FOX San Antonio - Top Stories

It will be a few more weeks until adult entertainers will find out if a federal judge will say bikini tops or pasties.
On Tuesday the City of San Antonio and the owners of 13 gentlemen's clubs faced off in federal court.
The clubs say that a new city ordinance restricts female entertainers from expressing their artistic expression by making them wear bikini tops.
The city argues that this is what the community wants since these clubs create crime and property values to drop.
A Fox San Antonio undercover video last year is what attorneys believe forced the city to tighten ordinances on gentlemen's clubs.
The video was from the Player's Club of West S.A. which is next to St. John Bosco School.
A little too close for the Salesian nuns, their children and their hospice.
Judge Fred Biery said it would be status quo until he makes a decision in the next few weeks.

High winds derail 47 BNSF cars in Texas Panhandle
June 18, 2013 15:53 GMT
FRIONA, Texas (AP) -- A rail line in the Texas Panhandle has reopened after storms packing winds strong enough to form a tornado overturned more than 40 BNSF Railway cars.
BNSF spokesman Joe Faust said Tuesday that nobody was hurt in the derailment between Friona (free-OHN'-uh) and Summerfield.
Faust says 47 cars that were empty or carrying various freight derailed before dawn Monday. He says 42 cars ended up on their sides. No cargo spilled on the 71-car train traveling from Clovis, N.M., to Amarillo.
The National Weather Service in Lubbock estimates winds gusted up to 100 mph during the derailment. Forecaster John Lipe (lype) says sometimes the outflow from thunderstorms can produce such winds. EF1 tornadoes carry winds from 86 mph to 110 mph.
Fort Worth-based BNSF reopened the line around midnight Monday.
