Posted on Facebook, Saturday morning, Oct. 7 (from John Kerr): “LAST NIGHT, EARLY THIS MORNING, some person shot and killed a young doe/deer in the Cimmeron area. It died on a neighbors lawn. The bullet went entirely thru the chest, clipped the lungs, and resulted in a slow and probably painful bleed out, Graphic? Yes, hunters are taught to follow, find, and harvest what they shoot. If you can’t, then you don’t shoot. (not sure if its even season yet). I hope its not a disgruntled homeowner, and that the deer ran all the way from the swamps north of Cimmeron. If the shooter is a neighbor, I hope the stray round didn’t hit a another neighbor. More thoughts, but I’ll bite my tongue.”

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.
