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

It is good to see the teenagers keeping the kids' Easter Party going strong. I commend Craig for raising good boys. It would be great to see other teenagers get involved, too. It is never too early to instill community service. I was real impressed with the Porter kids at the soup cook off, too.

Unfortunately, I cannot attend tonight's CC mtg. Plz post some of the highlights here or on our FB page. Thanx.

No Highlights, a very quiet meeting and all run pretty smoothly! Progress was made.......

Allan, I lied? Name the lie. I name facts with you and yours. I didn't want to take away any surprise at your picture. I got that right, didn't I "Bitch". I send extra copies to the jail. Tonight you are the most famous poster girl down there. I hear they want you to come back so you can tell some more big whoppers about the 6 minutes you enjoyed.

You don't recognize your own tactics: back-bitting, back-stabbing, name calling, and just in-general drama "Queen". Save the tough talk for your Dom, she will reward you, I just can't stop laughing at the picture of you in that dress and trying to talk butch. By the way, I love the hat but I remember seeing that look on Francis-the-talking mule too.

Anonymous said...

Francis the mule was 1950 so this puts the poster close to 70 years old. Wonder who that could be?

Craig: Drive on the road and not in the ditch. You won't hit the rocks, the utility poles, pedestrians, stop signs, ducks, parked cars, damage a lawn or .... If the vehicle lights are not strong enough to see by, then park it at night and we won't have to worry about another idiot on the road. Now does that make sense for you?

Anonymous said...

To the 8:48 anon, forget Craig. What about the pre dawn walkers or the bike riders and skateboarders after dark? I would never wish anyone getting hurt because damage to your dam yard was more important than someone getting hurt. But if there is an injury, like a car accident, I hope they sue you ass off since you continue to violate city ordinances. Got that Pam?

Idiot, the drag race is coming up. You're really going to like this. You'll have a lot of people to photograph.

Wouldn't Bahbraw have violated the same law she (encouraged by Kathy and or jean)violated? Didn't she send 270 unwanted emails stealing Allan's list against his requests? Is anyone else as confused as me by all this? Is anyone else very suspectious of Sgt. Denise's role in Allan's arrest?

Anonymous said...

Anon at 848. Thank you for helping me make my point. The ordinance says nothing can be placed in the right of way. The city tried to be nice and said you can put the rocks there but please move them back 3 feet and everyone but Pam, Steve, Larry and jean complied. These four apparantly think they are above everyone and shouldn't have to play nice. This is going to ruin it for everyone. 848 expects me and everyone else to be extra careful to avoid their hazard instead of them simply following the ordinance or compromise like everyone else. Arrogance. They think rules do not apply to them . The post at 848 makes that very clear. At least as clear as the poorly written post can be. No, 848, it does not make sense for me. What would make sense for me is for these four to realize they are in violation of the ordinance and they should comply or compromise like everyone else instead of having a weak council fold to Pam's rambling speech. 848, can you explain to me why these four are not expected to follow the rules like the rest of us? I bet you can't. What's your name coward?

Flying Spaghetti Monster said...

WOW.....Everyone Stay Calm and Carry On (tribute to Val for you history buffs)...you catch more flies with honey than vinegar...lets keep the discourse civil....and Spaghetti is delicious.....MANGIAMO!

Anonymous said...

okay, spaghetti monster, it is obvious to me you have neighbors that don't feel they have the right to place their rocks in your yard and then have the balls to not mow around them. Good for you. I am glad you don't have to make the special effort to mow around someone else's rocks.

If it was me I would start each day with my coffee and then call Kenny to send over an officer to observe me moving the rock over into their yard. If they continued to move it back I would get the orange yard paint and paint a boundry line, with an officer present. If they continued after that I would cut off the part of the rock, with an officer present. But that's just me. What a total waste of a police officer's time.

There are ordinances that either all follows or they become meaningless. Tindel and Aspen are great examples of what happens when laws are not enforced. If Kathy would have been a strong mayor, she would have cleaned up Tindel and Aspen. I know she sent Paul a few times, but ....

Now it is up to our new council. Hopefully they will realize with Chill opening soon, there will be more tax money coming in and the city can take the repeat offenders to court. Don't even get me started on how they waisted funds on the investigation to no where let alone destroyed lives and reputations. Let alone divided this community. Thank you so much Arlene, Jackie and Tami.

I hope Carlo has what it takes to put his foot down on future nonsense. I was not impressed with what he said in regards to the dead tree leaning towards someone else's home. He still has my vote but he will hear from me often. I hope Al and Richard will help groom both Amanda and Carlo to become as strong as they are as Councilmen.

I am looking forward to Candidates Night on the 19th. I hope many of you are thinking of a question that will help others see that Charles, Brian, and Jackie just are not up to the task. Let's pack the place and continue to attend Council mtg. It is so sad when there are so many empty seats. Your attendance matters. Even when we get strong people elected, the opposition will continue. BE THERE. Show you care about CLS.

Anonymous said...

Word of the street is there are worse problems with our PD than moral and organization. We certainly hope that Richard and his committee can straighten things out and secure new officers.

I place much blame on Tami since she went about things ALL WRONG. She contributed to the PD's thinking they could do whatever. Now Allan gets arrested. I hope Vern met with the officers involved. I would be very happy to hear that who ever was involved was fired. Any update on that?

Anonymous said...

I agree with you @ 3:04. I hope our Mayor has met with the officers involved with Allan's arrest as well as the DA meeting with whatever ADA said there were grounds for an arrest. With all the REAL crimes occurring we don't need to be wasting time with bogus crimes.

Do you have any idea what it will cost to have the arrest taken from your record, Allan? I say sue barbara for it and more. Perhaps that is the only way she will learn not to listen to Jean or Kathy.

I have noticed more and more anon trying to draw people into fights. They do love a good fight. I love your hat Alan and hope you wear it again this year. I wonder if all the football players who dress up like girls for the high school events get to see pics of that later in life too. I choose to ignore the rants and BS name calling in the same way I ignore my kids when they throw a hissy fit after not getting what they want.

Amanda and Carlo: there are 10 people on my street (Cedar) that i would be happy to knock their door with you and introduce you. they have no signs in their yard. We can do it separately or collectively.

I am hoping that others will volunteer to you to help you with their street. Possibly the volunteers who walked the streets to collect 300 signatures for Tami's resignation would volunteer again.

I am free after your work day ends or weekends.

bAAAAABRAAAA'S COMMENTS ON THE BLOG (LADY THAT SHE IS)
Civic President, not without one hell-of-a-fight before CC. Please, give me the platform to address and name each of you for supporting him in front of the press. This isn't about an election, just what it represents to women if any of your candidates are elected. I hope to see the look on your faces against the 24x20 pics of the cartoon and the "kiss my white ass in front of CC.
CIVIC CLUB MEETING AT 7PM ON THURSDAY AT THE CLUB HOUSE. COME ELECT YOUR NEW CLUB PRESIDENT AND WATCH THE ENTERTAINING RANT. Unlike Alan who allows us to choose whether we read the blog or not she will shove it down everyone's throat. Looks like the press may be there too. They do love to see there name in print

Roselyn said...

Maybe they will elect her President of the civic club and she can be in charge of the "offended old ladies club". Ha!

Nothing is keeping you Allan from starting your own club. It doesn't have to be civic club. It can be Jarboe Club or Pink Party Club.

On the other hand, civic club is where NS probably recruits and grooms their upcoming candidates so I can understand now why their focus has moved from the Council elections (which they have lost) to the Civic Club.

I remember Barbara standing up at a council meeting telling them she was back and she was Barking! How true a statement that has proved to be "BARKING MAD".......

If Barbara gets the floor at the Civic Club, I am walking out.

That is not the place. It is suppose to be politics free.

I was hoping Allan would get elected as Pres. so it would become a fun club again. He is one of the head leaders of fun. With the City's Anniv. coming up I can think of no one better. I get better information from him than from the Civic Club emails.

Anonymous said...

Police Officers take reports of incidents and follow procedures. The District Attorney's Office determines if there is a case based on the law and evidence. In a case like this, the DA's Office orders the arrest. Now, a mistake may have been made by not having all the evidence they needed to prosecute, so the DA chose to drop the charges and re-file at a later day (?). That is the DA's choice. If you notice in the bottom of the Article posted by Allan, Barbara is requesting the spam mail and IP addresses it came from. With that information, under the new law they will be able to arrest all parties who participated in this "Spamming Incident". So Allan, would not be the only party who could be arrested once that evidence is obtained and reviewed. There has been no denial that this incident occurred. The only question is how many participated. Ignorance of the law only shows your stupidity.

Vern isn't stupid enough to confront an Officer who is following proper procedure and firing an Officer for doing their job will lead to more Lawsuits like those the City incurred because of Paul's incompetence. Your selective law enforcement is going to end up with this City having lawsuits and some parties arrested for interference in a Police Officer's duties. Denise chose to allow Allan to turn himself in and to make arrangements beforehand and that isn't a requirement. If there is a next time, who knows how it will be handled, especially with the rants and threats on here instead of appreciation for handling an "Order" in a sensitive manner. Just food for thought.

You want to change this Island for the better: How about standing up, owning up and apologizing? It is Allan's choice to continue with this but the day of bullying, berating women, ignoring the rights of minorities and in some cases majorities, etc.. are coming to an end (slowly). You can change, endure the Vote, or go to jail. People are looking for change and the tactics employed on this Blog are losing you more than you can see because arrogance is blocking your view.

****Like ordering Kenny to be there in hopes he could stop TABC instead of someone just going to get the Permit. Arrogance and stupidity in full force?

Question: How many are now wondering if I will be arrested if Barbara and the DA get their evidence? I just wonder what it would take for Barbara (and only Barbara can do it) to drop the charges? Maybe some of you should consider that too.

We do need a walking and bike path on the Island. There are Grants for this. I don't believe some of our yards will allow for a sidewalk but that is an option too. League City bought United Rentals concrete machine, maybe the City could broker a deal to use it for our sidewalks at a savings to the City. More Food for thought.

With Allan's choices, do you really believe you will gain Voter appreciation for trying to force someone with Allan's publicized views of Women into a Political Position of Civic Club President, or will your arrogance cost you more votes? Remember these were Allan's Choices and somebody said enough and is holding Allan accountable for his Choices and for failing to respect Women on here, a Political Blog. Allan’s choices are effecting others. Allan, it isn't to late to make better choices and set the example.

Anonymous said...

Please provide an example of Allan's "failure to respect" or "berating" women.
I looked back and I can't find it.
I'm not trying to start a fight, I'm asking.
Before you site a cartoon - you should really consider whether or not that's actually berating women. It was a cartoon. Nobody is obligated to come to this blog and those that find it offensive are free to create their own forum for discussions comments.
I don't see any disrespect for women however that may impact my opinion... providing you can give an example.

thanks

looks like all NS has to hang their hat on is a cartoon. Allan didn't write or draw the cartoon he simply cut and pasted it to his blog. it is my understanding his wife found it and showed it to him. if that is true is she a woman hater too? for gods sake get a life and talk about real issues. what a bunch do losers.

Anonymous said...

Please show up for civic club. We need to take it back. We are not obligated to listen to ramblings - there are no visitor rules for that. I don't even think we are required to be nice. Barbara - Alan doesn't disrespect women he disrespects people who chew with their mouth open. Almost as much as people who talk with their brain disengaged. Keep your politics for city council and leave our civic club alone. Many people have quit coming because they don't want to spend their fun time listening to you or Kathy or Arelene rant. That is a crying shame

Just because Alan berates you does not mean he berates all women. He probably berates men that are as much of a pain as you are. Nice women he treats really well. nuf said

There is a walking path on the island. It is at jarboe bayou park and has been specially topped with rubber in case you want to run as well. Most people bike on the streets as we don't have much of a traffic problem here. Plenty of streets to bike on.

you are right 1147. The civic club is crashing because of some of the people involved. We used to have great things come from the civic club now it's full of a bunch of mean hateful people who are about as much fun to hang with as a rabid dog. this election of a president is make or break for the civic club I am afraid. we can either let these bitter old crumudgeons have the club and let it go down or we can take it back just like we need to do on council and bring it back bigger and better than ever. it's up to us. EVERYONE NEEDS TO BE THERE Thursday. It will only take an hour or two of your time but it will save a very valuable asset to this city. As an added bonus we get to watch Bawwwwwwwwwbra rant. she is always entertaining. I disagree with 1101 plan. Don't walk out watch her make a fool of herself then let her verbally have it with both barrels. It is not the place for politics but we need to get this over with once and for all so we can get back to having some fun. Maybe it will let someone who is supporting John see that he might not be a great choice since she seems to do the talking for him. Bring it on bawwwwwwwwrbraaaaa. We can't wait to hear you make your point in your very articulate style. I hope the new council will get her off of the edc.

ms Nichols doesn't seem mentally stable to me. I'm not a doctor but I saw her a whil back at a CC Meeting she was making no sense and seemed drunk. I also saw the letter she sent to Paul which referenced the red horses. It was almost scarey to read. how di she get on the edc

Anonymous said...

I was at that council meeting where she seemed drunk or drugged up. If memory serves me right, she was an unscheduled visitor that went over every item on the council agenda, and then gave her opinion. Some of the items on the agenda were minor things so she was wasting her breath and my time. There were several of us in the audience that looked at each other in disbelief, like WTF is going on? You really had to be there to believe how crazy it was.

Allan has been on numerous committees and previously served as Civic Club President. Were there ever complaints from those he volunteered with? In fact, I think he was President longer than anyone. I may be wrong, but I think Jan Finnerty asked him to run for President again.

I am currently out of town, but if possible, as a Civic Club member, I cast my vote for President for Allan.

He is hardly the man a select few are claiming. They are entitled to their opinion just as any of us are. This blog's comments are our opinions and we are a very deverse bunch. I value that about CLS. Until this summer, when we became so divided, I don't think it was such a huge issue. There were always political issues and probably always will be. That's why we need informed voters being told the truth.

I hope Barbara will someday realize she played a role in her situation. She stole Allan's list after being told not to. That tells me she probably did it more than once. She did not have inexpensive spam software. I agree what Allan did was not the best decision, but how many of the 270 people called to complain to him? If she never used his distribution list would anything have happened?

Barbara, or for that matter, everyone out there, haven't you ever been pissed and over reacted and later regretted it? Maybe you took it out on the wrong person? If we are honest with ourselves, we have all done it.

On another topic, I have been trying to think of unique ways we could celebrate the City's Anniversay. Both of these ideas are a bit out there, so here goes nothing.

What about a flash mob dance via golf carts? Perhaps we could get a firetruck or two to extend ladders to film it from above in addition to filming it from various ground levels? We could decorate in golds. We would not be the first. A group in Florida did it. Something tells me ours could be the best. Perhaps Mike Bass would let us use his Oak / Pine lots allowing for carts to join in from various directions. Jarbou Park would be another possible location. Something tells me we could get local news coverage. It would be so nice to get some good media coverage.

Another idea would be to add large seagulls in various parks. Similar to the ones in Seabrook. Each is decorated differently. Those would last as a reminder of our anniversary. Perhaps start with 2 or 3 and add as funds allow. Smaller ones (1' - 3') could be sold as fundraisers for individual yards. The seagull is already on most of the city logo items. It also is being used somewhat within the Town Center design.

What do you think? What are some other ideas? Perhaps getting our minds on something positive will help our current situation.

BTW, Allan was the first that brought up the anniversary at CC two meetings ago. I was glad to hear Richard state he was in favor of putting funds aside for this major event.

Anonymous said...

I keep thinking of what attorney would take Baraawwa's case. He will either be an idiot and need the funds or be brilliant and let her ramble for hours on end. Sure hope he gets a big fat retainer up front. Raise your hand if you were one of the 270 who would testify on Allan's behalf? This won't be as much fun as Bernie's lawsuit, but it will come real close. Iam sorry, but I think it would be hilarious if over 5o people spammed her. I hope everyone agrees ahead of time to have seperate trials. Hillarious. What DA is really going to take this forward? Seriously. I see another SNL sketch. Seth Myers doing, "Seriously".

Adelia, according to Craig those rock monsters will jump out and get you. If there is a sidewalk along the street then rocks won't be there. I like the idea of a path all the way around the Island. A bike path is safer for the kids then being on the streets too. Apparently Craig is worried about seeing those rocks at night and lights on the path would be great. Take the money from EDC and Plaza 10 and put it to work here on the Island instead of around some possible shops.

They also said," If there is a next time, who knows how it will be handled, especially with the rants and threats on here instead of appreciation for handling an "Order" in a sensitive manner." I thought it was rather decent of Denise to let Allan have a heads up about the arrest. Not sure what to make of the quote above. Am I reading the cops may get nasty with the next round of, let say 50 arrests, due to the rants on here? Seriously? Didn't barbara say she got about 50 spams? I am kind of hoping there are 50 different people. Not that I want to see my neighbors get arrested but, seriously. What judge is going to hear this case? The only one that will win is Barbara's attorney. He'll be laughing all the way to the bank. Maybe not. The red horses may surface again. I only hope the DA will interview her first.

EDC is for Economic Development not for Island projects. The funds for EDC are specific for Economic development. How will a sidewalk around the island enhance our tax revenue?

I like both ideas, Suzanne. To my knowledge you are the first to bring ideas forward. Both are creative and unique to CLS! If Barbara gets elected tomorrow night, the seagulls may turn out to be red horses.

To Anon @ 1:59 I wondered, too, about the next round of arrests getting nasty due to the opinionated rants here under the comments. I did not spam Barrrrbarraw. I feel left out. Will there be a paddy wagon? If all my friends are going to jail, is it too late for me to spam her? What's her email again?

I get spammed everyday. Does that mean I can sue who it came from? I am getting the software soon. Just another thing I learned from this blog. Thank you Allan.LMAO

When did I say the rock monsters will jump out and get you? You don't have to lie to make your point. Others started commenting on the dangers of them being right on the street and I simply pointed out everyone on the Island agreed to compromise and move them back three feet and wondered why Pam, Steve, Larry and Jean can't do the same and why they can't at least take the time to weed around them. I would hide behind the anon button too if I were going to make up crap in an attempt to make a point wich you also failed to do. I could be wrong but I think if you took a survey the majority would not want sidewalks. There are lots of houses for sale conveniently located near sidewalks in South Shore Harbor. Why don't you get off the blog quit lyeing and call a realator. Just curious, how would the lights on a path circling the Island light up Pam and Steve's rocks? you didn't think that one through did you? Typical NS, a bunch of degrees not a lick of sense.

At one edc meeting Katy suggested the edc clean out all of our ditches and fill in the ones that weren't. Then a few weeks later Barbra was out talking to one of our citizens that was filling in his ditch and told him he should wait because the edc would be doing that. Katy was our mayor sort of and Barbra is currently on edc so if thes two don't have a clue anon at 155 shouldn't be expected to have one either

We have always appreciated the work and the wonderful times the civic club has brought to this island. Many of us have helped to bring that about including in a large part Alan Bachelor. How many events does he participate in and volunteer his time for? MOST OF THEM. People have stopped going to civic club events to avoid Kathy, Barbara, and Arlene and the conflict and fights they are constantly instigating. We have lost that wonderful club because of a few. We need to take it back. Be there thursday. If they want to start ranting remind them that it is the Civic Club and WE DON'T TALK POLITICS THERE!!! Stay and have fun - volunteer to help put on events - sponsor new events (with your time) to make it even more fun. If they can't play nice they can go home.

Where did the money come from to buy a million dollars plus of land? Where did EDC get the money? I have always wondered about that. No bonds, no loan, not enough tax money at the time, so where did the money come from? CLS checking account? So don't they need to repay that money? Like now.

@ 2:12 remember when you were in your early 20's and 30's? Would you really want to hang around your Grandmother's friends? That is how it feels to me. I have never seen Kathy smile. At least my Grandmother's friends were a friendly bunch.

I think you are taking yourself too seriously. Focus on the positive. Maybe you should stay off of the blog, too. Just my opinion.

The issue with the Civic Club isn't age, it's attitude.

The fact that the "old curmudgeon" poster differintiates between "us" and "them" is one of the attitude issues.
It is a club for our community. Each and every one of us. I know some grumpy old curmudgeons in their 30's. I don't want to hang around with them either.
I completely disagree with Kathy's politics, however I have seen her smile and I kind of like her. At least she has the balls to stand up and say what it is that I 99% disagree with instead of what some of us here do. Hide behind anon. Anybody who is going to contribute and SHOW UP for events should be a part of the club. Allan will bring a lot to the club. It's up to club members to decide if they want "a lot" brought to the club or if they want it to be a monthly supper meeting. That's alright too. Not as much fun, that's alright. Some people do not enjoy band on the bayou and city-wide garage sales. Some do. Vote your own way and see what we get.
I think the place could use a little livening up and I think the Civic Club coffers will reflect the invigoration pretty quickly with new membership and well planned fund raisers.

Maybe C Club could put cute little cartoons on the t-shirts. Anybody seen any good cartoons lately? If you have any ideas bring them to the meeting on Thursday...

259 I am talking about curmudgeons of all ages for instance Barbra and Kathy are different in age but both are old curmudgeons in my opinion. us And them is not an attitude issue or maybe it is but it is a fact. Let me explain. I am part of us and I don't want to spend my free time hanging around with them. Kathy, Arlene, Pam, Bernie or any of them. Currently they are the ones showing up to the civic club meetings and most of us do not because we don't like to hang around with them. With Barbra now in the loop I sure as hell don't want to participate. If she keeps involved or gets elected president I guarantee you a lot of us will find better thing to do with our time and create our own fun. When them finally run the civic club into the ground us can go back in pick up the pieces and get it up and running again. It shouldn't be this way but it is. When you have people like Barbra threatening to put on a big production at the next meeting over a cartoon which has nothing to do with the civic club it is and will stay us and them. If Allan is elected money will start to roll in, many new members will join, a lot of people will return to active duty and the fun will resume. Not everyone participateing with the civic club is a them but the thems that are there are running people away. Those 259 are the sad but true facts. All of us need to get to the meeting tomorrow and get Allan elected and send them on their way and get this club back up and running. Whoever is running the meeting tomorrow should ignore any rules that would not allow Barbra to rant and make a fool of herself. Let her get it all out and them can clap and cheer while us elects Allan as president. EVERYBODY GET TO THE MEETING TOMORROW

Anonymous said...

Anon1209. I agree we need to get Barbra off of the edc. What is the process? I heard a rumor Ronnie let Barbra and John represent us at some sort of big business forum. Why, what wer you thinking Ronnie. I respect the hell out of you but what were you thinking? I don't want her representing my city in any fashion. Good grief!!!!!!

According to a little birdie, Allan isn't qualified to run for his dues weren't paid up to date three months ago. I haven't seen it in writing so I leave room for conjecture. So maybe next year, your soggy brains will remind you to pay your dues then the lot of you can pat yourself on the back about how great you arrogant asses are. LOL

If you could read through the haze, I said I would present the pics to CC (City Council) to have him removed. I am not Barbara but have been laughing at you asses who didn't pay your dues to hurt Barbara and the Civic Club. Running out to pay them now won't put you in good standing.

Let me see if I can sum up. Please correct me if I am wrong. The best guy to steer the Civic Club back to being great is not eligible or possibly edible to be elected as the president? With our Anniversary coming up are the serious, devoted people going to let that fly? Our new Council will be in place in one month. We are on the verge of becoming GREAT AGAIN. I say it is an evening to break some rules. Dennis, can you meet with the officers prior to the meeting? I am sure you and Allen C. will want to Civic Club to continue if not thrive. We all have choices and there are consequences to those choices.

To the person that said they are not Barrrraaaaw, why are you taking the pictures to CITY COUNCIL to have him removed? By him, do you mean Allan B.? By removed do you mean from the Council Mtg., the Civic Club,or the Island? Please explain yourself a bit more. I think you meant Allan B and I think you meant the City Council mtg. did I guess right? I think the rules (that some of us have to follow) say one gets escorted out of a Council mtg if they get out-of-hand. The Mayor directs the Chief to escort the person out of the bldg. I don't think requesting it will work. Even if you have big pictures and all.

Thanks Mr.P. I was sure I would have heard from Some of the NS gang volunteering to help Cameron out but none of them has called. Not even Barbra who wants to run the club. Allan and Wyatt volunteered the first day they heard about it. Barbra I'm sure you want to help its the biggest kids party on the island each year. You must have gotten the a number wrong also. I will tell Cameron to look for your call.

The Civic Club? Where is the civility in all this?
Get a grip people this is not political it is about having fun with our neighbors.
The past 9 months have been hard for the members who have been there to organise events with so few volunteers.
Leave the politics at the door and step up to civic pride in your community. I have not encountered one so called Curmudgeon just people trying to be friendly.
I am disappointed with some of the postings today, they have been cruel. I would vote for Allan hands down to become next President, he is the man for the job
but all this back stabbing of members who have done a good job over the last year by anonymous postings is not doing him any favours!!

Anonymous said...

We have very few volunteers because no one wants to hang with the NS gang. That isn't un civil it's just choosing how you want to spend your precious free time. if Allan is president you will see volunteers come out of the walls. if Barbra is in charge you might as well close up shop. Allan has proven himself for 10 years. Barbra and her red horses have shown us nothing except that we should question her stability in many pepoles opinion

Bev E said...

Anon 9:58 and all the other anon postings where the hell has Barbara said once she is standing for president of the civic club, she has not been at any of the Pot Lucks I have attended and neither has Bernie! There is some woman who is upset about the Peanuts Cartoon but that is not Barbara, God only knows who she is? So stop all the crap that has been posted here today come along and vote tomorrow. You have to be in it to change it and where have you been for the last year! My vote will be for Allan I hope he gets in, he was a great president last time.

Anonymous said...

Bev, Please try to remember that NS loves to stir up sh_t. They thrive on creating havoc. They must be mean-spirited souls is all I can figure. I have never met people like them. for some strange reason they seem to be able to influence others. Years ago they could win an election just by making phone calls. Not so much now. In fact there is no way their condidates will win Council seats. (Jackie, Charles and John). They just suffered a huge loss with the charges being dropped from the recent arrest. What Attorney Kennedy left out of his article is Barrraaw was told to file charges by NS (is my guess). NS is trying to get people all upset now. I think they are being somewhat successful. Their new game of the day is to make sure Allan cannot be elected as Civic Club Pres. Not sure how that would be a win for them since I see it as the end of the Civic Club. so be it. One thing really hit home with me was in Carlo's blog survey. He responded that the passion of CLS residents is not always a good thing. I think today's blog is a very good example of his words. Our passion has done many good things. The first example that comes to mind is The Party for Four fundraiser. Which Allan spear headed, BTW.

Note to self: do not pay Civic Club dues with cash. If I join in the future it will be with a check. Are the receipt books' pages numbered? Is an audit in order?

I think tami needs to launch an investigation into obvious corruption and possible mis handling or failure to record civic club payments. Jackie could you put it on the next agenda to request 40 thousand or so to look into this?

See if I understand all these postings: Allen was a past President. The By-Laws were written years ago. The opposing party (Blog members) wrote nasty things about the people in the Civic Club and the work done this past year. Craig can't seem to get help from his friends and is looking to NS to help out with the Easter Party. Each of you chose not to re-new your dues because Barbara was elected President and you were going to show her and the Civic Club just what you thought of that by not helping this past year. Now, Allan, the great savior of the Civic Club is going to turn it around if the By-laws are trashed to allow you, who have trashed the Civic Club on here, to vote and nominate.

I believe that defines the sorriest bunch of people I have ever heard of. I see where that defines your hold party. You are worst then the democrats if that is even possible. I glad some of you don't use the Anon button so I know who and what my neighbors are because this Blog has shown me the mind behind the smiling face and nice words.

A candidate told me to read the Blog to see just what a Vote for you would mean. They don't need signs or debates to beat you, they only need to direct Voters to read this Blog.

I think the Youngin said it best. The young people here need more in the way of a Civic Club. I hope the young folks (under 30) will get involved and chair committees to their liking. There are no limits to what members can do in the way of fun. I also hope new older folks will get involved. Perhaps they will bring fresh ideas with them of what their previous neighborhood did that was super fun. I understand not wanting to be in a room where the majority of people are over 60 and you are 25. We need much more diversity for all age groups. Everyone wants playmates and age appropriate games. As for me, I hate to cook to bring a dish. I would prefer skipping the meal. Could we consider finger food, appiteezers instead? Perhaps A-M bring snacks one month and N-z bring them the next month? I could deal with picking up something wonderful as I drive in from Houston. Let's tweek some things, please. I guess first we need officers. What are some possible names? The only one I heard was Allan. I know he is a heck of a guy but he can't do it all and perhaps he isn't going to do anything. After what he has been through lately, I would not blame him if he did not show tonight.

If the anon at 11:08 wasn't one of our police officers it was someone very close to them. Perhaps a wife or a husband. I'll put my money on a spouse. A bold spouse,significant other, boyfriend or girlfriend. Bold and not real bright or very dedicated. You know the type. One that believes every word the other says to them. Sure hope every cop read what Kennedy, the attorney had to say. Perhaps there won't be a paddy wagon ride after all. Darn, I was going to see if someone with sewing skills could have made black and white stripes outfits for everyone. I am showing my age. I guess orange would be more up to date. Is it possible Barrrrbraaaaw could have been spammed like all of us are without the prevention software? I hope the results are made public. What if in the end no one actually sent her a spam. I hope tht does not mean the spam cook off is cancelled.

I'd really like to come to the Civic Club meeting tonight, but don't want to bring my kids. How sad is THAT, that we can't even bring our kids to Civic Club meetings anymore because of all the DRAMA! I worked many a Civic Club function with AB in the past when people actually showed up to the meetings and everyone was friendly and upbeat. I don't come to the meetings anymore, because I don't care to be around all the Negatives. Thank you, Cameron for hosting the Easter party for the last several years!!! It is sad that a teenager has to step up and host a Children's party year after year, because no one else will do it. We have already lost the Children's Halloween and Christmas parties because the people involved in the CC aren't interested in Children's activities.(Except Fishing Derby...thanks Kimmy) I did a lot of the Children's parties for YEARS, until I got tired of not being able to enjoy any of it with my kids because I was so busy doing for others. Let's get some young blood (even middle aged blood) back into the Civic Club and make it great again for ALL ages! That isn't going to happen with Bawwwwwwwwbraww in charge!

Who would ever want their child around the likes of Allen with the postings and words he puts on here? Adults who want to be fine, our children never. A teacher or scout leader who did this would be fired and yet you want the likes of this voted Civic Club President? This is a representative of CLS and we just had our City Council talking about the classes they took and one was for Sexual Awareness. A Politican would have been railroaded out by the press and public uprising if they had done or said what Allen has said and done. If Allen wasn't so controversial, I don't believe there would be such a problem tonight at the meeting.

First of all the easter party is not a party I am throwing. it is a civic clb event that Ryan and Cameron have hosted for five years. the comment I made about no one from NS offering to help was just to point out they blow plenty of smoke but haven't offered to help.and that is OK He has several kids that are Stepping up and pulling the load. I think that is great. i simplyy pointed out he needs more cakes. would you like to donate a cake or are you too busy twisting facts? again Allan and Wyatt were the first to offer Cameron help. no surprise to me. you go on to rant that none of us chose to renew our dues because Barbra was elected president. I don't know about anyone else but my dues are paid and I don't think Barbra was ever elected president. You are nuts. Keep posting you are the perfect reflection of the NS crowd

If I were a betting person, and I am not, I think a female officer wrote the post regarding further arrests not be as nice as Allan's. I think someone wanted applause for a good job. Allan was very polite if not almost complimentary in describing the arresting officer doing her duty. Well, as nice as anyone could be. If a cop needs validation they are in the wrong profession. NS may have applauded her. 95% of us, not so much.

Anonymous said...

I agree with you 11:20. And I don't think that post is getting much response since no one is real concerned about other arrests. There have been great jokes about it, but no one is overly concerned.
After reading the Kennedy article, I think perhaps the ones that need a write-up placed in their files are the Chief and the ADA who worked together to make such a mess.Hope Vern will be at liberty to make that public. Perhaps a public apology at the next CC to Allan would be appropriate. In fact, I think Barrrabaraw should apologize, too. She toppled over the first domino. Then we can all sing Kum bye a. Plz dont correct that phonetic spelling. I know it is wrong. What is really sad here is NS is loosing it and will cause much more havoc soon. Everyday is a new day for most of us. We want to make the world a better place. They must wake up wondering what crap they can throw at others. I did not receive Baaaaraaaw's email since I did not live here back then. Would someone post it here? Was her mess to report only on the Council's agenda? Really? What a waste. See you tonight. I too would not blame Allan for staying away tonight. How much is a guy suppose to take?

Anonymous said...

If I were Alan, a man I admire, I could see him declining a public apology. If I had to tell my son I had to go to jail.... I would ask for the Mayor and the Chief and the ADA to meet privately with the family so the ADA and the Chief could tell Wyatt they made a mistake. We all make mistakes. Own it. Move on.

He's involved in just about every Civic Club event. He contributes his time. He organizes a damned good group of volunteers. He cooks. He cleans up. He takes the lead when someone needs a benefit or a building torn down. He brings a lot to the table. He doesn't bring politics into the Civic Club. You shouldn't either.

He created this forum for you to come here and anonymously rant against him. Maybe you should thank him when you're calling him an asshole.
If any of you are so offended by cartoons and invitations to kiss some ass then you have the option to create your own forum. Or, at least quit reading this one.

I don't think it will sink in until they look at Council with Amanda and Carlo behind their name tags.I could also see the possiblity of extra strong rants so NS candidates can draw other newbies to the blog to get NS more votes.

Please stop engaging them. Perhaps a brief comment like that is a NS rant.

Let's stay focused on winning the election. The Civic Club may need to disappear for a year. I like the idea of Allan leading his own group. Perhaps the Island Drummers. We will follow you, Allan. I, too, would not blame you for not showing tonight. In fact I wish you and your family could go off for a long weekend. You earned it.
