■ Crash marks 3rd minor accident in as many days
From staff reports
A delivery van overturned on Farm-to-Market 2673 Saturday afternoon when the driver lost control of the vehicle.
“He was driving too fast for the conditions and I believe he was not paying attention,” Texas Department of Fhablic Safety Trooper Cpl. Rick Alvarez said.
Alvarez said 23-year-old United Parcel Service driver Steven Mitchell was
headed west about 1:30 p.m. when he drove the Dodge Caravan off the road, hitting rocks and brush on the right shoulder of the road near the intersection of FM 2673 and Island View Drive.
Cromwell was not injured, but Alvarez said the driver was issued a ticket for failure to control speed.
Comal County sheriff’s Deputy Richard Smith said Cromwell had only four packages left in his vehicle and had about 15 minutes left on his route.
There were at least two other wrecks caused by speed and inattention in the last three days.
On Thursday a woman and child were transported to McKenna Memorial Hospital after a 16-year-old driver turned wide into oncoming traffic on Farm-to-Market 1101. The Nissan Pathfinder he was driving nearly struck a Chrysler Town and Country van head-on.
On Friday another 16-year-old boy in a Nissan Pathfinder turned too quickly onto South Kowald Lane from the Interstate 35 access road and the vehicle flipped into a ditch.
The driver and his 15-year-old passenger were not injured.

■ Five schools have low ratings
DALLAS (AP) — More than 40 teachers and one principal in Dallas might lose their jobs at five schools that received academically unacceptable ratings for two straight years, according to a district memo.
Three high schools and two middle schools fell into the academically unacceptable category, and under state law, must go through a process known as “reconstitution.”
Only a handful of the state’s 8,000 schools must go through this process, said Debbie Ratcliffe, a spokeswoman for the Texas Education Agency.
“When you reconstitute, you’re cleaning house, basically,” Ratcliffe said.
The Dallas Independent School District has identi
fied 44 teachers who could be fired, based on state test scores, according to the memo.
Principals are in the process of notifying those teachers, a school district spokesman said.
Teachers whose students have tested well have the best chance of keeping their jobs.
Under state law, principals who have headed their schools that have received unacceptable ratings both years must be removed from their campuses.
One principal will be affected by this, although the district spokesman declined to name the principal.
Teachers asked to leave their schools will likely be used as permanent substitutes at other schools, said Steve Flores, the chief administrative officer for the Dallas Independent School District.

Man arrested after diverted flight waives hearing
CORPUS CHRISTI (AP) — A Mexican citizen whose visa was revoked after he allegedly interfered with a crew on a flight from Monterrey, Mexico, to Houston earlier in the week has waived his right to a detention hearing.
Eduardo Turnbull-Bolado, 59, is accused of assaulting a flight attendant who kept asking him to sit down during Monday’s flight, according to an arrest affidavit.
The Continental Express flight was diverted to Corpus Christi, where Turn-bull-Bolado was removed from the plane.
His attorney, Robert Zamora, said Friday’s detention hearing wasn’t necessary because Turnbull-Bolado was ineligible for bond after his visa was revoked.
According to the arrest affidavit, Tum-bull-Bolado asked the flight attendant for immigration forms before the flight departed.
He asked for the forms again when he didn’t get them and allegedly backed the flight attendant into the door of an emergency exit and grabbed the attendant by the shoulder and began push
ing, the affidavit states.
The two struggled and the attendant was struck by Turnbull-Bolado’s arm or elbow.
It wasn’t apparent if the contact was accidental.
The attendant ducked beneath Turnbull-Bolado’s arm and Turnbull-Bolado returned to his seat.
The attendant called the cockpit to request an emergency landing.
“The whole story hasn’t been told,” Zamora said after Friday’s hearing.
He declined to go into detail about his client’s version of the encounter.
