Today at the Editor’s glance: The Garden Club at Palm Coast is holding a Membership Open House at the Palm Coast Historical Museum from 1 to 3 p.m. The public is invited. You can meet fellow gardeners and plant enthusiasts (pots yes, pot no, alas). The museum is located at Holland Memorial Park, 18 Florida Park Dr. Did you catch the school superintendent’s weekly letter Friday? New covid-related restrictions in schools: Indoor extracurricular activities on our campuses will be limited to 50 percent capacity (outdoor sports not affected), non-essential visitations are stopped until further notice, and “On-campus events such as open house and curriculum nights may be held virtual-only, part-virtual, or in person, when appropriate.” That last phrase is quite confusing. Another speaker as if plucked out of last Tuesday’s Flagler County School Board meeting:
