At Thursday's BOCC meeting, members debated whether to raise the millage rate for much needed capital or to look elsewhere through the budget.

Manatee County Clerk of the Courts and Comptroller R.B. 'Chips' Shore passed away yesterday at the age of 74. It is commonplace for newspapers to reflect on the contribution of public servants when they cross the great divide, and it is not abnormal for them to receive a considerably generous, perhaps even inflated posthumous appraisal. In the case of Shore's service, that doesn't seem possible. Immeasurable is the first word that comes to mind in terms of the contribution he made to good government in a county that has seen far too little of it. Still, that word seems grossly inadequate.
