MAYOR'S MESSAGE

Welcome to Bellevue! On behalf of the Bellevue City Council and all our residents, I am excited to welcome and invite you to experience all that our great community has to offer. Here in the heart of the Great Plains, Bellevue sits on rolling hills overlooking the Missouri River. Our citizens enjoy a lifestyle that blends the latest in entertainment and leisure activities with an old-fashioned friendliness. Our economy is growing and encompasses both small businesses and large corporations. Bellevue has a strong technology infrastructure that supports growth and opportunity, and we continue to demonstrate to developers that “Bellevue is Open for Business.� We are excited about the new Beardmore Event Center of Bellevue and the attached Courtyard by Marriott hotel, which opened last summer. This brand-new facility has hosted events such as weddings, banquets, meetings and conferences which have let thousands of people experience Bellevue. The City is also looking forward to the continued construction of a mixed-use development at Fort Crook and Cornhusker Roads, the redevelopment of the Olde Towne area and industrial development along the highway 34 Corridor south of Offutt Air Force Base. We continue to have new residential developments come to the City Council for approval, and at the same time we are working diligently to seek out other economic development opportunities to help enhance our quality of life. Low unemployment, low cost of living, low utility rates, low crime rates, great public schools and a nationally recognized university are

hallmarks of our city. With more than 600 acres of parks, wooded and paved trails that stretch for miles, numerous golf courses and dozens of recreational fields, our city offers a wide variety of recreational activities for all ages. Bellevue is a patriotic city and proud to be the home of Offutt Air Force Base. The Bellevue/Offutt community is excited about the construction of the new STRATCOM Headquarters, which will benefit the entire community and allow people from all over the country to experience Bellevue's hospitality while protecting our freedom. I think you will find that Bellevue provides a rare combination of a modern lifestyle while maintaining its roots in mid-western hospitality. Citizens gather together at numerous parades and festivals throughout the year including the annual Arrows to Aerospace and Veterans parades and our Riverfest Community Festival and Sanctioned BBQ contest, all of which brings thousands of people from the metro area down to the riverfront every summer to enjoy great music and food.

OFFUTT COMMANDER'S MESSAGE

A supportive community Welcome to the Bellevue-Offutt Community, home of the “Fightin’ Fifty-Fifth!” The 55th Wing’s mission is to provide dominant intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance (ISR), electronic attack (EA) and agile combat support to national leadership and warfighters across the spectrum of conflict — any time, any place. Offutt Air Force Base is home to the largest wing in Air Combat Command and hosts 51 associate units, including Headquarters U.S. Strategic Command, 557th Weather Wing, 595th Command and Control Group and the Heartland of America Band. Together, Team Offutt works on behalf of the American people to ensure we meet the expectations of America’s senior leaders. Since the base was first founded in 1890, Offutt has enjoyed a positive relationship with the local community. Although our military demands have changed in an ever-evolving world, the support we receive from the community has been unwavering. It is commonplace to hear a thank-you passed to military members or be told somebody has prayed for a deployed Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Marine or civilian or see the local population standing proudly while our National Anthem plays. We have been given a distinct honor to serve at Offutt Air Force Base and are encouraged to stand alongside a city with the caliber of Bellevue. As my time as commander of the Fightin’ Fifty-Fifth concludes this summer, my family and I feel grateful to have had the opportunity to serve with this extraordinary military community and will remember the experience with warm regard. The community support is second-tonone. I know you’ll soon agree that this is an incredible community to call home.

Sincerely, George M. Reynolds Colonel, USAF Commander, 55th Wing

BELLEVUE HISTORY

Explore Nebraska’s birthplace One-hundred-fifty years ago, the Territory of Nebraska became the State of Nebraska. Bellevue already had been an incorporated community for a decade. Its origins began as a fur trading post dating back to at least 1822. The oldest continuous settlement in Nebraska was little more than open prairie and woodland. Native Americans, members of the Otoe and Omaha tribes, lived near the Missouri River and Papillion Creek. Less than 20 years had gone by since the Lewis and Clark Expedition had passed through the area. From this sparse setting grew Nebraska’s third largest city. The most notable individual to spearhead much of the effort, Peter Sarpy, was a fur trader, trading post proprietor, ferry operator, businessman, jack-of-all-trades, and ultimately the county namesake. During Sarpy’s time, pioneers were headed out west. In an effort to convince some of them that there was no better place to establish roots, Sarpy aided in creating the Bellevue Town Company with the town officially incorporating in 1855. There was further cause for celebration when Bellevue became the county seat for the newly established Sarpy County in 1857. The original courthouse still survives at the corner of Main Street and Mission Avenue. Prospects were high for the fledgling community. In its first few years, it was anticipated the city would become the Nebraska Territorial Capital and the crossing site over the Missouri River for America’s transcontinental railroad. One-hundred years ago, America enlisted in World War I and entered the fighting already in progress “over there.” During the war, Fort Crook, present-day Offutt Air Force Base, served as a training base for its first aerial unit. Not airplanes, but the 61st Balloon Observation Company, which reported for duty on September 10, 1918. They never made it overseas as their training was cut short when the war ended in November 1918. Others however did make the voyage overseas, including a number of Bellevue native sons. Several would forever remain in France. In the wake of the war, a new name was introduced at the military installation, the Offutt Flying Field at Fort Crook, named in honor of Jarvis Offutt, a local pilot killed in the conflict.

A vintage scene from Fort Crook, now known as Offutt Air Force Base.

Fort Crook would eventually become a major airbase. The base was selected as a site for the Martin Bomber Plant during the onset of World War II. More than 2,000 bombers were produced at the plant. Fontenelle Hall at Bellevue College in the early 1900s.

BELLEVUE HISTORY Sarpy County Museum The museum is located at 2402 Clay St. For hours, programs and other information, go to www.sarpymuseum.org; or call 402-292-1880.

Historical points of interest Historic First Presbyterian Church 2002 Franklin St. Built in 1856, the church is the oldest in Nebraska. The church was regularly used for 100 years from 1858 until 1958 when the congregation outgrew the building. It featured beautiful stained glass windows, 19th century locally crafted oak pews and elevated pulpit. Mission Avenue has long been the hub of Bellevue. Today Olde Towne is home to several businesses, including Bellevue Little Theatre which is housed in the old Roxy movie theater seen in this photo.

Although the first air mission had been brief, Fort Crook would eventually become a major airbase. The base was selected as a site for the Martin Bomber Plant during the onset of World War II. Ground was broken in March 1941. Overnight, the quaint onetime fur trading town of Bellevue had become a sprawling, active community and its growth has not stopped. At its height, more than 14,000 people were employed at the factory. Forty percent of them were women and more than 700 were African-American. More than 2,000 bombers were produced at the plant, including the Enola Gay and Bockscar which were used to drop atomic bombs that ended World War II. Building D and several other structures from this time still serve a variety of purposes at Offutt. Fifty years ago, America was again at war; this time in Southeast Asia. At Offutt Air Force Base, Strategic Air Command, the nerve center of America’s strategic nuclear arsenal was highly active within the backdrop of the Cold War. Around-the-clock operations

took place as the EC-135 Looking Glass took to the skies during this era of heightened tensions. The 55th Wing, the current and longtime host unit of the base, had been stationed at Offutt for little more than a year. Its personnel and their families were quickly settling into the Bellevue-Offutt community as the state came together to take part in its centennial celebration. Today, Bellevue’s historical past has created a solid foundation for its future. From its humble beginnings as a cluster of buildings associated with a trading post to third largest city in Nebraska and significant economic player, Bellevue has been on a remarkable journey. It has been one with not only just a rich local history, but one that is intertwined with history on a national and even international level. As Nebraskans celebrate 150 years of statehood, the history of Bellevue from arrows to aerospace is something of which we should be proud. Ben Justman Executive Director Sarpy County Museum

14 | Bellevue First | www.BellevueNebraska.com

Fontenelle Bank 212 Main St. Built originally as a bank in 1856, Fontenelle Bank soon became the first Sarpy County Courthouse for the new county in 1857. It later served as Bellevue City Hall from 1875 through 1959. It has been restored to resemble its earliest historical days, complete with oak teller cages, walk in-vault, and period era items. Log Cabin 1805 Hancock St. The cabin, built in the mid 1830s is one of the oldest buildings in the state. The structure was home to a Native American Chief, early Sarpy County judge, and a Civil War veteran and his wife. Older than nearly all similar log cabins and structures, the historic log cabin is on the National Register of Historic Landmarks. Train Caboose 2402 Clay St. The restored Union Pacific train caboose was relocated to the museum from nearby Springfield, Nebraska and helps to honor the rich railroad history of Sarpy County. Train Depot 2402 Clay St. The oldest still standing train depot in Nebraska is adjacent to the museum. It was built in 1869 and relocated to its present location in 1987. It was built by the Omaha Southwestern Railroad and later served as the Burlington Railroad depot.


50 Years. 50,000 Leaders. When Bellevue University opened its doors in 1966, it opened the doors of opportunity to all people. Since then, extraordinary efforts have transformed the futures of more than 50,000 graduates. And today our university thrives as a remarkable community where leaders are built and lives are changed. Today our graduates are making a difference on the job, in their communities, and for our country. Perhaps the Bellevue business leaders who founded the university would be surprised at the success we’ve achieved in preparing the next generation of productive high performers and informed citizens. They certainly would be gratified. Thank You Bellevue.

Paul Lambert wears many hats. An ambassador for the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce, Lambert works at Jeff Henry Chevrolet in Plattsmouth and is also the Mayor of Plattsmouth. Lambert enjoys being around people and other businesses. Often at ribbon cuttings and other community and chamber events, he tries to get involved with many activities. “I guess this is my hobby,” said Lambert. “I’m out to make the community a better place. That is my goal.” As an ambassador, Lambert helps put a face with the chamber by supporting new members and informing others of what the chamber does. “There are many benefits of being a member,” he said. “We are there to help.” Lambert was honored to be chosen for this award, in part because of his respect for those who have received the award previously. “It meant a lot to me to receive that honor,” he said.

Ben Justman has been involved with the Bellevue Chamber since his first day as executive director of the Sarpy County Museum, the museum which in turn has a long history of being involved with the chamber. Justman has guided many tours over the years for Leadership Bellevue classes. The roughly half-day tours take participants through the museum and to other historical sites in Bellevue and tell the 160 plus years of local history. The director enjoyed his time with the Leadership Bellevue class. He saw places and connected with others that he would not typically have. Justman said he was both humbled and appreciative of the chamber award. “It came as a surprise,’ he said. The museum is a small operation. With only Justman and a part-time employee, it relies heavily on volunteers. “We can’t do it without community partners and involvement,” he said.

Other places she has donated her time include, the Bellevue Little Theatre, the Durham Museum, the Rose Theater, the Mormon Trail Center and Lauritzen Gardens. She has also been recognized for her efforts as volunteer of the year and ambassador of the year.

A long-time supporter of the Bellevue and Offutt community that it serves, the bank has worked to give back by encouraging staff at both branches to volunteer in the community. Employees volunteer at RiverFest, with Habitat for Humanity and for other numerous organizations. “It’s all about giving back to our community,” said Andrews.

Dr. Adam Behm 3503 Samson Way, No. 115 Bellevue, NE 68123 behmmuscleandjoint@gmail.com After opening in July 2015, Dr. Adam Behm has seen month-after-month increase of clients at his clinic, Behm Muscle & Joint Clinic. He chose to open his business in Bellevue because no other practice was doing exactly what he does. With a science exercise background, Behm wanted to combine physical therapy with chiropractic care. He uses techniques that help with chronic and acute pain, break up scar tissue, treat some types of sports injuries and more. Behm is active in the chamber and had joined before he opened his clinic. “I wasn’t expecting to get the award,” he said. “But it was great to get that honor.”

This years marks the 20th Anniversary for A-Relief Services, and owner Rob French couldn’t be happier. “It’s rewarding to know that our “Passionate Pursuit of the Perfect Porta-Potty” hasn’t gone unnoticed by our peers and the community,” he said. Surprised to be honored, French pointed out the other finalist for the award is an “outstanding organization.” The company has been present for many events not just in Bellevue, but across the greater Metro area. “Everything from the Offutt Air Show and Bellevue’s Riverfest community festival to rural weddings and backyard graduation parties. Most weekends from spring through fall A-Relief has 150-350 special event units out at special events of all sizes,” said French.

Marathon Ventures has been located on Fort Crook Road since it located its corporate headquarters there in 2013 and brought its production facility to the site the following year. It is the corporate home of Herman’s Nut House, Maggies’ Gourmet Popcorn and Pear’s Gourmet Coffee among other snack foods. The company also has many private label customers, including some of the top retailers in the country. “It’s never our intention to seek out recognition,” said company president, John Larsen, of the small business award. “But being recognized

is affirming.” The company has been active in the Bellevue/Offutt community, often making donations of gift baskets as silent auction items for fundraisers for area nonprofits and other community events. The company is also supportive of other community events and groups such as the bike trail on Fort Crook Road and the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and various marathons. “We are very pleased to be in Bellevue,” said Larsen. And with plans for expansion at its current location, the company should be a positive for the Bellevue community for years to come.

St. Matthew is the first AdvancED and NCEA-accredited Catholic school in Sarpy County. James Daro, principal, explained the school’s unique background. “In the ’60s families at Offutt and Strategic Air Command could not find a Catholic school for their kids so they decided to build their own,” he said. Daro added that while at one time 100 percent of the students were from military families, now that number is about 40 percent. “St. Matthew’s has made a connection to local families.” St. Mary’s Catholic School serves pre-kindergarteners through eighth graders at Bellevue schools with a mission of providing an education that nurtures students' hearts and minds to become servants in the community.

BELLEVUE LIVING surrounds the operations. I sit on a number of economic and planning committees and there are some tremendous growth activities brewing, and schools blossoming with new talent every day. Yet the city of Bellevue is and always will be very well served by the close-knit "family feel" that it never seems to outgrow.” Safarik also knows what makes Bellevue unique. “Bellevue has more established neighborhoods as well as new opportunities that are springing up and out of the ground and business leader minds every day to improve the economic and family traditions that are rich in this community setting. The mix of old and new and the diverse cultures add to the excitement for drawing new businesses and growing neighborhoods that add to the vitality of sense of well being and contentment to see the community of Bellevue thrive and prosper.” Apartment living Apartment living in Bellevue offers many options.

BELLEVUE LIVING apartment living is so special. “Bellevue is a fantastic location for folks who love the conveniences of a city, but the smaller-town feel. While many modern conveniences can be found right here in Bellevue (dining, shopping, entertainment), it is still situated outside the city. We have incredible parks, trails, and plenty of wide-open spaces to offer to people still wanting that slower pace of life. Downtown Omaha is less than 15 minutes away, allowing us to have a night on the town, visit the zoo, hit up the College World Series, and so on, without having to deal with the daily grind of Omaha traffic and noise.” Dropinski, who been helping people find the right apartment for over 16 years, has seen some great changes in Bellevue over the years. “While Bellevue used to be seen as corn fields or an older part of town, it now offers the same contemporary luxuries as many areas in Omaha do: upscale shopping, Twin Creek Cinema offers some of the best theaters in the metropolitan area, restaurants and coffee shops have popped up all over the place. The same can be said for apartment living in Bellevue; 10 to 20 years ago, only a handful of apartment complexes were in the area. You can now find luxury living in Bellevue, with fantastic amenities and options.” And The Pavilion at Twin Creek is right in that mix. “We offer luxury living in the heart of Bellevue and Papillion. We have the outstanding amenities residents are looking for – elevators, spacious floor plans, pool, incredible 24-hour gym and business center, a half-acre dog park, and more! Our property nestles right up to the amazing trail system, where residents can enjoy the Keystone Trail, Bellevue Loop, and Papio Trail within walking distance.” Retirement living Richmont Senior Living is the perfect place for those looking for the ultimate in worry-free living and care. Designed to eliminate the work, worry and responsibility

that accompany home ownership, the Villas at Richmont offer open floor plans, 2-car garages, main-floor laundry rooms and more. A wide variety of amenities and community events are available to all residents on campus. Richmont Village Independent Living offers one- and two-bedroom apartments. With large, comfortable common areas and numerous amenities, residents feel right at home. Services include continental breakfast, housekeeping and more. At Richmont Terrace Assisted Living studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments are available and six levels of care are offered to meet ongoing needs. A Memory Care program is available in a controlled environment that is designed for persons with dementia. Residents of Richmont Senior Living can meet new people and develop new friendships. Residents can also pursue interests and hobbies both old and new without giving up their personal independence. And they can enjoy restaurant service-style meals, housekeeping services and various degrees of care from a highly trained, personal staff. — Leah Parodi

Nebraska Medicine — Bellevue is a full-service hospital offering comprehensive patient services that include cardiology and cancer care, lab testing, intensive care, inpatient and outpatient surgery, obstetrics and a newly expanded 24/7 emergency care department. The hospital recently expanded its emergency department, increasing patient capacity by 50 percent.

The increased capacity has enhanced our ability to reduce wait times and keep people comfortable who

BELLEVUE HEALTH CARE may be waiting for a hospital bed.” The emergency expansion is just one way that the hospital provides great care for Bellevue and a vital reason for its location in the community. “It’s important for Bellevue to have its own hospital as it’s the third largest city in Nebraska, other than Memorial Stadium on game days. We especially take pride in working alongside Ehrling Bergquist to keep our airmen and their families healthy.” And Nebraska Medicine — Bellevue appreciates being in Bellevue. “It’s (Bellevue) truly the best of both worlds. You get the world class expertise of Nebraska Medicine in a community atmosphere, where each of our patients feels valued. Our providers and staff feel like they’re taking care of their neighbors, and

BELLEVUE HEALTH CARE premier musculoskeletal clinic by providing chiropractic, manual therapy and rehabilitative services. He not only wants his patients to live pain-free with chiropractic care and injury prevention education, but also live healthy lifestyles. “We are a movement-based clinic,” said Dr. Behm. “Our style of care is less passive and more active in nature. We focus on proper joint range of motion, muscular function, and dynamic movement patterns in order to establish full body health. We utilize the most cutting-edge palpation and adjustment strategies to achieve whole body health. Aside from chiropractic care and joint mobilization, we specialize in rehabilitation and various soft tissue techniques such as active release techniques, dry needling and graston. Our goal is to be the premier muscle and joint clinic in the area utilizing only evidenced-based treatments.” Dr. Behm said that he deliberately chose Bellevue for his clinic. “Growing up in Papillion I wanted to come back to the Sarpy County area and start up a clinic. I chose Bellevue due to the fact that there was not a clinic in the area that offered the model of care that we offered: Combining chiropractic care with rehabilitation and soft tissue techniques all under one roof. I have relatives that reside in and own businesses in Bellevue which made Bellevue even more attractive. “The community of Bellevue is great,” Dr. Behm added. “The large population of Bellevue sets it apart from the surrounding communities yet continues to have the small-town charm. The residents of Bellevue are very supportive of the community and its businesses.” Dental care standards are high, and that holds true at McIntosh Family Dental. It offers a state-of-the-art office combined with a relaxed atmosphere to give patients a different dental experience where they are known by name and not a chart

number. The list of preventative, cosmetic and restorative services at this office includes routine cleanings, fillings, crowns, root canals, whitening, emergencies and so much more. Offering so many services is one thing, but wanting to truly help people is another. Dr. Patrick McIntosh discovered his desire to help others through dentistry at any early age. “I always knew that I loved helping others and how it felt when others helped me. I was a bit lost in college wondering what I wanted to do the rest of my life. I knew I liked helping others, I loved working with See page 32

my hands, and I loved my science courses. During college, I broke my two front teeth off and my uncle, who is a dentist, talked about how he loved being a dentist. He described his career to me and after putting it all together I settled on dentistry and I have never regretted it.� Dr. McIntosh and his practice have roots in Bellevue, thanks to his grandparents. “While I did not grow up in Bellevue, my mother did and I spent lots of time here visiting my grandparents. It just so happened that the first job I got as a dentist was with a group practice that had an office in Bellevue. I soon grew to love the patients I treated and knew that this was a great fit for me. I bought the practice that I worked in and have enjoyed working in the area since.� Dr. McIntosh would not have it any other way. “I have always prided myself in deeply caring for my patients’ needs. My office has a one-on-one experience that a lot of offices don't have. We get to know you by name and build a relationship with you and your family.� “Bellevue has treated me well for the last eight years. I find my patient base contains people who are deeply faithful to me as a dentist; they are just great people. The people of Bellevue should be proud to know that you don't find attributes like this just anywhere.� — Leah Parodi

HUNGRY?

Your first stop should be Bellevue When you are tired of cooking at home or need a quick meal, there are plenty of great dining options in Bellevue. With flavors from around the world, south of the border and across the oceans, diners should find something to satisfy every craving. Restaurante El Rio A long-standing sandwich shop in Olde Towne was converted into a Salvadoran restaurant. Restaurante El Rio opened on January 3 at 1021 W. 23rd Ave. The change was inspired by Claudia Murcia, a cook for four years at the sandwich shop, who grew up in El Salvador. Salvadoran food places an emphasis on fresh ingredients and uses a variety of salsas. Included on the menu are pupusas, tacos, enchiladas, drinks like horchata and specialties with fish, beef, pork and chicken. Spicy and mild dishes are available.

Roma's Albert and Gresa Govori are bringing their love of Italian food to Fort Crook Road. One of Bellevue’s newest restaurants, Roma Italian Restaurant is at 605 Fort Crook Road North. Albert Govori is originally from Albania, but grew up cooking and eating Italian food. The couple met in Brownwood, Texas, where Albert owned an Italian restaurant. The menu includes Italian specialties such as chicken Alfredo, lasagnas, pastas and piccatas, as well as more American dishes. Roma also features a number of desserts, including cannoli, cheesecake and tiramisu.

Quick Bites Soul Food Quick Bites Soul Food at 105 West Mission Ave. in Olde Towne serves up soul food classics with a healthy twist. Owner Justin Epting has always enjoyed soul food and wanted his restaurant to be both quick and healthy. Some of the menu items available include fried chicken, fried fish, pork chops, wings, macaroni and cheese, banana pudding and pound cake, and different specials are offered throughout the week. As a veteran, Epting also wanted to serve comfort food to veterans and military personnel who are a long way from home.

Stella's Bar & Grill Stella’s Bar & Grill, 106 Galvin Road South, has won many awards for its burgers. Family secrets have been handed down since 1936 when Estelle “Stella” Francois Sullivan Tobler opened a tavern in Bellevue. Stella’s burgers still consist of 6½-ounce, hand-pressed, fresh beef patties that are cooked in a cast-iron skillet. Rotella’s buns are delivered fresh every morning to complete the stacks of food presented on napkins, just the way Stella did. Stella passed away in 1985, but left a legacy to “help others out of the kindness of your heart, without expecting anything in return.”

Moonstruck Pizza & Beer Besides a name change, downtown's popular mead purveyor is bringing beer and wine to it's restaurant. Moonstruck will no longer produce its own mead, but will offer other labels to sell at the establishment. Menu changes are in the works, too. Pecan-smoked ribs and a couple of new appetizers are being offered. The restaurants popular honey-crust pizza will remain. Gluten free crusts are also available. Diners should look for more menu items to come. “We are adding flavor, if you will,” said owner Brian Schlueter who opened the restaurant and tasting room in 2011 at 2221 Madison St.

Umami Bellevue now has a taste of Japan with Umami, a restaurant specializing in sushi and Asian cuisine. The restaurant primarily serves Japanese food, focusing on sushi and a hibachi grill feature. Owner Keen Zheng trained under a number of New York City sushi chefs. What sets Umami apart is the “fresh from scratch” philosophy. “Basically I try to do everything housemade,” Zheng said. Salmon is smoked, other fish marinated, and soy sauce is made on site. Umami, located at 1504 Galvin Road South, features lunch specials and dinner each day, as well as delivery.

BELLEVUE ARTS SCENE The creative thread that weaves through the Bellevue community seems to be everlasting. For decades, artists in the Bellevue community have found enrichment in the Bellevue Little Theatre and the Bellevue Artists’ Association.

Bellevue Little Theatre

Volunteers have made Bellevue Little Theatre, 203 West Mission Avenue, a recognized name in the greater metro community. Founded in 1968 by a volunteer board of directors, the theater is in its 48th season. For the first eight years, the community theatre staged its shows at restaurants and schools, including Bellevue University. Today, it’s a consistent winner of Theatre Arts Guild awards for quality productions. In 1977, the board purchased and renovated the 244-seat, 1940s-era Roxy movie theater building in Olde Towne. In 1992, the adjacent building was purchased for dressing rooms. The box office and a thrift shop, established 20-plus years ago, operates with an all-volunteer staff. Professional actors and musicians are hired for performances.

The Bellevue Little Theatre has been in the heart of Olde Towne since 1977.

BELLEVUE ARTS SCENE Bellevue Artists Association

The Bellevue Artists Association hosts several art shows during the year. Locations vary. The association holds monthly meetings and a competition.

Organized in 1974, the Bellevue Artists Association works to keep the art scene hopping in the city. The association welcomes new artists, professional artists and those in the middle, said LouAnn Ayers, co-president. The association organizes several shows each year around the community. Through classes, art shows and contests, the club works to educate and promote art in Bellevue. The association meets the second Tuesday of each month at Anderson Grove Church, 12005 S. 36th St., in Bellevue. Monthly meetings include an Artist of the Month competition. Winners are chosen by popular vote in an informal competition designed to encourage artists' creativity. One of the group’s largest shows is the Silver Palette which highlights pieces produced by local artists. The group also hosts several smaller shows through the year at area businesses. — Valerie Koehler

GREEN BELLEVUE

Coming together to make the city beautiful Trees and Gardens

Bellevue is becoming greener by the day, thanks to a volunteer initiative that was started by the City Council in 2009 and became Green Bellevue, a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization in 2010. The focus of Green Bellevue is “to promote a more beautiful and environment-friendly community.” Educational programs are offered free to the public at monthly Green Bellevue meetings. Find details at www. greenbellevue.org.

Designated by the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum as a Community Arboretum and by the Arbor Day Foundation as a Tree City USA, Bellevue has 2,000 acres of forest within its city limits. Since 2009, Green Bellevue has been applying for tree-planting grants and organizing spring and fall tree planting efforts, which have resulted in the addition of more than 975 trees in public areas. It also has partnered with Fontenelle Forest to educate the public on controlling invasive species. Green Bellevue recruits volunteers to maintain and plant public gardens. Its largest undertaking to date is the design and installation of a series of rain gardens at the Eastern Nebraska Veterans Home. The largest project of its kind in Nebraska, it captures and naturally filters and prevents more than 5 million gallons of runoff from eroding Quail Creek. Other gardens include Everett Park, Gemini Park and the butterfly garden at Bellevue Public Library.

GREEN BELLEVUE Sarpy County Earth Day

Ramp Up Recycling

The Sarpy County Earth Day celebration is held the last week of April at the BPS Lied Activity Center and provides community members of all ages a chance to learn about caring for the environment. Featured are youth activities, local food, an athletic event, an indoor expo with many exhibitors, outdoor activities, and a youth Fashion Trashion Show. This event highlights opportunities to get involved in our community. The April 30, 2017, event will feature a special educational session organized by the City of Bellevue and an eco-friendly auto showcase.

In 2016, the Sarpy County Landfill was closed. Today, garbage is taken to a landfill in David City, almost 60 miles away. As a direct response to the 2013 announcement of the closure and lack of local landfill infrastructure, Green Bellevue began a grassroots effort to join forces with Sarpy cities to “Lighten the Load to the Landfill.� With an intention to increase Bellevue’s recycling rate, in 2015 the City of Bellevue launched a successful solid waste pilot program that has achieved an increase in recycling by more than 12 percent. This program is set on increasing Bellevue’s landfill diversion numbers; you can find more information about this program at www.bellevuesolidwaste.net. In addition, the City of Bellevue offers a public space recycling program which includes recycling in city parks. See greenbellevue.org for recycling drop-off options.

OFFUTT AIR FORCE BASE With Offutt Air Force Base – the largest military installation in the United States – providing national defense, perhaps it’s no surprise that the defense industry continues to prosper in the city. In fact, the defense industry and the military are among Bellevue’s largest employers in the business sector. Offutt AFB has an estimated economic impact of more than $1.5 billion (2015). Offutt Air Force Base is the home of the 55th Wing and more than 50 partner units including the U.S. Strategic Command and the 557th Weather Wing. Located in Bellevue, Offutt's diverse missions and global responsibilities put it on the cutting edge of the United States security. Each branch of the U.S. military is represented among the approximately 10,000 military and federal employees assigned here. More than 50 defense companies do business in the Bellevue-Offutt community and employ more than 2,700 people. It’s because of the city’s high-tech labor pool, dependable utilities, extensive telecommunications system and urbanized infrastructure that Offutt AFB and the Bellevue-Offutt community have stayed strong.

HONORING THOSE WHO SERVED Avenue of the Flags

From mid-May until mid-November, Bellevue’s Avenue of Flags flies proudly. Since 1999, American flags, thanks to the generosity of donors, have lined Mission Avenue and Franklin Street in Olde Towne, Galvin Road, and a stretch of Highway 370. Due to wear and tear, many flags, poles and hardware must be replaced each year. A donation of $60 helps buy a replacement flag. Make checks payable to the Bellevue Economic Enhancement Foundation. Donations can be dropped off at the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce office or mailed to B.E.E.F., 1102 Galvin Road South, Bellevue, NE 68005. For more information about the program, contact the chamber of commerce at 402-504-9774 or visit www.bellevuenebraska.com

National Cemetery

A new national cemetery opened near Springfield in summer 2016. The 263-acre cemetery occupies ground purchased by the National Cemetery Administration in 2012 for $6.2 million. It is located at 14250 Schram Road, which is the intersection of Highway 50 and Schram Road. The first interments took place in the fall 2016. Burials are restricted to in-ground burials for caskets and cremation urns. By the fall of 2017, services are expected to include above-ground placement for cremated remains. Veterans, their spouses, their children below the age of 27, and children of any age who developed a disability before reaching the age of maturity are all eligible for burial at the cemetery. Cemetery benefits include the opening and closing of the burial plot, the plot itself, the marker, any inscription, and perpetual care. Full information on National Cemetery Administration policies is available at cem.va.gov.
