      Castle Airport Tower To Remain Open, For Now

      {}{}{}{} It looks like the air traffic control tower at a Merced County airport will be staying open, at least for a little while, anyway.

      {}{}{}{} The Federal Aviation Administration recently put out a list of air traffic control facilities across the country that could be shut down starting April 7, and the Castle Airport tower in Atwater was one of them.

      {}{}{} But, it seems the FAA has had a change of heart.

      {}{}{} The agency announced it will now postpone that closure till June 15th and will reconsider its decision after requests by several members of congress including valley congressman Jim Costa.
