Hufner secures fifth overall World Cup victory

At the world cup finals in paramonovo, about 80 kilometers from moscow, a second place on the day was enough for the 28-year-old to secure a permanent place in the luge history books: her overall victory number five put hufner on a par with former top luger silke kraushaar-pielach in the eternal best list.

In the doubles’ event, tobias wendl and tobias arlt missed their second overall world cup triumph by a hair’s breadth: the bavarian duo finished second behind the austrians peter penz/georg fischler. Only one day’s success was enough for the two, as the austrian world cup leaders andreas and wolfgang linger had made a big mistake and only finished sixth. But the germans missed their second overall victory after 2010/11. "At least we made it very exciting", wendl stated.

FC 06 bad kissingen – TSV-DJK wiesentheid 1:2 (0:2). Goals: 0:1, 0:2 lukas huscher (16., 30.), 1:2 fuaad kheder (79.). The curse of the 06-er in the sportpark continues, also the third home game of the season was lost. This was all the more annoying because the previously winless wiesentheider were limited in terms of play, but with his mainly wide shots from the defensive line, the FC defense repeatedly faced problems. The decisive factor in the failure of the hosts, who were coached by head of defense christian heilmann in the absence of coach mario wirth, who was on vacation, was the poor build-up to the game. In the FC midfield, christian laus worked hard but found little support from his team-mates, especially in the first half. The steigerwalder took the lead after a long shot by christian enzbrenner through their forward lukas huscher. In turn, laus prufte with a flat shot gaste-keeper jan molitor, but this remained the only noteworthy offensive action of the platzherren before the side change. The latter conceded the second goal after half an hour when they failed to stop a pass from martin seitz and huscher easily pushed the ball over the goal line. After the break, heilmann brought on two fresh attacking players in ervin gergely and fuaad kheder, but the next good opportunity came from thomas latteier’s side: after a cross from huscher, jonathan popp headed just over the crossbar. After huscher had missed another gross chance (66.), the guests were leveled with increasing playing time and were lucky that a header by ruslan zhyvka after a corner by kheder was set too high. Two minutes later, kheder scored the next goal when gergely headed the ball into the back of the gaste defense after a long pass from heilmann. But that was it with the splendor of the kurstadter, which continued through inexplicable errors in the game structure again and again brought the opponent in ball possession. The latter was only interested in securing the lead, which was also achieved with an aggressive two-fight hardness. Sbp bad kissingen: fl. Rottenberger – muller (72. L. Rottenberger), heilmann, greubel, gotz – L. Hufner (51. Gergely), laus, schmitt – zhyvka, puscas (51. Kheder), ruja.

SV riedenberg – FC thulba 1:1 (1:0). Goals: 1:0 patrick barthelmes (10., penalty), 1:1 lorenz heim (76.).

Luther and cranach in postcard format

"You've got mail" – in the early 1990s, the arrival of an electronic message was still worth a prosaic announcement. Since then, the english word has become more of a hip zeitgeist in german usage than it really deserves: after all, it refers to nothing other than the good old post office. In exactly this old-fashioned sense, ingo cesaro's analog, i.E. Physically present, mailbox has been filled with postcards from all over the world over the past few weeks. Watercolors, collages, drawings, etchings, portraits, alienated original motifs, typography – as colorful and diverse as the entries were, they all had one common thread: cranach and luther.

Original with postmark

This was the title of an international mail art project by the artist ingo cesaro from kronach. Anyone can participate in such a project, whether they are an artist, see themselves as such, or simply want to join in.

Art is distributed non-commercially in the network, bypassing the usual, often elitist distribution through dealers, galleries and museums.

Who owns the blue mercedes? The one that one of the accused is said to have financed by stolen goods? The car in which some of the accused were sitting when the police tracked them down?

In the end, only his family ties saved him.

The trial of the suspected burglary gang is slowly drawing to a close.

"I actually love riding the train", says sebastian kotschenreuther. It started at the station in kronach. A mistake. "My wife had to heave the little girl's baby carriage and my wheelchair up the stairs. I then tried somehow to get up with my crutches", says sebastian kotschenreuther. Neufanger can walk a few meters with his crutches. For longer distances he then needs the wheelchair.

"What's the point of the voucher from the pension office that allows me, as a wheelchair user, to ride regional trains and regional express trains for free if I can't get to the track??", the young father of a family has been asking himself for a long time.
