A year ago, the hope of an end to the thorny sleep at the former children's health resort st. Joseph grob. Now it is clear: nothing will come of the plans.The former children's spa st. Josef am stationsberg has been in agony for some years now. After the mariannhill sisters sold the property in 2008, there had already been some talk of turning the estate into something else. However, nothing has actually happened. The last known attempt to date has also failed. In october 2016, the city's building committee approved a preliminary building application from IVG service gmbh from north rhine-westphalia, subject to certain conditions. According to their own statements, they planned to build "upscale apartments" in the property to create. The concept is that several generations live there under one roof, it continued to shout at the time. But nothing came of it. Even the city's building department recently responded to a question from the city council, saying that there were no plans for st. Josef since then no new state of affairs. And the IVG service gmbh explained on wednesday on inquiry, from the project has become nothing. The seller had withdrawn from the purchase contract. And so the once vibrant facility continues to present a dismal picture. Graffiti, gauze and broken glass, in short, the consequences of repeated vandalism, have left a heavy mark on the children's spa home.
The ink under the contract is still fresh, so to speak. On thursday, 31. January, gert frank, managing director of limes schlossklinik furstenhof gmbh, and spa director andrea schallenkammer signed long-term contracts. Their content: the furstenhof and the castle hotel are being converted into a luxury clinic.
The limes schlossklinik furstenhof gmbh, founded for bad bruckenau, is part of the limes schlosskliniken ag, a group of clinics specializing in stress-related illnesses. The clinic at the state baths is scheduled to open in 2020; this year the buildings will be renovated. Among other things, the windows will be replaced and the fire protection modernized. At the same time, the clinic operator plans to invest in the interior equipment in order to realize the desired funf-sterne standard.
80 employees, including 45 to 50 medical staff and 30 to 35 hotel specialists, will look after up to 55 patients in the future, explains the managing director. The medical focus is on the treatment of illnesses triggered by stress. These include depression, insomnia and obsessive-compulsive disorders, but also migrane and tinitus complaints. Addictive diseases, on the other hand, are not treated.
she wants to encourage the people in the country. Citizens should have a say and raise their voices. "They are all more powerful than they think", said bundestag member manuela rottmann (bundnis 90/die grunen) at a discussion evening on thursday at the goller guesthouse in zeil.
Almost 30 participants came to talk to the 45-year-old from hammelburg, who was elected to the bundestag for the first time in september. Many federal policy issues were addressed; the focus was on social policy, climate protection and immigration.
Manuela rottmann listened to the opinions, suggestions, concerns and criticism of the citizens and promised to reflect on their views and incorporate them into the political discussion in berlin. "I take that with me", she assured.
Germany as a role model?
Rainer baumgartner, who sits for the odp in the habberge district council, worries that those in power are losing sight of climate protection. And this in a country like germany, which should be setting an example thanks to its economic strength. If germany is not serious about climate protection, who is??, he asked.
Manuela rottmann shares baumgartner’s opinion. And she is at a bit of a loss. "I don’t understand", the jurist confessed why the topic of climate protection did not reach the union and the SPD. She says that this may be because there are no longer any environmental politicians in these two parties as there used to be. There was simply a lack of contact persons, she explained.
At the lower level, on the other hand, things work better when it comes to environmental issues, said rottmann. As an example, she cited the state of hesse and the city of frankfurt am main, where she was once head of the department for environment and health. Union and green politicians could talk to each other here.

"This concept is not rigid, but is intended to be a working guide for the city council", she stressed. "It contains long-term oriented and integrated development and action guidelines to secure and strengthen the quality of life and attractiveness of the city." the motto "mainstream" had been used as an umbrella term chosen because habfurt was situated on the main and could therefore score points and because the city was in the "river" respectively on the way.
The topic "city on the main" is at the top of the list of guidelines, because the redevelopment of the riverbank areas and adjacent city quarters offers great potential for attractive residential locations and tourism development, said the expert. Other priorities included securing and developing the supply and retail trade in the city center, optimizing traffic in the city center, restructuring the city’s neighborhoods, expanding attractive forms of housing as well as supply and care services, securing jobs and expanding tourism.

The cards of the german "influenza working group show it clearly: the flu wave is rolling over the country. "In the meantime, a strikingly large number of reports of illnesses have come from the district of bamberg.", says dr. Ulrich mauser.
The medical officer based in the district administration office, together with his colleagues in the health department, is closely following the development of the number of flu cases in the coburg region these days – slowly, but noticeably increasing. In an interview, the physician explains what you can do to protect yourself from the flu.
How can I make sure I don’t catch the flu??
Dr. Ulrich mauser: if you want to do everything you can to protect yourself from the flu, there’s no way around a vaccination. But the most important hygiene measures are also a contribution to reducing the risk of infection that should not be underestimated.
What are the medical options when I have the flu??
As a general rule, prevention is better than treatment! Since influenza is a viral disease, antibiotics are ineffective. They are only used if additional bacterial illnesses occur as complications. In individual cases and according to a doctor’s prescription, special drugs, so-called antivirals, can also be used directly against the flu virus – especially if a severe course of the disease is imminent.
