No school all week: it’s the Thanksgiving holiday break.
Short-term vacation rentals: The Flagler County Commission holds a workshop with Rep. Paul Renner and Sen. Travis Hutson to discuss short-term rentals and how to position Flagler in light of likely legislative changes that could limit or change local authority to regulate the rentals. 1 p.m. at the Emergency Operations Center, 1769 E. Moody Blvd., Bldg. 3, Training Rooms A & B, Bunnell.
The Flagler County Commission meets at 5 p.m. in board chambers at the Government Services Building in Bunnell. Commissioners are to select a new chairman and vice-chairman, presumably replacing Chairman Nate McLaughlin. Commissioners will consider adopting an ordinance long in the works revising local regulations that apply to towing companies, including the setting of maximum towing fees. Commissioners are also expected to adopt on final reading a land use ordinance that would allow for medical marijuana dispensaries in certain areas of the county.
Cancellation notice: The County Commission was originally set to consider a series of applications for land uses leading to the development of a multi-residential-housing project at either end of Lakeside off State Road A1A at the north end of the county. Those hearings have been rescheduled to the evening commission meeting of Dec. 18.

Updates of ongoing permitting, construction and development projects in Palm Coast usually run here, along with a link to the city’s Week in Review. But the Week in Review, under the guise of being modernized, has become flashier and power-point like while becoming less substantive and dumbed down. We may or may not link to it in future. Here’s a summary of the latest developments as of Oct. 6
When Mickey Mouse Jammed Out Carmen and Other Favorites
From WQXR Blog: “One of the earliest Mickey Mouse shorts, “The Opry House,” features some of the most well-known tunes from Bizet’s Carmen, including a comedic rendition of the “Toreador Song,” in which a violinist breaks his instrument and then uses his beard as an improvised violin of sorts, and a meowed version of the popular Habanera in which a pair of dentures stand in for castanets. But that’s not the only bit of classical music we find in ‘The Opry House.'”
