In 2012 the ECCFD budget was $8.2 million, but the district had been spending $12 million a year, so cuts should have been taking place well before its failed attempt to milk more money out of the East County taxpayers, In 2012 their Measure S attempted to get a budget approved that added up to a hefty $16.7 million, which was double its actual $8.2 million budget, and you may remember the smart people of East County voted red base and pearl embellished ballet flat shoes red jutis red slip ons mojari red khussa their Measure S down to defeat, Now we are reading the board approved a 2013-14 primary budget of $11.9 million, which they apparently can manage with the federal money they received, but that money is running out, so they are thinking it’s time to come after the taxpayers again..
Seeing “The Wizard of Oz” on the big screen also offers an opportunity to consider the incredible special effects, considering the film was shot more than seven decades ago, long before computer-generated imagery. The black-and-white scenes of Dorothy battling against the wind as a twister approaches are especially transporting. And Toto’s impressive training all but ensures that another generation of kids will be clamoring for a Cairn terrier. The only negative aspect of getting such a close look at the film is that some of those special effects fall apart under close inspection. The Wicked Witch’s green face looks more like makeup, and the quick cuts that allow the legs of the witch’s dead sister to curl up and disappear under Dorothy’s house are more noticeable.
