Grace Community Food Pantry, 245 Education Way, Bunnell, drive-thru open today from 1 to 4 p.m. The food pantry is organized by Pastor Charles Silano and Grace Community Food Pantry, a Disaster Relief Agency in Flagler County. Feeding Northeast Florida helps local children and families, seniors and active and retired military members who struggle to put food on the table. Working with local grocery stores, manufacturers, and farms we rescue high-quality food that would normally be wasted and transform it into meals for those in need. The Flagler County School District provides space for much of the food pantry storage and operations. Call 386-586-2653 to help, volunteer or donate.

Notably: It is the FlaglerLive-declared Missing William O. Douglass Day. The Supreme Court justice may have been a bit of a rake and lost his grip on decorum in his last years, but his legacy remains essential even as it dims beneath the black hole of the current majority. Douglas sat on the court for 36 years and 211 days, a record at risk of being overtaken by that of the cruelest judge, Clarence Thomas, who’s been playing the role of a jutsice for 31 years. Today is Douglas’s birthday (1898).

Polygraph tests of government employees and of employees in industry are rampant. The dossiers on all citizens mount in number and increase in size. Now they are being put on computers, so that, by pressing one button, all the miserable, the sick, the suspect, the unpopular, the off-beat people of the Nation can be instantly identified. These examples and many others demonstrate an alarming trend whereby the privacy and dignity of our citizens is being whittled away by sometimes imperceptible steps. Taken individually, each step may be of little consequence. But when viewed as a whole, there begins to emerge a society quite unlike any we have seen — a society in which government may intrude into the secret regions of man’s life at will.
–From William O/ Douglas’s dissent in Osborn v. United States, 385 U.S. 323, 343 (1966).
