Barlo - a village in a state of emergency

A commentary by BERTHOLD BLESENKEMPERBringing sunshine over Barlo. Small white clouds run through the deep blue sky. A summer idyll, you should think. But the village in the north of Bocholt is in a state of emergency. A collective shock has hit the roughly 2000 people there. Reason: Pastor Theo Wehren, who died eight years ago and was idol-worshiped in his hometown, was a lawfully condemned child molester. And just at the grave there was now an anonymous letter with further allegations. Since then, hardly anything else has been discussed in Barlo. Theo Wehren (nickname: Kapi) was more than just a pastor. "For three decades as a pastor in Barlo, he has been a familiar and faithful companion to many people as a person and priest. In addition to his priestly ministry, he has also worked for many interests in the village of Barlo. Through his humane and cheerful nature as well as through his priestly ministry, he gave many people joy in life, strength and comfort from the faith, "it says in an 2011 online obituary published by the community of Liebfrauen. That's why they have named the big playground in the center of the village after "Kapi". And now that. Incredible, it is bad enough that the primitive trust that the Barloans gave their pastor was destroyed from one second to another. In addition doubts nourish the uncertainty. Did the neighbor, who worked for years in the parish council, really know nothing? And maybe there are also victims in the village? Questions about questions for which there are initially no answers. So much is certain: "Kapi" was without doubt perpetrators. He was sentenced by the Bocholt district court to a suspended sentence of one year for multiple sexual acts against minors in November 1976. Since it is no consolation that the previously known acts and also the allegations thereafter invariably related to Wehrens previous term in Selm / Recklinghausen. As a matter of law, priests are considered rehabilitated after expiry of their probation period. But for idols, the demands that have been made on themselves and their fellows are valid. And in doubt, they are much bigger. Correspondingly, the soul of the believer cooks. Deceived by "Kapi" and shamefully betrayed by the church, which has known and kept silent - that is the pastoral GAU. Not an easy task for incumbent Pastor Rafael von Straelen, when he will perform in front of the Barloer at a community meeting tonight. But who knows him, knows that he will be open, calm, prudent and clear. And that is exactly what the deeply wounded soul Barlos needs now. After that must be decidedly acted. Chronicles have to be rewritten, obituaries have to be deleted, the playground has to be renamed and the billboard at the kindergarten, which still refers to the anniversary of the "Kapi" playground, has to be changed or removed as soon as possible. This is the one guilty of the victims. The children suffering from the consequences of sexual abuse, but also the people in the village now need courage. That's why you can do it! [...]

Mayors' Conference promotes Campaign #WirfuerBio

Borken County .. The towns and communities in the district Borken support the new campaign of the waste management company Westmünsterland (EGW) and the district Borken "No plastic in the bio bin". This was confirmed by the mayors of the district municipalities on the occasion of their regular conference with the board of the district administration in Borkener Kreishaus. District Administrator Kai Zwicker expressly welcomed the agreed joint action: "I am very pleased that they all participated in the Germany-wide #WIRFUERBIO campaign." The goal is to work together to increase the purity of varieties in the organic waste bin. "The amount of organic and greenery collected Although absolute top and the specific residual waste through the consistent waste separation very low, "said EGW CEO Peter Kleyboldt. Nevertheless, his employees would find more and more often things in the bio bin that do not belong there, such as plastic bags. His assumption therefore: "20 years after the introduction of the bio bin obviously some consumers have become more negligent with the filling of the bio bin." That shows, how necessary the new information campaign #WIRFUERBIO with their slogan "no plastic into the bio bin" is. Landrat Dr. Against the background of the climate protection work of the Borken district, Kai Zwicker also made it clear: "Anyone who consistently separates his waste properly and keeps the valuable biowaste free from contaminants is actively involved in protecting the environment and the climate in its own household!" Other agenda items of the Mayors' Conference were an exchange of information on the funding program "Smart Cities" of the federal government, which uses it as a model to support municipalities in digital modernization and development, and a lecture on new possibilities for setting up wireless networks. In addition, it dealt with current issues of district development, such as the implementation of the climate protection concept in the district of Borken, with which the district council in the coming week will be.Tips on handling biowaste: biowaste should ideally be collected loosely in a designated container and directly - without plastic bag or compostable plastic bag - to be emptied into the bio bin. If you still want to collect your biowaste in a plastic bag, you can empty the contents in the bio bin and then put the plastic bag in the residual waste. In most cases, the residual waste bin is right next to the bio bin. It is much more convenient to use newspaper or paper bags. These paper bags are available to citizens of the district of Borken in the town offices of their town halls or on the recyclable material yards operated by the EGW as well as other paper bag models in the trade. All paper bags that are made of 100 percent paper are suitable. Info on the #WirfuerBio campaign can be found on the Internet at and [...]
