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

Cold Front?


When I see it. Hey, just in case I haven’t mentioned this before, you folks need to scan backwards from time to time to keep up with whats going on around the ‘hood. I rarely post an item like a flyer or other notice twice. Not enough time. So like the recycle places for tires, and Market happenings please give the whole week a quick peek just to make sure you don’t miss what you were looking for. Onward.

OK Heads up all you animal lovers and especially the Dog people. You know who you are. Seems my post on Wednesday was not accurate. This is from our pet liaison the Lovely Lezlie and her cohort Justengaged Jennifer.
For Blog Posting please:
Hi there – Jennifer Moon and I were just talking and we are trying to get more people to help us “catch” our boxer mix……….Jennifer is home mostly so if someone sees him can they please email her at
Jennifer Moon jenn1moon@yahoo.com and she can go see if she can get him……………we are trying to do this versus him getting caught in the trap if at all possible!!

From Neighbor Beth..PAY ATTENTION!
Texas voters – Proposition 2 election is fast approaching  
Proposition 2, which will be on the Texas ballot Nov. 8, 2011, supports the construction of critical local water projects at no cost to state taxpayers. The devastating impacts of drought and wildfire across Texas have escalated the importance to protect public health and grow the economy. An adequate supply of clean, affordable water is essential to the success of the state’s major economic sectors, making water a crucial component of job creation and economic development.

Just in time for Halloween!!

I imagine the cavers are up in arms over the notice regarding Jackie's boat. How many boats does Jackie have in the canal anyway? I challenge everyone to go look at Aspen and Tindall and the Sanford and Sons aesthetic there....how can we call the island a slice of paradise when this is allowed to continue?

When the latest information is presented to the DA for investigation I hope to God someone points out the three sponsors. That underlines complicity in violating the open meetings act and I'm pretty sure it's not the first time. Now the question is just what the hell are we going to do about it?

Jackie is apparantly special. From what I understand he was told to clean up a year or two ago. Then from the story I heard he was arrested for not responding. Jackie apparantly has no regard for rules or laws but you also need to ask why after all of this time, a notice to clean up his junk yard and an arrest, why has nothing been cleaned up and why is he still able to thumb his nose at the law? It is Jack Frydays job to take car of these matters, that is part of what we pay him for. I think Jack owes us an explanation. Why does Jackie seem to get special treatment?

Again, with the anon .. no signatures ..what are you people afraid of? I agree with what you say - just frosts me that you do not sign your name. No one can be taken seriously unless there is accountability - all around. Just saying...Bettie J

to be honest i post as anon because i am scared of the police who made the complaints and now hang out at tamys and bernies on a regular basis. I dont trust them. suggest everyone who has spoken out to watch their backs. my friends in kemah have alot of gossip they can pass on that is scary and disturbing regarding thes cops. may not be true but better safe than sorry

Bettie said...

Well, to be honest - I still feel the same. What has happened to CLS, freedom of speech and just plain doing the right thing? This whole mess is beyond sad. My family moved here because we felt safe, loved all the neighbors, and felt our police department was the best. My husband called it "Mayberry". (as in a small town atmosphere where everyone has each other's back..and takes care of each other) .. This is still America the last time I looked and we need to speak up and not be bullied!

I want to feel safe also but i don't right now..... again better safe than sorry tamy went to work for these cops and they are loyal to her from what i have been told i admire your courage but I have heard to many rumors to feel safe speaking out right now i hope they are wrong but it doesnt look like they are.....

Are you saying Kenny is on team North Shore? We knew Denise was. But Kenny, too? Dear God help us.

The Hunchback is what Kathy is called now have you seen her walk. She is all eaten up with hate and anger her body is folding in half, poor thing well My, My!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And on Tuesday when the group gets the last new business item passed, she can pick up the phone, call Kenny, Denise, one other I suspect, and have any of us arrested. She pulled off a peaceful political coup but has a couple of people to get even with who have questioned her authority. Who said she was stupid? and she is not finished so buckle up and dont get caught drinking.

Northshore, The bug jar gang, the green party whatever you want to call them who have been led by KM, BM, JG and a few others for many, many years are 197 days away from being nothing more than political history if we all get out and vote. They will go down like a horrific flaming plane crash because of their arrogant, selfish, F you attitudes. I hope three good candidates run who have open minds and will listen to everyone and act on the majoritys wishes. If we can get Council representatives like this in office we need to have a huge party in front of City Hall on election night to celebrate the end of a nighmare and to celebrate a fresh start. Hopefully Jean, Kathy, Bernie, Tami and all of the other hate mongering old coots will pack up and go get elected to the board of an assisted living center somewhere in North Houston.

Afraid of our current police force when we used to love them so much. What a crying shame. If you are hearing things from Kemah and other cops about retaliation against citizens in clear lake shores perhaps we need an investigation.

Article about Denise. How long after this incident did she leave her kids and husband to move to our area? Did she sue City of Palacious and win?

being mean and name calling solves nothing. doing so means you are not any better then the NS Gang- This is not grade school. Just say what you have to say or shut up. rumors help no one.

I respect and appreciate the hard work our Police Department does to protect all of us. If you need help in the middle of the night you can be sure they will be there. Lighten up on them! ALLEN CRUTHIRDS

Its like having an insurance policy you pay on for years, you get sick and finally read the policy to find you are not covered.

A few months ago when we realized we were in trouble we looked at the policy and found we are not allowed to do a recall (not covered).

Has anyone looked at the policy to see if the Mayor or CA can fire policemen? I wouldn't be surprised if we learned that they can't do that either (not covered.) If they cant, then Tami is definitely running the show, along with help from the police department.

Whoever gets elected in May needs to have the courage to clean house if its needed. The truth always reveals itself in time.
