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

My day in court.

Well, well, well. First I want to thank all of you who showed up for your support. Heck even if you just showed up for the show. Not sure about you but I had fun. And between me and you it was a lot better outcome than what I had anticipated. In all honesty I had been advised not to expect much. I was expecting the Judge, The Honorable Miles Whittington, to explain to me in small words that the fact that I was actually arrested lies directly with the Police. Our Police. At least that was the thought of an attorney familiar with the case. Instead the Judge explained to me the error of my filing and suggested this sounded a whole lot more like Slander than anythng else. Slander is a fun word. He informed me that it was up to me to let the Great State of Texas know if I had a beef to settle with our Police. I would say the best part was when he told me to take my case back and "tighten it up a bit and be more specific". But that wouldn't be right because there were so many other best parts. Like when I explained that this case was nothing more than small town politics gone sour. The gasps from the other side of the room made me smile and I could be wrong but I thought I saw him holding back a smirk. It was good to see Mr. Fuller out and about. I wonder what he expected to see. I wonder if anyone else caught sight of the defendant reaching critical mass outside because her lawyer was late. I'd give a dollar for that on Youtube. That would definately fit in to the best part category. I guess my real favorite part was something overheard from the defendant. Allow me to paraphrase " for a drunk he sure has a lot of power" and from one of the guys with her " yeah, we need to fix that" I'll let you fill in the blanks. The more I say the word Slander the more I like it. Slander. Slanderer. Slanderous, Slanderousness. And that goes so well with another favorite, Libel. And bingo! That ties up everyone in to one nice, neat little CLSTIDY package. But before I go I have to mention my last best part. That was the part offered to the Judge by her attorney when he suggested this whole thing would be better classified as Malicious Prosecution. Is THAT a great phrase OR WHAT?! I love this place. See you around the Island!

Now what to do next.....

I actually miss the days when that pill head screw ball with the "variable" accent showed up at council meetings. Go easy on her so maybe she will come back around and give us some more of her comical ramblings.
Whatever happened to her husband? The one that was so interested in the betterment of this community that he felt he should run for office...
then he dissappeared?
WTF? Kind of like that other screwball BenseDINGbat. Kathy Mc. you really need to do a better job picking your pawns. They don't have much staying power. Hell, we haven't even seen Tami around to enjoy the "better" world she created for our city and our city's police department. She's holed up over there like an old spinster. Maybe she will come out for the BBQ contest? Or movie night... unless she was involved with the other hateful hags that tried to get that stopped. probably was huh?

Thank you for posting so quickly. I thought folks would be buying you drinks at Gilhooleys way into the night - just to be sure everyone got to buy you one.

It takes a certain type of person to go through this and have such a positive attitude.

I am very impressed with the Judge.

You have some tough decisions to make as to what to do next. You have my support going forward!

Anonymous said...

Hilarious! The judge gives you suggestions to build a case vs the defendent's attorney saying "malicious prosecution". Priceless indeed. Was her attorney LaValle? Word on the street was he was representing her and my first thought was, that is a great fit.

Anonymous said...

So how do you get your record cleared? If it means going after the arresting officer I say GO! She needs a false arrest in her personal file. Maybe it will help her learn. Maybe not!

Roselyn said...

Allan, you presented yourself well today. Proud of you.

Anonymous said...

Alan,

Please take this all the way with Barbra and Deniese. We are living vicariously through your actions and this will bring some closer to a part of what we have endured this past year. If you need money to feed your attorney and the system, just say the word and we will start planning the benifit.

Who was her atty

Looks NS got their ass kicked again

Anonymous said...

It is your choice, Allan, but if you do not go ahead and take action against Deneese, she has the power to falsely arrest any of us. No one would want to file charges against any police officer under normal circumstances. These ain't normal times. You have what it takes. Like it or not. Perhaps you do not realize the power you have. Take time to reflect on how the blog impacted positive change here. Think about the crap she stirred up being snake #1. The turmoil she caused you and your family. It is up to you. Good luck with your decision.

Did B come out and reveal how many spans she received? No? I wouldn't think so. Did she have any side to present at all?? Sure wish she would post her version of today here. It would be sorta fun to see how twisted her perception was.

Now onto phase 2 - Get the
officer(s) who followed thru on listening to a lunatic.

Anonymous said...

I am real confused. The charges were dropped, yet you still have an arrest record. Is that correct? Removing that would be on the top priority of my list of things to fix. Next would be settling up with our PD. One hard decision until the focus is Sgt. Duh. She has so much karma coming her way... I sure hope Kenny is keeping her far away from our new officer. She cost us the new female officer (quitting). We can't lose another good cop due to her unprofessional ways.


I like what the Judge did today. Would you be able to bring the slander suit against B in his court? Sounds like a sure win. Let's face it, that part could be darn fun, too.

You people should be sheared and put out of my misery. Denise doesn't decide to arrest. The F'n District Attorney said "yes, there is a case". She followed an order. Just like you bunch of douches do when you report to work. She offered AB choices on how he wanted to handle it. Ride with me or take your csr She was respectful and did her job. That's it.
The silly bitch that SOMETIMES has the fake accent is responsible for this.

Anonymous said...

You might be right about Alan's incident but Deniese is and has been trouble in many islanders opinion. She has been on a 90 watch because of her antics she just needs to move on down the road

Anonymous said...

Looks like NS is back. I am sure the DA would appreciate their comment.

Sgt. Denise worked hard at earning her reputation. It is an awful one. Something tells me she would not be able to get a job in law enforcement anywhere else. Unless she changes fields we are stuck with her. Kenny, is that folder getting thick?

Anonymous said...

This is going to be a fun year ahead. NS s karma is roiling like a freight train right towards them. While we wait for Alan to make his next move we can look forward to the start of Bernie " Kermit " McIntyres trials. Does anyone think jean or Kathy will lay down on the tracks and try to stop the inevitable? Doubt it!

Anonymous said...

If B had LaValle as her atty...way wrong, but I agree a good fit. (I wonder if the Judge ever watched her ranting video on Utube?) I hear she is no longer employed. Wonder if she "lost" her job.

The only thing worse than a bad atty is no atty. Guess which former Councilman is doing that wise move? Yepper. JY Jackie. His suit is not going to court for several more months, yet, he is not cleaning it up. does that make sense to anyone? He will owe the city more than the property is worth.

Anonymous said...

When is Kermit's trial date? With 70+ counts, will that be several days?

Anonymous said...

If it is several days I'm going to cash in my vacation days. I don't want to miss one second of that circus. Anybody know of a good restaraunts near the courthouse that serves frog legs

Anonymous said...

Great update for those of us that could not attend. We are many and you know that.

NS conspired to shut done your blog in so many ways. Going after your job was the low point. Coming in 2nd place was having you arrested. That is where Denise went wrong. Not in 'performing her duties' but in being a part of the conspirancy. BTW has she performed any duties since? Has she written a ticket?

Face it, Sgt. you joined up with the wrong side. You lost. And it ain't over.

Tami " " Perkins was the hateful hag that stopped movie night. Some people are hell bent on killing fun.

Sure hope our next CA will support the culture here; fun, golf carts, sunsets, jammin, and so so much more.

Roselyn said...

I spoke to Paul yesterday and ask Him if council had asked him to stay or tried to negotiate anything with him. He said NO.

He told me several months ago that he needed to submit his resignation so that he would have several months to know if the City was going to ask him to stay or if he needed to start interviewing for other jobs. He said he was hoping that we would offer his a five year contract.

He told me yesterday that before the committee met Al told him the pay was not going to be as much and Paul told him he was not interested in taking less.

I doing u der stand how all of us fought so hard this past year and now council is making no attempt to rehireTina or keep Paul. I just don't get it.

Roz, if I had to guess, we can't afford Paul. That is one side of the coin. Kenny got an increase in pay. So now the CA's salary had to be lowered. Not sure what kind of quality CA we can get for what the salary will be. The other side of the coin, and in my opinion, we can't afford not to find it in our budget to rehire him. The false claims of NS has done so much harm. They (the 3 stooges) screwed up the budget with their heads up their butts wasting over $100K on all the investigations to no where. Now where are we...
I wish our brillant Council would figure out a way to make it work. I wish they had a crystalball to project the revenue we will have coming in two yrs from now with parts of Kemah, the new Sandbar and Frank's Chill.
Instead one member did not want to consider replacing a maintance person. I thought that was very short sighted. Think big picture folks. PLEASE.

Anonymous said...

Cutting basic maintance services is no place to begin fixing the screwed up budget left to us by JY, " " and Arlene. Council has plenty of challenges ahead. Make it work and keep Paul!

I hope you had his permission, Roselyn, to write what you did. A part of me wishes I never knew it since it is such a disappointment. I realize it is more than likely a budget restrain. Thank you, NS.

I want the best for him. He probably has plenty of offers with all of his connections. In the back of my mind I wonder how many of the girls will follow him? What if we lost Karen, too?

Anonymous said...

Downsize the Police Department payroll and we can keep Paul.

Anonymous said...

Good point, we can use denieses salary and her buddy the old grouchy cop that hung out at tamis and bernies hours at a time this past year to start with. If anyone from council is reading this, I think you keep up with the blog Amanda, can you tell us why we are not considering Paul to replace Paul? If it is money we should focus on getting the money. You cannot come close to replaceing Paul. If you are in favor of keeping Paul show up to the next council meeting and let council know what we the citizens want. Paul if you are not interested in staying on let us know and we will move on but if you want to stay we can find the money.

Anonymous said...

Sounds like another petition is needed. Let Paul replace Paul!

Although we need to weed out the bad cops we do not need to cut our force size. Do you realize the starting salary is around 35K? I think that is pathetic for front line responders.

Anonymous said...

So let's recap the past two years:

Investigations start (thanks to Kenny's wife's complaints to " " and her mother)

Tina's gone (one out of the way)
Paul's gone and going (let's kick everyone off the ladder on the way up)


Kenny gets a raise AND a promotion and any officer that gets more praise than him suddenly get reprimanded

Hmmmmm

Well what goes around will come back around to those who started all this crap. Watch what I tell you. It is just starting to happen, The Haters world is about to start falling apart.First they get their ass whipped at the Election and then they will start loosing what is close and important to them. They will not be able to even get appointed to a little committee. Oh did I say that ! They are just like dog poop sooner or later they will dry up and blow away!
Later Night Rider

Anonymous said...

Is it possible to receive praise and then do something stupid that needed a reprimand? From what was obvious Kenny does not document near enough. Kick some butt.

I for one wish Richard S. would be more detailed about his committee regarding the PD.

Let's not forget the good NS has done. Mrs. Mc volunteering for the P&Z got so many other quality people to step up to the bat. So there is one tally mark. One.

Has anyone heard from Barrarra? Has she said outloud that she wished she never listened to NS?

Anonymous said...

Denise wrote the blog above that says "ride with me or take your car". anyone other than Denise would have typed "ride with her/Denise or take your car."

Love how she calls all of us citizens who pay her a salary a bunch of douches.

Why is she still here? What a moron.
