No injuries were reported Friday when a plane — whose landing gear was stuck — got things unstuck when the pilot was able to deploy gear manually.
The Citrus County Sheriiff’s Office (CCSO) said that the CCSO Aviation Unit, alongside Citrus County Fire Rescue and Nature Coast EMS, arrived on scene as the small plane circled the Inverness Airport with failing landing gear.
Fire, EMS and Law Enforcement all came together to prepare for the worst, but hope for the best, the CCSO said in a statement.
In Citrus County, more than 300 children that are abused, abandoned and neglected are in the child welfare system, most of which are 10 years of age and younger.
Their fate has been turned over to the state. They now depend on lawyers, judges, social workers and foster parents to make sure they are safe, protected and provided the services necessary to overcome their circumstances.
Citrus County Animal Services is in desperate need of foster homes especially for those that are most vulnerable and fragile which include neonates (bottle babies), especially kittens, moms with litters, and underage (not old enough for adoption) puppies and kittens.
We also have foster opportunities for those animals that have medical needs or who just need a break from the shelter, think of it as their vacation or weekend off from work.
