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's Flag Day!

AND the official Birthday of the United States Army. A dang good reason to see all those beautiful banners of freedom waving all over our island. Happy Birthday Y’all!

A little over a year ago I ran this item in the blog. I think it is one of the best ideas I’ve ever heard of for a fund raiser. The Boy Scouts of America came around and for a very small fee they would come out a place a flag in your yard. If you’re interested please give them a call. Here’s more.

Did you make it to the Hurricane Meeting last night? Lots of good info and ‘tis the season.

Tonight’s the night!

The first organizational meeting for the CLS 50th Anniversary Commenerative History Book will be held Thursday June 14th at 7:00PM at the club house. Anyone who is interested in helping put the book together is invited. The more people we get the better the book will be, and the less each person will have to do. If your interested in helping but cannot make this meeting please let Carlo Ianni know:

Man, I love this blog! Today I got liability insurance for my golf cart that I was unaware I needed. I got a flag subscription where I will get a beautiful flag in my yard that I dont have to erect or store. And I sent Carlo a photo of the first golf cart on the island 19 years ago. All good stuff I would not have known about if it were not for this blog. Thanks Allan!

We got a flag subscription for our house too! Helps out Troop 2322 and makes it easy!

Why are you thanking Allen? The dumbass couldn't find his way out of a wet paper sack. I posted the information about the Golf Carts to protect the ones smart enough to not listen to his rants and raves.

How many times do I have to proof this idiot is just a blowheart and without this Blog is a nobody. How many will it take being arrested or fined becasue of his selling beer and alchohol at the Civic Club Meetings and activites? Are really going to have to be arrested and City embrassed before he is kicked out as President?? Wasn't insulting women bad enough? Remember me, I going to show you what a woman can do.

Here is Allen's words:

And you didn't cut and paste shit from a state website. The Texas legislature dropped golf carts from their required registration roles two or three years ago. Blinkers? Shut up. I will give you this, Keep your kids out from behind the wheel! You must be a licensed driver to drive a golf cart on the street. That was a waste of time. You, buttplug! Go to the other end of the internet and play for a while and let the grown ups talk.

Any teachers out there? Take the above post and let your kids see how many spelling and grammar mistakes they can find. This poor lady is either very ignorant or has some very deep problems. Shades of Barbra.

While you are at it, show them the above too. Show them how an asshole writes. To many conjunctions in one sentence and no verbs.

Also teach them the old saying, "Don't throw bricks when you live in a glass house."

I feel sorry for you. So much anger and hate. Why not just have fun and enjoy life?

So many of us are thankful for this blog. Perhaps it contributed to our great election results. Don't understand why the few people who don't care for Allan read it let alone post their 2 cents.

One sad woman full of venom! She obviously gets off on reading the blog though, as she just keeps coming back......

You put everyone down but those who side with you, call them names, bully, harass their family, tell them to move on, use the law to attack a person when 50 more including the Mayor are guility of their homes not being up to the best of standards or lots used for storage (this does need to be addressed but fairly and across the board with some Christian help in process), looking to use the law again in eminent domain because other's property is in the way of your progress, and more. I could continue but you get the point. I believe you to be the saddest and sorryest lot of people I have ever had the displeasure of knowing. Most times you act like a mob but every down and then you see the real leaders stand out. The Police deal revealed a few of you, when you asked for calmer heads and realized the SO might crack down on your little parade and that includes the golf cart parade. No, I am not sad nor proud of posting here but I look on it as a job. One that attempts to stave off the evil and venom you are spreading. If just one begins to guestion your motives then others may follow, or at least begin to think for themselves. Two of your would be yes men did that by putting Vern, Al and the City Attorney on their ear with sound reason. As long as that continues, you will never succeed in your take over.

I doubt if anyone even understood the above post.

First it was her spelling and grammar, now her words don't even fit into the sentences she is writing. is it Barbra or Tami? At first I thought Barbra but the last post had the word Christian randomly thrown into a sentence and I remember how Tami used to preach from her council seat. Who do you think it is?

Anonymous said...

I don't care who it is. Sounds like one disturbed soul who enjoys anxiety and anger.

read it again and it sounds like it came straight from Tamis heart.

The psycho post included this uncomprehendable sentence, "The Police deal revealed a few of you, when you asked for calmer heads and realized the SO might crack down on your little parade and that includes the golf cart parade."

Do not even think about attacking our traditional golf cart parades. Those are a part of our culture. They add to what makes CLS unique. The police provide escorts which certainly reflects their approval.

Let's relish these women since they remind us to be thankful we are not like them. We have communication skills. Our brains function. Our minds are stable. Every time I read crazy posts, I thank God for my life.

For what it's worth ... there is at least one person in CLS who has admitted, in my presence, that he writes posts on this blog and posts nonsense, simply for the purpose of stirring up trouble. He thinks it is funny and entertaining to see what happens once the back and forth bs starts to fly. Best thing is to just ignore all this and do your part to make this a great place to live, by setting an good example and using the power of your vote.

There is a difference between a few lots maybe having a trailor on them and what JY Jackie has done.

JY has trashed his properties for years. He thumbs his nose at rules and regs. Going to jail, at least once, for not showing up in court for past violations says so much about his intentions and character. I for one want to be in court and hopefully testify how he is hurting this community. Something tells me I am not the only one.

For those of you who are his allies, imagine he was your neighbor.

Or you get to dock your boat along with his. I bet that would discourage you from having friends go out on it.

Perhaps your son was trying to sell a home next to his trashed properties. There is no way the property would sell for its market value.

I know, I am wasting my time trying to reason with you. It will be up to the judge.

Allan,will keep us posted as to the trial date? Many of us will attend.

These acts reflect orders not approval, there is a big difference.


The police provide escorts which certainly reflects their approval.

Just as Nick was ordered to give back the nozzle for the keg.

Anonymous said...

So Tami, does this mean that Nick agrees with you about no alcohol in the park? Is that what you, Jackie and Nick were discussing at lunch Saturday at Jackie's Brick House?

I am still dumbstruck how stupid Nick is to be seen having lunch with a person the city has a pending lawsuit against.

Anonymous said...

I really liked Nick. Sorry to hear he has joined the minority. Some things I will never understand.

Anonymous said...

Maybe Nick is sleeping with Duhneez too. That might explain what organ he is thinking with. It sure isn't his brain. Don't know and don't care.

At least Nick is not trying to hide which side of the fence he is on. I thought he was a bright officer. I guess I was wrong.

Why don't we have the ability to blog on CLSTIDE.com. Are they scared of discourse and seeing both sides of the issue?

Someone asked if it is Barbara or Tami accosting us with her venom and hate. And everyone seems to assume that it is a female mongrel ... Impossible to tell which Witch it is. I suggest we refer to it as "Bami !!!"

Positive waves folks, positive waves. Lets look forward and help our Police officers do their job. The negativity serves no purpose. Let anon have it. Anyone want to help with Movie Night?

Suzanne said...

If the Chief gives orders to provide Golf Cart Parade escorts is he not giving his blessing and approval? To say nothing of added safety and security for a community supported event.

Yep, the officers assigned to such a tough duty need to follow their directives. You'd think they would want to do it because it is fun and community-centered.

Anonymous said...

I would love to hear about any community service work, hands on help for a neighbor or acts of kindness for others the above poster has done. It is not about words, it is about behavior and actions. This community prides itself on helping others. This is why I am proud to live here. Venom poster...What have you done? Have you given time on a fundraiser? Have you donated anything to the city? Have you helped a neighbor in need? THE MOB HAS!

Anonymous said...

If anyone had any doubts about the post, everything since that post has proven them right about your character. You are proving to be a very sorry lot indeed.

I read where they did not agree with Jackie, they chose to treat everyone the same and require the entire Island to be cleaned. Hurricane Season makes this a great idea. Seems a whole lot more productive than court.

Suzanne said...

The Civic Club and I will be planning the 50th Anniversary Golf Cart Parade. I look forward to meeting with Chief Cook about planning the route. Since we are going for the record, perhaps one staging area can be in the back lot of Stewart Elem (with current and past mayors and council members). The residents can can line up at Jarboe and join in from there. This will be a blast. Only wish we had a date. I also hope someone knows how to get in touch with the previous members that have moved from the community. There was a former mayor, who moved away, that addressed Council maybe two years ago. He talked about how special this community is. I think he had an article in The Islander, too. I sure hope he will get invited. Lots of fun coming our way for the 50TH!

Anonymous said...

Like with any other parade, I believe the officers have a duty to insure the vehicles, driver's and passengers are in compliance with the law. Alcohol is not allowed on school grounds. Be careful staging on school property or on the roadway. If you are in violation of the law and found guilty, the sentences would be stiffer. Remember so many of you have expressed such high opinions of these officers and I don't think Cook would be able to legally stop them from acting on a violation of the law. I am for them following the letter of the law just like the example the City Council set.

DaveC. said...

Soon city council will no longer control the Police department, THAT will be the chiefs job!

I hope that is the route we take. The chief should have the ability to hire and fire without councils vote. The chief, whomever it is will need to step up and do his job fairly and with pleanty of documentation to back up his decisions. Only the chief knows for sure, first hand what is going on with his employees. The rest do us only hear things second hand including council. Let's make the change ASAP.

i for one am hoping Tina comes back. Paul and Tina running the show with a strong Council will make CLS better than ever.

yes, i would vote for Vern and Al again. they have proven to have the best in mind for the people here.

It is okay to have adult beverages in our parks and at the pool.

Dave,
LowTide doesn't want input on their site. Perhaps they do not know how to add that feature. Not sure. They could not take hearing the other side. Unlike this wonderful blog that lets anyone post a comment.

Anonymous said...

Low tide is nothing more than a soap box for jean and her gang of unhappy old has beens to voice their opinion and only their opinions. Jean, how about growing a pair and let folks voice opinions on your site like Allan allows all of your followers to do on his. If you can't get the courage to do so at least post here tell us why we can't and sign your name. I doubt you can do either because you all are like cockroaches, you scurry out cause trouble the run and hide when the light is on you. Am I wrong jean.

I just saw Obama now wants a plan to help get illegal immigrants jobs. What the hell is going on In this country. Folks born here are having trouble getting jobs and this guy is focusing on illegals! What a bunch of crap

Anonymous said...

Craig, It is an election year. Romney proposed free college for illegals and now Obama doesn't want to deport kids that went to school here. Both are wrong. Illegals don't pay taxes except sales tax. (Much like Jackie.)

I don't get why legal immigration is practically off the table. No other country allows illegals. We provide benefits to them.

I agree. I guess we shouldn't open this can of worms on the blog. We are having enough trouble getting a four square pile of mud on track.

One last thing. When I am not paying 25'000 a year for my kids to go to college and they are going free then we can discuss illegals going for free. Otherwise no f ing way.

Anonymous said...

Why don't we start with our City? Let's open some jobs up in the City by firing the illegal aliens on the payrol hired by Paul.

Require a business license for all businesses working within the City. Under that require proof of insurances for the company and employees to include a tax ID. Anyone found working in the City without the proper permits is warned the first time, second time equipment is impounded and a ticket is issued. Same goes for those employing illegal's and not paying taxes.

wow pretty wild accusations re: illegal city employees.Do you have proof? Or do you want to defame and slaunder right out of the gate? You want to start your Saturday by pushing everyones buttons. Would it be possible for you to try to be nice to someone instead? Maybe smile at someone who looks down and out? Nah, I don't think you have a shred of kindness in ya.

The only illegal I knew about was hired under McIntyre. She even had his check made out to a different name so he could get it cashed.

To the anon who stated the pinks can't control council, we don't want to. We want them to what is best for the city. It is the previous council that was controlled. Jean and Kathy controlled everything they did. Why does NS Have to twist facts so much.
