Today at a Glance:
It’s Juneteenth. But don’t expect too many of our local governments to recognize it. The County Commission meets this evening. Proclamations? None. Recognitions? None. Palm Coast Mayor David Alfin, however, delivered a city proclamation at the African American Cultural Society’s Juneteenth celebration on Saturday. [Update: in his opening remarks at this evening’s County Commission meeting, Chairman Greg Hansen did commemorate Juneteenth, noting, incidentally, that he is from Texas, where Juneteenth originated.]
In Court: It’s trial week in felony court, with numerous non-high-profile cases on the docket, including the case of Konstantin Fedotov, 32, who is accused of strangling a juvenile who had allegedly thrown an egg at his parents’ house in Palm Coast. He faces a felony child abuse charge with a maximum penalty of five years in prison if convicted.
