Presenting The 3rd Annual Kickin’ It With Cops Fundraiser for Special Olympics

Police officers from several different departments, and martial artists from all over the metro will meet on Saturday, June 10, at the Lee’s Summit North High School football field for the 3rd Annual Kickin’ It With Cops fundraiser from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

I came up with the idea in 2015 when chatting with several friends and officers who participate in the Super Polar Plunge each year. To plunge into Longview Lake 24 times in 24 hours, in January, these brave individuals must raise $2,500 each for Special Olympics. I’ve decided to help with the effort!

Kickin’ It With Cops is a kickathon and a very simple concept. Each martial artist pledges to perform 1,000 kicks, and they receive donations for each kick. For example, someone may pledge $2 per kick, which would be a $20 tax-deductible donation to SOMO (Special Olympics Missouri). We all meet on the field and kick in unison for an impressive sight.

Lee’s Summit Lawyers Bring Religious Freedom Case Before the Supreme Court

The U.S. Supreme Court is set to decide one of the biggest religious freedom cases in decades. The legal team for the church in Trinity Lutheran Church of Columbia vs. Comer, includes a father and son whose law office is based in Downtown Lee’s Summit. 

At issue is a Missouri Constitutional section called the  “Blaine Amendment,” adopted in 1875, which states that money from the public treasury cannot, directly or indirectly, go to aid a church, pastor, or religious entity. 

Based on a principle of strict separation of church and state, similar clauses appear in 38 other state constitutions, giving this case its national significance.
