By Oct 6 hundreds of turtles had perished on Hwy 98. I'm afraid Mr. Santos is mistaken that "something is being done". Nothing was done, begining with the incompetent lack of foresight and planning on the part of the lake Serene Property Association's Board members. Anyone with half a brain could have predicted distress for the wildlife that lived in the lake if the lake was drained. Why didn't they talk with a biologist before the lake was drained? The decimation of the turtle polulation could have been avoided. It's a shame shame shame. They ought to be ashamed of themselves. In my view this incompetence amounts to an imoral act by violating the command to Be Good Stewards. This negligence resulted in cruelty.
