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 Friday Clear Lake Shores!



The rumor mill may be in high gear but here’s what I know. The Farmers Market will open as usual. And I hear the peaches are excellent. I love me some peaches. Onward people.

Movie Night is ON! It’s at the pool and if we behave ourselves we might get to do it again. So it’s all on us. See you Saturday for Jaws!

DID YOU SAY PEACHES!!! I love that kind of rumor. I bought from that guy at the market for the last two years and they are the best I ever had. I bought one from the grocery and they just don't compare. See you there - hope he brings enough for both of us!

Does this mean that I am going to have to buy food from someone like Target, Opus and Skippers that actually pays sales tax and supports our infrastructure. OMG!!!

Too bad Chill is not paying into CLS tax revenue. This city may be able to get back on its feet after NS waist 100k into the investigation to no where...

Who knows what is happening with Chill?

What about the Sand Bar. Its progress sure has slowed down. Talk about tax revenue...

Just returned from vacation and we are missing our skinny, 10 year old, black and white cat. Pet sitter last saw her at our house on Oak Road on Wednesday, July 10th.

If anyone has her or has any information about her, please call Bill or Tanya Comee at 832-368-6191.

Thank you.

Bill

Bill someone reported a black and white cat they found. Unfortunately, she said she was going to turn it over to animal control and that was a few days ago.

Chill is old news, ain't gonna happen. Sandbar is in a battle with our lovely water district. Farmers market? Who really gives a crap. Does anyone know where the profit from that thing goes if there is any? Can someone explain how the market works business wise? The peaches are better at the kemah market usually

Back in town and notice those ugly orange cones and bright yellow rope is gone from the FM lot, but it still looks like crap. I am hoping the city cleans it up once and for all and that it quits being a nuicance for other businesses surrounding it. (I heard the FM people were even hollering at the hair salon people for smoking on THEIR OWN property.) FM market has been an aggrivation to Skippers, to Opus, to the hair salon.....businesses that create tax revenue for our City. The Farmers Market has run its course as far as I am concerned and I hope our new council can think of something creative to do with that property, even if its nothing more than paving it for parking for surrounding businesses that do generate income for us. Its an ugly eyesore.

Many larger cities will give concessions to new businesses coming into their area. Maybe the city will think about helping the Sandbar get back on its feet by assisting them with solving the water problem, even if it costs the City money.

I personally thought our building inspector rushed to judgement on the amount of damage after the Hurricane. Many of you know that building had been here 50 years ,taking on several feet of water on many occasions, dried out and back in business in a couple of days. Sandbar was just unlucky this time that the building inspector decided to make them FEMA compliant by assessing percentage of damage as high. Prior to Home Depot opening, the Sandbar, Skippers and speeding tickets were our major source of income so we should try to help the Sandbar.

Our missing cat showed up tonight. Apparently she was upset that we went on vacation without her. Thank you to the folks who called with tips about her whereabouts.

On another note - I enjoy having the Farmer's Market here and hope it stays around. I don't think it will interfere with Opus, Skippers, or the two new bars that will be opening up soon, especially now that there has been a change in management. Add a little a landscaping and we would have a nice greenspace to use for 6 and a half days a week.

Agreed on the Farmer's Market, Bill. With the management change I think you will see a lot more locals.
Roz, it does bring something to our community; atmosphere. It makes our town a desirable place to live and do business. It gives us a convenient opportunity to support small and local business. If you choose not to shop there then it's ok. Target is right across the street. As long as it isn't a burden on the city then I believe this community has shown that they feel it should go on. If somebody makes an offer or has an idea for the property, then so be it. We will all move along, but until then let's support it. Most of us also support the Sand Bar and the new bar across from Opus. I bet we can make the Farmer's Market property coexist with the other businesses in the community and all get along just fine.
Best of all we no longer have 'KookyLady' to contend with.

Which KookyLady are you talking about? The former Council woman? The former Mayor? Or the chick that was arrested at the FM?

I see your point... My mistake. I was referring to the Kooky FM chick that ran around here acting like a fool crying about how much she "gives" and suffers and sacrifices, etc. etc. etc.
Then apparently she is actually the crappy person that her emails and conversations proved that she is and not the sweet, giving, caring, benevolant horticulturist that she continuosly reminds us that she is. You shouldn't have to tell people that you're a good person kooky lady.
