In court: “cat food” as code word for drug orders

"Cat food" as a code word for ordering narcotics: that was for the presiding judge of the 8. Gross criminal division of the wurzburg regional court, konrad dopfner despite many years of professional experience with drug trafficking just as new as for the criminal defense lawyer klaus spiegel and other trial participants. While monitoring the telephone of a 51-year-old woman from kitzingen, who had not been convicted of hard-earned income, the police came across this code word.

From her apartment, the woman is said to have operated a heavy trade in marijuana last year, first together with her former companion and later alone, after he had been arrested. When searching their apartment, the police found 116 grams of marijuana, 3000 euros in seem, near the drugs a switchblade knife and a loaded pistol of terror.

Grune Woche kicks off: focus on animal welfare and digitization

More animal welfare in the barn, more clarity about sugar, fat and salt in finished products for a healthier diet: at the start of green week in berlin, growing expectations are being voiced to food producers.

Federal agriculture minister julia klockner (CDU) called for a dialogue with consumers that should not be reflexively resisted by agriculture. But farmers shouldn’t be portrayed as the nation’s bogeyman either. The trade show, which opens its doors to visitors this friday, will feature exhibitors from all over the world until 27 september.

From now on the road is free

The HAS26 circular road, which then becomes SW 52 after fabrikschleichach, is the only east-west link from the main valley to the valley of the rough ebrach river. After three months of construction work, the second section of the new road between fabrikschleichach and hundelshausen has now been reopened to traffic.
District administrator wilhelm schneider was pleased with the successful project, which was completed on schedule and within budget. Already in 2017, two kilometers directly from the county line toward fabrikschleichach were rebuilt.
The planning of the 1.2 kilometers that have now been implemented was more difficult because there are numerous culverts here that, like the roadway, were quite dilapidated and had to be renewed. In addition, the adjacent nature conservation ponds had to be taken into consideration. There was also a long discussion about whether to install amphibian tunnels, "but the cost of 450,000 euros was unacceptably high, said the district administrator. The county's own contribution had almost doubled.
The road was upgraded very sensitively. It now has fewer dips and curves, but it is not a racetrack either. Due to the low volume of heavy traffic, the original construction width of 5.50 meters was maintained, and thus further flat sealing could be avoided. The drainage systems were also reworked; the surface water is now infiltrated in separate areas.
On 2. Construction work had begun on may 1, and the thanks of the district administrator went to the company stolz, which had delivered excellent work without delays, to the technical office werner from eltmann, and to the district's civil engineering department. The costs for the track amounted to 643,000 euros. Thanks to a generous request for funds, the county is contributing 183,000 euros from its own resources. Wilhelm schneider also thanked the people, who had to put up with detours and construction traffic for three months, and the landowners who made land available for the project.
Rauhenebrach mayor matthias bauerlein stressed that a good road network is one of the most important infrastructure facilities for a community like rauhenebrach with many commuters. With the district road in the direction of zabelstein, the upcoming construction of the state road between prolsdorf and oberaurach and the cycle path from falsbrunn to prolsdorf, work is continuously being done on this network. One could be satisfied.

Profiting from the demand for money

for the support from the state building office, the district administrator had thanked senior building official manfred rott. He did, however, offer a compliment: in the past few years, the district of habberge has taken advantage of the good conditions like hardly any other district and has rehabilitated many more kilometers of roads with the same own funds than originally planned. This is also thanks to the very flexible and efficient department of alfons schanz. HAS 26 is now in pristine condition, he says. The district of schweinfurt has also taken action in its area and has carried out a surface treatment, so that this important connection is now "rusted again for many years".
Rott also emphasized the importance of the road network for the rural infrastructure. "Whether county, state or federal – you don't realize the significance of some strab until there's a detour", he explained, before everyone cut the symbolic ribbon together and polier martin beck then removed the red crosses from the signposts in fabrikschleichach and hundelshausen.

Community of rugendorf drops stately birch tree

The oak processionary moth is to be dealt with throughout rugendorf. This was decided by the municipal council on monday evening. The oak tree on the village square in zettlitz is the first to be affected. Three nests were found on it, which must be removed.

At the suggestion of johannes heyl, however, the building yard is now to inspect all oak trees on public land in the municipal area for infestation and, if necessary, treat them.

Rating giant moody’s takes aim at german banks

Rating giant moody's takes aim at german banks

Moody’s lowered its outlook for 17 institutions from "stable" to "negative" late wednesday evening – a logical consequence of the worsening outlook for the federal government and six german states.

The decision may be a first step to a credit downgrade. A lower rating can make it harder and more expensive to raise fresh money. Lenders face higher likelihood of losing money.
