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

Can anyone confirm the 2nd location was on Cedar? If so, what address?

Child porn is a huge industry. Think of those poor kids forced to do God knows what.

Guys and Gals,
The comments I see here tickle me. I have made comments a couple of times in the past, but I want to thank Alan for posting this information. This message board should be used for this purpose of informing the residents that live here in the city. I must say, I have lived here on the island for 16 years and I have never seen the leadership in this police department at this level. I don't know what has changed in the last year, but I'm impressed. You guys do it all, it's like we have a mini NYPD. I think these men and women should not go unrecognized for the job they do. God Bless them.

Guess we don't live in Mayberry anymore. I am so sorry that this has hit CLS but I guess it is everywhere. Sick people.

Marie, nothing's changed we have had child molesters here for decades. One lived on ivy one on birch and I'm not sure where the other one lived and there has probably been more. Sad but true. This island has the same mix of people that is in every neighborhood. Molesters thieves, drunks, perverts and good people. We just have to stay aware and weed the bad ones out

Anonymous said...

I agree anon, the big difference here is the good residents all watch out for each other and we take care of each other god bless and help CLS

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL

didn't they arrest somebody?

MARIE SWEET said...

I thought that all sex offenders/child molesters have to be registered with the local police dept.and that we are to be notified if they lived near children? But I guess "in a perfect world" and if they were convicted.I guess I have been here with blinders on.

Anonymous said...

Marie the one on ivy moved to New York just before he got busted but had been molesting for years from what I understand. One of the molesters on birch did not return to CLS after getting busted and sent to prison. The other one on birch had a sign in his yard stateing no children were allowed near his house. He is now gone as well. Even our santa at the farmers market who stayed in CLS was accused of molesting kids a year or so ago while on duty as santa were the rumors i heard. CLS is no different than the rest of the world except we watch out for each other as the previous poster stated. As far as the recent events go we should all wait untill the investigation is complete. Obama may change it but innocent untill proven guilty is still how we operate. If the investigation and possible trials show they are guilty then lock em up and throw away the key. Until then it appears everything is under controll thanks to good police work.

The man arrested is Joe Witt Stewart, 70. Out on bail.

Anyone know him?

Anonymous said...

i think if they were already "registered," they wouldn't be here in the first place. if they get convicted, they won't be here after...
so, technically, i guess they could be an unregistered, unarrested, baby-raping monster in our midst. looking at kiddie porn is different than being a rapist/child molester i guess somehow. my lord!

Anonymous said...

Is their a petition we cane sine to stop Obama from changing innocent until proven guilty? We should start one if theyre's not.
It's important

Holy crap anon, I havn't seen that many spelling and punctuation mistakes in two sentences since my daughter was in kindergarten.

Just for the record, the Santa at the Farmer's Market did NOT molest any kids while on duty as Santa. The charges against him had nothing to do with anything that happened in CLS. It was something that supposedly happened a few years before in another town. Not sure of all the details.

Good to know. Thanks

Wait!!!! Let's think about this.....have we lost our friggin minds ? This stuff does happen all over the world...... If you take the number of people on the island and compare to other large cities such as League City population of 80,000 or so....we are the Capital of the mentally ill..... Think about it, we can down play it all we want, but I'm going to kick back and have another crown & coke......... It appears that are police chief and fearless captain and officers are busier that a one legged man in a butt kicking contest...

They seem very busy and quite short staffed. Maybe in lieu of recent events, it's high time we properly staff and equip our police. We all know they are short staffed and are behind the curve with their equipment and technology. Let's give our men and women what they need. Look at what they've accomplished..... Now what what else they could accomplish with more people and better resources!

We have the best pd around but I have a feeling the Feds were the ones that handled this investigation

Adelia said...

There was a recent arrest in a town near here where there were I think High School girls that were doing some "street work". Someone had to be working with these girls. I am sure a bunch of follow up came from that. Also I have seen on the news recently a bunch of human traffic rings that have been broken up. These things only get to exist because there are customers available. I cant tell you how many "visitors" to other countries go there for the availability of young girls. Glad to see the Feds going after the source. Imagine getting your elderly parent on the internet and then boom visit from the Feds. Or teenage son - hello Fed visit. Scary. Thanks to Brent for reminding us to put security on our internet connections

What on earth makes you think that will happen? Quit listening to rightwing paranoid propaganda and chain emails. Just because it's on the internet doesn't make it true.

Kudos, to the CLS PD. We are lucky to have such a great team on the force. I for one feel safer & happier knowing they are watching over us all (even our pets)!

I could see why one would draw that conclusion based on the last 5 years in office, but the mighty O would never let that happen….. too many “innocent” voters would be locked up when elections roll around.

Obama's Kenyan uncle gets to stay in the U.S. along with all the other aliens they refuse to send back. those non-english-speakers will be flooding polling places while all the convicted pedophiles get their voting rights taken away. But if they're not checking the alien vote, why would they check the felon vote. Seems like if you let them vote in prison, you'd get a higher turn out! i still say let the kiddie pornsters rot! i'd rather trust my illegal maid to babysit than give one ounce of oxygen for those baby-rapers. i'm glad the feds are there to help our under-resourced officers. they all work hard to protect my grandkids and yours!

Look I'm not a huge Obama fan but seriously some of the stuff out there has been debunked and people who repeat it sound like paranoid loons. Some of that stuff, especially martial law, etc., was around under GW Bush and the name has just been changed.

O my lord! did they just arrest somebody else?! what is goin on???

Anonymous said...

Well, I'm having another Crown and Coke.... Has I sit here and ponder, a question come to mind. What is the difference between The idiots in CLS and the idiot in Bacliff? Nothing!!!!! Nobody in this city knows what's going on....., except for Vern and city administrator. I hear compliments about both of the across the island.

Well, did they arrest someone else?

Ok... I might have had one too many last night, but Yah.... We Beat out Bacliff !!!! Like I was saying per capita we are the number "1" shit hole of Texas. I haved lived here 16 years.... We can change mayors, city administrators, police chief and council, but we can't change the Kool-aid clan.....I think our police chief needs to have zero tolerance for idiots.......

Anonymous said...

The residents of our city need to realize the need we have for our police department and stop trying to tie one hand behind their backs. They aren't private security people, they're cops, and they do a damn good job of keeping us all safe. Support them, expand them, give them what they need. After all, they are the ones that have to wear a bulletproof vest to work everyday. Do any of you?

Hey #1 sh!t hole?.. check your so called facts per capita. Galveston county sex offenders list show NO registered sex offenders live in Clear Lake Shores.

As of 2012 CLS population : 1095 sex offenders 0

According to our research of Texas and other state lists there were 5,716 registered sex offenders living in Houston, Texas as of December 12, 2013. The ratio of number of residents in Houston to the number of sex offenders is 395 to 1. – City-data.com

According to our research of Texas and other state lists there were 47 registered sex offenders living in Bacliff, Texas as of December 12, 2013.
The ratio of number of residents in Bacliff to the number of sex offenders is 168 to 1 – City-Data.com

Please site your sources on how you gathered CLS is the #1 Sh!t hole. Or is this just your personal opinion?

Adelia said...

Let some calm prevail people and pray for this family to whoever you pray to. Remember anyone under 18 is considered a child and to an 18 year old a 16 year old doesn't look that young. I don't pretend to know all the facts and certainly don't endorse the behavior. Discuss "sexting" with your sons and daughters and the consequences of that action. What a horible thing to have on your record so young and what an ordeal for the family!

Adelia said...

We do win! We have a wonderful police force and neighbors that watch out for each other. I can take a walk on this island and if I felt like I was in danger stop and any house. For the most part they would know me and let me in.I could never say that about the Houston neighborhoods I lived in.

Anonymous said...

well now i've seen it in the online newspapers and on here they arrested joe stewart and james willits. adelia i'm not sure if they'd arrest an 18 year old adult for looking at pictures of a buxom 16 year old. i certainly don't think the feds would swoop in for something as simple as that. theres got to be more to the story we just wont know about til later.

My apologies anonymous, after you said “This stuff does happen all over the world......” and “we are the Capital of the mentally ill.” I must have assumed you were commenting on the topic at hand. Guess im just a douche bag and not on your intellectual level to understand.

Adelia said...

Ty- you are not on anons intellectual level and I am thinking that is a good thing.

MARIE SWEET said...

I do appreciate our police department with their diligence and all our city employees. Since I have moved here (as many of all of us) have felt secure and safe.More so than other places we have lived. I do hopE we ALL keep trying to keep it a welcoming and safe harbor.

sex offender doesn't automatically mean child molester

Possible that the 18 year old could have been taking pictures of himself and trying to sell them. Kids do stupid things sometimes,

Anonymous said...

where is it illegal for an 18 year to sell dirty pictures of themselves? surely that wont get u arrested by the feds. maybe the old guy was getting naked pics of the kid before he turned 18 but how would that get them both arrested?
