ABILENE, Kansas (AP) – A northeast Kansas couple has renewed a fight against an adult store along Interstate 70 west of Abilene that sells sex toys and explicit videos.

Phillip Cosby spearheaded protests and sought remedies after the Lion’s Den Superstore opened in 2003. He and his wife, Cathy, moved to the Kansas City area and worked for various groups that promote family values by fighting pornography and obscenity. They returned to Abilene a year ago.

Cosby says he has collected about 400 signatures on petitions seeking a grand jury to explore whether the store promotes obscenity.

Cosby is state director of the American Family Association of Kansas and Missouri. He has fought similar battles against adult stores in Missouri. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
