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

Hump Day

More good questions for candidate wannabe's.


Hi Allan:
I have some additional questions you may consider for the candidate’s forum.

They are:
1.      What do you see as the greatest challenge facing Clear Lake Shores in the next 5 years?
2.      What would be your budgetary priorities if you are elected to the City Council or as Mayor?
3.      Would you propose to  make any changes to the way the City currently operates if elected?
If so, what would those be?
4.      What do you believe is the City of Clear Lake Shores greatest resource?

I know each candidate will have limited time to speak and answer questions but these are probing
questions that would reveal a lot about the candidates.
 


My my didn't anon just wake up on the wrong side of the grass. Calm down people. Deep breath. In. Out.

We're travelling so we're missing all the fun. It must be close to election time, as the blog heats up.

For the record, Janet Horton did a fine job serving on P&Z through some contentious times. ZBOA has nothing to do with the Sandbar, rewriting the zoning for them would be a P&Z and City Council exercise, NOT ZBOA. Janet and her husband, as next door residents have every right to oppose such a request, that's why public hearings would be required.

BTW, Sandbar can get up and running at any time the owners elect to meet the regs, from which they were grandfathered (appropriately) for years. No doubt you are already aware of this.

Thanks Jan for putting in your information. I have seen people do this before and would love to hear more about others that I don't know. Looking forward to candidates night. I will say from the comments yesterday that I read that I think Jennifer and David have put a lot of personal time into the farmers market and are doing a wonderful job. I have even heard that louse Dave Chambers say the same thing. I do however think the whold thing could have been answered with the trash explanation. Hope the Farmers Market continues but like the rest of you can't wait to see the new town center improvements begin~

J & D,
You say the meanest things about and to other people when you assume they have done wrong by you but you never appologize even when you find out you were wrong. Chill out

Jennifer Moon-Ruocco said...

ANON, J&D have done nothing but volunteer our time to bring something good to the island. We have nothing to apologize for. Chill out for what?

This blog really sucks and brings nothing positive to this community. I even heard Allan say a few nights ago that the blog has been boring and that he needed to add the ANON button to make it more interesting. Allan, there is FB. Everyone is accountable. Why do you like to stir the pot? For your kicks? Disgusting.

The Horton's purchased the bldg. next to the Sandbar as a business. Then they chose to make it their residence. I never understood why they live there when they hated the bar.

Ha! J & D put up the rope on their own (citizen confiscates city property) got caught, and its Allan's fault.

Now I understand why she hs been screaming on FB about how she has been done wrong by Rozy. It's a smoke screen so she can keep the property for her own use.

Pete Carrothers made an agreement with opus when he was councilman that the farmers market could use the Opus parking lot and Opus could use the city property.

ALAN THANKS FOR KEEPING THE BLOG UP!!! I travel a lot and I keep in touch with the island via the blog. I don't get on facebook so this is my source for things that are going on at home. I don't know why people insist on blaming Alan for what other people say on his blog. Looking at his posts I don't see anything other than him telling others to calm down. Well there was that thing about North Korea but I would say they asked for it. There are a bunch of gifts we get from God but the greatest of these is Love. Lets try to apply that to each other. Realize that some people on this island are more sensitive than others and some bite if provoked. If it was a dog you would quit poking the stick at it right? Have a great day to all - sure miss you!!

Jennifer,
You put the rope up?

Tomorrow can we still park in Opus lot or will J &D put those ugly orange cones in opus lot on Saturday morning? Opus has to pay for the use and maintenance on their lot and they do have a couple of pot holes forming.

Still hard to believe that someone from opus would throw cigarette butts, beer cans and take a dump on the city lot. Doesn't seem like the profile of their customers.

Yeah - O'pus customers don't shit...

I see j and d still hate the blog as they post away. What hypocrites. Jennifer did you know that If you don't log on to the blog you can't see it ......problem solved. See you tomorrow at the market....... Not!!!! At least untill these hypocrites are out of the picture. Why can't you two see you started the whole mess by not responding to a simple question. I guess if you stay in denial then everyone else is the problem

Wow, that nasty. If you didn't react with such anger, there would be no show and the trolls would get bored and go away. Stick and stones.
