    FLORIDA COUNTY JUDGE GOES TO WALGREENS TO REFILL INKS  
    A couple of weeks back, the Treasure Coast’s chief circuit judge was walking out of the Martin County Courthouse holding a handful of used-up printer cartridges when he was spotted by Palm Beach Post reporter Daphne Duret.Judge William Roby, who supervises the court system throughout Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee counties, was heading to Walgreens to have the cartridges refilled, rather than buying new ones.”You’ve got to save money somewhere,” he told me Friday. “Getting them refilled saves about $10-$15 per cartridge.”And here you thought your government wasn’t working hard to save those tax dollars.It’s a small but telling example of ways some Treasure Coast government agencies are dealing with the deepening budget crisis and drying up of tax revenues. Like many of us at home, they are learning to pinch pennies.No, this is not an April Fools’ column – two days early. You read that right.In many ways, the tough times are the best thing that could have happened to our taxing agencies. Mindsets are being altered, policies are being adjusted, contracts are being cut.Efficiency is spreading.
