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

Save US!

Rob and Neil's Party in Three days!
Chili in 10
Mancakes in 23

I am fighting the urge to send out a cryptic SOS. I feel Like we are adrift and no one is at the helm. I want to put a message in a bottle and throw it in to my front yard from the deck in hopes that someone will see the shit we're in and come and save us. For everyone who was not able to make the festivities at the City Council meeting here is your recap as best I remember it. Rest assured I will be corrected where need be.
The City is buying a bunch of trees to replace a small fraction of the ones we lost from Ike. It's a start. I'll see if I can find the specs and post them here.
Barbara Nichols offered her skill set to aid the office workers and I couldn't hear her that well but I thought I heard her say she'd do it for free. Imagine that.
They tried like hell to pass 4 months worth of minutes but a couple of your elected officials had "issues" and wanted them revisited. And then, I swear to God, they bitched about the minutes not being posted in a timely manor. I swear. You can't make this stuff up. And still when it was pointed out by Councilman Burns that minutes were not a scheduled necessity and then when it was pointed out that all the damned open records requests were a priority which pushed the minutes back Councilmen Fuller and Perkins insisted the office staff simply could not do the job. Right hand to God.
Former Mayor McIntyre corrected everyone in the room on the expenses incurred for last years unsanctioned and as yet unwarranted investigation. I vote we ask the former Mayor to go over all our books. I'll bet she can save us a fortune. Oh wait. She and her hubby and friends have gone over all the citys' books. Not sure why she was working so hard to downplay the expenses. Kathryn? are you soaping the skids for Tamis' re-election campaign? You're gonna need more soap hon. Especially after that "How dare they" (ask for records) comment from Councilman Perkins. Councilman Perkins I want to thank you personally for mentioning how much damage you think this blog has done to our community. I know how much you believe that whole pesky free speech thingy fouls things up. God forbid we know what the hell is going on with our government. And thanks ever so much for driving a wooden stake in to our Tuesday evening's heart. Yes folks, it's the whole shall vs must. Everyone in the room got it. Everyone. OK not everyone. She was actually arguing with the city attorney. Go get a soda and some popcorn folks, This will be the longest 104 days ever recorded by man.
Sitting down? Officer Milliken delivered an envelope to Council during unscheduled visitors. I had to confirm it but confirm it I did. It was a vote of no confidence in our interim Chief of Police. Signed by the other officers. Now what? OK Councilmen Perkins and Fuller lets take it from the top. How is that whole morale thing working out for you now? Yeah, the one you patted your ass on the back for a couple of meetings ago. Please use small words so I don't get confused.
Not sure but I think a couple of raises were going to be offered. My brain had resumed its normally soft state by then. One can only take so much.
The City agreed to issue a license for right of way use to Franks up coming place. I'm stoked about this. I told Frank I'm coming over Friday to get the scoop. I also mentioned we could be looking for a sponsor for the Mardi Gras Parade and Frank likes it! I'll post it here when I get it.
They talked about relocating the Farmers Market to Okies' Corner but it was tabled.
To Pam, call me. I honestly want to offer my services as a peace broker between you and your neighbors. I really do. Your ball.

It took everything I had not to strangle Tami. My tongue is sore from biting it.

Could McMillian be angry about shift changes (natural consequences)? Could he be disappoint that Kenny has seen the light? If we start losing good cops like Marcus and Ross someone has to be held accountable. I vote for Tami and Jackie.

Vern, Plz line up a Jarboe Jam in 104 days so we can officially celebrate the END to the WORST council EVER.

Craig said...

I was at the meeting and feel your pain Allan. It was one of those you had to be there evenings. I do want to throw out a question though and see what folks think. Tami got with a handful of officers and listend to them complain about morale within the dept. After talking with them she throws an item on the agenda to fire Paul. Vern jerked it off the agenda and the fireworks began. It has cost us probably north of $70,000 or $21,000 if you believe Kathy. Since this summer when Tami single handedly solved the morale problem within the dept, we have had one officer resign allegedly in part to the way Deniese treated her and another officer is gone but I couldn't hear the reason. Then during the meeting McMillian, one of the officers that originally complained in a very damatic display served the council a "presentation" as he called it providing them with a copy of a no confidence vote against Kenny Cook another officer that had complained. As Allan would say you can't make this stuff up. OK, now my question. Who do we investigate now? The officers that are now complaining about Cook who originally complained with them or Cook who is now being complained about by the officers he originally complained with. Please somebody help me with this. I just can't wrap my mind around it. OH yea, Allan might have missed this. The Three stooges voted to force Vern to advertise for a Chief even though there is no budget, no job description, no benifit info or anything to tell prospective Chiefs. I think they want Vern to present a Chief to them within say ....less than 100 days or so. Sunshine and Kathy have turned up nothing in their whatever they are doing, Their political machine that has been underground for years has been exposed by the blog and is falling apart, Arlene finally voted against her buddies, the police are fighting amongst themselves and our council majority seem totally confused as usual. Well we are off to a great start so far this year.

I honestly think we would be better off not having any more CC mtgs. until J and T are no longer behind the table. This city is not moving forward nor is it making any progress. They turn it into a dysfuncional council that only know drama and anxiety as a way of being. They do not function in their role. They cannot lead. They spin their wheels and want the spotlight. That is one bad combination. God help us.

Wondering if Kenny can relate a bit to what Paul experienced. Kenny only was hit by the tip of the iceberg where as Paul was slammed by the entire thing.

Craig, There is no point trying to understand it. Pretend you married into a very dysfunctional family without knowing it. You just met the family at, let's say, Christmas. There is one drama after another until your head is spinning. Dinner is spoiled by a huge fight and some of the kids have to leave prior to opening gifts since their dads is drunk. You lay in bed that night trying to put the pieces together. It is pointless since the pieces don't fit.

The 3 blind mice (and NS friends) have spun a web with few left untouched. The best we can hope for is minimal damage to come and to accept there will be no progress or growth.

I like the idea of contacting Gregg Abbot. Perhaps the State Attorney General will listen. I knew his wife a few decades ago when they lived in Houston. Let me see what I can do.

What about the audit of the credit cards?

Crystal Rose said...

Well I must admit, it gave us a few good laughs last night rightly or wrongly!

I still believe we live in a little piece of Paradise and need to hold on to that, just some of the Buccaneers need to be made to walk the plank!!!!

Anonymous said...

Let me see if I can answer your question, Craig. McMillian, a NS ally, is pissy since his former buddy, Kenny, has realized his mistakes of the past and is rising to the occassion - distancing himself from NS and trying to do the job as chief. A job he had no idea was so challenging. He finds the need to delegate and now understand why Chief Shelley had to delegate much to Tina.Kenney has renewed admiration for Paul wondering how Paul ever managed the two jobs when he finds just being chief tough.

McMillian and Deneez still think they have some power from tami.Not that they ever did. So they think they will have some influence with Council. Way wrong.

If I am off base here plz correct me. It is such a tangled mess. If quality officers such as Ross and Marcus signed the darn thing I will be very disappointed.

Here is your answer.Who created this mess? The 3 stooges are the problem. The residents needs to pursue getting assistance from the State's Attorney General Gregg Abbott regarding numerous violations of the open mtgs act. Here is the link to his contact page. We can email, snail mail or call.

https://www.oag.state.tx.us/agency/contacts.shtml

Yes it will take some of our precious time. We want to preserve our slice of paradise therefore it is worth the time.Plus think of the glory we will feel when they are given criminal and civil penalties.Justice will be served.

Could someone plz post what police officer signed the petition against Kenny?

We can't afford a new Chief. Why can't council ONCE try to look beyond their noses and see the future impact of their lame decisions.

NO ONE cares about the audit of the credit cards.

The last thing the city office needs is a volunteer. Unless properly trained to handle anyone that comes in, they will constantly be asking for assistance from the "girls". In other words the "girls" could probably handle things faster.

Sorry Barbara, I am no fan of yours. I think your chatty ways would deter the staff. I do not trust you either and fear you could not keep confidential things private.

Don't worry, Duhniece at 12:41, you've still got The NS ear and they're pushing for another audit. You guys are grasping for straws and tearing the City down as you go. It must be so sad to live life focused on detroying others because your lives are so pathetic. Karma's a bitch, especially if you are. I pray all of you get yours tenfold. (that's both hands, tammy)

I am stunned Tami discovered last night that the "should" and "must" wording was to amend an old ordinance. She thought council was drafting a NEW Ordinance.

You can't cure stupid.

Crystal Rose said...

Anon at 7:57 I hope your plea is actioned by many!!

Suzanne said...

I could not attend last evening's fiasco. Was the OLD ordinance rewritten and did it pass? Was MUST or SHOULD used?

Not sure which is worse: attending the mtgs. and leaving baffeled and angry- which leads to a sleepless night. Or not able to attend the mtgs. waiting on news from the blog.

As awful as they are I think I would rather be there. Thanks for all the updates on the blog.

Yes it was re-written and yes it passed with SHOULD thanks to Arline who is not as much of a Stooge as some make her out to be.

All PD signed the no confidence petition against Kenny except the 3 reserve officers. Those who did not sign are Charles Akins (the salt and pepper haired officer there last night in plain clothes who is a Paul supporter), Tim Anderson, and Sturrock. All the rest signed, including Denise, Ross and Marcus.

Tami did not vote to give Kenny a temporary raise last night night so it looks like NS is one step closer to getting their candidate for Chief seated, being one of the two that Tami mentioned in her original complaint, Denise or Ross. God help us if we have a whore for Police Chief.

Rob Scherer said...

I, as well attended CC last night to the bitter end. It lasted until 10:00. Those of you who left early, missed our council at its finest. I spoke regarding the credit card issue stating before we investigate, we need procedures put in place regarding the usage of the city credit cards. Please correct me if I am wrong, but wasn't this topic voted on several meetings ago, but yet nothing has been done to correct possible future problems. It seems council wants to go down the same road as they did during the first fiasco and investigate issues where no procedures were in place, and nothing was found improper. One would think council would learn a lesson from the first round of nonsense, and put procedures in place ahead of an audit. A member of council accused me of not wanting to look into this matter. That could not be further from the truth. Our city's officials need to be held accountable, but there is a right and wrong way to go about it. PROPER PROCEDURE has been my issue from the very start. PROPER PROCEDURE has not been followed in the past, and has cost our city thousands of dollars needlessly. Councilman Perkins questioned Vern last night if she should have brought her issues before council. The answer to that question is YES, and maybe all the expense and turmoil could have been avoided. If council is so concerned about credit card usage, don't you think proper procedures need to be in place so they can get a good nights sleep, and not have to worry about their preceived notion of future card abuse. I welcome an audit. When all is said and done, our city's officials will be cleared again. How many days Allan.

Tami, do you plan to you list your house with a local realtor?

Anonymous said...

If the search for a new chief is done correctly:

a budget for his salary and benefits must be passed by CC first

creditials must be predetermined and included in the ad

there needs to be an interview team of the Mayor, the City Admin. and possibly a resident.

The team selects three candidates to present to Council (we could only hope to be so lucky to get that many with strong creditials and experience considering the salary will be on the low side.)

Perhaps a chief without former CLS experience would be a good thing. Kenny could go back to being asst chief - thankful he is out of the hotseat.

If the search is conducted professionally there is no way candidates could be selected prior to our next election. In other words the new chief, an outsider, could begin his career here with a new council - ones from the planet Earth.

Duhneez is commited to a lifetime of graveyard duty along with McMillian.

Yesterday I sent an email to the AG office about the 3 of them co-sponsoring agenda items at the past two meetings and them conpiring outside of council regarding our former Police Chief and his wife. I have not had a reply. If any of you do get a reply, please post on this blog the email address of the contact person you sent it to. I addressed mine to the information email address. Its time for us to take back our city and we obviously need some outside help.

NO local realtor would list Tami's house. Her poor reputation proceeds her since they have trouble selling her neighbors' homes. Think of all the negative energy in the place. Yuck. It would have to be gutted, bleached down and have a priest get the devil out. For sale by owner may be her best bet IF her husband is the only one that deals with prospective buyers.

Just for the record, since I am a realtor, I want everyone to know I did NOT write the post above at 10:26.

I just heard back from the Attorney General's office and here is what they said:

In the light of Roselyn's blog above here is the information necessary for persuing further, looks like we need a lot of forms if someone is going to get any?

OPEN MEETINGS & PUBLIC RECORD COMPLAINTS

A CITIZEN'S COMPLAINT form will need to be completed. This form is available through the Office of the Criminal District Attorney.

Once completed, it will be referred to a prosecutor for review. Requests for investigation of these issues are accepted at the following address:

Your fast too, Crytal Rose. I just saw the DA does. not accept email inquires. I think a few residents work in Galveston. Maybe they could get the forms. Would 50 be enough to start with?

Roselyn said...

Too bad we didn't have this information last night and we could have gotten signatures after council meeting. Craig, could we collect signatures at your party and send them to the DA's office all at once? Would probably be more effective that way. Unfortunately I will not be at your party, so someone needs to volunteer on the blog to get the form and be in charge of signatures. I also have a substantial email list of citizens who would probably be willing to sign but aren't regularly at council meetings or Craig's party. I can manually get some of those signatures.

We have another pink party participant who drove to Galveston DA office today to pick up the packet before she saw Janna's post, so we now have two packets coming. She told him we would have many signatures so he said it was not necessary for each person to do a separate form, that we could attach signature page to one form. Will update more when we have the packets on the island and see what the procedure is, so stay tuned.

To all CLS Officers,

I have been behind all of you through all of this and gave all of you the benifit of the doubt even after it was shown Paul and Tina did nothing wrong but after the cowardly crap you pulled last night I'm through untill you earn back my respect and I am far from alone. There was no need for the dramatic little stage show put on by McMillian on ya'lls behalf. That could have and should have been taken care of in the office during business hours. But of course that wouldn't have the dramatic effect the little production provided. From what I understand your attempt to screw yet another boss will float like a 40 pound rock. I don't know where you are comeing from but from this side of the fence it seems this has been done in colaboration with your heros from NS because one person in attendance last night noticed Arleen didn't even open her envelope right away so she must have known what was up and if she did all of the three stooges and their handlers must have known. I can only think of two reasons you would turn on yet another boss. 1 you all are a bunch of disgruntled employees who will never be happy in which case you need to head South on Clear Lake Road, turn Right or Left on Marina Bay Drive and never return thus solving your problem with working here or 2 You are attempting to manipulate the system and help get the person you all and the three stooges want as Chief before they are kicked to the curb in 100 days or so. If that is the case Vern needs to fire every one of you for trying to scam us. Hopefully when you meet with Vern we will get some answers NS already has as usual. One thing you all don't seem to understand is myself and the 50 or 60 folks I have talked to since last night are tax paying citizens who live here and love this Island. This is our home and you are our employees It was a pleasant place to live untill about june of last year. You are employees hired to keep the peace and keep us safe. Not set up political agendas with a rouge council to get your way. I respect you for the work you do but at this point myself and many others are discusted with this apparant attempt to manipulate us into doing what you want. Since McMillian didn't have the courage or respect to speak and none of the rest of you had the stones to show up and let all of us lowly citizens know what you all are up to we can only speculate. The good news for all of you is there is plenty of blog space for you to respond and explain your concerns to the citizens of this community that pay your salary. Then sign your name just like I have. Do any of you have the respect for us to do that? Your NS buddies sure don't. I may be one of the most outspoken citizens but trust me I am part of a large group that feel like I do. As always if you respond and there is a good reason you are raising hell over a superior for a second time within a year I will apologize to each of you individually. If not I will fight this to the end. The ball is in your court officers.

To everyone else,

If nothing else this should get me a few tickets over the next few months.

I may be off base but I think Kenny has realized he was led down the wrong path by NS and truly regrets what has happened over the past 7 or so months. If I were King for a day. Kenny would have been made Chief this morning and there would be an ad for police officers not a new chief and unless these officers can give a good explanation as to why they are never happy I am sticking with that idea.

Great job on the whole morale thing Tami! What a freakin waste of time you and your two pals have been on council.

Yes I'm pissed off and everybody else needs to get involved and pissed off as well. Things are getting worse not better.

Craig, maybe you should wait and see what happens, or what was intended by a "no confidence" vote before going off completely.
A lot of us are frustrated also, but rants based on hearsay and assumptions only seem to be adding to the problem.

I will not sign my name because some people here have a tendency to be completely irrational when it comes to an opinion that doesn't mirror the hatred that is typically spewed.

AND - (this probably won't help), but I think Tami is a pawn. I have no respect or regard for her. Jackie was a DumbA all along, hell even Kathy and Bernie knew that. So when other anons respond and call me multiple variations on officer Denise's name you will be wasting your time and probably entertaining her.

Great post Craig. I am with you. I bet they are too lazy to do a job search and they are so wrapped up in the web they think they run the show. I hope Vern fires them.

The information that is missing includes what are the reasons they are now unhappy with Kenny. Did the envelope contain a clue to this or was it only a list of signatures.

I hope they realize the new Chief could be a real bastard that has them longing for the day Paul was in the position of Chief.

Kenny is only the interim Chief. This never meant he would be Chief and/or that he was qualified to be Chief. Kenny is a good guy but he isn't capable of doing the Chief's Job and apparently the Officers under his command have spoken out to confirm what they know. The "vote of no confidence" confirmed that and it showed the Police Officers are working together now to improve the conditions in the department. Kenny delegates his duties to other's because he doesn't have the ability to do it and/or the time. If you haven't noticed he isn't in the office very much. Guess where he is at, on his motorcycle doing escorts. Best of all worlds, receive two paychecks for the same time and have someone else responsible for your duties. This kind of behavior doesn't endear yourself to the people who you are pushing your duties off on to. Paul has okayed this behavior and put him in for a raise because Kenny has is nose so far up Vern and Paul's ass each morning that he can't see blue for the brown pile blocking his vision. Oh, the comment about night shift for certain employees as punishment for speaking out just opens more doors for problems for the leadership (LOL) of the city. Apparently they took the classes while chewing on the lead pencils for they dam sure didn't learn anything about how you treat employees and the repercussions if you pull these kind of stunts. I heard mention there was an attorney from Galveston in the meeting who didn't return after the break for discussion on a settlement on another mishandled employee situation. Dumb and Dumber never seem to learn. By the way, thanks to all those for inviting the Galveston DA to come check us out. Do you really think it will be one-sided and the DA will only look where you want them too? Not in this lifetime. Paul will fall and the bookkeeper will be the first Victim. The 18k dollar payoff isn't for a job well done but not to tell where to find the receipts, bodies and to calm her and her husbands nerves. She can't even get out the Minutes in five months. I just can't thank you enough for inviting the rat killer up from Galveston. You guys are great, especially Roselyn the Mighty Mouth. I hear talk that the Whiner may be looking for a new job for falsifying time in Kemah. Your wife should have taught you better. LOL

Craig said...

Hey 536,

I don't have to wait to see what happens my complaint right now is how they have handled every thing from last June untill last night. I have offered to apologize if they have a good reason to screw Kenny but I am wiiiling to bet I will not have too. I am positive one of my guesses is right. If I am wrong I will kiss Kathy on the lips on the club house deck. OK, I won't do that but I am sure somthing not right is brewing.

Anonymous said...

I agree completely anon 5:52. Having some answers WILL help. However, at this point we don't have answers. Therefore, I beleive we shouldn't go off on the police department just because we're tired of picking on the hillbilly and the trash collector. WE DON'T KNOW. Craig admits that he doesn't know but then he goes on to make a couple of assumptions, and accusations even. That doesn't really fit the image of "small town paradise" that we all claim to want back. I support Paul. I support Chief Cook. I also support Denise and Ross.
My position is that we continue to blame Tami and Bernie for this mess. Give the officers and the department the respect they deserve UNTIL they prove otherwise. You may think that somebody within the department has betrayed you already. I choose to wait it out and be sure.
Tami started it - or likely was directed to start it.
Craig is right when he states facts. If Tami had a problem she could have brought the problem to council instead of the ignorant, backwards, ill-advised and obviuosly hopeless path of just trying to fire Paul Shelly without a fight from his loyal supporters.
From what I know Craig is a great guy. He's very frustrated right now....
Not may people post without an extreme opinion. You notice that?

Yea Yay Yeah I was successful contacting a friend (from the late 80's) that was very good friends with Gregg Abbot's wife. This was back in time, right after he had his jogging accident. Any way she is not as close to his wife as she once ways but said she would pass on the email. If we don't get the response we need from the DA we can possibly approach the State DA, too. The three stooges are going down, down, down.

Too scared to sign my name. Don't want to end up in the Kemah jail

The reason Craig is frustrated and makes assumptions is because he has no other choice since none of us are privy to any factual information about anything regarding our own city. Only CC and apparently NS gang ever seem to know the truth yet refuse to share any insightful info with any of their citizens. This mess has been getting worse and worse and the morale is getting worse and worse and yet still no one seems to know anything-the citizens don't know what's going on and the council doesn't know how do their job correctly or ethically. I don't think the problem is that no one is willing to believe anyone in the PD did anything wrong, but it's the way it's been handled from day one: secretively and manipulatively and unethtically and incorrectly. We just want the truth. And we should be able to get it without the secrets and manipulation and being told to "bring it" and "F you" by council and without being accused by Bernie of being cyber bullies, lol.

I don't know who 606 is but if it is one of our Officers responding to my request. I am seriously concerned. It seems though they have alleged information only an insider would have. The person that wrote the post is clearly unprofessional, vulgar, has 4th grade writing skills at best, makes serious accusations that he or she probably can't support and clearly doesn't believe in innocent until proven guilty. If this is one of our officers I am now more in favor of a little house cleaning. Maybe 733 is right and its Lace. Lets hope so.

Anonymous said...

606 could be one of many of the former CLS officers. I bet William Young is foaming at the mouth thinking there will be an opening here for a new Chief. He has certainly come to the realization there is NO WAY he will win his feeble attempt at sheriff. There were several other fired officers that bashed Paul in the GDN's comment section this past summer. I don't think it really matters since the post does not contain any real information.

I was hoping there would be some real facts of what are the problems that are so bad they had to sign a petition. My guess it is just more of the spinning of the web. Lots of people are getting off on the drama. Which is much more a reflection of themselves than those they are trying to attack. Lame. Sick. Negative. Counter-productive.

I have little hope until Jackie and Tami are gone with the exception of any help we can recieve from the DA.

Vern ordered Kenny to call a meeting with all of the Police Dept to demand answers? Here again, Dump and Dumper go in there with these Police Officers thinking they are going to run over them without there being legal repercussions??? They need to rethink it and take the "vote of no confidence" for what it is. The City already has enough lawsuits pending from Police Officers without creating more (so far the City has loss everyone of them). Craig, I wonder if you would have the balls to walk up to your Bosses and give them them a letter of "no confidence" (not really, your mouth always overloads your ass). Had your source kept their mouth shut, only those receiving the letters would have known the contends. But no, Burns jumped up and ran to Paul who then handed it to Kenny instead of accepting it and having a discussion in Executive Session as to how to handle it. The only unprofessional one is Burns and your source. Speaking of Rogers' Rules, Burns may be in violation? A call to the Attorney General's Hotline maybe in order to determine if that is the case? Al Burns is in violation and Milliken did do it right.

Interim Position, vote of Lack of confidence, not in the office because you are doing Police Escorts, assigning your duties to others, failing to follow up on the evidence room and not keeping Paul out of the department but in fact acting as the de-facto Paul. What more do you need to know?

7:23
"barley makes sense". You are really intelligent. LOL I guess you are talking about horse sense. LOL

PS: I not one of your Officers. Who gives a raise when your work is months behind??? People think for yourself instead of following like sheep these few blowhards. Paul and Tina quit under investigation. Paul tried to cut a number of deals to get out from under and yet a few keep spouting their innocence. There is a difference between innocence and a lack of convict-able evidence. The vote for City Council re-election may reflect that not everyone is buying this Blogs Blowhards views and twist on the facts.

Anonymous said...

Wow. That was pretty mean. You can be whatever you want to be.

Al Burns is one of the good guys. 95% of us will back him. Which of Roger's Rule did he violate? Why would an Exe.Session be needed? In other words, what are you talking about?

Considering you are not one of our officers, tell us where you are getting your information?

The city sec. deserved her raise. If you could comprehend what was discussed the previous minutes were never approved by council.

My first guess as to your idenity (especially after writing the last paragraph about not being able to follow a council mtg let alone comprehend what was being said) anon 9:22 is more than likely Tami.

Are you suggestion by your last sentence someone on council is running for re-election? If I could quote you, "Bring it on." I predict the largest voter turn-out ever.

Anonymous said...

Sounds like Al Burns did the right thing to me. Did he spoil a NS plan? Way to go Al! NS seems to be on a loosing streak.What goes around comes around.

Anon 9:22 does sound like Tami. Childish, self-centered, pissed the "plan" with McMillian did not work. Rambling. That is her M O.

Feeling a little threatened the sheep are heading to the DA?

You are considering running again. Seriously? How you escaped not being sued since June is beyond me. I am looking forward to Meet the Candidate Night if that is the case. The voter turn-out will be a record breaker if that is the case.

If anyone had any viable information to bring down the Shelleys and their "followers" it would have already been produced after all this time. They wouldn't have waited to approach the DA, the press or anyone.

It's called grasping for straws. All the name calling and finger pointing just serves to deflect attention from the ns schemes to buy more time before the hammer drops in May.

Craig said...

No response is really necessarry to 922's post. Just like Bernies posts I welcome 922 to post more often. They really show the depth and intellagence level of an NS gang member. Keep them coming 922.

I hope Tami and Barbra run for NS. That would make for an entertaining meet the candidates night. Tami would actually have to answer for the past years BS and explain why nearly everything she said and promised in her last candidates night was a lie. Barbra....Well anyone who was at the CC meeting Tuesday knows the agony that will cause the crowd. Does anybody read her blog where she said she was going to discuss things like which is the best laundry detergent? I posted tide was the best before I lost the address. Could someone post it so I can start reading her hard hitting reports and post again? Since I posted there last I found a generic soap I think I like better than tide so I need to get that on her blog.

Craig said...

One last thing tonight. Does anyone have a copy of Tami, Jackie and Arlenes campaign promises from the last election. It would be fun to post them here on the blog and see what panned out and what didn't. I remember some of Tamis and they don't even come close to what we actually got.

Anonymous said...

Tami's campaign promises were posted here last summer. The low lites that I recall include: working towards a degree in COMMUNICATIONS and POLITICAL SCIENCE. Imagine that! The chick can't form a complete sentence orally. She destroys the English language in any written attempts. I believe she stressed, "listening to the residents". Instead of that she was like velcro on any piece of dirt she could find. She sought out others who liked dirt. Together they dug one great big hole.

This is not worth my time or energy. I am done with her.

Good Morning CLS,

Since I have had a headache since Tues night's meeting I have found a great remedy. I wrote a letter to the DA that I will mail along with my checklist. As best I could I described the debacle we have experienced due to the 3 blind mice. I included a copy of the most recent agenda showing how the 3 of them are obviously continuing to violate the open mtgs. act. Yes,I cc Gregg Abbott, the State Attorney General. It felt so darn good. By the time I finished it my headache was gone.

I sure wish some of you would consider doing the same. The physical address for the DA is:
GALVESTON COUNTY CRIMINAL JUSTICE CENTER
600 59th Street, Suite 1001
Galveston, Texas 77551

Here is the State AG's address

Office of the Attorney General
PO Box 12548
Austin, TX 78711-2548

I included how the Mayor has met with the DA on numerous occassions. I stated the citizens presented a petition containing over 300 names to recall Tami.

I know it is a time consuming task but this might get us a positive result of criminal and civil charges against the 3 idiots that have done so much damage. It is obvious to me they continue to be obsessed with bringing CLS to an all time low.

Somehow a checklist won't tell the complete story. I included particular's like Tami's statement they already have 3 votes against Richard's revised ordinance PRIOR to their being much discussion or a vote. That is a great indicator they discussed it. Each of you may recall different moments that show they are thick as theives and are criminals.

I included Kathy and Bernie's involvement, too.

Allan, perhaps you can suggest writing in your next blog. For the residents that want to DO something this would be a great endeavor.

Get drunk, pat yourself on the back and beat your chest like the blind mice you are. The rest of us can not thank you enough for inviting not only the Galveston DA but the AG to come investigate. If they would just stop laughing at you long enough to take you serious is my wish for the New Year. A forensic investigation into the credit cards and other bookkeeping irregulars would be eye opening. Using City Monies to pay your light bill, bar bill, outrageous lunches and so on is a crime. Anyone of us who used our employers credit card in this manner would be fired, re-payment demanded and possible criminal charges too. So why do the few pompous asses on here want the rest of us to okay this behavior and condemn the few Council Members who have attempted to bring down this corruption that this Blog continues to support. This Blog and it's worshippers are the damnation of our community for their continued leadership in support of that corruption for their own personal gain. Like how about your drunken golf cart parades, your drinking in the pool and the drunks who can't go to a City Council Meeting without their drink in hand, violations of the noise ordinances and so it goes on and on. Bring on the DA, we support you!!!!

First, it's very difficult to understand you since your grammar leaves much to be desired, but since I'm a teacher, I am pretty good at interpreting what you mean to say but quite simply can't. And here we go again-you're pissed that we have the blog and that we are frustrated and want answers. How is that any different than your ranting about facts and truths being confronted? That's what we've been asking for since June, so it sounds to me like we both want the same thing-the TRUTH! Only you seem to want to do it the wrong way. And shut up already about the drinking if it bothers you so much, and move. There are quite a few of us on the island who don't drink and we are mature enough and nice enough to be able to enjoy ourselves AND our drinking friends, instead of wallowing in the misery you apparently love. No wonder you don't sign your name. I'd be too embaraased to if I wrote all that, too. Have a nice day!

Craig said...

Good morning 859,

Woke up on the wrong side of the bed I see. Your post is a little hard to read but I notice alot of the NS sided posts are trying to pretend we are the minority on these issues. Have you been going to council meetings especially the ones early on? We are far from the minority. I work all over this Island everyday and talk to many many folks who live here. I can assure you we are not the minority. We are just the ones who enjoy reading and shareing on the blog. It also is clear NS is becoming more and more frustrated by this blog as it offers everyone a chance to voice their opinions, both sides, and get information both good and bad. NS can no longer freely spread lies like last election where they told folks on Tindle and Aspen the city was going to take their homes. That was a flat out lie. It is even in our city laws it can't be done but it didn't stop NS from spreading the rumor to get votes. This blog will help sort out facts from fiction like that example. The part that takes effort is sorting out the true facts from the BS. That is where most of us are at a disadvantage because no one is presenting any facts to back up the allagations. I note in your post you are throwing out alot of accusations that may or may not be true regarding credit card use. You are condeming us for not taking it as being fact. Well, how can we? After all of these months there is no proof of any wrong doing only rambling ,vulgar, angry, semi illeterate posts claiming there is a problem. This blog does not support corruption in any way at least I sure don't but where are your facts? Show them to us. NS has shown us nothing to date.

You state the blog supports corruption for our own personal gain like drunken golf cart parades. What? That makes no sense at all. I am probably one of the most outspoken folks on this blog and I don't drink and have never been in a golf cart parade. Our family always watches and takes or neices nephews and sons when they were young to catch beads and candy. I am not clear on where you are going with that train of thought. Could you explain a little better? Further more I have never been to our pool and I have never seen anyone drunk at a CC meeting. Barbra seemed drunk the other night but I think that is just her persona. I remember a while back there was a person posting that was obcessed with talking about folks drinking and being drunk that really didn't have anything to do with anything. Welcome back. You are one of those I encourage to post more often. Your ramblings speak volumes.

I have been in many a golf cart parade. Never saw any drunks. I have taken a adult beverage to CC. Never been drunk at one though and frankly, I don't think I could get thru 2- 3 hrs of listening to Tami's RAMBLINGs without it. Been to sunset many a time. Open my beer when I get there. Never saw anyone drunk there, either. Been a member of the pool since it opened. Yes, I take an adult beverage in nonbreakable containers. Never saw anyone there drunk. Use to see a falling down drunk on Forrest and Pine but don't anymore. I am guessing you have issues with alcohol. There are laws in CLS and the PD certainly make arrests when needed.

Craig, did Shelley at a recent cc meeting, admit to using the city credit card to pay his bill, ( light bill, I think it was)? Correct me if I am wrong, as I did not get to attend that meeting, but it was what I was told. If I was told truthful, then that is a criminal act. Was his own admission, not proof enough? Does his action not cause you concern? Do you not question, how many times has he done this?... How long has he done this?... Has he ever repaid the city?... What is the total dollar amount that he charged to the city?... Why did the 'bookkeeper' never question or bring this to someone's attention? Craig, aren't these valid questions that deserve answers? I'm willing to bet the DA thinks so.

Anonymous said...

Anon 11:10 the citizens could care less about ANY credit card charges. As Rob and Bryan have said (at previous CC mtgs. and on this vital blog) develop credit card use guidelines. If there are not guidelines how can they be misused? Lame. Petty. How many people and press reporers have examined the records? PLEASE give it up already. No one wants to hear about the credit cards anymore.

Roselyn said...

an you imagine going to work at City Hall today? It must be a completely depressing experience. Now low morale in all departments, not just the police department as Tami previously cited.

Who would have thought it believable that in a six month period we could lose Paul, Tina, Kenny, Karen and Jack? The very people who have put many many years of hard work into making this a wonderful, happy and safe place to live and call home. Although none of them live here, I believe they have had our best interest at heart.

So the three council members, NS and the police department masterminded a coup and so far its looking pretty successful. They are now working on taking out Kenny and Karen and Jackie is already telling people they are going to take out Jack and that they are not finished with Paul.

Can you imagine the planning that went into all of this? and that it was done by a small group of unemployed people. And so far, their plan is still on track, although it is showing a few small cracks.

These types of political coups where goverments are overthrown happen in third world countries. This doesn't happen in America, or does it?

Now that Kenny has become a victim of the carnage, I hope he and Paul will work TOGETHER to solve this horrible mess for us. Dont quit Kenny, you have served this community well for many years. You BOTH have support from this community and together you can solve this problem. You both are in the top two positions to do it and we are counting on you both.

Looks like one of the policemen now posting thinks Kenny and Paul and Vern should not talk and cooperate.("Kenny has his head up their ass every morning") Do you really think the police department should be an independent stand-alone department? Its imperative that CA, Police Chief, City Secretary and Mayor are all on the 'same page'.

When the iceberg hit Tina and Paul I started speaking out on this blog. I called the Galv. Co Sheriff, wrote letters to our police department and Kemah police department and now drive around with copies of letters to these departments and the Sheriff's calling card with his direct phone number......I would never have dreamed that approaching old age I would be paranoid of the police. I guess you never get too old to keep learning.

Anyway, I hope the majority of this community will continue to support Paul, Tina, Kenny, Karen and Jack. They caught us by surprise with Tina and Paul but we are now prepared.

Regarding the DA: Several people drove down yesterday and picked up the packets for our complaints. We are coordinating information right now and will hopefully have a plan of gathering information that we all can agree to and sign. Thats wonderful that some are going ahead and filing complaints on their own but we are working on one that many can sign as well. (Would have been so much easier if she had just resigned when we asked her to. Oh well, we can do it the hard way too.)

Word on the street yesterday was there were between 4-6 people getting the forms from the DA. And I don't talk to a lot of people like Craig. Many people will take various routes of action with the forms. Please don't tell people how to handle this Rose. A group signature form is great but don't discourage other paths some choose to take. Someone is emailing G. Abbott's wife and others want to write letters to send in with their individual checklist form. Others are making calls, too. It is all good. The objective is for criminal and civil charges to be filed on Huey, Dooey and Louie.

Craig said...

1110 Now you are starting to catch on. I think that was the most literate post by NS yet. Yes I do want answers to everything but so far NS has done nothing but blow smoke. If Paul did use the credit card and paid it back which ordinance makes that a crime? I want you to answer that not skim right past it. Where you there Tuesday, if you were there you must have been napping with Jackie. What are the rules regarding use of the city credit card? Do you know? Probably not. I sure don't. But I'm not out here throwing around accusations that I can't back up to date. Your post was nothing more than questions and accusations. Get back with us when you have some answers backed by facts and first hand information not I couldn't go to the meeting but that is what I heard BS. Who told you, someone with NS that spread the lies about the city taking folks homes?NS will say anyting to get their way. Facts are not relevant to them. Doesn't it bother you that Some on council tell us to f off, threaten to fight us and tell us they don't have to talk to us or answer our questions when that is exactly what their job is. Doesn't it bother you that one on Council lives in a junk yard was arrested for failure to coply with ordinances over two years ago and is still in violation? Quick reach in and play the victim card. That seems to be the go to card for NS right now. I could go on and on but it would do no good. BRING US FACTS OR SHUT UP. When we have those facts we can look at them and decide what to make of it. We have been asking these questions for months have you been under a rock? If you aren't going to pay attention go play with Tami. She doesn't pay attention either.

Anonymous said...

Anon 11:18 There are guidelines in place and there is requirements for reporting such violations also.

Paul did admit to using the credit cards for his own personal use. No action to date has been taken against him by the Mayor, or against Karen except to offer her an 18k dollar raise. At the same time Karen is months behind in her work and failed to notify any one of this admitted violation, or any others that may exist.

It is time for outside review of those records by an expert to uncover how Karen covered it up on the records including a review of the check registers too. Many times I have questioned what is not reflected in those records. To many times you see "redacted" by Home Depot, multiple tire purchases and multiple vendors, Auto Part Charges and no invoice number, on and on. You are right there does need to be more accountability and if there are violations and coverups then the DA does need to be here. Even though I don't support this Blogs reason for the DA coming I do support the DA coming for I believe he will look at everything and won't have binders on like a bunch of you do. Or just out and out approve of these violations and possible criminal acts as does

Does following the law not include employing illegal aliens and felons?? Using CITY funds for personal vendettas against neighbors?? Supervising volunteers who destroy govt records (permits) for personal gain?? Allowing certain employees to sexually harrass others? Requiring overtime but not compensating for it? Allowing employees to view pornography without any consequences?

I guess it was too much for a former mayor to follow the law too.

Great post, Craig. Once again you nailed them. I have to question one thing about your post. You are a bright, rational guy that is a human being from the planet Earth. This puts you and all of us similar to you at a real disadvantage when dealing with NS. They are not bright, rational people from this planet.Instead of trying to figure out what they are thinking or doing let's try banging our heads on the wall instead. It would accommplish as much. They are too far out there for us to wrap our heads around. Let's stop trying. They are bringing this city down and are against progress. Let's focus on bringing this city back up. I really like the checklist forms going to the DA. I hope mine will be emailed soon since I am on both email list. Next let's focus on the election. Bryan and Carlo are great pink candidates. In the mean time WE HAVE GOT TO GET TO CITY COUNCIL MTGs. We need to record them, too. Everyone with a video phone get em ready!

Hey Jean alias Shunshine at 1118. What are the guidelines? Quit blowing smoke up our skirts and giv us some facts. If Paul admitted it and it is a crime state the ordinance or law.

YES, NS YOU ARE REALLY PISSING ME OFF. I HAVE NOT CONTRIBUTED TO PAUL/TINA LEGAL FUND BUT I AM ON MY WAY.

SEE YOUR SORRY ASSES IN COURT.

Anonymous said...

There was no "masterminded coup". Paul and Tina quit their jobs while under investigation. The rats abandoned the sinking ship in hopes of surviving. Paul and his attorney negotiated behind closed doors with the City Counsel to quit. So far they have survived but not on the job nor have they sued to get them back because it would open the door for evidence to be obtained to prove why they should not get them back, and/or collect damages.

Those innocence Officers who Paul fired are filing suit and are winning against Paul and Our City. Again, how much do we have to continue to pay for Paul and Tina's screw ups? Tomorrow the City may be headed down that path with Vern and Kenny. I wish the City Attorney would sit in on that meeting to keep The City from incurring more ligation from their mistakes, or at least advise them if you screw up it will be on your head "personally" and not on the City's dime.

Kenny isn't the only good person who has had a vote of no confidence. It is a legal way for employees, members of a board, congress and others to voice their opinion about the leadership abilities of an individual. This vote only shows that those who work for him have found him lacking. There is evidence to support that.

I too support the DA coming. I will fill out a pack about the threats against Board Members, stalking, official suppression, thief of City Funds and more. You are right it is time for the professionals to look at the leadership of our fair City and to drag the scum kicking and screaming to jail if the facts prove that is needed.

Yes Kenny, its probably going to look better to the DA if you just fire all of them and start over instead of changing the schedule where they think they have been singled out for retaliation. FIRE THEM ALL AND START OVER. Surely you noticed that Tami did NOT vote for your temporary raise, so you owe that group NOTHING.

OMG, Travis is back. Why don't you guys go sailing again!

Now that the wagon's are circling around Paul, Kenny and Karen, have you decided to go back on Vern again? Dont you know it would be much more effect to just go after them one at a time? You should stick with taking Kenny down, THEN Karen, THEN Vern.

By the way, Larry successfully got his You Tube video taken down but looks like his son put up another one. Google Jean Garst Homewrecker on YouTube. That was produced by Larry's son.

anon 1229, You will have to be a little bit more specific counselor. When Tami was trying to shut down my business, she told the entir crowd at a CC meeting she didn't care about any other business on the Island she just wanted mine shut down. That is also coverd in the general, abuse of official capacity catagory of law you suggested. Could you be more specific as to the exact wording of the law you are suggesting? I bet you can't or won't. You can always do what Tami did when asked a question at one meeting she answered " I know but I don't have to tell you" to one of our council members. Very mature Tami, I almost forgot about that shining moment.

Craig said...

anon 1254, Do you have first hand knowlege backed by facts as to why Tina quit or are you just blowing smoke to slander a good womans name? And it seems to me Paul still has a job with access to the same credit cards as we speak. Not only does he have a job he is still getting paid 95% of the salary he was making from the job he stepped down from. This was negotiated by the NS gang. Great Job. Hey NS I have a lake in the Sahara Desert for sale. Wanna negotiate a deal to buy it?

Anonymous said...

How is it slander? Tina quit while under investigation. That is the fact. Your right, I still wonder about Paul's salary.

Anonymous said...

When quiet here. I guess NS is on the phone with You Tube trying to get Jean's video removed now. I wonder how Larry got them to remove his?

Craig said...

Maybe not slander but you elude that She quit because of wrong doing. You have no idea why Tina quit. You probably have never been in a situation that stressful. There was alot put in to that decision but I can guarantee you she was not running from anything and she cut no deals. It is pretty crappy of you to make her sound so guilty when you have no idea what you are talking about. It would be like me calling you a coward...... No that wouldn't be the same because I know you are a coward. You bad mouth folks but don't sign your name. Show your face coward.

Craig said...

Hey Allan,

I thought of a great t-shirt for the blog. Just put BLAME THE BLOG then put the address. NS would buy it and claim it meant blame it for the damnnation it has caused this Island as one eloquint poster stated earlier and the Pinks could buy it and it would mean to them all of the good the blog has done for the Island. That way you could maximize sales.

Anonymous said...

No a coward is one who runs when under fire. There were numerous charges alleged but due to her quitting there wasn't a need to follow-up. So yes we are aware of the allegations of wrong doing. Craig were you hers or Paul's Lawyer? Those negotiations took place behind closed doors and nobody to date has released a transcript of those minutes to know what the deal was that they struck when they both quit the Police Force. We all know there was a deal for Paul is still here in part. I know, maybe you were the horsefly on Paul's ass during those closed door meetings> LOL.

Don't you have enough of your foot in your mouth with the Police Officers without making it personal with me? A vote of no confidence by 99% of the Police Force is pretty serious and shouldn't have been taken lightly here. Not everyone is meant to be a leader or endears others to follow them.

If the members of the PD are unhappy I suggest they goes elsewhere. Don't know where things would be so cushy though.

It is always hard for a peer worker to move into an administrative role. It takes adjusting to a friend now being the boss and delegating.It isn't easy. Sounds like everyone is having a hard time adjusting. So go somewhere else. Your problem here would be solved. I promise you will find new problems with your new employer. It may take a bit of time to realize the politics within that dept. but there will be problems. Elegible for retirement? Take it and find a part-time security job. Quit bitching. You could be among the hundreds of thousands that have been unemployed for years.

Just for you Craig:

Misdemeanor:

Sec. 31.03. THEFT. (a) A person commits an offense if he unlawfully appropriates property with intent to deprive the owner of property.
(b) Appropriation of property is unlawful if:
(1) it is without the owner's effective consent;

Felony:

§ 32.31. CREDIT CARD OR DEBIT CARD ABUSE. (a) For purposes of this section:
(b) A person commits an offense if:
(1) with intent to obtain a benefit fraudulently, he presents or uses a credit card or debit card with knowledge that:
(A) the card, whether or not expired, has not been issued to him and is not used with the effective consent of the cardholder; or

There are two laws that cover an individual taking a credit card and violating the intended use of it, such as paying for personal services or personal bills or > you get the idea.

Bring on the DA or leave the forms at City Hall where
we can all address the wrong doings here in CLS. Now you have the law for Vern and for Paul. You don't have to say thank you. You would choke on the words and I don't believe Kathy would be willing to give you CPR but a good kick in the ass might dislodge your foot.

Who the heck keeps typing all the laws? Someone with way too much time on their hands. Desperate folks trying to grasp at more straw worried about charges for violating the Open Mtgs. Act would be my guess.

If it is Bernie, you must have hired an assistant to do your typing. Yes, Bernie, they know you well at the DA's office. Yes, they are professional and treat you with respect. The moment you are gone they are laughing their asses off. You have earned your own reputation there. You have earned your reputation here. You are currently on probabtion here with a HUGE lawsuit pending of over 70 counts. You know many of us plan on being in attendance for the trial. Many of us are betting you will not be dressed appropriately to appear in court.When your sorry ass loses in court we plan on showing the video on the large screen, UTube etc.If you move now, perhaps charges would be dropped. Don't know since I can't speak for your neighbors. Just don't know what you would have left here. Wasn't there a girlfriend in Jersey or some far away state

Anonymous said...

Are you saying Paul never had the permission to use this credit card?

Craig said...

Well coward, I mean anon 328

Numerous alleged charges? Wow go straight to jail and do not collect $200.00. What were those alleged charges against Tina? Were those alleged charges the reason she quit of was there other mitigateing circumstances?

The meeting was behind closed doors so know one knows what went on? Then how do you know what went on and what issues caused Tina to make the choice she made? Paul made a great deal Tina made none and to date every investigation has turned up nothing on Paul.

Then you resort to vulgar nonesense so I won't comment on that. As always it speaks volumes towards your character.

I don't have my foot in my mouth regarding the PD. I think the way they have handled everything from day one was handled inappropriately and I have a right to my opinion as do you. I stood behind them untill the little drama show McMillian put on Tuesday. None of them had the courage to be there and McMillian didn't have the respect to even let us know what was up. It shouldn't be a secret from the non NS citizens. We had every right to know what was going on. I have let them know if they do show good reason for trying to run off another superior I will appologize to each of them. However, they havn't shown any substantial reason for jumping Paul and Tina other than a handful of them were unhappy and the investigation showed just that. The 99% no confidence, which is not the correct figure by the way, could be a ploy to get what they want. Maybe not. We will see. Only the police and NS know for sure.

Lastly, you say I am making it personal with you. How can I do that I don't even know who you are. You won't sign your name. Take a nap I think you are loseing it and getting a bit paranoid.

As I have said many times, When NS can give us some facts instead of accusations and random questions then we can all re evaluate and adjust our thoughts accordingly.

Please answer my questions so I can be clear what you were eluding to about Tina

And now to you coward, I mean anon 345,

You apparantly know how to google. Good job. Now we need to ask ourselves if Paul had permission to use the card if he paid it back and did he pay it back. Don't know do you? Doubt it. I'm not going to spend much time on you as you have done nothing but cut and pasted law that says if you did this and if someone knew that but didn't bother to go any further and fill us in on what the city did and did not allow or know or what the written rules are regarding credit cards. Again more NS posts with partial random information that makes them look good. Nice try but finish getting the rest of the information and get back with us.

Bernie or Tami,

I'm not being contentious, I have a serious question;

If corruption was an issue with Paul Shelley from the very beginning then why did you try to take Paul and Tina down based on the department morale?
I must admit you've done an excellent job of steering the discussion towards credit cards and away from morale. Kudos.

Help me to choose a side here.

Real forward-thinking, bright, ethical leaders will be needed for change and growth. The men listed above would be wonderful but certainly there are many more.

We need to get thru the next 100 plus days. It scares me what is possible between now and the election.

Arlene has been a total disappointment. She did not represent herself truthfully at Meet the Candidates Night. If you resign now Arlene maybe you would not be a target of the DA's charges. Don't know. Ask Vern. In time perhaps you would get some friends back. Don't know. If you stay on the path of NS what will you have left? Do you really need the aggravation of being on Council? Something to think about...

Paul and Tina didn't go down for department morale. They quit while under investigation with the help of their attorney. Keep the facts straight.

Craig said...

HEY!!! READ THIS,

Now that Bernie is taking his nap I want to assure you I am not crazy and really do have a life. I spent alot of time posting today because I saw a great opportunity to prove a point. There were numerous NS posts throwing out random sound bites of information and accusations. If you will read all of todays posts carefully, I hope you will see that I tried to drag actual facts out of them beyond the random stuff they were posting. Some didn't or couldn't respond and some responded with partial information but only information that fit their agenda leaving out important facts and details. One common thread is they are all getting more desperate and frustrated by the blog, more vulgar (which shows they are desperate and frustrated) and many made no sense at all. Some may say that about my posts as well and you are welcome to your opinion but if you show up to our party you will be forced to eat two bowls of whatever Allan brings. I hope everyone can see through the pity party they are starting to throw for themselves and through their attempts to play victim. If they eventually come up with some facts we can all take a look and re think but untill then.....

You newbies must think we are all bonkers. We are but in a good way. Hopefully we can get our Island back so you can understand why us oldtimers are fighting so hard to save it and the good folks takeing the beating. PLEASE don't believe what you hear from NS or the Pinks without doing your research and get down to the facts. You will soon see why we love our Island and our sane neighbors so much. GET YOUR BUTTS SIGNED UP AND VOTE. WE NEED TO SET AN ALL TIME VOTER TURNOUT RECORD.

You are now released and can resume your original plans.

Is it true that NS might throw that Barbra lady in the ring? Isn't she the one with the annoying accent seemed to be drunk and the one that went over every agenda item as a non scheduled visitor instead of waiting for it to come up? This after telling us why she hadn't been there because of her sick Daddy like anyone cared. If so what a joke. If that is who it is she also voluntered to work at City Hall for free. That was nothing more than a ploy to get in and be an insider for Kathy. So Barbra is NS's new puppet. Move over Tami they are done with you, your replacement has arrived

Anonymous said...

Craig you are a hypocrite of the worse kind. You call me a coward because I don't post my name, but I'm vulgar for referring to you as a horsefly for you claim to know facts that happen in that meeting no else is aware of. You got to be kidding. There is such a double standard on this Blog it is indefensible. No one wants to see the abuse that Tammy and others have received at the hands of you so called citizens and Blog members. Children should not be punished for the acts of parents but here you and others are capable of all kinds of abuse to cover up the transgressions of corrupt officials. No, my name won't appear here but it will appear at the ballot box, at the Counsel Meetings and with the DA if you get him here. We agree on one thing, I want the DA here too.

I love the way you demanded the laws and facts. Now you have them and you are still whining. Adjust away and stop whining but then again as usual you can't deal with the facts.

Respect - They don't owe you a dam thing. Respect is earned and I haven't seen one thing about you I respect nor do I wonder why any one else would. You and the citizens get their due everyday they come on shift. The Board would have known their feelings and Kenny wouldn't had suffered any embarrassment had Burns and your source kept their mouth shut. That was probably the reason for the envelopes. As far as Milliken, I believe he is the Officer who responded to the boy with a gun who later turned the gun on himself. So that is only one time that I know of that he face death for this City and how many more times have these Officers been there for you that you aren't even aware of. They don't owe you, you owe them and should have honored their wishes to deal with the vote of no confidence within the Broad Membership. Paranoid is thinking the vote of no confidence has something to do with NS (as you call them).

For the new people look at this bunch who threaten Elected Officials, show up at City Council meetings with their booze, approve of using City Credit Cards for your personal use, want to fire an entire Police Dept. because they voiced their opinion, on and on. Go back and read past blogs to see what these people are about such as Craig, Roselyn, Burns and others.

My Statement: Tina quit under investigation.

2 The abuse Tammy took? She started it. Pity party, Victim

Answer: Tami didn't answer questions fast enough for some. So that allowed for the threats, harassment and her Mother to even be threaten.

3 I have no idea what source you are talking about I talk to alot of folks everyday

Answer: January 18, 2012 5:24 PM "Hopefully when you meet with Vern we will get some answers NS already has as usual."

Apparently you had inside information on Vern calling the meeting for the Police Officers for everyone else believed it was Kenny until your Post.

4 Adam was the one who faced the boy with the gun

Answer: No, Milliken. Adam is at Kemah if you want to ask him who was in the room with boy or you can read the Police Report or the Police Blog.

5 I have never done anything to cover up anything. Example please.

Answer: Twist the facts. Just like the above and below.

6 Anyone can see f they read todays posts all of the facts are just sound bites

Answer: You wanted a law, you got two. Paul admitted to using the credit card after being confronted. The law doesn't talk about if you paid it back or if you are going to pay it back. Besides, there is no prove he ever paid it back. That is part of the problem and why didn't Karen report it.

7 I respect the job and service all of our officers do for us. I don't respect they way they have handled this whole situation. I have said that twice now. Where did I ever ask for their respect? Are we reading the same blog?

Answer: January 18, 2012 5:24 PM Since McMillian didn't have the courage or respect to speak and none of the rest of you had the stones to show up and let all of us lowly citizens know what you all are up to we can only speculate. The good news for all of you is there is plenty of blog space for you to respond and explain your concerns to the citizens of this community that pay your salary. Then sign your name just like I have. Do any of you have the respect for us to do that?

8 When did I show up drunk, threaten a public official and use the credit card for my own personal use? I think it was Tami, Larry and Mary that have offered to fight or squared off against other citizens.

Answer: Between your lack of memory of what you write and your paranoid I can't help you further.

Tami, who I don't always agree with, I do respect for she has done a job under such pressure few could have handled and is still handling. You want her job and the answers put your name on the ballot.
