A Message From Mayor Charlie Cleves

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. The new year is shaping up to be a good one with all of the talented people that have stepped forward to fill the vacancies on the various boards. Steve Brun and Jack Meyer are the new appointees to the Board of Adjustments. Erin Wilkins, an attorney with her own law firm located at 510 Washington in Newport, will be on Planning and Zoning. Here is a reprint of the press release we issued the first week of January. I’m including this because it contains a lot of information on your new city leaders. City of Bellevue appoints new city administrator, city attorney. Bellevue residents Frank Warnock and David Fessler take on new roles with city. January 7, 2019 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE BELLEVUE, Ky. To everything, there is a season, and a time for every purpose. For Bellevue, the time for change is now. The citizens of Bellevue have spoken, and they want change, said Bellevue’s new mayor, Charlie Cleves. Bellevue elected a new mayor and four new city

council members on Nov. 6. Bellevue native and businessman Charlie Cleves stepped into his new role as mayor on the first morning of Jan. 2019, and he has already taken several steps to implement change. The city will have hired a new city administrator and a new city attorney -- both Bellevue residents – at its City Council meeting on Jan. 9. Frank Warnock is leaving his position as Assistant City Manager for the City of Covington to become Bellevue’s new city administrator. David Fessler will be appointed to serve as the new city attorney. “The four new council members and I never ran for office until last year, so it’s clear that the citizens of Bellevue wanted new leadership,” Cleves said. “We will be starting the new year with a new mayor, four new council members, a new city administrator, a new city attorney, a new focus, and a new management scheme.” The newly elected council members are Sean Fisher, Patrick Hogan, Shauna Kruse, and Scott Witte, who will join incumbents Ryan Salzman and Steve Guidugli on Bellevue City Council. “With the addition of Frank and Dave, we have a great management team who will work with our elected leaders and bring both experience and fresh positive ideas to the city,” said Cleves. Cleves said his primary focus as mayor will be eco-

nomic development. “Economic development is the cornerstone upon which the future success of our great city will be built,” he said. “We want positive change. We want a new beginning, new energy. The past administrations have built a great foundation, but we want to take it to the next level.” City Administrator Keith Spoelker resigned at the end of last year, but he will continue to serve as a consultant during a onemonth transition period through the end of January. “It’s time for a new beginning -- both for the city and for me personally,” Warnock said. “When I first moved to Bellevue in 1984 to attend Chase Law School, I lived above Boots’ Body Shop on Fairfield Avenue before moving to Harrison Avenue. My wife and I now live on Grandview Avenue. Things have changed quite a bit in Bellevue in the 35 years since we moved here.” Warnock served as Bellevue’s city attorney for 10 years before being appointed as Covington’s fulltime City Solicitor in 2005. Warnock is chairperson of the Local Government Committee of the Northern Kentucky Bar Association, president of the Boys & Girls Club in Newport, and in December, the Northern Kentucky City/County Management Association named him the 2018 City/ County Administrator of the Year. Cleves said Spoelker

School Board Rbyecognition Month Robb Smith, Superintendent

Each January, school boards around the state are recognized for their service to districts. And while they are certainly deserving, I am of the opinion that this should be a year round celebration. There is no higher calling than public service and the Bellevue Independent Schools board is the epitome of altruism. Our school board members – Dan Swope, Chris Groneck, Jenny Hazeres, Jenn Owens, and Julie Fischer – spent numerous hours each month in service to the community. These elected officials ensure that all district policy and use of taxpayer money goes directly to benefit the children of our community. They are tireless in their insistence that our resources produce outcomes that reveal personal and collective growth. I would be remiss if I did not mention Dan Sparks. Mr. Sparks is transitioning off the board this January after 17 years of service. A graduate of Bellevue High School, he has been, and will continue to be, a staunch advocate for all kids. I am grateful for the four and a half years of working under his guidance and leadership. He will be missed. Please join me in celebrating our board members, both this month and throughout the year.

Once a Tiger, Always a Tiger!

At the December 12, 2018 meeting of the Bellevue Board of Education, Chairperson of the Board, Dan Sparks was honored for his 17 years of service and dedication to the students, staff and community of Bellevue Independent Schools. Thank you, Mr. Sparks for all you have done for our school district!

by Terry Baute Code Enforcement Officer Good morning Bellevue Residents! We have had a light winter so far. I did miss snow at Christmas time, but it has been a pleasure not to shovel snow and scrap ice off the windshield. We have had our share of rain this past year. Most people are doing a good job with the garbage pick up. We still have a hand full of residents that don’t follow the rules. I hate to sound like a broken record, but garbage pick up has certain days for different areas. You cannot put out garbage

earlier than the night before pickup. It should be placed in an approved container. Plastic bags get ripped open and spread around the alleys. It looks bad for our city. Many of you have probably not noticed but our public works department is out every single day to police the alleys and streets. It is a constant battle to keep our city clean. Please do your part and help us to maintain a clean living environment. This is where we live, work and play. Do the right thing and obey the rules. Remember that if you start a project without a

proper permit, the job will be stopped and there is a penalty attached to the permit fee. If you are uncertain whether you need a permit for a project please call me and I will be more than happy to work with you and conduct an onsite visit. Contractors are required to obtain an occupational license. If they start a project without a license,

and a penalty will be added as well. I hope the weather cooperates with us to protect all of our plants. Nature works in mysterious ways. Now is the time to have your lawn mowers worked on. If you wait too long, the repair shops really get backed up and by the time you get the equipment back the grass is already out of control. One last thing is parking on unpaved surfaces. This is unacceptable and against the city ordinance. I don’t have a lot of complaints on this one, but it is enough to keep you busy with violation letters. Keep in mind that the city has parking grants for off street parking. If interested please contact the city for an application and we will walk you through the process. If you have any questions about projects, building permits, occupational license, please call our office and any of us will more than happy to assist you. We are here to help and offer assistance in any way we can. If in doubt, call 859-4318888!

I’m focused on what’s important.

served the city well during his tenure as city administrator, complimenting him for various development projects in the city, including Kent Lofts, riverfront developments and planning projects, and implementation of a Tax Increment Financing district. “Keith is a good person, and he helped manage Bellevue through some challenging times,” Cleves said. “I appreciate his service to the city but I think its time for some fresh energy and new ideas. “We plan to review all aspects of the structure and management of the city,” he continued, “and discuss better ways of providing a safe and clean environment and improving city services.” While Cleves is new to public office, he is no stranger to Bellevue. In fact, he is an integral part of the history and fabric of Bellevue, and he knows the city well. Until he retired, Cleves was the third-generation owner of Cleves & Lonnemann Jewelers, an 87-year-old business on Fairfield Avenue in Bellevue. His son, Michael, took over ownership of the store on Jan. 1, 2017, and now serves as the fourth generation of the Cleves family to own and operate the business. Cleves & Lonnemann opened in Bellevue in 1932

when Motch Jewelers in Covington laid off Ed Cleves, Sr. and Joe Lonnemann, Sr. during the Great Depression. The men then opened the Fairfield Avenue business, where they sold and repaired watches, clocks, jewelry, and fitted and repaired eyeglasses. Charlie Cleves’ father, Ed Cleves, Jr., began working the store July 1941 and took over the business from his father. Charlie Cleves also worked for his father, and as time passed, he expanded his role in the business and eventually took over as owner. Cleves is a graduate of Covington Latin School and earned a degree in mathematics from Northern Kentucky University in 1975. At 19 years old, fresh out of college, Cleves bought his first building in Bellevue. It was a four-unit rental house that he eventually used as collateral to purchase his interest in Cleves & Lonnemann. He currently owns eight buildings in Bellevue. Cleves married Mary Lynn in 1979. They reared five children -- Christy, Mike, Beth, Tony, and Danny – in the house they still live in on Fairfield Avenue. Cleves served as president of Bellevue Renaissance-Kentucky Main Street program, where he convinced other businesspeople to join him in buying some of the worst buildings

them. He also served nine years on the board of Mentoring Plus, an organization dedicated to helping challenged youth advance in education and employment. He serves on the Finance Committee of the Divine Mary Parish. He is a past board member of the Diocesan Board of Education. Cleves is past president of the American Watchmakers-Clockmakers Institute and is a member of the Woodrow Carpenter Enamel Foundation in Bellevue. David Fessler, the new city attorney, is a Bellevue native and current resident. He is a graduate of Bellevue High School, where he served as student council president, played on the 1977 state champion football team, and served as captain of the track team. In 2018, Fessler was inducted into the high school’s “Hall of Distinguished Alumni.” He currently serves as president of the Bellevue Education Foundation. Fessler graduated from Salmon P. Chase College of Law at Northern Kentucky University in 1986. He’s the senior partner of his own law firm – Fessler, Schneider & Grimme, LLP – where he focuses on civil litigation, federal cases, personal injury, and probate. In 2017 and 2018, the American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys named him one of the “10 Best Attorneys in Kentucky” in the area of personal injury for exceptional client service. He’s a member of the Northern Kentucky Bar Association, the Kentucky Bar Association, and the Kentucky Justice Association. I hope you are as excited about the coming year as am I. Some of the more important issues are: FEMA project, Harbor Greene, Bellevue Vets, 150th anniversary preparation, and improving the streetscape. Working together we can accomplish great things.

Brighton Center’s Employment Training Graduating

by Angela Krebs Brighton Center’s Center for Employment Training (CET) recently celebrated the 27-member fall 2018 graduating class. This graduation marks a milestone by welcoming the first graduates of the new Health Technologies Administration (HTA) skill division. In addition to the HTA trainees who participated in graduation, Brighton Center also celebrated the accomplishments of graduates in Business & Computer Technologies, Medical Assisting, and GED attainment. Since opening in 2007, 1,110 individuals have graduated from CET!

The Council on Occupational Education (COE) granted approval for the addition of HTA to Brighton Center’s job training facility and CET welcomed its first students to the program in January 2018. HTA trainees learn to work in administrative medical office facilities and utilize medical terminology, procedural and diagnostic codes to navigate various systems and appropriately communicate health and financial information. The instructional team focuses on helping trainees to master Microsoft applications, electronic medical records, anatomy & physiology, bill-

ing, coding and other concepts that will support them as they grow professionally. Trainees completing the course will meet the standards and qualifications needed to pass a certification examination through the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC). Additionally, they may become a Certified Professional Coder-Apprentice (CPC-A), or the National Health Association (NHA) and may become certified as an Electronic Health Record Specialist (CEHRS), Certified Medical Administrative Assistant (CMAA), or Certified Billing and Coding Specialist (CBCS).

The Greater Cincinnati Test Clinic extends an invitation to you to be tested free of any charge. Your intelligence and aptitude have everything to do with your income, your future, your personal relationships and your life. Such tests would ordinarily cost you $50. They are offered to you free of charge if you bring this slip with you. If you are not happy with life, you can find out why.

HTA fosters and promotes best practices in customer service and leadership in the field of Healthcare Administration and Healthcare Technology. Trainees receive instruction delivered through lecture, visual, and demonstrative learning….such as a “Mock Office” setting that integrates learning in administrative office duties, triage, billing, coding, and health information management. Brighton Center’s CET program provides training in high demand industry sectors that offer the opportunity for career advancement. Their approach is supported by the 2020 Jobs Outlook Regional Indicators report which states, “Among jobs paying $33,130 or more, 92% will require some combination of post-secondary education, on-the-job training, and/or work experience beyond one year.” CET’s high-level results are achieved by braiding four cornerstones which include Skill Training, Adult Education, Success Skills, and Career Coaching. All instruction is achieved with hands-on, self-paced training (utilizing contextual learning) that simulates work environments and integrates valuable projectbased learning. The experiential approach to classroom learning is complemented by workplace partnerships that welcome trainees at over 25 externship sites. CET takes a holistic view of those they serve…they bundle workforce development, financial services, and family and work supports to as-

Sky

Visions

by Alvena Stanfield Back when space launches began sixtyplus years ago we stared at TV screens for hours. Every word, every photo was awe-inspiring. We cheered when Neil Armstrong stepped onto the moon, only 238,855 miles from earth. We spent days engaged in all aspects of space travel and recovery. NASA and other research labs have gained skill and delved deeper into space. Over time, though, launches lost their shine. Most of us don’t know or care when launches occur or where they are headed. Maybe we need to rethink our attitude. On New Year’s Day a launch named “New Horizons” sent photos to earth from 4 billion miles away. New Horizons is continuing away from earth and is gaining speed. Astronomers believe they will receive photos from even further away. They are studying photos sent back of a 21-mile long item photographed directly in New Horizons’ flight path. Its two parts, looking like a snow man, may be ice, or not, may be a developing planet, or not. They named it Ultima Thule, a Latin expression meaning “beyond the borders of the known world.” Later this month there will be an exciting sky view we can see. A blood moon will be here, Sunday January 20 around 11:45 PM and gone by 12:43 AM, Jan. 21st. Earth, moon and sun will align, a total lunar eclipse. This causes the moon to turn red. There are good maps explaining why this happens on the web. Let’s stay up late, recapture the enthusiasm of the ancients and watch the free show overhead.

by Terri Baker ACO I have gotten my end of the year reports done. I work for 10 cities in Campbell County and in 2018 only picked up 80 dogs. That is down from 118 in 2017 and 119 in 2016. You can help your dog’s chances of not getting picked up. When I pick up a dog, the first thing I look for is a collar and tag. The next thing is a microchip. When possible the dog is returned to its owner. If an owner is not easily located they are impounded to the shelter. They will receive vaccines and dewormer and get scanned again for a microchip. If your pet has a tag you may get a call from the finder and your dog may never have to be picked up by animal control. Cats picked up this year was 145 down from 402 in 2017 and 309 in 2016. These totals show that our TrapNeuter-Return is working. Before we did TNR totals every year were any where from 465 to 190 in the past 15 years. Many of those cats unfortunately were euthanized. Now our shelter is not euthanizing and my totals have went down. That is great! Our shelter can micro-

chip your pet for only $10. If your pet can’t have on a tag then this is the next best thing. Many people who find pets get them scanned for a chip. Also another great place to search for your pet is online. Social media has helped get a lot of pets back home. I am a member of several Facebook groups to try and help owners reunite with their pets. Here is an example of some Facebook groups: Bellevue, Kentucky and Dayton, Kentucky Lost and Found Pets. Bellevue Alliance Dayton Kentucky Buzz Dayton, Kentucky-Voice of the Citizens Northern Kentucky lost and found pets NKY Lost and Found Pets Kentucky - Lost, Missing, Stolen or Found pets Northern Kentucky Pets Newport Ky lost and found pets Lost and found pets of Kentucky And many more! My goal is to keep your pet out of the shelter. Please keep your pets safe at home.
