Wednesday Briefing: Wadsworth Skate Park Upgrades, Compassionate Friends, Sabal Palms, Orwell

| February 28, 2018

wadsworth skate park

The skate park portion of Wadsworth Park will be closed through Friday as it undergoes equipment replacement and restoration, in time for spring break. Three major ramps on the north end of the skate park will be replaced as part of the $80,000 project, as well as some other smaller components – rails and features. Additionally, this portion of Wadsworth Park is being pressure washed and painted. The remainder of Wadsworth Park – its sports fields and dog park – remain open. And the park will be the starting point of a student-led march Friday at 6 p.m., toward First Friday and Veterans Park in Flagler Beach, to protest school shootings and demand action.

“It was not merely the lack of money. It was rather that, having no money they still lived mentally in the money-world — the world in which money is virtue and poverty is crime. It was not poverty but the down-dragging of respectable poverty that had done for them. They had accepted the money code and by that code they were failures.”

–From George Orwell’s “Keep The Aspidistra Flying” (1936).
