A look back at the week's top stories.

BIRDS LEAVE: Having learned the 1,228-mile trip from Wisconsin to Citrus County by following costumed pilots in ultralight aircrafts, five whooping cranes began their journey back north on their own, relying on instinct and clues they picked up along the way.

FORMER OFFICER SOUGHT: Inverness police announced they are searching for one of their former officers who is charged with organized fraud and identity theft, which they believe he committed while still wearing a badge. An arrest warrant was issued March 22 for Kevin Phillips, who worked patrol for the Inverness department from August 2000 to June 2001. Phillips became known in Citrus County for his history of on-the-job accidents, including a May 16 incident where his own patrol car ran over him, injuring his abdomen.

CELL PHONES: After much discussion, the School Board voted to maintain the ban on possession and use of cell phones and other electronic devices.
