From neighbor Rick: Hey Allen,
Can you please help me get the word out for a raffle to benefit a long time friend of ours?
His name is James Romine (known the boy since high school) & he is a Sgt for the Harris Co Sheriff's dept. A couple of months back, he was diagnosed with Superior& nbsp;Canal Dehiscense, an inner ear disorder that requires brain surgery to correct. As a double whammy, the Drs also found an aneurysm during the pre-op testing. On Aug 1st, he underwent a procedure using a catheter to have the it coiled & it was discovered that he had a double aneurysm so the coil procedure did not work. He went in this past Tuesday for brain surgery to fix both problems. He is doing well & should make a full recovery. It sounds like they may even let him go home tomorrow.
Unfortunately, insurance is only going to cover 80% of the costs, so he is going to be stuck with some pretty hefty bills on a public servant salary. A raffle has been put together to help offset some of the expenses. The prize is a Stag AR-15 assault rifle or there is an alternate prize of a $1000 Visa gift card for those that do not want the rifle or cannot pass the required background check. Tickets are $10 each or 3 for $20. The drawing date is Oct 14, 2011. If anyone is interested, they can contact me at 832-439-3319 (please leave a voicemail if no answer, I may be flying) or Sam at 832-567-1677. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org & Sam's email@example.com .
Thanks for the help & please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or need any more info!
Talk to you soon!
Rick & Sam Fisher

So, I do have an important call to the citizens of CLS – always balance the tribes of CLS on City Council. Yes, pay attention to the person running. Try to determine if they are a control freak or crazy. You will be wrong half of the time; maybe, most of the time. Control freaks can be the sweetest of people when they need something from you – like your vote. And, they have a lot of energy. Remember, control freaks have been hounded off the island; it didn’t change much – we are still in the 20 year war. The only difference is the pendulum swung; the war goes on.
Always pay attention to the tribe you are voting into office and who represents what tribe of those remaining on council when you vote. Remember, that we always need a 2-2-1 split on Council. If we CLS citizens weren’t weird or controlling or otherwise dysfunctional, we wouldn’t live in CLS. We would be in South Shore Harbour. And our politicians are the extreme of us. They are the liqueur of the citizenry, so to speak. Balancing the crazies is the most important task we have as citizens of CLS – much more so than trying to get rid of the crazies - which can’t be done with elected representatives from a population of crazies. Remember, running the bums out only swings the pendulum and the war continues. Balance!
What's the definition of a will? (It's a dead giveaway).
