Fantasy of Lights at Palm Coast’s Central Park: The Rotary Club of Flagler County hosts its 17th Annual Fantasy Lights Festival at Central Park in Town Center, through Dec. 30, 6:30-9 p.m. each night. Fantasy Lights is free self-guided walking tour around Central Park with over 50 large animated light displays, festive live and broadcast holiday music, holiday snacks and beverages.

World Cup: The last two games in the round of 16 today: Morocco and Spain at 10 a.m., Portugal and Switzerland at 2 p.m. So far, and aside from Germany’s early exit and Argentina’s freak loss early on, it’s turning onto a predictable cup of the usual colonialists of the sport.
Keep in Mind: FEMA has extended the deadline into January for Flagler County Hurricane Ian survivors to apply for federal disaster assistance: The Federal Emergency Management Agency has extended the deadline until January 12. The Disaster Recovery Center is in a large tent located near the arena in the center of the fairground’s property, 150 Sawgrass Road, Bunnell. Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Disaster Recovery Centers serve as FEMA’s local outreach offices to provide disaster survivors with information from it, as well as from Florida state agencies and the U.S. Small Business Administration. Survivors can get help applying for federal assistance and disaster loans, update applications and learn about other resources available. Survivors can apply for disaster assistance at disasterassistance.gov, by calling 800-621-3362 from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Eastern Time, or by using the FEMA mobile app. Those who use a relay service such as video relay service (VRS), captioned telephone service, or others, will need to provide FEMA the number for that service. Those who have insurance are encouraged to file a claim for damages to homes, personal property, and vehicles before applying for FEMA assistance. FEMA cannot duplicate other sources of assistance may have been received.

Notably: This had been her last tweet. (In October, she had tweeted: “male cats should eat mostly wet food as dry food is bad for them.”) Not a happy day at Cheers and other Brown Dogs.

The American public is getting sick and tired of what these young people are doing. But it’s really partly the public’s own fault for allowing the permissiveness that’s been going on for the past 15 or 20 years. By permissiveness, I mean simply following Dr. Spock’s system of raising children. But that kind of permissiveness isn’t unique to young people. Our entire society has promoted an “anything goes” attitude in every area of life and in every American institution. Look at the completely irresponsible editorship of our country’s newspapers. By looking for provocative things to put on their front pages, they’re encouraging these kids to act the way they’re acting. I wonder even more about the responsibility of the press when I read about events like the so-called My La massacre in Vietnam. The press and the communications system jumped way ahead of the trials. At the time, they made accusations that I doubted they could back up; frankly, I hoped they couldn’t. Well, it turns out there may have been something to it. But I could show you pictures of what the North Vietnamese and the Viet Cong are doing to our people over there. I was at a place called Dak Song, where the children were all burned to death by the V.C., and that’s not an unusual thing. But for some reason, our newspapers have never printed pictures or stories about it. With all the terrible things that are being done throughout the world, it has to be one little incident in the United States Army–and the use of the word massacre–that causes the uproar.
–From John Wayne’s Playboy interview, May 1971.
How many times has he said something like this and his loyalists say “He didn’t really mean that” or “He is misunderstood”? He means it folks!
When will y’all get it that it’s not about God, country, you or me, it’s ALL about him?
Shame on the Republican politicians who cannot, or will not, denounce this man. Shame on the Republicans who turned their backs on Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger, John McCain, Jeff Flake and others who tried to tell us about Trump, and whose careers were damaged by their co-representatives.
We know of people who tell us they don’t want to listen, they don’t want to watch, they don’t want to know, they just believe it’s all made up.
It’s real. These are the signs of a cult.
