Candidates submitted to the Bush administration are Wichita attorney Eric Melgren, Overland Park attorney Bruce Keplinger and U.S. bankruptcy Judge Julie A. Robinson, according to a GOP congressional source who spoke on condition of anonymity The White House has asked senators to suggest three names for each judgeship. Bush T LAW ENFORCEMENT must make the nomination, although nominees are customarily recommended by a state's senior senator, who shepherds a candidate through Senate confirmation. As the state's senior senator, Republican Sam Brownback named the three for White House consideration in an April 24 letter to Bush that was also signed by Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., the source said. However, Brownback spokesman Erik Hotmire refused to confirm the recommendations, saying the senator will wait for a presidential announcement. Neither senator would provide a copy of the letter. To advise him on candidates for judicial jobs — including U.S. attorney and U.S. Marshal — Brownback in February formed an eight-member advisory panel. The judicial candi­ dates were listed alphabetically, the source said, and Brownback did not indicate a preference. Already under consideration for U.S. attorney, several sources have said, is former state Rep. Phill Kline, who lost a heated race to unseat Democratic Rep. Dennis Moore in the suburbs around Kansas City, Kan., that make up the 3rd District. However, Bush has not yet announced his intention to nominate Kline. The last such vacancy was filled in 1999 and went to U.S. District Judge Carlos Murguia, who had been a Wyandotte County district judge. President Clinton tried unsuccessfully to fill the current vacancy, nominating attorney Gary Sebelius for the job in 2000. Sebelius is married to Democratic state Insurance Commissioner Kathleen Sebelius. But his nomination died because Brownback apparently refused to let it move forward. At the time, Senate Republicans were blocking Clinton nominees as he finished his term and they eyed the possibility of regaining the White House. Now a similar dispute is raging in the Senate Judiciary Committee over whether Democrats can block Bush's upcoming nominees. Brownback is among the panel's members. Among the candidates for the Kansas vacancy, Melgren practices with the Wichita firm of Foulston and Siefkin and has been involved with and contributed to Brownback's campaigns as well as contributing to Rep. Todd Tiahrt, R-Kan., according to Federal Election Commission records. High-speed chase ends in 2 arrests in Abilene Two Junction City residents allegedly tried to hide in bushes By The Salina Journal ABILENE — Two Junction. City residents were arrested on foot early Friday as they reportedly hid near the Eisenhower Center after a high­ speed chase ended when the car they were in overturned. About 2 a.m., Dickinson County Sheriff's Deputy Steve Schwab saw a car traveling about 90 mph on Interstate Highway 70 near Chapman. The car matched the description of a car that eluded officers earlier in Junction City after it ran a stop sign. Schwab managed to pull the car over in northeast Abilene, but it sped off again before the occupants could be arrested, Sheriff Curt Bennett said. The car then hit a Dumpster, went out of control and rolled near the railroad tracks on South Campbell Street. The driver and a passenger fled on foot. Officers using a thermal imaging camera used to find people in burning buildings found the couple hiding in bushes near the Eisenhower Center. They were taken into custody without incident. Bennett said the car be. longed to an Abilene resident. "Whether he was returning the car, I really don't know," Bennett said. Arrested were Issac King, 20, and Yolanda Jones, 21. Authorities believe King was the driver. The couple were arrested on suspicion of multiple traffic offenses, including driving under the influence and felony reckless driving, Bennett said. Bond for each was set at $10,000. Budget / New plan may be doomed FROM PAGE B1 Friday was the 10th day since legislators returned from their annual spring break and the 95th calendar day of the 2001 session. Only the "wrap-up session" in 1991 was longer, at 12 days. "I think they're thinking we won't want to work if we don't get paid," said Rep. Doug Mays, R-Topeka, who was handing out the buttons. "For some of us, it's a badge of honor" Sen. David Adkins, R-Leawood, said Friday the 2001 session "all but has a bow put on it. At this point it's in the final stages," and he was hopeful to return to Leawood today. The budget does not include a general tax increase, he said, "but you don't want to get caught speeding." The senator said fines on all traffic violations will triple. "You really don't want to pass a school bus," Adkins said. He said the amount of extra funds the state expected to raise from traffic violations is based on current numbers of citations given to motorists. The negotiators' budget plan would cut about $16 million in spending from the $4.66 billion in state general fund appropriations already approved for fiscal 2002. The general fund holds most state tax revenues and is where the budget gap exists. But the plan relies most heavily on financial maneuvers. It shifts expenses from the general fund to other funds, most notably by tapping $51 million in federal nursing home funds. "We just had a collection of difficult choices to make, and we did the best we could," said Adkins, one of the negotiators. Gov. Bill Graves had proposed $117.6 million in tax increases to help close the hole in the budget and raise extra money for education. He also told legislators he would not accept any plan that cut spend­ ing deeply in fiscal 2002 and left problems for fiscal 2003. BRAKE Service M&M Tire & Auto <S> 263-7110 CCMTCR 4D0N.
