Today at the editor’s glance: It’s the Flagler Tiger Bay mayoral forum tonight at the Palm Coast Community Center, with four of the six candidates in attendance: David Alfin, Carol Bacha, Doug Courtney and Cornelia Manfre. The forum will be broadcast on WNZF. More rain: a messy day ahead with showers and thunderstorms likely in the afternoon, with heavy rainfall possible in the afternoon. Euro 2020: Groups E and F are decided today, with Sweden v. Poland and Slovakia v. Spain at noon, and none of the four teams yet eliminated. Then it’s the Group of Death, with France facing Portugal and Germany facing Hungary at 3 p.m. France cannot afford to lose though it’ll take a tie, which won’t help Portugal advance if Germany beats Hungary, as it is expected to. See the standings here. All games on ESPN and Univision.
