, says hoch. After a few years of losing sight of the website, the school decided at the beginning of this year to redesign the site and update its content.
It has also hired a company to do this, and works hand in hand with them. The goal of the website is clearly defined: a presentation of current data, important documents in the download area and a comprehensive range of information for schools, teachers, parents and also possible new teachers.
Basically for everyone who wants to get information about the kirchehrenbacher middle school for whatever reason.

Children help children in need

Children help children in need

Giving christmas joy to children who are not doing so well is the mission of the students at hermann grosch elementary school in weitramsdorf, germany. They took part in the christmas package convoy of the service clubs round table, ladies’ circle and others. Tina goller-kronawitter from ladies’ circle 38 coburg, buried by principal beate deuerling, was able to pick up lovingly prepared packages in weitramsdorf to take them to the collection point in coburg, from where they will be taken in convoy to eastern europe.

Taking responsibility

Kindergarten and school children in germany, with the support of their parents, pack used or new toys, clothes, painting materials and much more into a box, wrap it festively and have it picked up at kindergarten and schools.
In this way, children learn that not all the children of the world are well off and that they can help by doing a little bit, that each of us can and should take responsibility. At the same time, the children who receive the gifts experience great joy in the midst of poverty and desolation.
Ladies and tablers pack the goods and organize a complete convoy and set off on the journey to romania, ukraine and moldova. There, the christmas presents are distributed by the helpers directly to the poorest of the poor: children in homes, children in remote villages and schools, children from mountainous regions.
The aim of the campaign is to bring special christmas joy to thousands of impoverished and needy children and to show them that they are not forgotten. That is why the christmas packages are a special human gesture that conveys love and hope to the children who receive them.
The special thing about this is that "ladies and "tabler" are actively involved with their own hands on work and sometimes high personal commitment – from collecting to sorting and loading to transporting and distributing everything is done personally and voluntarily.

Traffic inspection keeps the community busy

Traffic inspection keeps the community busy

The traffic inspection carried out on two days in september in all parts of the community by representatives of the coburg police department, the district office and the community was extensive. Their findings were explained by mayor karl kolb to the municipal council at its meeting on thursday.

One problem is that there are no designated parking spaces at the multigenerational playground in lauterstrabe. The result: many people simply park on the street – despite the no-stopping sign. There are complaints about this from residents and playground visitors. Resident and showman ralf pazdera has problems entering and leaving the area with long semitrailers. The authorities recommend that the existing signage should not be changed. The no-stopping signs made it clear where parking is prohibited. In the event of a death, the police should be informed, it was said at the traffic inspection.

No change in traffic flow at the "stetsambach" traffic circle in unterlauter. The lamppost there as an attachment possibility for the mirror is only shortened. Reflective beads are to be installed at the traffic circle.

When the sand trickles while parking

When the sand trickles while parking

Fast shopping by car in volkach can be quite easy:

Switch off the engine, turn the hourglass and from now on you get 15 minutes of parking for free. The system is now half a year old and, according to tourism boss marco maiberger, it has held up. Of the 5000 hourglasses purchased, 1761 have been sold and are in use: "we are very satisfied with the number."

Volkach has the edge

Volkach has the lead in bavaria with clock turning. And for the fast shopper in town, too: the instrument for rushing to the bakery, butcher or pharmacy is starting to pay for itself, according to maiberger. The city, together with its partners from the volkacher mainschleife trade association and the tourist office, invested 8000 euros in the purchase and advertising of the watch, which has since fetched around 6500 euros in sales.
