Today’s Briefing: Quick Links


“As a nation, Britain in 1895 had an air of careless supremacy which galled her neighbors. The attitude, called “splendid isolation,” was both a state of mind and a fact. Britain did not worry seriously about potential enemies, felt no need of allies and had no friends. In a world in which other national energies were bursting old limits, this happy condition gave no great promise of permanence.”

–Barbara Tuchman, from “The Proud Tower” (1965) [Click on the image or the link to buy the book]

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 on WNZF: It’s all about Christmas as host David Ayres welcomes Bill Butler to speak about the Fantasy Lights show in Town Center, created in memory of his late daughter, Flagler Beach’s Tom Gillin, who’ll speak about First Friday and the holiday parade there, Alan Whetzel and the tree-lighting at Craig-Flagler Palms, Palm Coast Mayor Milissa Holland who’ll speak about the Palm Coast Starlight Parade, and more, starting a little after 9 a.m. on WNZF.

david snelgroveFriday: In Court, a hearing is scheduled at 1:30 p.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.

Friday: The “Festival of Trees” at the Main Branch Library in Palm Coast will have a centennial flair to honor the founding families of Flagler County for its 100th anniversary.

We will have a special Centennial Tree this year so that any of Flagler County’s founding families can place an ornament on the tree to represent their family.” County Commissioner Nate McLaughlin will provide musical entertainment at the beginning of Friday’s kick-off event while the Centennial Committee recaps the events that added sparkle to the yearlong celebration of Flagler County’s history. The husband and wife duo Don Meritt and Annette Moreau – known for their uplifting show tunes – will follow with holiday songs that will provide plenty of opportunities to sing along.

Sunday: It’s a supermoon: Nasa explains: “Since the moon’s orbit is elliptical, one side (perigee) is about 30,000 miles (50,000 km) closer to Earth than the other (apogee). The word syzygy, in addition to being useful in word games, is the scientific name for when the Earth, sun, and moon line up as the moon orbits Earth. When perigee-syzygy of the Earth-moon-sun system occurs and the moon is on the opposite side of the Earth from the sun, we get a perigee moon or more commonly, a supermoon.” That moon can be “as much as 14 percent bigger and 30% brighter than an apogee full moon. However it’s not always easy to tell the difference. A 30% difference in brightness can easily be masked by clouds or the competing glare of urban lights. Also, there are no rulers floating in the sky to measure lunar diameters.”

Blood Donations: The Big Red Bus will be at the following locations this week:

  • Friday: Walmart, 174 Cypress Point Parkway Palm Coast, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Announcements:

Online version of National Citizen Survey now open to Palm Coast residents: The City of Palm Coast invites all residents to take the City’s comprehensive citizen survey between now and Dec. 9. The online survey went live on Nov. 24. You can access the survey here. The online option is in addition to the regular mail-in survey conducted for the City by National Citizen Survey every other year. Earlier this fall, 1,500 surveys from the National Citizen Survey were mailed to randomly selected residents, with representation from each of the City’s four districts. Both survey processes are anonymous. The City of Palm Coast has been participating in the NCS since 2002. Currently, the City conducts the NCS every other year, with the City conducting separate surveying on its own in the off years. The City uses all survey results to improve city services. With the National Citizen Survey, Palm Coast’s results are compared to more than 500 other local governments across the United States. The feedback received from residents is presented to the Palm Coast City Council and is used for strategic planning and to help City leaders set priorities for the next fiscal year.

Palm Coast Construction and Development Progress Reports

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

    Good show. Palm Coast ought to be able to exceed this sad performance:
