Courage and mercy captured in tone

Courage and mercy captured in tone

With the missa criolla by ariel ramirez, the paul-eber-kantorei under the direction of deanery cantor martin blaufelder will perform the mass on sunday, 19. May, at 7 p.M. A special work will be performed in the protestant town church of kitzingen, according to the press release.

Ramirez composed the mass in 1963 and 1964. His first inspiration for writing a religious work came in the 1950s, when he was an unknown musician living in a monastery in wurzburg, germany. There he met the sisters elisabeth and regina bruckner, who told him that a manor house in front of the monastery had been a concentration camp during national socialism – only a few years earlier – and that they brought food to the prisoners night after night, even though it was punishable by death.

The courage and mercy of the two sisters moved ramirez deeply and so he dedicated the mass to them, according to a press release. The misa criolla is considered ramirez’s best-known composition and, because of its fame, is considered the most important work of argentine sacred music far beyond the borders of sudamerica.

Guardiola 'heib' on mourinho - supercup still missing for fcb

Reunion brings joy – or not. Pep guardiola had hardly chosen his intimate enemy jose mourinho as an opponent for his first game with FC bayern in the european spotlight.

But the supercup final between champions league winners and european league champions chelsea FC on friday will not only be explosive on the pitch, but also on the sidelines. "It’s about prestige. Our coach will be quite heib," explained president uli hoeneb on the trip to sunny prague.

The trickiest personnel decision guardiola wants to make only on match day. "Bastian is doing better. I hope he can play. He’s an important player for us," the coach said of midfielder schweinsteiger, who injured his right foot in a 1-1 bundesliga draw against SC freiburg. The 29-year-old took part in final training at eden stadium. Philipp lahm would probably be the first alternative in the position in front of the defense. "I have no problem playing in midfield," he said.

A taste of school

Within the framework of "school – kindergarten cooperation have already been meeting for approx. Ten years ago, the preschool children from the action kindergarten in ebenhausen worked with the first-grade students from the ebenhausen elementary school. The aim is to take what is already familiar from kindergarten life and apply it to the school in order to make the transition to school easier for the children.
In addition, the preschool children already get to know some of the routines of everyday school life, explore the school building, listen to how the first-graders learn to read before christmas, or experience a school break with them. It is a highlight for the preschool children every time the first-class teachers come to the kindergarten. Together they watch the puppet stage or experience a carnival party with many colorful workshops. The youngest activity was a hiking day with the first grade class. The program included fubball games, rope swinging/jumping, eating ice cream and lots of fun on the sports field and playground.
Marianne wunderwald, teacher, and daniela koch, director, and astrid mubmacher, kindergarten nursery nurse, think this was a great event, and they definitely want to repeat it in the next kindergarten/school year.

Colorful song potpourri

A colorful potpourri of songs in a flute choir, cleverly accompanied by percussion instruments, offered a joyful start. Soloists this evening were christopher ott with a secure and mature tone on the trumpet, as well as lilly hourle, eliciting warm tones from the cello, on the stage. They mastered their pieces with bravura.

Many of the songs of the evening were about love, including the well-known title "rolling in the deep" the british singer adele. Annemarie gutilla and franziska pohnl interpreted this with mature voices, accompanied by jennifer nguyen on the cajon.

The french language blended beautifully with the touching melodies. The french teachers ms. Behr and ms. Schwarz supported music teacher josef pensler and the students of choir class 6c in learning the correct pronunciation – after all, french is only taught at the secondary school from the 7th grade onwards. Year 1 students taught.

Schones from ashes

"Food that is fresh on the plate and doesn’t sit around for long is also the healthiest, he says.
Healthy nutrition is also the focus of the school’s collaboration with the center of competence for nutrition (kern). Soon, the first activities will be launched that will not only benefit the 30 to 60 students that herbert bulheller cooks for every day.
"For example, we want to put on plays on the subject of nutrition – the bushwhackers have already worked something out – or work together on a cookbook that also includes dishes from other cultures," he says, says thomas schmidt, who supervises the project for kern.
An organic breakfast could also be offered as part of the project. The goal is to raise awareness of healthy eating at school and among parents. Kern especially wants to draw attention to the regionality or the ecological footprint of food production.
But the competence center also hopes to gain new insights from the model project. It wants to advertise a master’s thesis at the universities, which will accompany the project at the school. This will also analyze the dishes prepared by school chef herbert bulheller, which he adapts to the specifications of the school’s own nutrition advisor.
Herbert bulheller provides the healthy meals especially for the schoolchildren who attend the all-day classes. Next year there will be even more who will enjoy the school cook’s lunch menus, because a new all-day class will be added.
"The bound all-day class has to eat here, so it’s all the more important that it’s healthy", says MGFG director hans-werner fischer. He hopes that the project will make it clear to the children that healthy food is also important for their well-being at school.
But the schoolchildren themselves have already started thinking about healthy food at school. For example the SMV. She has set up guidelines to avoid cola and coffee in particular. Coke is no longer available for purchase during recess, and coffee is served only to high school students.
But healthy food doesn’t always have to mean going without. At least that’s what the school cook says, smiling as he interjects: "I also have a healthy dessert in the school kitchen."

The “badekonig” retires

The

By our contributor anja greiner

Forchheim – robert pinzel's (60) career as a swimming instructor was never actually intended. And yet he has been in this profession for the last 37 years. Yesterday he was discharged from the service of the city of forchheim.
At the beginning of his professional life, pinzel's preferred element was not water, but metal. At siemens he trained as a mechanical engineer. Later in the army he worked as a helicopter mechanic. In 1975, he took a different path and passed his examinations as a swimming instructor. For pinzel from forchheim, the change was made for pragmatic reasons: "i was looking for a job close to home". At 21, pinzel was also the youngest swimming champion in germany.
Above all, the "dealings with different people" was what made the job so interesting for the 60-year-old. It goes without saying that some of the encounters were not always pleasant. "Especially with young people, you have to lift your finger sometimes", tells pinzel.
Mayor franz stumpf (CSU/WUO) and head of the pool walter mirschberger praised above all pinzel's integrity. When the decision was made to merge the two pools, criticism arose and "the swimming supervisor also had to take a beating," said the 21-year-old auben, reminds stumpf. Pinzel has always stood by his word "even in the face of headwinds", emphasizes OB franz stumpf. For walter mirschberger, robert pinzel was an important support, above all "because of his professionalism in the planning and implementation of the new swimming pool.
Pinzel is retiring in september and is looking forward to "doing everything without time pressure" together with his wife.

Maximilian schick went home with a cock

To the sound of the kirchweihaus the 20. Cock flapping organized by stefan groh, florian walther and patrick endres.

Under the lime trees in the center of the village maximilian schick from ebensfeld received the cock as first prize. Tobias bayer from unterleiterbach (ten-liter keg of beer) and jeremy ross from unterleiterbach (five-liter keg of beer) were successful as well. The proceeds go to a charitable cause.

The cock-beating is an old church tradition that was already practiced in unterleiterbach at the beginning of the last century, but has only been revived in recent years. The rooster was once considered a symbol of the evil spirit of the harvest, which took refuge in the last sheaf of the harvest. This spirit had to be destroyed by head.

Fiber optics to the school

At the most recent meeting of the hebdorf municipal council, mayor horst rehder (BB) informed the council that, according to the construction management, the remaining work on construction phase I (old building) of the general renovation of the elementary school in hannberg will be completed by the end of the fall vacations. In the next few days, work will also resume on the roofs, and work on the west facade in the area of the transition between the old building and the honeycomb building will be completed.

There are still some problems with the playground, but the temporary and secured playground will be available until the middle of december. In order to satisfy the schoolchildren's need for exercise during the breaks, the school administration is using a variety of equipment, and when the school gymnasium is completed, it will be incorporated into the break area.

Since the state of bavaria currently requires 80 percent of the costs of fiber-optic connections for school buildings in accordance with the so-called WLAN directive, the application and award procedure was initiated by a specialist office. In principle, a gigabit-capable and continuous fiber-optic line to the building was required for the connection of the elementary school in hannberg. In the event that all bids exceed the 50000 euro threshold, a proviso was included in the invitation to tender with the possibility of cancelling the award procedure.
