Teenage turtle power

Asher Norvell, 13, of Temple carefully handles and inspects a red-eared slider turtle he caught Tuesday in Burt Pond at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in Belton. Norvell spends many evenings searching for turtles in the pond. He likes to catch and release them. “All of the turtles in the pond are red-eared sliders except for one box turtle,” he said.
