IslandDrumz

Welcome to our little slice of paradise! Clear Lake Shores is probably one of the best kept secrets in the entire Bay Area. Yes we are an island. We are surrounded by Clear Lake, Jarbo Bayou and the Lazy Bend canals. Plug this in to Google Maps and you'll see what I mean 29.32' by 95.01' We are about half way between Galveston Island and the city of Houston and located in north Galveston county. I will try to keep us up on all the goings on that we can walk, boat, bike or drive our golf carts to. Very few things pi$$ me off but one of them is wasting my precious time. I'll try not to waste yours. Enjoy. ab

Happy Birthday to the Revenue Cutter Service!

Or the U.S. Coast Guard as we know them today. I love you folks.

I want to say Good morning to Travis Dunn. Trav is trying to post a rant to the blog but hasn’t quite got there. Yet. When he figures it out my response below will make a lot more sense. Craig ? you want to help Ol’ Trav out? His comment is not posting.

Good morning Travis Dunn. And welcome to my blog. Lets’ start with a little clarification. I am indeed almighty. Take that to the bank. My nephews cause for termination is between him and his former employer. He reads this blog and if he feels so compelled to address your question he will. He’s a big boy. Did I say something that hurt your feelings? I’ve been called a lot of things, most of them are true, but never a thug, jailhouse lawyer, mind reader and God forbid a woman-hater. My language has been known to get a tad colorful from time to time but you need to understand I don’t need anything to make me manlier. If I was any manlier It would be against the law. That tells me you don’t me. Profanity hurt your ears? If you have been reading this blog then you no doubt read the disclaimer that said you may occasionally come across adult language. You did read that didn’t you? You’re not a liar are you? I don’t really care if you are or not but that would change a few things. I’ve also never been accused of being politically correct. “Councilman” is defined by Websters as a member of a council. Look it up. I don’t give a rats puckered ass what sex they are. Oopsies.
I do have a lot of information. Thank you. It comes from being involved. It really is that simple. I’m sure you have your own selfish reasons for including names in your childish rant. I can only imagine why you self centered ass.
The problem with this blog is that I don’t edit (with 3 exceptions) what people post. Like you. Warts and all. And I don’t care if you don’t like it. Really. I don’t. Oh, I’m not editing or blocking your post. I’m sure you’ll figure out what the problem in. You’re probably getting an error message but not sure what to do with it. Magic you say? How do I know what you’re trying to post if it’s not posting? Smoke and mirrors Travis. If you ask nicely I’ll help you post your rant. Here’s a hint. It’s too long. Now hurry up so this will make sense to everyone else. You don’t have to threaten to post it to GCDN. That’s not very manly……..
PS: I understand that GCDN pulled your post too..........sucks to be you.

Now everyone is aware you slant this Blog to favor Paul and Tina Shelley. But the Posting is out there and so is the information. Your right, they pulled it off the Galveston Daily News but only to verify what was said. Remember you used his self-serving letter. Look for a new article about what was stated not only by me but others on Blue News. The Blue News also exposed Paul's use of credit cards and city contracts in their Blog. As far you go, you can't even face an opposing view. You can only verbally attack a woman trying to discredit and assassinate her character. Tami Perkins and the other Board Members are Duly Elected Officials and not only have the right but the duty to question problems brought to their attention. Paul and Tina both resigned under an Investigation and neither was fired. Why run if you have nothing to hide? The truth is getting out and more people are beginning to realize a nice guy can sell you a bill of goods and with people like you to help him you are just as guilty of corruption as they may be. Lets see who is still standing an the end of this investigation and who gets the boot including this Blog which has hindered an investigation into possible corruption in Clear Lake Shores.

Travis definitly goes in the green bug jar and if Cheryl Dunn is your mom, please ask her to call me, as we have some unfinished business.

Craig said...

Alrighty then,

Travis posted. I hope he continues to stay with us. I don't have time to figure out what he is trying to say or I am just not smart enough but I will respond to one remark Travis made. Paul did not run. He is still here and will be untill he retires from what I understand. Thanks to this mess, Paul is now making 95% of his salary to do one job instead of two. I guess I do agree Travis, Paul did run. He ran straight towards a great deal our Council offred him.

Keep up the good work Travis. I am sure we all look forward to reading more of your interesting posts.

Vern said...

Travis;

should not your Blue News verify facts and not be printing accusations?
do you not understand that accusing someone is different than exposing someone...exposing someone requires proof..accusing someone requires nothing.two different positions legally and morally.
I would hope you would understand that in this country people are considered innocent until proven guilty..or have you forgotten that too?
Remember that all this hearsay is second hand information and should be treated as such until PROVEN otherwise.

MAN UP. stop with the negative rumors, gather your own information
and use some decency and that thing you should have between your ears..
Vern Johnson
Mayor, Clear Lake Shores

Travis, we're in an energy crunch due to the heat. Stop wasting electrons. Dumnass.

Craig said...

Travis,

Who are you, do you have a dog in the fight, why so angry? Could you let all of us know who are so we can understand your position better?

ab said...

Travis has left a new comment on your post "Happy hump day":

It does seem like there are at least two people to address in this comment ??? Little late but I have been reading this blog and could no longer let it stand without addressing it.
To the Almighty who is a “jail house lawyer, police expert and mind reader” with the Nephew who was terminated for cause: “Was he a Police Officer??” If he wasn’t a Police Officer what was the cause for his firing? How does that apply to this situation concerning Police Officers? Four Police Officers had their careers ruin by Paul Shelley with the bad F5 Reviews that he gave them (reviews that are career ending when viewed by other Police Depts.). Since you suggest that a favor was done in allowing your Nephew to quit, my question is this: “Did Paul and/or Tina Shelley call in the favor owed by your family, and that is the reason you are posting on here inclusion with Paul and Tina Shelley???” Also for someone, who isn’t a member of this Police Department or Board, you have a lot of inside information that only Paul or Tina and/or the Mayor would be privy to. Oh, by the way your profanity doesn’t make you manlier either but just a thug with a foul mouth. Tami Perkins is a “Councilwoman” who was duly elected and deserves the respect that comes with the position, not to be call a Councilman by a foul mouth woman hating thug. You don’t have to like her position on a topic to be respectful of her office or any elected official. “Arm chair quarterbacks” always know best after the play is run and they have watched all of the replays, try being in the game or is that beyond your abilities? Don’t like it then run for Office.

This paragraph has been removed by me. It is hearsay and opinionated at best and slanderous at the least. The gist of Travis’ rant is evident in the remainder.

To both of you who are friends of Paul and Tina Shelley: Paul and Tina Shelley both resigned under investigation and neither were fired. Shouldn’t they both be given bad F5 Reviews where they can no longer obtain a position in Law Enforcement??? Paul Shelley gave other CLS’s Officers who supposedly quit under investigation exactly that. Allen, do you really think a Rookie would make Captain if she weren’t sleeping with the Chief in any Police Department, including passing over a highly qualified Officer to do just that? It doesn’t take much imagination to know Paul Shelley was padding his own pocketbook by putting his wife, a Rookie, in the position of Captain instead of doing what was in the best interest of the Police Department and Clear Lake Shores.
The problem in the Police Department and Clear Lake Shores, is just like this Blog, you can see Paul and Tina Shelley’s fingerprints all over it. Just like your Posting, it is self-serving for Paul and Tina at the expense of others and to me it confirms the need for further investigation of all the allegations and others you have brought out here.

Travis said...

Alan you used the letter that the Police Officer submitted in your long draw out attack on Tami Perkins. It is fine to use her name, threaten and attack her on here with impunity, but for me to address the Officer's self serving letter and who his wife is, OH Well that is wrong and goes against "your rules of fair play".
The paragraph that is deleted addressed those facts and why the Officer might have bought into this debate and what he had to loose if Paul and Tina Shelley are found guilty of the allegations that have levied against them. Even the Mayor jumped on here wanting me to be considerate of Paul, Tina and others but since when did you give that same consideration as you slandered Tami Perkins and others on here. If Paul and Tina go down there will be others dragged right along with them and that is the fact of the "Plea Bargain". Who can I sell out to make it easier on me? There is an outside source who is investigating and they only care about being paid for a job well done. The bigger the rat the better it looks on their resume. Remember nobody fired Paul or Tina Shelley, so why did they run? Yes, Paul Shelley is still working for the City, but then again he wasn't allowed to retire and sweep all of this under the rug either. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer... How is the HEAT Mayor???

Been out of the loop, Who's this Travis character?

Dave

Craig said...

Don't know Dave I posted that same question to Travis at 12:49 but so far no response. Its hard to know where someone is going when you don't know where they are coming from. Maybe he will explain soon.

Adelia said...

Wow Travis - you really are good at this ranting stuff!!
No one on this island would believe that ab does anything because he is indebted to the police chief, mayor or anyone else for that matter. He is too old and crotchety to remember what he owes anybody anyway. You need to calm down - I worry about you having a stroke over things you don't know anything about. Tammy is given respect when we use the term councilman and only Bernie has accused her of having balls (several times I might add). I do hope you feel better now that you got all this off your chest.

DaveC. said...

Travis I looked up The Blue News and Bluenews and can't find anything related to police blog or activity. What is your source Blue news and where can I find it.

Roselyn said...

The clue here is that Travis uses the word "impune". Thats a word an attorney would use. Hum, do we know an attorney that would be interested in what goes on in the police department of CLS? And 'Travis' I think you missed the council meeting where your revered Tami Perkins said "Fuck You" to a citizen and then as she left the building, practically running down the sidewalk, yelled back at the citizen on the balcony "Eat Me". Guess you missed that part 'Travis'.

Roselyn said...

I noticed today that the city was cutting back the dead limbs on Linda and Patrick's poisoned tree. Hope it makes it as there were a few green sprigs. If it doesnt though I hope she will hire Eric to carve a flamingo from the trunk and paint it pink.

David Ruocco said...

Amen Vern...enough of accusations and innuendos let the facts come out and let us all as a community make a decision....that is all we have asked for and were denied.

Craig said...

It appears Travis has some anger problems. He has no problem ranting on and on with virtually no facts but when I asked him a couple of fair easy questions he disappears. Travis isn't Bernies middle name is it? Come on Travis take a deep breath chill out and answer my questions. If you can't go find something else to do.

Travis said...

Craig, I am present but I just have gone unnoticed because i keep to myself and won't have my family attacked like Tami's Mother was at the meeting. This Blog has set itself above good manners or ethical behavior. Sitting in front of someone's home with their vehicle running, throwing rocks, verbally attacking a Mother who states she is proud of her daughter, and on and on. I have stated facts but on this Blog it is here-say, accusations, innuendos, ranting, anger, etc... in an attempt to nullify the descending points, or facts being stated. Now here is another fact, there is an official investigation and the Board are elected officials. Intimation, threats, and other measures will lead to dire consequences for those involved in committing those acts especially for those under investigation. So, I agree, people need to tone-it-down and let the proper authorities do their job including those that were elected to represent this community.
Funny about my Posting being to long, when "Ab said" posted all but the paragraph naming the Officer that wrote the letter which Alan included in his ripping of Tami Perkin's Allegations as to why an investigation into Paul and Tina Shelly was needed. It gave another motivate as to why the Officer would write such a letter. As the Great Paul Harvey would say, "Here is the rest of the story." To all a good night and a good night to all.

Adelia said...

There goes another accusation. Who are you accusing of sitting in front of Tami's house throwing rocks at her mother!! This is certainly not anything that ANYONE here would condone. Has this been reported to the proper authorities? Do you know for sure this really happened or is this another hear/say Travis?

Roselyn said...

Tami's mother was not attacked at the meeting. Jean Garst was standing right there and will testify that I approached Tami when council adjourned and said to Tami. "What do you think is so funny?" She said "I dont have to talk to you." I said "You think this is funny?" Her mother stepped in front of her and told me not to talk to her that she is probably going to have a heart attack". I said to the Mom, "I just want to know what is so funny." I pointed to the video cameraman and aid "I have paid that man to video this meeting for evidence and will take it to the lawyer (or DA, can't remember which I said) next week and it wont be so funny then" My neighbor police woman then tapped me on the arm and said time to leave....As we walked out I said to Mom, "As a Mother, how could you let your daughter do this?" So, no cussing, no threats, Mom stepped between me and her daughter and it was not mom's business. Jean was standing two feet from us and watching the entire thing, so ask her if you have doubts. Jackie was also standing there but he is a confirmed liar with me, and that i a fact also,

Roselyn said...

Oh, and last night I was not parked in front of Tami' house. I was retrieving something from her neighbor's mailbox. How funny that you think I would be stalking Tami. I could care less what she does in her personal time, as long as its not having an illegal council meeting outside of council chambers.

DaveC. said...

Tami is this much stress worth a dollar a year. Your making life long enemies and your life on the island miserable. Is letting the North Shore use you as a pawn really worth it! You are going to sacrafice many happy years if you continue on this path. Please do yourself and the island a favor and RESIGN your position on city council. Think of your mother also, she must be stressed too!!! Think of the greater good and thank you for your service!

Dave

I remember the day Monica Lewinsky returned to California and her father welcomed her with open arms. I remember it very clearly since I was watching the news with my mother, an outspoken woman. She asked me if I wanted to know what her father would have done to her in that situation. There would not have been open arms to say the least. BTW my grandfather was the warmest, kindest man with a very clear sense of right and wrong.

I am blessed to have a mother that supports me and let's me have it if I am on the wrong path. Even after a disagreement we both know how much love we share.

Your mother may be supporting you Tami, however I am glad my mother would have steered me differently if I was on council making your horrible choices.

How sad your mother even steps between you and a concerned citizen who is trying to ask you a question.

If you can not step down from council at least ask you mother not to attend council mtgs. Perhaps she will be the one having the heart attack due to the stress. If you can protect this city at least protect your poor mom.
