Bill Clements — expressed “heartfelt and sincere gratitude for the contributions of the prairie chickens of Texas.” The resolution, on the eve of Sen ate debate of a proposed state bud get bill, had, perhaps, an underlying bite in designating the prairie chicken as the “official state grouse.” Clements in an interview with The Associated Press last week likened liberal Democratic senators to prai rie chickens thumping the ground in opposition to his own more conser vative spending proposals. “standing up and fighting, and for protecting their domain.” “Many species would be proud to be included in the prairie chicken family, if only they were intelligent enough to appreciate such a distinc tion,” the resolution said. Also, the resolution said in refer ence to the Senate’s proposed appro priations bill, “there is as much fat in the state budget as the skin on the proverbial lips of a chicken.” Lt. Gov. Bill Hobby said, “All in favor (of the resolution), signify by thumping. Those opposed thump twice. “My antenna tells me the thump ing period is about over .... Now, hopefully, we can get down to se rious business,” Clements said. Disgruntled senators on Monday criticized Clements’ use of the phrase “prairie chickens.” On Tuesday, the Senate adopted a resolution by Sen. Ray Farabee, D- Wichita Falls, that keeps prairie chickens on a slow boil. I he resolution noted that one senator had described prairie chick ens as “intelligent, vocal, and fru gal,” and said they were known for “The single thum|jers have it, the resolution is adoptee Clements at a Tuesday news con ference was reminded that senators had taken offense at being called “prairie chickens,” and the governor laughed and said, “You know, they’ve been called worse things.” “They kind of referred to you . . . as both an ostrich and a rattlesnake,” Clements was told. He laughed again and said, “I’m glad that they haven’t lost their sense of humor. I have a great admiration for both (ostrich and snake).” Police Beat The following were reported GRIM NAI.

Nancy Brown Negley Wellin, daughter of George S. Brown Sr., one of the founders of the construction giant, charged in a guardianship es tate suit that her daughter, Leslie Negley, 37, has given more than $50,000 to members of a group called the “Remnants.” Negley’s estate reportedly is worth $3 million, including hundreds of shares of stock in Exxon, Pennzoil and Coca-Cola. Bill Berchelmann, one of Negley’s attorneys, said he believes she is mentally competent and knows what she is doing with her wealth. Negley has been ordered to receive a psychiat ric evaluation, and a hearing to determine her competency is scheduled for Wednesday. In her suit, Wellin charges that the religious group broke off from a larger organization to form its own church. Lisa Ramos, a member of the religious group, acknowledges accepting expensive gifts includ ing cars and shopping trips to Dallas. “Leslie is trying to get out of her family be cause of how she is controlled and manipulated by her mother,” Ramos said. “Her mother always told her to keep her money for her,” Ramos said. “But Leslie kept saying, ‘Why can’t I share my money? It’s too much.’ ” Among the gifts Negley gave to her fellow s VOR 1 children and does members include $20,000 to Ramos, $20,00 I tendance traveler’s checks to her husband and a f da\ Caniaro to Ramos’ sister, court recordsindica: | judge "Leslie is not being taken advantage of, v require i mos said. “To be chosen, you have to livebvijthat they Scripture; and to live by the Scripture,youk lriculum. to give what you have.
