Thousands of fish die after swarming harbor
VENTURA | Thousands of anchovies and sardines have died in Ventura Harbor after using up all their oxygen, officials say.
Pat Hummer of the Ventura Harbor Patrol said the fish died Monday, although they moved into the harbor a week ago.
Mr. Hummer said three patrol boats drove around scooping up dead fish before they started sinking and stinking. They filled up more than 20 50-gallon barrels throughout the day. The carcasses were dumped at sea.
In early March, 175 tons or 2.5 million sardines died in Redondo Beach after running out of oxygen.
Officials said they don’t know why the fish entered the harbor, but they could have been chased by a sea lion, dolphin or strong tide.
Job center blasted for giving capes to jobless
ORLANDO | State officials are investigating an unemployment agency that spent public money to give 6,000 superhero capes to the jobless.
Workforce Central Florida spent more than $14,000 on the red capes as part of its “Cape-A-Bility Challenge” public relations campaign. The campaign featured a cartoon character, “Dr. Evil Unemployment,” who needs to be vanquished.
Florida’s unemployment agency director asked Monday for an investigation of the regional operation’s spending after the Orlando Sentinel published a story about the program. State director Cynthia Lorenzo said the spending appeared to be “insensitive and wasteful.”
Workforce Central Florida Director Gary J. Earl defends the program, saying it is part of a greater effort to connect with the community. The agency said it served 210,000 people during its last fiscal year, placing nearly 59,000 in jobs.
