Celebrate The Holidays…But Get Home Safely!

What if seven airplanes full of men, women and children crashed in one month, killing all on board? And what if this happened once a month, every month, year after year? Wouldn’t you want to know the cause of these frequent disasters? Wouldn’t you do everything possible to prevent this senseless loss of life? Well, here’s the kicker. Roughly this same number of people dies in the U.S. every year in DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) related crashes. Sadly, many families and friends have been lost in DWI related accidents right here in Lee’s Summit.

Letter to the Editor: Support for Governor Greitens

As the Chairman of the Missouri Association of Veterans Organizations, I'm grateful for new leadership in Missouri that fights for our veterans. These men and women deserve dignity, respect, and quality care. Unfortunately, too often, government fails them.

Families came forward with worries about conditions in the St. Louis Veterans home. The bureaucracy said everything was fine. Governor Greitens took action and found the truth.

The Evidence of Faith’s Substance: Being Thankful Part 4—How to Respond to God’s Provision

Romans 10:9-10 “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus Christ, and believe in your heart God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”

In 1833, Professor Simon Greenleaf became the Royall Professorship at Harvard University and, in 1846, succeeded Judge (later Justice) Joseph Story as Dane Professor of Law at Harvard. Greenleaf contributed extensively to the development of the Harvard Law School, including expansion of the Harvard Law Library. But he may be best known for his 1874 apologetic essay entitled “Testimony of the Evangelists Examined by the Rules of Evidence Administered in Courts of Justice”, where, after careful examination of the Gospels, he argued that the resurrection of Jesus Christ was not a hoax, myth or fiction but fact.

Cleaver Releases Statement Regarding His Vote on Impeachment of President Trump

Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, II released the following statement regarding his vote on the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

"Yesterday, I voted to table a resolution containing the articles of impeachment of President Donald Trump. I believe that this President has sent tasteless tweets, made crude and cruel comments, and embraced those who espouse hatred and division while pushing policies like the Trump tax cuts which benefit him and his children. However, I will not violate who I am by refusing to wait until the special counsel has completed his investigation..."

The Evidence of Faith’s Substance: Being Thankful Part 3 — Acknowledging God’s Provision for Our Sin


1Peter 3:18 “Christ suffered once for our sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God.”

British philosopher G. K. Chesterton was once asked by a newspaper reporter what was wrong with the world. He gave a very simple response: "I am." His answer would draw heavy criticism in American culture today, where we are fixated on self-esteem and self-fulfillment. When things don’t go our way, it’s can’t be our own fault. There must be a good excuse for why I have fallen short of where I thought I would be. I just need to find it. The self-esteem industry is ready and willing to help me find that excuse.

Gun Safety

Missourians enjoy the right to own, and carry firearms though the 2nd Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the Missouri Constitution, and state statutes. Firearms safety is an important part of firearms ownership for the armed citizen.

Firearm owner’s manuals provide instruction on methods to safely load, unload, use safeties, and fire that particular firearm. Professional instruction is also highly recommended. Most firearm retailers have trained staff capable of explaining the safe operation of firearms. The National Rifle Association (NRA) has tens of thousands of reputable certified firearm instructors across the nation. The Lee’s Summit Police Department (LSPD) firearm instructors receive NRA instructor certification.
