A look back at the week's top stories
HANSEN LOSES; OTHER INCUMBENTS MOVE ON: The primary election's primary casualty was School Board member Carl Hansen, who lost to Virginia Bryant. All other incumbents won their races. Three races _ the Democratic and Republican primaries for County Commission District 5 and the Democratic primary for tax collector _ will require a runoff election Oct. 3.
BOY DIES: A 4-year-old boy who was born and raised in Citrus County died Wednesday, two days after nearly drowning in a pool at a hotel near Bradenton. Jonathan Whitaker was at the hotel with his mother and his mother's boyfriend when he was left alone near the pool.
ALF CLOSED: The state suspended Countryside Manor's operating license because the assisted living facility failed, despite many warnings during a four-year period, to install a fire-safety sprinkler system. The facility's 32 residents were required to find new places to live.
