Today in the eyes of the editorial staff: The Nobel Prize for Literature is announced today at 7 a.m. at the Swedish Academy in Stockholm. The prize comes with a prize of $ 1.144 million. The odds of the bookmakers for the best possibilities: Annie Ernaux from France (8/1), Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o from Kenya (8/1), Haruki Murakami from Japan (10/1) and Margaret Atwood from Canada (10/1) ). Circuit judge Terence Perkins would normally hold a drug court today, but that won’t happen. The judge holds a series of sentencing, plea and bail hearings throughout the day. Rezoning: The Flagler County School District is hosting the second round of its “listening tours” regarding school rezoning, now submitting a revised and much smaller plan to rezone only the R section in Palm Coast. Students would be sent there to Indian Trails Middle and Matanzas High instead of going now to Flagler Palm Coast High and Buddy Taylor Middle. The previous plan proposed to change the zoning of each of the nine schools in the district. It aroused strong opposition. Tonight’s listening session is at 6 p.m. at the Wadsworth / Buddy Taylor Cafeteria, at 6 p.m. Wednesday’s session at Indian Trails Middle School drew only five members of the audience. See: “After parents objected to ‘fairness’ and race-based balance, the rezoning plan now limits the impact on the R section of Palm Coast. ”
