1836 - Mexican forces under General Santa Anna captured Thompson's Ferry. Where the heck is Thompson's Ferry? a tad north of Richmond Texas. One week later he would meet General Sam Houston at San Jacinto. The rest as they say….
Nice crowd at Candidates night last night. Councilman Burns is out of the Country on business and the new lady was a no show due to surgery. THe Mayor was there as were three of the noobs. Lots of pertinent questions were asked. One was "are you for or against the Town Center" All were for with Mr Berry and Mr Croft stating with a "a pay as you go" clause. One must assume that when they buy a car or a house they pay cash. When asked why they were running Ms. Bailey stated it was time for her to "get involved", Mr. Berry wants to fix the budget and Mr. Croft was inspired by an old guy in New Mexico. They were also asked what their first priority would be. The Mayor cited the steadily improving environment and wants to keep it on track. Jan's top priority is to dive in head first and get to know City Operations, Travis wants to establish a City Outreach to avoid unpleasantness like we had in the past and Anthony wants to work on the budget. Best. Question. Ever. Kevin foley asked a hands down yes or no, do you like the Muscovy Duck population. Travis is amused by them, Anthony, cleared his answer with Joe first, likes them and takes care of them, Jan didn't have an opinion and the Mayor likes them. With gravy. Right on Mr. Mayor!

Gorgeous Spring weekend on tap. Get out there and enjoy yourself.
The Latin phrase libra pondo was used in ancient Rome to indicate weight, which is why today the abbreviation for "pound" is "lb."
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
