I was driving west on State Road 44 from Interstate 95 to DeLand when Volusia
County struck me: its oceanfront cities, its river towns, the rural and conservation
lands between. I was left feeling not just balanced, but driving in some existential
comfort. Comfort food came to mind — but then, comfort geography.
 
Wasn’t the Amendment 1 vote a simultaneous insistence to make us
first again in conserving our most valuable lands?
