A look back at the week's top stories.

MAN ACCUSED OF SEXUAL ASSAULT: Authorities say that Leonard Silberman, 59, offered a 13-year-old girl money for sex, then assaulted her when she declined. The reported attack occurred Nov. 7 in Silberman's car, on State Road 44 in Inverness. The girl was walking home from a convenience store.

COUNTY COMMISSION QUESTIONS SALARY STUDY: The County Commission declined to adopt a salary study that would have resulted in automatic raises for many county employees. Instead, they opted to study the study for four to six weeks to ensure the recommended salary ranges are acceptable and appropriate.

VETERANS DAY PARADE: Many veterans, school children and others marched down Main Street in Inverness on Veterans Day. Later, there was a ceremony at the Old Citrus County Courthouse.

SCHOOL BOARD DISCUSSES IMPACT FEES: The School Board's attorney suggested that Citrus County might revise its impact fee ordinance to call for an increase in school-related fees once a state moratorium on increases ends in July. The current school impact fee is $135 per single-family residential unit, one of the lowest in the state. A consultant has suggested increasing that to $1,025.
