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

Explorer Shuttle Replica Coming to Space Center Houston
The Space Shuttle Program has been completed, and Space Center Houston will soon have a lasting, unique representation of the program's impact. On June 1, Space Center Houston's new shuttle attraction, a full-scale shuttle replica, will arrive by barge in spectacular fashion, the largest item to arrive at the JSC NASA Parkway dock since the Saturn V arrived for display in 1977. When the new attraction opens at Space Center Houston later this year, it will allow guests to see the shuttle inside and out, including a walk-through interior, payload bay and crew cabin. The exhibit will be enhanced by a host of new displays and artifacts to tell the story of the challenges and achievements of the space shuttle and the team that flew it to hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.
The space shuttle replica was created by manufacturer Guard-Lee, Inc. in 1993. It was built using schematics, blueprints and archival documents provided by NASA and shuttle contractors such as Rockwell International (now part of the Boeing Company). Some of its core parts, including the tires used on its landing gear, are authentic to the shuttle program. Explorer will give Space Center Houston visitors a feel for the size and scale of the orbiter fleet. It will become a Houston landmark, positioned to welcome visitors as they arrive and it will be the backdrop for and subject of many human spaceflight educational and history programs.
Details of public events planned to welcome the new attraction will be announced soon. 
 
Hi there Mr. Batchelor,
A resident found a HTC Sprint cell phone on Elm and East Shore today if anyone is missing it, we have it here at City Hall. Could you please put on your website.
Thank you,
Tiffany

Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are good is like expecting the bull not to charge because you are a vegetarian”

Crybaby Karen when are you going to work on the City's work instead of your extra jobs? The Web Site still hasn't been updated since July 2011 on the Check Registers and the others haven't been updated in years.

You keep ranting about the TX Comptroller giving the City an award for what? You lied to them about the transparency? By the way did you report your extra jobs and income to IRS?
