Women’s rights in Afghanistan by Osama Hajjaj, Jordan.

Today in the eyes of the editorial staff: Palm Coast City Council meets briefly in a special meeting to appoint a redistribution committee, as required by the city charter. The redistribution of electoral constituencies is carried out every 10 years in accordance with the results of the census, by balancing each of the city’s districts in proportion to their population. Each member of the municipal council will appoint a representative from each district. The mayor will appoint a person appointed in a personal capacity. The council will then hold a workshop where the city’s finance manager will present a final overview of the proposed budget. The agenda for the special meeting is here and the agenda for the workshop is here. Matanzas Woods Parkway viaduct closure coming Thursday: The Florida Department of Transportation will work on the Matanzas Woods Parkway between the two ramps of I-95 on Thursday, August 26, causing lane closures. The contractor on the project will keep one lane open at all times to allow traffic to alternate on the one lane segment and there will be a signage operation in place for traffic control safety. The project will stop from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. during the morning and afternoon school rushes. Magna Carta: Two months after the approval of the “Great Charter of Freedoms” by the King of England John – his barons force him to sign it – Pope Innocent III declares it invalid (the same bloodthirsty pope who launched the crusade against the Albigensian in the heart of France, inspiring many crusades in the Middle East), thus continuing the great tradition of the Church of piling one Syllabus of errors on another.

Vaccination and testing schedule from August 23 to 29: The Florida Department of Health in Flagler County is moving its Covid-19 testing operations to the Flagler County Fairgrounds, 150 Sawgrass Rd. In Bunnell. The site will be open on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. to allow testing of:

  • Flagler County School District students, teachers and school staff. No appointment is necessary.
  • The general public (those who are not employed by or do not attend local schools) by appointment only. Reservations can be made by calling 386-437-7350 ext. 0.

Several factors influenced the decision to conduct testing earlier and return to Cattleman’s Hall, including the afternoon heat, increased demand for testing and the adjustments requested by the case investigation team and department contact tracing. To note: On Friday August 27, testing and vaccination will take place at 301 Dr. Carter Blvd. from 8 a.m. to noon due to an event previously scheduled at the Parc des Expositions. As a reminder, the Ministry of Health does not not offer tests for travel verification. Vaccines will continue to be offered at the main health department location, 301 Dr. Carter Blvd. in Bunnell. The Pfizer clinic will be open three afternoons a week – Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evening from 3.30 p.m. to 6 p.m. for the rest of August and through September. Dates are preferred; Walk-ins are welcome.

Please note that the health department is awaiting further instructions for the administration of the Pfizer and Moderna booster doses. CVS, Walgreens, Publix and Walmart are currently giving boosters to people with compromised immune systems. The DOH-Flagler will add these vaccinations to its operations at the Flagler County Fairgrounds next month. Details will be shared once plans are finalized. For more information on vaccination and Covid-19 testing locally, please visit flagler.floridahealth.gov. For testing and vaccination appointments, please call 386-437-7350 ext. 0 weekdays between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
