WASHINGTON -- TV producers Linda Bloodworth-Thomason and Harry Thomason took to the airwaves this week to complain of their "scurrilous" treatment by the press in the White House travel office flap, and to express sympathy for such former presidential intimates as Bebe Rebozo, Bert Lance and Alfred Bloomingdale.As White House aides disclaimed any role in the public relations offensive, the producers of "Designing Women," told interviewers on ABC's "Good Morning America" yesterday morning and CNN's "Larry King Live" Tuesday night that they have been mischaracterized as President Clinton's "sleazy immoral friends" since the affair began May 19.They insisted they were not "Hollywood" producers, but decent Arkansans who had made too much money to be interested in modest travel office commissions, as some have suggested.

A. Dutch Ruppersberger III and his top aides "are not allowing department heads to run their own departments," Thomason said, citing interference in job assignments and other issues.

The sudden resignation of Baltimore County Fire Chief Allen A. Thomason apparently was triggered by conflicting styles of the former Californian and a hard-charging county executive.Differences over departmental control, the 1996-1997 budget and the chief's absences may have pushed Thomason to apply for the Prince George's County chief's post -- a move that hastened his departure.Thomason, whose resignation was announced Tuesday, won't say why he wanted to leave a job he started less than a year ago.But once County Executive C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger III -- who says he prizes "loyalty and work ethic" above all other qualities -- found out about the Prince George's application several weeks ago, their relationship slipped quickly.

Saying she is "not stupid enough to be vindictive," "Designing Women" producer Linda Bloodworth-Thomason vowed Tuesday to reconsider a season-opening script replete with jabs at Suzanne Sugarbaker, the character played by Delta Burke, who left the show after a power struggle with the producers.A handful of TV critics who attended the filming of the episode last week in Hollywood came away with the impression that Ms. Bloodworth-Thomason, who wrote the script, was trying to pour salt on Ms. Burke's wound.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Pacific basketball team's media guide brags of a "New England-like campus" situated in the Northern California town of Stockton. The description goes on to say that Stockton is close enough to San Francisco for an evening out or to Lake Tahoe for a weekend trip. The school's public relations staff can be credited with the text, but coach Bob Thomason could serve on the board. He's in his 16th season at his alma mater and isn't bashful about his allegiance to the school.

The log cabin worked in cloth on the "healing quilt" looks just like the home where the woman sits on the porch talking of her husband. He built the porch and most of the cabin. He died about 18 months ago, leaving his wife adrift in painful sorrow. Emblems of his life are sewn onto the quilt like a coat of arms on a flag: the Yamaha he used to ride, the rifle he liked to shoot, the Fourth of July fireworks he loved to set off on his lawn, the cross he carved for his wife. She reads the quilt like a diary or a scrapbook.
