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

Good Morning and Happy Friday


Jammin' On Jarboe is tomorrow night followed by a party with Senor Beans at Aspens

Great couple of meetings this week. Last night was the Civic Club and if you were not there you missed Jan Finnerty's most awesome Blueberry pie. I honest to God licked the pan. Well when you get this months Islander you may (or not) want to save it. It is slated to be the last hard copy. The end of an era. Combined with the cost of our printer and lack of volunteers to edit the decision was made to go Green and digital. The Club is still looking for online editors or the Islander may become a thing of the past. You've heard me say it for years folks, without you things do not happen. 
Glenn Dowell put the finishing touches on the Time Capsule marker and I helped him place it last night. Job well done my brother. It is an awesome marker. Only 40 more years til we get to open it. Someone save me a seat.

If you haven't heard the Bay Area Animal Shelter will hold a blow out fund raiser called Barktober Fest at the Paul Shelley pavilion in October. It is shaping up to be thbiggest thing we ever had on the Island. You won't want to miss this one. Before I forget, They are looking for a DJ to work the music so if you know of anyone drop me a line or get hold of Susan Adams.

Cith Council had a bigger crowd than usual. Always a sign of good times tocome. You probably guessed it by the comment section but there are some neighbors arguing with the CIty over a permit. This one is all over the board and even comes with charges of Official Retaliation. Something tells me this is going to be a long process. Local builder Blu was sitting quietly in the back. A lot of folks wondered why. Who knows. It got interesting when Lindy called out Joe for letting all his fishing buddies park all over Blue Point. Anywhere except his driveway. This one included pooping on the street and just as I thought it couldn't get any better Joe threw out the race card. BAM! All we need now is Quanel the 10th and some dancing bears and it'll be a real circus. Oooh maybe an alien. No not an illegal, I'm talking ET. Babs would be proud.

OH, It's National Zucchini Day!! Woot

Something is way wrong here with our permits. If they don't expire, and work can proceed indefinitely as long as a nail is pounded occasionally, then our City Blg. Inspector needs to have access to the property whenever for inspections.

A certain couple lost many friends by their actions of suing the City. I was so proud when I heard the bulk of their claims were THROWN OUT by the JUDGE. Wonder if they are going to retaliate against the judge. Time will tell...

Sad to see the cover of The Islander today. I sure hope someone steps up to take over for Pam and Helle. Can the Civic Club afford to pay someone if they no longer pay for the ghastly printer and paper?

George, why would Jack Fryday apologize to couple ? What's up ?

I was at CC and was watching the clock as the couple spoke. The City attorney told them the procedures they needed to follow. The couple kept babbling on. Finally Vern said it was past their 5 minutes of allotted time. They kept talking, introducing an attorney and then needed to hear the steps they need to take AGAIN from out attorney. For the love of GOD...

Word of the street is the Joe H. Blue Point issue will continue at the next CC on Aug. 19th. Get there for the entertainment if not to be an involved, informed resident. Those seats should be filled at every meeting. Take two hours a month and attend both of the meetings.

Are any of our new cameras mobile? Can they be placed at locations temporarily? If so, move them to Blue Point. Not sure who the lucky person will be who gets to view Joe's fishing buddies taking a crap. Sure hope they get arrested.

Sorry I missed the pie at the Civic Clb. Why not consider selling the recipes as a continued way to raise funds for our great PD.

Lance Armstrong was a "winner " until proven a liar and cheat .. Is Steve Kennemore doing any more dirt work for the Dietz builders ? Didn't think so , Steve is an honest man .

Our Capt Donaldson is a true leader and no BS allowed peace officer . He does the job . It's a shame our PD has to rely on pie sales to get needed equipment .

^^^ Agreed! Our Policemen do one hell of a job servicing our community! All of them work their asses off everyday to get the job done with limited resources! The days of old have long since passed with our Police. This is a totally new agency and its high time we start treating them like it! Pie sales to raise money for our Policeman! BAH! We can do better!
