Hello, Jeff
I am on my way out the door to work right now, so I hope this makes
"kcontrol | Appearance & Themes | Colors"

After following that path, hover your cursor over the button that has
the text "Push Button" until you see a tool tip come up that says
"Button Text"  Left click with your mouse.

Look for an area that says "Widget Color"

With a Little (shouldn't take much) bit of experementation, you should
have your button text at whatever color you want.

If you need more clarification, email the list and I will get back to
you after I get back from work tonight.
