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

Ready for the second tower to come down? I heard what I hope is a rumor, that Mike Meyers is going to be our new Police Chief. Anybody heard that and any truth to it?

Ladies and gentlemen of the blog-o-sphere, Travis is back. I guess, technically he never left, he just hasn’t figured out the comment stuff. To everyone who doesn’t know, the blog sends me an email of all comments whether they post or not. That’s how I know about these things. I helped ol’ Trav out and posted his rant albeit edited. I promise I won’t do it again. What I feel I must do, is reply to his latest attempt. It’s why I don’t reply to Bernie’s comments anymore. He honestly believes the crap he spews to be truth and we will never agree. I will put Trav’s comments in quotation marks and by no means is the entire email enclosed. Nothing is taken out of context. My BS meter is off the friggin’ chart…….
“I can't speak for Tami, but I would be sorry to see her go.” Why Travis?, Tell us why you would be sorry to see her go. I'm dying to hear this answer. I may even post it for you. Odds are against it but what the hell, people win the lotto.
“People like you are the reason criminals are allowed to operate and corruption runs rampant in our Governments, be it in a city or in the White House.” Since I am the owner of this blog I must assume you are directing this comment at me. People like me? See, when you say stupid shit like this I assume you are even more uninformed that I did at the beginning of our relationship. Now you're just a dumbass. The words in this blog speak for themselves, this blog you claimed to read. That makes it official Trav you are either stupid or you're a liar. Since life is all about options I'll let you pick.
“A Report of Corruption was made” No Trav, it wasn't. If you read this blog you would know that. I posted the entire complaint and it was nothing more than a bitch about working conditions by someone who doesn't even work here. It’s all there for you to read. You know what really pisses me off? The fact that I'm wasting my valuable time responding to a perfectly ignorant statement like this.
“…as a duly Elected Official she has a duty to investigate such a report.” The fact that I have to spell out that not one comment in this entire blog disagrees with your statement is pathetic. You my friend have drank the kool-ade. You can’t see the forest for trees. I find that sad. The gist of this blog for the past 7 weeks has been the simple fact that our Councilman chooses not to follow the rules. Any rules. You should read her article to the Pool Committee concerning her kid and the fact that the pool rules did not apply to her and her kid. Quite entertaining. But I’m sure you wouldn’t get that either. How unfortunate.
“People need to think and let the investigation results speak for themselves before someone goes to jail for intimidation or threats against an Elected Official, this isn't your neighbor, and there are severe consequences for such actions.” What the hell are you even talking about?
“How low can you get with threating (sic) to cause her Mother a heart attack by your actions??? This is a friendly piece of advice that you need to allow the investigation to run its course without further interference or threats of harm to those involved. “ Does it rain much on your planet? This is so inane it defies comment. I give. Travis, pick another name to sign on with. You are persona non grata. Or is the joke on me and this is really Bernie?

Allan, you wasted too much of your life on Trav, especially precious weekend time. I am going to skip his posts since I have to read and reread sentences and still cannot make sense of them. Somewhat like Bernie and Tami.

Sure wish you would get the permission of the Pool
Committee to post Tami's letter here.

If she had ever been in a position of administration she would know that delegating is all part of the job. Sounds like Paul was / is a good chief and administrator by delegating tasks to others including Tina.

I heard the investigation won't take weeks as first anticipated. Has anyone heard when the final report will be ready? Will residents be able to read it on the CLS website? If not, how will we access it?

Suzanne, it didn't take long to get out that a little birdie
cut a deal today. Small town grapevine is really good.

I can't speak for Tami, but I would be sorry to see her go. This is what every person goes through who is trying to do the right thing for the right reason be it a witness to a criminal act, whistle blower on corruption, Politician trying to cut runway spending, Police Officer trying to do their job and and many more people who face the stress, as you call it, of doing their job. People like you are the reason criminals are allowed to operate and corruption runs rampant in our Governments, be it in a city or the White House.
A report of Corruption was made, this isn't the first time for Paul Shelley either, and as a duly Elected Official she has a duty to investigate such a report. Tami Perkins' Fact Finding found enough to say there is cause for an investigation. The Board then weighted the Findings, spoke with Paul Shelley, who resigned as Chief of Police, and voted to hire an outside Agency to conduct a fair and impartial investigation. The results of that are to be determined. This investigation has taken on a life of it's own and a few already know where the final stop will be because someone is already talking.
The Board is Elected Officials and do have the protection of their Office. People need to think and let the investigation results speak for themselves before someone goes to jail for intimidation or threats against an Elected Official, this isn't you neighbor, and there are severe consequences for such actions. How low can you get with threating to cause her Mother a heart attack by your actions??? This is a friendly piece of advice that you need to allow the investigation to run its course without further interference or threats of harm to those involved.

Suzanne said... "ask your mother not to attend council mtgs. Perhaps she will be the one having the heart attack due to the stress."
Roselyn said... "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"

Alan, it has been fun to talk to such a narrow minded thug who can't see through the alcoholic haze to understand there are at least 11 allegations listed on your Blog alone against Paul Shelly and those really aren't the worse ones that have been addressed to him. Remember he resigned behind those closed doors when he was confronted with all of the allegations. Until the next time I need a good laugh.

Can't wait for tonight to be jammin. We need to have some fun and put this political nonsense aside for the weekend!

Roselyn said...

Sorry if I am posting too much, but tonight at Jammin on Jarboe Buzz Larabee was a real inspiration to me. He is 82, danced just about every dance, he was good at it, had on a ZZ Top T shirt, had a smile on his face, was a pleasure to talk to, was respectful and friendly to everybody. You probably know he lives half the year in Mexico in s small village where he rides a bike, and then the other half here with his wife.......My Joe was a councilman when Buzz was a Mayor about 20 years ago. Not much has changed politically in that the two differing sides occasionally opposed each other and it ends up with people taking sides and hurt feelings. The most wonderful thing about Buzz though is that he served his community well as Mayor but he knew when his service was no longer needed and he stepped aside so that others could come up through the ranks and serve their city. He is now totally enjoying his life. Last month at Tina's Ft. Massey party Buzz said that Ted Guthrie was mayor after him and what a wonderful man Ted was. He said if Ted told you something it was the truth and you could take it to the bank. I hope I am like Buzz when my career is over. I dont want to be mean and take decent people "down" because I was disappointed in how my life turned out.....I just told Joe I am moving to Mexico and he told me to go to bed and shut up.

It was so good to see Paul and TINA last night @ Jarboe Jam. We need her for all the good she did in CLS that no one ever knew about. As Jan said to me, "Tina was a social worker that happened to wear a badge." Miss you, Tina.
