The location of the campsite is certainly one of the most important factors in the selection process. Popular campsites offer the possibility of skiing, snowboarding, snowkiting or cross-country skiing. Wherever nature, winter sports and campsites meet, winter camping becomes an unforgettable experience. A rough overview of campsites can be found at the ADAC, in the following two campsites are presented in more detail.

More and more lonely people at risk of poverty

More and more people in germany live alone – and significantly more single people than before are at risk of poverty. Single people and single parents are also particularly often over-indebted.

At the same time, loneliness as a social problem is increasingly coming into focus: because, according to studies, lonely people have a higher risk of becoming ill and dying earlier.

Standige schwarzfahrten: intransigence leads to jail

It was one ride too many. A trip to prison. On that evening in march of this year, the 59-year-old woman was not surprised that she was already under double arrest for driving drunk and black over and over again. A police patrol caught the woman driving home on a moped with 1.1 blood alcohol level. An act that now finally brings the barrel to overflowing: the businesswoman now has to spend six months behind bars.

The verdict by criminal court judge and district court director helga muller is something like the final point of an ominous development that began a good four years ago. At that time, the life of the defendant took a fateful turn. She is the victim of a traffic accident. The health problems afterwards are enormous, the degree of the heavy handicap is with 70 per cent.

The laboratory exposes cheats

The latest scandal about falsely declared foodstuffs containing horse meat is also occupying the max rubner institute (MRI). The federal research institute investigates the safety and quality of meat at the kulmbach site. In principle, there's nothing wrong with eating horse meat, says institute director klaus troeger, but consumers must not be misled: "where it says beef on the label, it must not say horse on the inside."

As a consumer, can you tell the difference between horse meat and beef??
Klaus troeger: horse meat is similar to beef in composition and appearance, but there are some differences: it is redder, leaner and suber than beef.

Wayside shrine in reiterswiesen to be renovated in stone

On 15. June 1619 jorg borst was killed by "the fall of a tree". Today we know so much about the accident of the reiterswiesener, because his descendants relatively quickly to his memory a "marterl", that is, a wayside shrine, which still stands today on the kissinger strabe that runs through reiterswiesen. Although its location has been adapted to the course of the road over the years, it has actually always stood, and this for almost 400 years now, on the driveway to the castle ruins of botenlauben.

But also stones come to an age, in which nature can harm them more than a "young stone". Especially the red, french colored sandstone from the local area is very "weather-beaten", it should be lifted, it cracks easily. And when water penetrates and a cold winter comes along, whole parts of the stone can easily chip off.

People in our midst

Habberge district – at the start of the new year, habberge district administrator wilhelm schneider addresses the burghers. His personal assessment: "for me personally, the year 2014, with the election as district administrator of the district of habberge, was a very exciting year with many and good human encounters, new experiences and special challenges. My new task gives me a lot of pleasure." Committed people and families, home health and civic engagement, for which he is very grateful, schneider writes.
These active citizens "make our county more attractive and brighter. A good example are the many church, association and voluntary initiatives that are concerned about the care and integration of our asylum seekers and refugees. The accommodation of asylum seekers is a major challenge for the district office and our district administration. Our task is to help people arrive in our midst, so that we don’t just talk about them, but above all with them. "
For the district office, the district administrator describes, everyday counselors are active who have been able to converse with many asylum seekers in one of their languages and who help them to make first impressions in germany.
An important starting point in the district is to accommodate asylum seekers decentrally in smaller accommodations. Growing into the local structures is easier that way. "First examples prove that this way is right. It is very important to us that asylum seekers feel welcome in our county and can settle in well here. We want to help the refugees and should see the influx of these people, who have left their homeland due to war or persecution for political, religious and other reasons, not as a burden but as an opportunity."
Schneider sees the expansion of broadband supply, the further development of the opnv, the energy turnaround, the construction of the animal shelter, the renovation of the schools and the securing of the hospitals as challenges.
Schneider appeals: "we can only be successful if we pull together for our common goal: to shape our home so that it is an attractive place to live for young families, but also for our seniors, and so that we remain an important location for our companies and businesses."

"A cool place in warm weather", this is how the forderverein describes the open-air swimming pool in grafenberg. The fact that the number of visitors reached new dimensions this year was not only due to the weather. It is also thanks to the commitment of the forderverein that the pool was able to be reopened at all after the big bang in 2016. This, too, will be remembered at the weekend during the 80th anniversary of the grafenberg open-air pool. Because that, too, is part of the history of the open-air swimming pool, which began in 1937. It did not emerge from a pool of loo water, but was built as an open-air pool from the very beginning. It has 50 meter long lanes.

With sloping walls

The pool was built with sloping walls, as was customary at the time, in order to produce less excavated earth and save concrete. Where the parking lots are now, there was a pond in which the water was temporarily stored. It existed until the 60s. Then came the first hygiene regulations and the intermediate pond was abandoned. The construction of the open-air swimming pool, in which the people of grafenberg themselves lent a hand, began in the summer of 1937. Only one year later the open-air swimming pool was finished. The cost: 30,000 reichsmarks, as gerhard gundelfinger recorded in his local chronicle. And also the little story about the bath can be read there. For even though most of the people of grafenberg went to the open-air pool, they stayed in the non-swimmer’s pool. This was visually separated from the swimming pool by a wooden beam.

Police investigates after tiger drama in the Kolner zoo

According to the zoo, there was no danger to zoo visitors at any time, as the tiger had not been able to leave its indoor enclosure. The site of the accident was not visible to visitors. The police now want to clarify the exact course of the accident: they have initiated a death investigation, they announced.

The accident occurred on saturday afternoon during cleaning work. According to initial findings, the keeper probably forgot to lock up the male tiger, the zoo said. Presumably the tiger had attacked them from behind. After the deadly bite "altai" had let go of his victim. According to police, the animal attacked the keeper in a commercial building adjacent to the enclosure, which is inaccessible to visitors.
