Clovis Fire Chief Transition

 

Clovis City Manager Rob Woolley has announced the appointment of Deputy Fire Chief Micheal Despain as Fire Chief following the pending retirement of current Fire Chief Lee Kraft.  After 32 years of service, Fire Chief Lee Kraft has announced his retirement effective February 28, 2013.  During his 32 years, Chief Kraft served in every rank with 10 of those years spent as a member of the management team.  Reflecting back on his years of service, Chief Kraft said, “The Fire Chief for the City of Clovis is an enviable position. The Fire Chief is the leader of a group of people who are dedicated and focused on providing the highest quality service to our community.  In addition, the Clovis Fire Department is part of an integrated City organization where all City employees work together for the common good and the Fire Chief works as a servant, allowing the organization to meet community and other department needs.”

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

 

 What do people do?

Martin Luther King Day is a relatively new federal holiday and there are few long standing traditions. It is seen as a day to promote equal rights for all Americans, regardless of their background. Some educational establishments mark the day by teaching their pupils or students about the work of Martin Luther King and the struggle against racial segregation and racism. In recent years, federal legislation has encouraged Americans to give some of their time on this day as volunteers in citizen action groups.

Escort Service Robberies

Escort Service Robberies

 

Clovis Police detectives are asking anyone who may have used escort services offered through classifieds.myredbook.com and backpage.com at 275 W. Alamos in Clovis from late October through December 27th to contact them. Right now, investigators have seven confirmed cases of “clients” being robbed, many of them as the perpetrators brandished a handgun and demanded money and property.

Last Friday (12/28), Clovis Police served a search warrant at the W. Alamos address and arrested 19-year-old Bobby Peele who lived there, 19-year-old Javontae Johnson of Fresno and a 17-year-old girl of Fresno. Detectives say the juvenile talked with the potential “customers” on the phone and lured them to the residence, where they were robbed of money and cell phones. Officers recovered some money, cell phones and the handgun when they served the warrant.
