County won't move Inverness veterans memorials

War memorials in Inverness Florida

If the unanimous vote today of the Citrus County Commission is any indicator, plans to move veterans memorials from the front of the Historic Old Courthouse in Inverness aren't going anywhere.

Commissioners voted 5-0 to not go ahead with moving the memorials to the back of the courthouse, where some groups had lobbied for the landmarks to be relocated to.

Surprisingly, some representatives from the county's veterans groups said at the commission meeting that they hadn't even been invited to discussions that eventually led to calls to move the monuments.

The Citrus County Sheriff's Office today arrested two teens (one who was already in custody) for attempted premeditated murder and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

Bryan Robinson, 16, (who has already been charged in the death of Stephen Gorney, 54, of Crystal River last week) and Kyle Dutcher, 16, of Crystal River, were arrested today after detectives received a tip about an incident that occurred in March.
