Airport plans generate back-and-forth

Supporters and opponents of plans to build a new airport in Ennis off of U.S. 287 veered a public environmental hearing Thursday off course, turning discussion to possible benefits and perceived problems with airport project as a whole.

Business and civic leaders were largely for the project as a force to spur local industrial and economic health, while a handful of residents registered to speak against the project, mostly on subjects of cost and the need to acquire land owned by private residents.
