East MalaCompra Road and Malacompra Park closed for dunes restoration: The easternmost section of MalaCompra Road will be temporarily closed as Flagler County’s dune restoration project moves south. Sand deliveries will begin Monday morning (Feb. 26). Flagler County has just completed its fifth week of work on the project, and completed the work at Washington Oaks Garden State Park. Revegetation of the recently shaped dunes is expected to occur over the next few months. “This next phase of dunes restoration construction will start at Bay Drive Park near Sea Colony and move southward to the MalaCompra access point,” said County Engineer Faith Alkhatib, who is overseeing the projects, which will cost upwards of $25 million. High tides, daylight, and weather affect the length of the workday.

58 years ago today, I was arrested for the first time as a participant in the sit-ins at lunch counters in downtown Nashville. Walking out to the paddy wagons, I tried to walk with a sense of pride & dignity. I felt free, I felt liberated. I felt like I crossed over. #goodtrouble pic.twitter.com/NSwsxarnva
