    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.
