TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The Kansas Supreme Court may rule quickly on whether Democrat Chad Taylor must remain on the November Senate ballot because county officials must begin mailing ballots to overseas military personnel. But it may not be the end of the legal dispute. Republican Secretary of State Kris Kobach argues that even if he's forced to remove Taylor's name, Democrats are obligated to find another nominee. The court did not address that issue during Tuesday's arguments.

DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) - Bob Dole makes another homecoming trip to Kansas next week. The 91-year-old former senator will visit a dozen cities over three days beginning Monday in Dodge City. It's his eighth visit to the state this year.

HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) - A former bail bondsman has been found guilty of coercing women he bailed out of jail to have sex with him. A Reno County jury convicted 66-year-old Dwight Jurgens on six of nine felony counts. Prosecutors say Jurgens told four women he would revoke their bonds if they didn't have sex with him.

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas officials are holding a public hearing Wednesday on proposed signs at buildings where firearms are prohibited. Even though concealed carry is now legal, building owners may still ban people from carrying guns openly if they post signs.
