Prosecutors want a child neglect charge dismissed against a 23-year-old Minot woman accused of leaving her 3-year-old son alone...

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Prosecutors want a child neglect charge dismissed against a 23-year-old Minot woman accused of leaving her 3-year-old son alone because she couldn't afford child care. The Minot Daily News reports a motion to dismiss the charge against Octavia Kavon Pilot was filed Tuesday.
 
     Authorities say Pilot was charged with the felony after her 7-year-old daughter told a social worker at her school she was worried about her little brother. Social workers went to Pilot's apartment and found the boy home alone playing with toys. Pilot was arrested while at her job.
 
     Ward County prosecutor Roza Larson says in court papers it "was a case of poverty" and that the mother "felt she was in a 'no-choice' situation." Authorities say she now has somebody assisting her to care for her children.

     RUGBY, N.D. (AP) - A Balta man who admitted illegally killing deer has been ordered to pay more than $2,800 in restitution and fees and had his hunting privileges suspended for two years. The Minot Daily News reports that 62-year-old Daryl Klein also must forfeit a rifle and scope to the North Dakota Game and Fish Department.
 
     The case began with a tip that led a game warden to discover about 20 dead deer around a Balta-area farmstead in January 2017.  Klein admitted he had shot and killed at least seven deer because he was frustrated with the deer eating his grain. The court put a $350 value on each deer he admitted killing.

    BISMARCK, N.D. - State Superintendent Kirsten Baesler says North Dakota's results on a national test show the importance of stronger state programs for early learning and reading. The test is called the National Assessment of Educational Progress, nicknamed the Nation's Report Card. The test is taken every two years in fourth and eighth grades in North Dakota and across the country.

    Baesler says North Dakota students are ahead of the national average scores for fourth and eighth grade math. In reading, North Dakota students were about the same as the national average. She says North Dakota educators will be working to improve the scores because the trends are flat and that is not good.

    Baesler says several state programs are under way to improve the results. They include grant programs for reading improvement and early childhood education, and a program called Choice Ready. Choice Ready gives school districts the ability to tailor programs to reach their educational goals.

    Results can be found online at www.nationsreportcard.gov.
