AUSTIN lAP) — Gov. Ann
Richards says the felony indictment
of a nursing home corporation in the
deaths of two patients puts teeth into
state efforts to ensure patient safety.
“The governor tallnng about it is
not enough.” Richards said Tuesday,
the day after Attorney General Dan
Morales announced indictments
against a corporation and individuals.
“I cannot applaud Dan Morales
enough for what he is doing ... It says
this is not just talk, this is not just
rhetoric but now we’re getting seri-
ous,” she said.
Morales on Monday announced
indictments against Texas Health
Enterprises. Inc. of Denton. The cor-
poration owns the Amarillo nursing
home where the two patients were
Texas Health Enterprises is the
third-largest nursing home corpora-
tion in the state, andlhe ninth-fargest
in the nation. Morales said. The cor-
poration also operates homes in Iowa,
Oklahoma, Michigan and New Mex-
Morales said the action marked the
first time the state has indicted a
major nursing home corporation
under a law against injury to elderly
people and invalids. The attorney
general’s office said the law was
strengthened in 1989 to make it easier
to bring such charges, by adding the
One indictment against the compa-
ny alleged injury to an invalid; one,
injury to an elderly person; and 13
that the corporation tampered with a
government document, the attorney
general’s office said.
The attorney general alleges that
corporate officers falsified and fabri-
cated records related to in-service
training of nursing home employees.
The company said in a statement
that it expected to be exonerated,
along with its employees. Eight indi-
viduals were indicted by the Potter
County grand jury in the deaths.
“Texas Health Enterprises, Inc. is
and always has been committed to the
delivery of quality nursing services in
all of its nursing homes in Texas. The
company intends to continue doing so
well into the future,” the corporation

AUSTIN (AP) Stare officials
have accused the federal government
of trying to stampede Texas into
becoming a permanent dump for tons
of plutonium from nuclear disarma-
“There has simply never been a
greater potential for environmental
disaster in Texas than is presented
here,” Attorney General Dan Morales
He said that the Department of
Energy was probably already stock-
piling plutonium from nuclear war-
heads at the Pantex Plant, 25 miles
northeast of Amarillo.
“The Department of Energy
appears to be heading toward the ulti-
mate decision that Texas is going to
be. indeed the permanent longterm
nuclear disposal site for all of the
American weapons built up during
the Cold War,” Morales said.
Last week, federal officials told
Congress that the plant could become
the storage center for more than half
of the 220,000 pounds of plutonium
tha.t the United States has manufac-
tured since 1944.
The DOE said it did not need per-
mission from the state of Texas to
stockpile the toxic, radioactive metal
that triggers thermonuclear explo-
“We simply intend to do every-
thing we possibly can to ensure that
Texas does not become the final
dumping ground for 50 years worth
of accumulation of thermonuclear

Tilton services prove elaborate
entertainment for the faithful
DAI.LAS (AP) — Backed-by a “Tonight Show” qual-
ity orchestra and a Caesar’s Palace-like stage — or pulpit
— complete with Romanesque columns on each side,
Sunday morning at the Word of Faith World Outreach
Center has the look and feel of a frenetic Las Vegas show.
The Rev. Robert Tilton takes center stage, along with a
60-plus member choir, featured songleaders and assistant
pastor The Rev. Don Clowers.
For the first hour and a half during a Sunday service in
late February, musicians; singers and two video testimo-
nials from church members dominated the service.
By the time Tilton took over, the tithes — collected in
wastebasket-size paper buckets — were in. Then, the
“name-it and claiiq-it” style sermon began.
Tilton, who has refused to give interviews and often
speaks only through his lawyer, J.C. Joyce of Tulsa,
Okla., is a tall man with an ever-present grin and graying
Though the point of his sermon isn’t always clear, the
audience generally responds approvingly with applause
He peppers his message with such rambling statements
as: “When someone tries your faith in a court, first of all
it’s something you cannot see, but it can produce evidence
what you can see.
ji":..A person that doesn’t have faith cannot see what
you say you saw. Something like that”
Both Tilton and his wife, Martha “Marie” Tilton, are
expected to appear in federal court in Austin Wednesday
to ask a judge to extend a restraining order against the
state. The order, if granted, would continue to bar the state
attorney general’s office from access to the financial
records belonging to the couple’s ministry in the Dallas
suburb of Farmers Branch.
The state is investigating the ministry for possible
fraudulent fund-raising practices.
According to the television ratings service Arbitron,
Tilton’s “Success-N-Life”— the companion program to
Tilton’s “Sunday Morning Live” television show — is
seen in about 200,000 households daily nationwide. The
show is carried by LI 5 stations in 93 markets across the
