The volleys are not rewarded for their good play

The volleys are not rewarded for their good play

TG russelsheim II – hammelburg volleys 3:0 (26:24, 29:27, 25:19). "I have one laughing eye and one crying eye. Twice we were very close to winning the set, but unfortunately did not reward ourselves. With us, sometimes youthful recklessness is still at play, while russelsheim, with its experienced players like anton borger and philipp schumann, has simply remained patient", hammelburg’s head coach karl kaden summed it up.

Four home victories in four games, most recently over defending champions grafing and runners-up schwaig: the hesse team’s favoritism was more than clear in the game against the hammelburg volleys, who were unable to follow up their important win against gotha and were beaten by both mainz (0:3) and grafing (1:3). The role of the underdog seemed to be tailor-made for the people of lower franconia. In keeping with the script, the hosts started with a 5:0 lead. But eventually the boys from the saale took a liking to putting their own spin on the obvious story of the game. At 8:7, contact was made with the opponent, who from then on could no longer be sure of his cause. With the score at 20:19, the match entered the decisive phase of the opening set, which could have finally tipped in favor of the guests at 24:24, before the first league reserve of the united volleys frankfurt was able to confirm the trend of the youngest players.

But the hammelburgers’ ambition was now aroused, their confidence in their own strengths in mind and body was present. Early in the set, the team took its first lead ever (2-1), setting the stage for an extremely exciting match. At the second technical timeout, the volleys were leading 19:16, which the hessians had corrected at 21:21. Again it went into extension at 24:24, including a hammelburg set point at 27:26 – it was to be the last point for the volleys in the second set. A controversial decision by the referee was more than annoying, as the score was not 23:20 but 22:21 for hammelburg. "But that was not the decisive point, because we still had our chances afterwards", says kaden.

Finance committee approves controversial separation banking law

Finance committee approves controversial separation banking law

Despite fierce opposition, larger institutions have to prepare for the separation of certain high-risk trading activities from traditional banking business. In berlin, the finance committee of the bundestag approved a law for a separate banking system to shield against risks.

Under the plans, bank and insurance company boards of directors will in future also be liable for fines if they violate an order of the banking supervisory authority. Finally, financial institutions must draw up their own recovery and resolution plans, known as bank wills. The bundestag is expected to make a final decision on the package of laws this friday.

In recent weeks, the banking industry has raised an uproar against the plans. The spin-off of risky business from customer deposits into separate trading companies is associated with very high effort and immense costs, it was criticized. This has also had a negative impact on the "real economy".

The spab comes first

The spab comes first

Before the final, the players from FSG wiesentheid and vfl kleinlangheim were allowed to run onto the field together with their trainers and coaches in the sickergrundhalle to the applause of the spectators. They were introduced individually by hall announcer vincent held.
"During the tournament we thought that there were several teams that could win the tournament, but in the end the best team won", organizer horst held, youth director at SSV kitzingen, assessed the result. With 4:0 the wiesentheider finally prevailed in the tournament, which, surprisingly, took place without any teams from kitzingen from the semi-finals onwards.
For more than 20 years now, the siedler have been organizing the indoor kick for the U11 juniors. District championships organized by the association as well as the corresponding preliminary tournaments, on the other hand, only take place from the U13 level upwards. "The scheduling freedom we enjoyed in the early days is no longer there today.", reports held. "We try to avoid the tournaments of the other county clubs as much as possible, because we don’t want to interfere with them. In addition, we can only use the hall when there is no handball."
The siedler would also have liked to offer a "budenzauber" in several parts for the younger age groups, but the possibilities in the sickergrundhalle are limited: "the clubs that organize something like this have completely different possibilities than we do, because, for example, they can set up a gang for two weeks. Unfortunately this is not possible here." In the past, the organizers had a full weekend at their disposal, but due to the increased workload, this is now hardly possible. Held "would like to have the hall available for one or two weeks after the tournaments in dettelbach, wiesentheid and iphofen in the third or fourth week of january." But the SSV has had to take a back seat when it comes to booking the halls, although held appreciates the coordination with other users: "fortunately, werner may from TV etwashausen, for example, works very well with us on the dates."
However, he asks for understanding that not all overlapping dates can be prevented. Most of the U11 teams that played on sunday at the sickergrund have been taking part for many years, says held.
The work involved in the run-up to the event is manageable for him and his club colleagues: "in the e-mail age, even sending out invitations has become easier. But it can happen that only six clubs respond to 20 invitations because the rest have already scheduled other tournaments."
The fact that the tournament will take players, coaches and accompanying families only half a day, and that the competition for U13 juniors will not be held on the same day, but on the 12th day of the tournament. Held takes a positive view of the new event, which will take place in february: "both options certainly have their advantages and disadvantages. We don’t spend a whole day on this, we just have to do it twice. It’s better for the teams in that they don’t have to get in the car at seven in the morning."
So the ball did not roll until eleven o’clock. Because the tournament was held on a sunday, the response of the teams and the attendance of the spectators were accordingly pleasing. "As an organizer, you notice the difference between saturday and sunday, because on sundays a few more people come to watch in the hall."
Especially for the younger teams, for whom indoor soccer still enjoys a higher status, held considers it important that indoor tournaments are offered over a longer period of time in winter. "In the younger years, the winter break consists not only of the first two weeks of january, but there it stretches until the middle of march or sometimes even the beginning of april. In this respect, it is good when tournaments for the little ones take place at the end of january or the beginning of february", he says.
However, he does not fear that the higher the number of tournaments, the lower the number of participants: "especially at this age, it’s all about the fun of the game. The enthusiasm of the kids is unbroken." Sven weichsel said the same about his team: "a tournament like this is a lot of fun for our boys", said albertshofen’s U11 coach after winning the game for ninth place. He was quite satisfied with this result "after we had no indoor training this winter due to the rebuilding of the hall."
The sporting success was also for haci saygili only in second place: "in the foreground is that our children have spab, only then is it about winning." He observed before and during the tournament that his players were fully committed to the task at hand: "the tension at the beginning is rough, which teams are going to be there. In every game, the boys calculated the table, whether we are first, second or fourth, if the other teams now win or lose."

Addiction prevention at habfurt’s heinrich-thein vocational school: addicts are “simply human

Addiction prevention at habfurt's heinrich-thein vocational school: addicts are 'simply human

Addiction prevention is given a high profile at the heinrich-thein vocational school. Because of this gross commitment and because the currently running touring exhibition “einfach menschlich is so special, the bavarian health minister melanie huml (CSU) took over the patronage and thus the official opening on thursday morning.

District administrator wilhelm schneider (CSU) toured the "exhibition" before the official date, the exhibition is more of an adventure trail – and was deeply impressed "because you inevitably think about it and find yourself or people you know and their behavior again", he explained.

Addiction begins in everyday life

Principal heidrun gortler noted that addiction usually begins in everyday situations. The list of addictive behaviors is long, the exhibit shows. But it also shows where the foundations are laid. For gortler, it is part of the educational mission and quality understanding of the vocational school to give students the opportunity to deal with these issues.

Kollegah rejects anti-semitism accusations again

Kollegah rejects anti-Semitism accusations again

Controversial rapper kollegah (35) has once again strongly denied accusations of anti-semitism against him. "I have nothing to do with anti-semitism, i distance myself from it," he said at an appearance in leipzig on thursday evening, according to his management.

"One of my best friends is jewish." The "accusation of misogyny, homophobia, anti-semitism’ and hasn’t seen it all" that keeps hitting him is false, he said on stage, according to videos sent out by his management.

Earlier, bavaria’s anti-semitism commissioner ludwig spaenle (CSU) had criticized a planned concert by kollegah in munich. From his point of view, kollegah has never sufficiently distanced himself from accusations of anti-semitism. "He sends signals," spaenle said. "One could call this mental arson."

Lone fighter wants teamwork

Lone fighter wants teamwork

Karl-heinz hofmann

The BLSV-kreisverband kronach has a new chairman. At the district convention, mario schmid from wallenfels was recently elected district chairman. The 46-year-old thus succeeded karl H. Fick, who was active for almost 40 years in the leadership of the BLSV sports district of kronach and led it for 25 years.
The leadership of the district association with its 27620 members in 141 clubs is a responsible office with many tasks and challenges. "After years of sluggishness and dwindling membership numbers, i want to give the sport a new impetus or two to make it more palatable again to the young people of the digital ara.", describes mario schmid the main focus of his task.
In the apartment of the new district chairman, certificates, medals and trophies immediately catch the eye. "This is not all for a long time; I can no longer accommodate all the awards in an orderly fashion", he says with a smile. Many certificates therefore end up stacked in cabinets.
Mario schmid, who was born in steinwiesen and has lived in wallenfels since 1993, has been an athletic person from childhood onwards. It all started with mother/child gymnastics at the SV, to which he is still loyal. Then he played fubball in the D-jugend. When it came to the foundation of an athletics department, that was his thing right away. Especially the throwing disciplines (javelin, discus, hammer, ball) appealed to him. But when it came to training, he also reached the limits of what he could do. That's why he joined the independent athletic club (UAC) kulmbach, where he found optimal training conditions at the kulmbach-stadtsteinach throwing center. Here he was able to build on his strengths in the throwing funfkampf (with weight throw).

Successful track and field athlete

He participated in numerous national and international competitions with success. In 2010 he won the third place in the weight throw at the european championships. In all throwing disciplines he established himself among the best eight in europe. The 2012 world indoor athletics championships with winter throwing in finland was another sporting highlight for the wallenfelser. Here he lay in the ball bustle (8.) and in the discus throw (5.) again among the top 10 in the world. Further participations in the world championships and european championships followed with good results.
He regularly participates in german and bavarian championships. Only this year he became bavarian runner-up in the throwing funfight and at the "oberfrankische" three times champion (shot put, discus, javelin).
Mario schmid is not only involved in sports, but also volunteers as a deputy church administrator. "I will probably have to tread more lightly with this", in view of the tasks ahead of him as BLSV district chairman, he reveals. He approaches this office with ambition and motivation and wants to make a difference in the sports district. This is easier in certain positions than with ordinary members. One is closer to decision makers, he said.
Professionally and athletically, he sees good prerequisites for asserting himself in some things, even in a hard-nosed way, says the former sergeant major in the german army
he has been working in law enforcement since 2001. In his sporting disciplines, he is an individual fighter, but as BLSV district chairman he is aware that he will be relying on teamwork. "Only in cooperation with the district executive committee and the associations can we make a difference", is confident.

Ebersdorf pastor preaches a farewell sermon in the household chute

Last sunday, mierdel was bidden farewell with a coarse and colorful festive service in the grobgarnstadt church. The church congregation gave its beloved pastor a very personal and loving send-off.

Peter mierdel was involved in his last place of work for almost a quarter of a century – exactly 24 years and 11 months. The clergyman immediately took the reading from the gospel of luke as the text for the sermon. It is about the invitation of an important person to a rough dinner. However, none of the invited guests wanted to or could attend, everyone had their reasons and excuses. Then the host invited all the fringe groups of society to his banquet.

Sermon in the budget chute

Mierdel entered the saulenkanzel in a household shurze and referred to the fact that he is often "the ott" as a head servant in the service of his master. In his sermon, he explained that god likes to help people in all situations in life. Moreover, through jesus christ there is always forgiveness and the possibility of a new beginning with god.
