Dallas is the hub. and it s difficult to get to San Antonio and Austin, and many corporations mentioned that in looking at this area for possible relocation ” Cisneros said San Antonio and Austin need to encourage airlines to provide more direct flights between the two cities and such other major cities as New York. Chicago Washington and San Francisco "In the longer run. it seems to me the right thing to do is to build regional facilities Seventy five miles between the two cities might tx* a lit tie far hut with transportation technology growing, it could be easier in a few years,’’ Cisneros said Meanwhile he said, the Austin City Council has to make decisions about serving city air traffic needs for the next IO years and longer i'm perfectly willing to talk to him.” Cooksey said of Cisneros. “But our initiative, whatever it is. has to include a solution to our problem from now until 2020 They have already solved their problem during that time frame.” Turkeys topple from totaled truck Turkeys spill from a truck on Interstate 35 The accident, which occurred about 5 30 a rn near the Schwab Road exit, diverted traffic to the access road to the FM 2252 exit while workers picked up the turkeys and cleaned up the spilled fuel John Lattimore with the Texas Department of Health and a meat inspector went to the scene to tell clean up crews what to do with the LCSUC KWfWAiOT xfRAiD/eitung turkeys Troopers said several passersby offered to take the birds home with them An impromptu turkey tumble halted traffic on Interstate 35 early this morning after a tractor-trailer rig slammed into a parked truck full of frozen Butterballs Both drivers were injured and several miles of southbound Interstate 35 were closed for about two hours The drivers of the vehicles were hospitalized this morning One was transported to McKenna Memorial Hospital The other driver was transported to Northeast Baptist Hospital in San Antonio The drivers’ names and conditions were not available at presstime Department of Public Safety Trooper Scott Haag said the driver of the truck carrying the turkeys was asleep in the truck He had pulled his truck, which had flashing lights, to the side of the highw ay The other driver reportedly fell asleep, swerved to the right and slammed into the rear of the truck, sending about mw frozen turkeys fly mg all over the highway Diesel fuel and hydraulic fluid also leaked onto the roadway, said a Com al County Sheriff’s Department spokesman ;
