“The doctrine that art is an imitation of nature is full of folly. Nine-tenth of all the art that one encounters in this world is actually an imitation of other art. Fully a half of it is an imitation twice, thrice, or ten times removed. The artist, in fact, is seldom an accurate observer of nature; he leaves that gross and often revolting exploration to geologists, engineers and anatomists. The last thing he wants to see is a beautiful woman in the bright, pitiless sunlight.”
–H.L. Mencken, from “Prejudices: Fifth Series.”
Note: all government meetings noticed below are free and open to the public unless otherwise indicated. Many can be heard or seen live through each agency’s website.

Wetlands Restoration: The St. Johns River Water Management District will holds the first of two community meetings on the Flagler County Wetland Restoration Project, designed to increase the amount of wetland area. 5:30 p.m. at Flagler Beach City Hall, 105 S. 2nd St., Flagler Beach. See the webpage, www.sjrwmd.com/facts/flagler-wetland-restoration-project/, updating the project. For input, write at [email protected] The wetland restoration project will consist of moving piles of spoil back into man-made ditches and grading the material to the elevation that matches nearby remnants of natural wetland. The project will return dozens of acres of ditches and spoil piles to functional wetland that will yield food for fish and wildlife, filter and clean water, and provide other benefits. The second meeting is on Nov. 7.
The Indian Trails Middle School Band holds its fall concert at the school gym, 6:30 p.m.
