    Two skimmers were found at a gas station in Punta Gorda just before a new city ordinance takes effect to make it harder for crooks to use skimmers. It's happened not once, but twice at the Mobil/Circle K on the corner of U.S. 41 and Burnt Store Road.  A new city ordinance takes effect Sunday. It will require all gas stations within city limits to install a secondary lock for all pumps, have location-specific keys for each station instead of a master key, or have an internal device to prevent skimmers.  "I do look for the tags, and if I see it pulled off, I'll go to the next one," said driver Joe Schaver.
