All Flagler County schools are offering free meals to all students today and the rest of the week, by order of the United States Department of Agriculture, and as a consequence of Hurricane Irma.
In Court: Erin Vickers, 23, the Palm Coast woman facing 49 charges related to sex crimes against children, is in her second day of trial on two of the 49 charges—the alleged rape of her own daughter, who was 1 year old when the alleged assault took place on Feb. 26, 2015, and a charge of promoting sexual acts. Vickers since that winter has been held without bond at the Flagler County jail. Her case is tied to that of Paul Dykes, 20, who also faces eight charges of raping a child about the same age as Vickers’s—he has two children of his own, but his parental rights were terminated by court order in March 2016—among the 41 charges that have been filed against him. He is not expected to go on trial until later this year or early next year. The trial takes place before Circuit Judge Dennis Craig.

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.
