Congrats to our new Official Chief of Police K. Cook. And to the two Officers who were recognized for going above and beyond the call of duty responding to a recent house fire. Officers A. Torres and McCarrol saved a guys house from burning down and he was there personally to thank them again. Another thing that popped up was a scheduled Police fund raiser. It sounded great in that they had vendors and all sorts of other lined up. They were going to BBQ some beef and sell plates to raise money for the new bike patrol. The issue arose when The Chief said it was scheduled for the 17th of November, the same date as the annual Thanksgiving Dinner hosted by the Civic Club. After much deliberation by everyone in the room, Council was in Executive Session, it was decided to reschedule the police fund raiser. While we were all going over the details Jay, Dave, Rob and Myself offered to donate one brisket each to offset their cost and bump up the profit a tad. If you would like to donate towards the Police Fund raiser please let one of the officers know or someone in the Office or me.
Some months back I mentioned I had contacted the Lady who hangs punkins at the house on Schmidt at 2094. There was a lot excitement when I mentioned she could be talked in to keeping up the tradition, for our benefit I might add, if she could get a little help. A lot of you asked to be included and offered to help. I was embarrassed for our community when after a few emails I got this from Shirley “Sorry to say that no Clear Lake Shores people came to help on Saturday. I was hoping that some children would be there because I made my famous finger cookies (see attachment) and a chocolate treat for them.
This lady even made Halloween cookies…..
She’ll let me know when it’s time for them to come down. I’ll be there.

“Ranger, You obviously feel the need to carry a gun, but why do you carry a .45?”
Ranger “ Because they don’t make a .46”
