CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — Blustery winds prevented NASA from landing the space shuttle Atlantis in California today, and the astronauts were ordered to remain in space an extra day.
Mission Control first delayed the landing by I Va hours in hopes the winds would subside. But they didn’t, and flight directors decreed a Thursday morning touchdown at Edwards Air Force Base in the Mojave Desert.
"I hope you don’t mind if we ask you to stay up another day but we’re going to give up on today,” Mission Control’s Brian Duffy told the crew.
‘‘We understand, and I think that’s a good decision Brian. Thanks a lot,” replied Steve Nagel, mission commander.
The astronauts have enough supplies on board to stay up at least through Friday. High winds were expected again Thursday at Edwards, and the weather did not look favorable at the Kennedy Space Center backup site in Florida. Kennedy had not been considered for today.
Crosswinds had exceeded NASA’s limit of 17.3 mph by nearly double most of the morning in California.

629-9036CENTRAL TEXAS HEALTH RESEARCH _705-A Landa New BraunfelsStateDeficit of $13 billion warned
AUSTIN (AP) — State senators have been shown just how deep the red ink could run as they write a budget.
The lawmakers were told Tuesday that the budget deficit would hit $13 billion if all spending programs being sought by government agencies were approved.
Those requests aren’t wild-eyed ideas, but responsible proposals from boards and commissions controlled by appointees of former Republican Gov. Bill Gc-mcnts, Sen. John Montford said.
‘‘These are conservative, largely Republican appointees. And this is the budget that they have requested — a smooth $’.3 billion ... over available revenue,” said Montford, D-Lubbock.
Legislative leaders are struggling to convince voters that another tax increase may be needed to raise funds to balance the 1992-93 budget.
Lt. Gov. Bob Bullock is pushing for state personal and corporate income taxes. House Speaker Gib Lewis offered a no-new-taxes budget proposal but decried it as one that would have a ‘‘devastating impact on education, prisons, human services and all other state programs.”Federal disaster aid sought
AUSTIN (AP) — Gov. Ann Richards’ request for federal disaster aid said recent weather in Cameron County was so destructive that local and state governments do not have sufficient resources to respond.
Richards wrote President Bush on Tuesday, requesting that Bush declare a major disaster for Texas as a result of severe thunderstorms, flooding and tornadoes which occurred primarily in Cameron County on Friday and Saturday.
Additional counties may be added ‘‘as required,” Richards’ letter said.
The governor earlier sent a telegram to Bush and followed that with the more detailed letter.
Preliminary estimates show disaster-related, private nonagricultural damages of $100 million, Richards said, with at least $28.9 million eligible for aid under current law.Directory Assistance bank disabled

Southwestern Bell operators lost the ability for several hours Tuesday night to access directory information in area codes 214,817,903,806 and 915.Nation
