david snelgroveOct. 27: A hearing is scheduled at 9:30 a.m. in Courtroom 401 before Circuit Judge Dennis Craig on two new issues relating to the scheduled re-sentencing of convicted double-murderer David Snelgrove, who killed Glyn Fowler, 84, and his wife, Vivian, 79, on Bannbury Lane in Palm Coast in late June 2000. The Supreme Court has ordered Snelgrove-re-sentenced because twice before, non-unanimous juries recommended that he be killed. That was deemed unconstitutional. Juries must now be unanimous. Before getting to that stage, a hearing must determine a) whether Craig has a conflict of interest as a sitting judge, since he was working in the State Attorney's office at the time Snelgrove was originally prosecuted (though not in the homicide division), and b) whether Snelgrove should have an evidentiary hearing about his mental capacities to be even eligible for the death penalty. The hearing will decide whether that evidentiary hearing is due. Snelgrove is expected to be present. At the Flagler County courthouse.

This zany, funny show has become a classic. See dates, times and ticket prices and purchasing options here.

Palm Coast Construction and Development Progress Reports

The following is an update of ongoing permitting, construction and development projects in Palm Coast, through June 8 (the city administration’s full week in review is here):

Cultural Coda:

From WQXR in New York: ““Down in the River to Pray” is a fantastic song. Maybe you know it from Alison Krauss’ beautiful rendition in 2000’s O Brother Where Art Thou, a film that also boasts one of the greatest soundtracks of all time.) It’s a simple melody, and its calming lyrics act as a balm for the soul. That serenity translates pretty well to baritone and bass brass, as the The University of Texas Tuba/Euphonium Studio demonstrates in the featured video. Many orchestra’s don’t typically need a combination of 11 tubas and euphoniums — let alone to carry the melody — so we’re very happy to see them take center stage. Not much is known about the history of this song. In 1867’s Slave Songs of the United States, an early effort to compile the spirituals and work songs of the country’s recently emancipated population, “Down in the River” (titled “The Good Old Way”) is classified as a song of the “Inland Slave States” (Tennessee, Arkansas, and the Mississippi River). It’s also attributed to a certain George H. Allan. However, Allan was almost certainly not the composer. Like many folk tune compilations, the contribution here is most likely the work of a transcriber who simply wrote down what they heard.”

    I must admit that I’ve never thought of the tuba as being a relaxing instrument. Usually I don’t take the time to listen to an entire piece, however, today I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this in its entirety, and I am much more “chill” than I was five minutes ago. Thank you!
