Limelight has way of finding congressman
* WASHINGTON (AP) — The limelight has a -way of finding Steve Stockman, a conservative Republican from Southeast Texas who has logged ll 12 days in the House of Representatives.
' The nondescript 38-year-old’s initial claim to fame Was his stunning upset last November of 21-term Democratic powerhouse Jack Brooks, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. That victory — on a shoestring budget — gave him immediate cachet in Jhe huge 73-member Republican freshman class.
* Stockman’s latest foray into national media coverage occurred this week after he played a small but intriguing role in the aftermath of the Oklahoma fcity bombing.
The Friendswood lawmaker confirmed Sunday that on the morning of the bombing his Washington office received a cryptic handwritten fax mentioning a bomb and Oklahoma. The fax, sent by an anti-gov-emment militia activist’s group in Michigan, initially was thrown away. After staffers learned of the bombing, they retrieved die fax and shared it with the FBI and National Rifle Association.
In separate news conferences Monday, Stockman and his chief of staff stressed that they believe the fax came in after the bombing, although the time stamp shows a time of 8:59 a.m. If that time is accurate, it would have been 7:59 a.m. in Oklahoma City, more than an hour before the 9:04 a.m.
“You get weird stuff all the time, so we didn’t think anything about it,” said Stockman, who is well known in gun circles as a staunch defender of gun rights.
In fact, Stockman owes his congressional career in large measure to gun owners’ dissatisfaction with Brooks, who had a near-perfect record of voting with the gun lobby until last year’s crime bill.
The gruff, cigar-chomping ex-Marine incurred the wrath of constituents in his blue-collar Gulf Coast district by supporting the crime bill — and its much-reviled ban on certain types of assault weapons.

)f#w bride among thoso killed In Oklahoma bombing
; SHERMAN, Texas (AP) — Six •weeks ago, 26-year-old Secret Service agent Cynthia Lynn Campbell Brown was married at Grace United Methodist Church.
On Monday, her bridal portrait stood on a table near her coffin in the same church where more than 400 people gathered to remember the Oklahoma City bombing victim.
Mrs. Brown, who married fellow agent Ron Brown on March 11, had been stationed in Oklahoma City, and was hoping soon to be transfeired to be near her husband iii Phoenix.
She was sitting in her ninth-floor office in the federal building when a huge explosion ripped through the structure almost a week ago, killing at least 79 people.

Banat* bill on juvenile crime focuses on “tough love”
AUSTIN (AP) — A “tough love” juvenile justice overhaul plan has been passed by the Texas Senate, which endorsed spending more money on steering youths away from crime than the House.
The Senate plan, passed unanimously Monday, returns to the State House for consideration of amendments.
lf they are rejected, a House-Senate conference committee would negotiate differences in the two bills.
‘This is a get-tough bill on juvenile delinquents. But more than that ... we have put some compassion into the bill as well,” said Sen. Chris Harris, R-Arlington, a sponsor of the
A big difference is $80.7 million worth of youth crime prevention and intervention programs in the Senate
They include providing operating funds for regional boot camps or treatment centers, and broadening a program for runaways, truants, at-risk youth and their families.
The additional funding, which includes about $30 million in federal dollars and the rest in state general revenue, still would have to be agreed to by a House-Senate conference committee on the two-year state government budget.
Ag Commissioner outlines stele's concerns with Fem Bill
LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Agriculture leaders from across Texas have drawn up nine recommendations they intend to offer to the U.S. Congress members writing the 1995 farm bill.
Texas Agriculture Commissioner Rick Perry labeled the recommendations as a specific and sweeping look at commodity provisions, trade, research and rural development.
Those priorities were expected to lead off a special field hearing convened here today by the U.S. House Agriculture Committee.
“It is a very complex group of issues, but I think we have drawn them together in a very clear and concise manner,” Perry said Monday.
Agriculture Committee Chairman Pat Roberts, R-Kansas, was scheduled to conduct the seven-hour hearing.
Bush appoints group to savo troubled agoncy
AUSTIN (AP) — Gov. George W. Bush has picked a top aide, a former House speaker and a businesswoman to take over the troubled Texas Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse.
He called it an agency “rocked by scandal."
If given expected Senate confirmation, the three will become the first conservators to take over a state government agency, Bush said.
“There’s been bad misuse of taxpayers’ money, and we won’t tolerate that in this state,” Bush said.
The governor said Monday that he expects the trio to “find out what’s wrong, what needs to be done to clean it up — and we will do so in short order.”
Conservatorship was recommended by legislative leaders after they determined that gross financial mismanagement was rampant at the drug and alcohol commission.
The recommendation came after audits and a Texas Rangers investigation concluded that the agency had failed to maintain proper control over assets, including state funds; failed to maintain adequate records; and misused state money.
Comments by Kaelin to author worry attorneys
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Brian “Kato” Kaelin provided his co-author with enough tawdry and damaging information about OJ. Simpson to give defense attorneys cause for alarm and prosecutors reason to rejoice.
In a 92-point book outline of his interviews, obtained by The Associated Press, Kaelin describes Simpson’s state of mind before and after the murders and says Nicole Brown Simpson feared her ex-husband would kill her.
But although the outline is damaging to the defense, it doesn’t appear to contradict Kaelin’s sworn testimony. Legal analysts say it would be risky for prosecutors to return Kaelin to the witness stand and confront him with the statements in the outline.
“I think they would make a big mistake by stalling everything for another week with Kato Kaelin, even though TV would love it,” said Loyola University law professor Stan Goldman.
With the case dragging and the sequestered jury becoming rebellious, Goldman said the prosecution may do better to proceed to the heart of its case: DNA evidence that allegedly links Simpson to the murders of Ms. Simpson and Ronald Goldman.
The outline by writer Marc Eliot, as well as 17 hours of taped interviews, have been subpoenaed by prosecutors and given to attorneys for both sides. The authenticity of the AP’s copy of the outline was confirmed by three sources.
In the outline, Eliot quotes Kaelin as saying Ms. Simpson “sexually tormented" her ex-husband during a trip to
Mexico in early 1994.
“She taunts him about his getting old, and losing his sexual prowess and confesses to Kato that the only reason she was ever with OJ. was purely physical,” the outline says.
“I can’t see you making love fives times a day when you’re 60 years old,” Kaelin said she told Simpson.
Kaelin said that Ms. Simpson told her privately: “One day, OJ. is going to kill me.”
On June 11, the day before the murders, Kaelin said he and Simpson watched the movie “The World According to Garp” and began talking about oral sex.
“This sends O.J. into a dark mood,” and Simpson began to reminisce about watching Ms. Simpson having sex with a boyfriend on her couch, the outline says.
Kaelin also said Simpson was lonely and moody the day of the slayings. When the two went to McDonald’s that night, Simpson wolfed down his burger in silence and later kept “staring out into space,” according to the outline.
The day after the murders, Eliot wrote, Simpson’s “stare melts Kato with fear” after Kaelin tells Simpson he didn’t see him go into the house after the McDonald’s trip, and therefore couldn’t help him with an alibi.
The statements to Eliot contrast with Kaelin’s dry, sometimes incoherent testimony, in which he downplayed any suggestion of trouble in the Simpsons’ relationship and anything unusual about Simplon’s behavior.

WE'RE FIGHTING DRUGS AND ALCOHOL WITH A SPECIAL AGENT.
Every year, thousands of Nationwide Insurance agents go back to high school to get students involved in the Nationwide Insurance Prom Promise. A program that gives kids the chance to commit to an alcohol and drug free prom night.
And while teenagers and insurance agents have been known to disagree on issues of music and fashion, there is one thing they can agree on. The importance of having a safe prom. That's why, Inst year alone, more

than 1.4 million students made the Prom Promise Pledge.
Some students may never understand why anyone would volunteer to go back to school. Fortunately for them, though, volunteering is something our agents feel strongly about. And that's exactly what makes them so special.
