A Low Visibility Caution in Bunnell: Drivers are urged to use caution as they traverse the corridors of both U.S. Highway 1 (North State Street) and State Road 100 West, Bunnell, due to dense smoke from fire near the intersection of these two main highways. Visibility conditions are expected to deteriorate overnight as the smoke holds close to the ground. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) placed warning signs, and area law enforcement agencies are monitoring conditions. If visibility worsens, then the road may be closed until visibility improves. Stay tuned to local and social media for updates as they occur.

There will be tall tales, bad impersonations, ridiculous chase scenes, disgruntled waiters, lovable panhandlers, melodic macaroni, and misbehaving sausages. Tickers are $15 to $20. March 17-19 and March 24-26, Friday and Saturday performances at 7:30 p.m., Sunday performances at 3 p.m. Book tickets here.
In medias res: The Observer’s Sierra Williams reports: “Adam Morley ran in the 2022 race for the Florida State House of Representative for District 19 and has filed to run again for the seat in the 2024 election. Morley faced Renner as well in 2018, for the then-District 24 seat.” Morley is a brilliant gem who happens to have been running against a mastodon of fund-raising in a one-party state that’s reduced humanists to dust. He keeps running. “Morley said that although he has filed as a democrat, he doesn’t consider himself a partisan candidate. Instead, he told the Observer he is running on the issues important to his community, as he did for the 2022 race: clean water, women’s rights and local control are just a few of the issues listed on his Facebook page.”
