Please brake for turtles

ST. PAUL, Minnesota (AP) — Why did the turtle cross the road?
Minnesota wildlife managers say it’s because turtles are trying to get from their winter homes to their warm-weather nesting areas. And the state Department of Natural Resources is urging drivers in Minnesota to give turtles a brake.

Carol Hall, an agency specialist in amphibians, says many turtles are killed on roads each year, especially during the nesting season.

The agency says drivers who see a turtle on the road should slow down and go around it. The department also says it’s best to let turtles cross unassisted. If it’s necessary to help, the department says to move them in as direct a line as safely possible.

Minnesota has nine turtle species, some of which are protected.

Conn. police: Parents gambled, left kids in car
MASHANTUCKET, Connecticut (AP) — Two Massachusetts parents have been accused of leaving a 1-year-old and a 10-year-old alone in a car as they gambled at a Connecticut casino.

Connecticut state police say Edwine Louissaint of Dedham and David Augustin of Milton face charges including second-degree reckless endangerment.

Police found the children Thursday after being called to a garage at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket.

State police Lt. J. Paul Vance says video surveillance and gambling records showed Augustin and Louissaint were in the resort for more than an hour.

Court officials say Augustin was ordered held on $40,000 bond Friday, while Louissaint was released on $25,000 bond after she promised to reappear in court.
