ABORTION WAITING PERIOD AT ISSUE: Leon County Circuit Judge Terry Lewis will hold a hearing in a legal battle about the constitutionality of a 2015 law that would require women to wait 24 hours before having abortions. The Florida Supreme Court this year approved a temporary injunction blocking the law from taking effect. Plaintiffs argue the law is an unconstitutional violation of the right to privacy, while the law’s supporters say it would give women more time to consider whether they want to have abortions. (Tuesday, 11 am., Leon County Courthouse, 301 South Monroe St., Tallahassee.)

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. Here’s a summary of the latest developments as of Oct. 6
When Mickey Mouse Jammed Out Carmen and Other Favorites
From WQXR Blog: “One of the earliest Mickey Mouse shorts, “The Opry House,” features some of the most well-known tunes from Bizet’s Carmen, including a comedic rendition of the “Toreador Song,” in which a violinist breaks his instrument and then uses his beard as an improvised violin of sorts, and a meowed version of the popular Habanera in which a pair of dentures stand in for castanets. But that’s not the only bit of classical music we find in ‘The Opry House.'”
