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

Happy Monday?

So here I sit, all perplexed, again. I have stated and pleaded many times on this blog for all you noobs to get involved . It's not important, It's critical. Thats what it takes to define progress. Know, That with out you, nothing gets better. Kaizan. If nothing changes there is no improvement. Short version, if you don't get off your collective asses this place will stagnate. Not sure what that means for you? Roll your window down just when you approach the high school. That's stagnant. On to the most pressing question in the hood. Why would an ex-mayor, ex councilman, want to serve on the Planning and Zoning committee? What an interesting question. In my humble opinion there is a game afoot. That's just my opinion based solely on my experience. Would love to hear more from my friends and neighbors. But to elaborate, what do you think it could be? Want to change the rules to let Fuller off the hook? Nah, that's old news and he has served his purpose. Want to re define an ordinance to embarrass someone? hmmmmmm. possibilities. Want to assist in the process to make this city a better place to live and raise a family? HA! What the hell was I thinking....I see the meeting going like this, Arline making the motion to nominate and the motion dieing on the vine due to a lack of a second or Richard seconding the motion for discussion. It could be interesting.......

I believe if a private citizen is able to affect public opinion in a constructive way he doesn't have to be an elected public servant to perform a public service.

Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.

Kevin foley has moved back to town and would be great on that committee. we have several realtors living on the island who understand these concepts and by nature want property values to improve.

Ask Ronnie Richrds who he would like to work with on P and Z. Ronnie Richards has certainly "paid his dues" and we should assist him in making his projects easier by giving him forward thinking people.

Roselyn, could not have said it better myself. We do not need to take a step backwards.

Roselyn said...

Rob Scherer with a construction background would be great on P & Z and he has been very involved in government this past year.

Stepped in that one didn't you Rob. I couldn't agree more Ros!! I was so glad to see more new people involed with things on the civic club. New blood and ideas is a good thing in any location. I think for P&Z and EDC we need people who have some knowledge of the history here and are not too easily lied to and also new blood for new and progressive ideas.

Well, that pretty much drops Kathy out of the running.

She is a disgrace to the Island and the only thing she needs to be running for is the bridge.

What a sad end to the North Shore "empire". Jean, Larry, Bernie, Tammy, Jackie, Barbara, Ted, Chris - where were you guys? You let your leader down. And down she went, in flames. I doubt a spot on the Parks Committee is even possible now.

We agree with you, Kathy, that is is time to put the past behing us and move on. We have. However, we have chosen to move on without you and your vindictive cronies, and your pathetic personal agendas and attacks.

It is clearly a new era. The future is bright for Clear Lake Shores.

Glad the message was sent loud and clear, we have no place for the NS crowd. Your time has come to and end. Sit down and be quite, we have to fix your mess!

The message was sent loud and clear but in a different way. It was like a silent shout. Arlene made the motion, no surprise, and when asked if there was a second there was dead silence. It was the loudest silence I have ever heard. I wonder if Kathy heard it?

Thanks for the update Craig!!!
