Today at the Editor’s glance: Host David Ayres on Free For All Fridays on WNZF welcomes Trish Giaccone of the Family Life Center to talk about domestic violence and “the terror within,” along with Sheriff Rick Staly and a representative from SMA Healthcare, starting a little after 9 a.m. with my commentary, this week on Dave Chappelle and those allegations of “hate” against him. Flagler and Florida monthly unemployment figures are released at 10 a.m. City Repertory Theatre’s production of “Urinetown,” the musical, directed by John Sbordone, at 7:30 p.m. in CRT’s black box theater at City Marketplace, 160 Cypress Point Parkway, Suite B207, Palm Coast. Tickets are $30 adults and $15 students, available online here or by calling 386-585-9415, or at the door. As FlaglerLive’s Rick de Yampert writes, “The Tony-winning Broadway show, with music by Mark Hollmann, lyrics by Hollmann and Greg Kotis, and book by Kotis, is set in a dystopia in which a severe 20-year water shortage has forced the masses to use pay toilets controlled by a mega-corporation headed by the villainous Caldwell B. Cladwell (played by City Rep veteran Earl Levine). The draconian policies of his corporation, Urine Good Company, are enforced by the corrupt politicians and policemen he’s bribed, and urinal matrons such as Penelope Pennywise (Phillipa Rose), who makes Nurse Ratched seem like Mother Teresa.” See the full preview: “‘Urinetown,’ an Unserious Musical For Our Times, and For Our Town, at City Repertory Theatre.” The Stetson University Symphonic Band, Douglas Phillips, conductor, is in concert at 7:30 p.m. at Lee Chapel in Elizabeth Hall, 421 N.

It was set for Oct. 22 in 2008, on Oct. 19 two years ago, but the effort appears to have fizzled out even though, as the organization’s website states, “The Student Pledge Against Gun Violence began in 1996, supported by unanimous U.S. Senate Resolution and Presidential Proclamation, both calling for a Day of National Concern about Young People and Gun Violence and national distribution of the Student Pledge. See the brochure here or below. But it hasn’t been updated in five years. The country is not serious about stemming gun violence.
