In Flagler and Palm Coast:

Note: all government meetings noticed below are free and open to the public unless otherwise indicated. Many can be heard or seen live through each agency’s website.

The Sheriff’s daily incident reports and jail bookings are posted here.

wnzfFree For All Fridays: Host David Ayres welcomes Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly introducing a new book on the history of sheriffs in the county, Flagler County Historical Society’s Sisco Deen on the end of the Flagler Centennial, and his own new book on Flagler’s history, Carl Laundrie, and Nikki White and her flag-waving (all guests subject to change), all starting with a commentary by FlaglerLive Editor Pierre Tristam on liberal delusions in the Age of Trump.

david snelgroveFriday: In Court: 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. [Hearing postponed to Dec. 1.]

Friday: Scenic A1A Pride committee meets at 9 a.m. at the Hammock Community Center, 79 Mala Compra Road.

Friday: The Twenty-ninth Drug Court Graduation, 3 p.m. in Courtroom 101 at the Flagler County courthouse. The keynote speaker is Jessica Parnell.

Friday, Saturday, Sunday: “Plaza Suite,” the Neil Simon comedy, opens at the Flagler Playhouse for the first of three weekends. Three couples successively occupy Suite 719 at the Plaza Hotel, New York City. A wry tale of a marriage in tatters, followed by the exploits of a Hollywood producer looking for sexual diversion, and finally, a couple fighting to persuade their nervous daughter to leave the safety of the bathroom and go to the hotel’s ballroom to get married. This funny yet thought provoking show has become a classic. To book tickets, go online (flaglerplayhouse.org) or call the Box Office (386-586-0773) while tickets are still available.
