Today at the Editor’s glance: The Palm Coast Planning Board meets at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall. The board will consider recommending a Future Land Use Map amendment that will enable the construction of an east-west extension of Citation Boulevard, connecting Seminole Boulevard and Belle Terre Boulevard, which would result in saving the city the need to build one of two fire stations in those regions, since the connector road would allow one to service both neighborhoods. The future land use proposed would change 38 acres from mixed use to residential. Vedic Moons, a Tarot Card, Psychic, and Palm Readings business, is seeking a special exception to be located in the St. Joe shopping plaza on Palm Coast Parkway.

“Nearly twenty years have passed since the shock, horror and humiliation of 9/11. The events of that single day ought to have discredited once and for all post-Cold war claims that God or Providence had summoned the United States to determine the future of humankind. Policy elites insisted otherwise. Intent on affirming America’s place as the engine of history, they embarked upon a course of action that laid the basis for the convulsions of 2020, with ill-advised adventurism abroad, allowing vulnerabilities at home to fester unattended. During that interval reckless irresponsibility defined the principal theme of American statecraft.”
–Andrew Bacevich, “After the Apocalypse” (2021).
