commissioners htive agreed to accept the Houston Oilers offer of million in cash and a million practice facility in exchange of being from the final year of their lease at the Astrodome Oilers owner Dud Adams has already arranged to move the franchise to Nashville but cant go before 1998 unless the Oilers arc allowed out of their lease Harris County Commissioner El Fran co Lee said Thursday an agreement has been reached among the commissioners to accept Adams buyout offer The million would be paid in eight install ments from June of this year until Jan 15 2001 Harris County Judge Robert Eckels told KTRKTV that the fivemember county commissioners court will vote on the offer at its next meeting on Feb 25 Its to everyones best interest that we do this and move Eckels said Its a good deal for the taxpayers and a good deal for the Oilers and it will let us move on to try to pursue another Eckels said The city of Houston also must sign off on the deal but Eckels said he believes Houston mayor Bob Lanicr is ready to add his approval Lanicr and Adams arc longtime antagonists but a top aide to Lanicr said the mayor will not block he deal if Eckels thinks its the best thing to do The mayor has said if the county cer tifies that this will compensate them for the final year and the city receives some sort of reimbursement for their legal fees from the Oilers and the Astros signoff then he would not stand in the Dave Waldcn the assistant to the mayor told KRIVTV on Thursday night If Adams gets the OK from the city and county the only remaining obstacle would be Astrodome

for the use of tungsteniron shot during the next waterfowl hunting season based on preliminary tests that show no harm to birds that ingest the pellets If the Service goes forward with the proposal water fowlers would have a choice of three types of shot steel bismuthtin and tung steniron for the 199798 season Our intention is to give hunters as much choice as possible while protecting birds from Acting Service Director John Rogers said So far we have seen nothing in the test results that suggests results that tungsteniron is harmful when ingested by In 1991 lead shot was phased out for use in waterfowl hunting because it was found to be toxic to ducks and geese that ingest it while feeding At that time steel shot became the only legal load for waterfowl hunting The Service recently approved bismuthtin shot after exten sive testing The Federal Cartridge Company filed an application with Ihc Service last all seeking approval of Ihc tungsteniron shot The company submitted the results of a 30day test to assess loxicity on gamefarm mallards Mused on those test results the Service decided to propose temporary approval of tungsteniron shot while the company conducts further
