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

National Radio Day

In the late 19th century, it became clear that wireless communication was possible.
There were several inventors that had a part in the invention of the radio in the late 1800′s and not just one person can be credited with it’s beginning. To make the radio a reality, it required a number of different inventions and discoveries including both transmission and reception methods as well as technology. It was in the 1920′s when the first broadcast stations began airing programs.  These first programs were those of news and world events.

It was confirmed at the meeting. The Islander is going green. Plans are underway to decide how the e version will get to your inbox. Something to chew on, if you’re not a member the Civic Club doesn’t have your email address. That means no Islander for you.

The first meeting of the Landscape Beautification Advisory Committee, know forever more on this site as LBAC will have their first meeting at Curtis and Janets at Forest & Pine. Yeah, That yard. See you at the pool. 8/27 @ 7:00

Council voted down funding the Yachtygras committee. After discussing the $900 the city invested last year I think the no vote came from the fact that they were not going to have their award and kickoff meetings at any of our local business’. That to me is a valid deal breaker. To you punkin’ heads out their screaming what a fiasco it was last year you are talking out your ass. A few neighbors were turned away from Deep Hole Park. That was very unfortunate but it was quickly addressed and handled. And for the Love of God stop using the word elitist when describing the judges. They are just regular folks who volunteered their time. They got here on golf carts like the rest of us. Some of your neighbors busted their collective asses to throw you a great evening out. If you didn’t get off your dead ass and show up then it’s on you. Still no fiasco. When it was all said and done we raised a few dollars for the Scouts. Is that a catastrophe in your world? Quit whinning It ain’t manly.

Got this on your calendar yet? It is shaping up to be one heckofa party.

And before I forget, they are looking for a couple of the small plastic paddle pools so if you are done with yours please consider giving it to the event. They have something cool planned for te pooches I'm sure.

The Harvest Moon Regatta takes off October 9th. Some of your neighbors are racing so don’t forget to wish them luck. Hear me Walter?

The Blue Angels are making a showing at this years Wings Over Houston. It’s on the calendar for November 1-2

Here’s a link to The Bay Area News and some great shots of some of our girls volleyball team at Falls kicking some booty.

The Seabrook City Council recently passed ordinance no. 2012-22, and that ordinance removes “cairina moschata” (commonly known as Muscovy ducks) from protected status within the City of Seabrook. Citizens who are experiencing problems related to the occupation of Muscovy ducks can now take action to have the ducks removed. Removal of the ducks has to comply with the U.S. Department of Interior Fish and Wildlife Services in regard to disposal or relocation of Muscovy ducks.

Citizens who wish to remove Muscovy ducks from their property will do so by providing their own trapping system (baited walk-in traps). Trapped birds will be collected by the city of Seabrook Animal Control services. Citizens shall not trap and relocate the birds themselves, as relocating violates the provisions set forth under the Department of Fish and Wildlife Services. Ducks cannot be removed with the use of firearms. Discharging a firearm is prohibited within the Seabrook city limits.

Steps can be taken to prevent the occupation of Muscovy ducks. The most common reason for their presence is an open food source. Feeding the ducks encourages their habitation and breeding.

If a Muscovy duck is trapped, please contact the city of Seabrook Animal Control at 281-474-2590 to arrange for proper collection of the bird.

Anybody up for a duck cook off this fall?

I was among those turned away from the park last year so I am happy CC voted against YG. The city, EDC and Civic Club will save $$$.

Heard one of the YG folks told CC to consider the fact that the person who started YG was moving here. Why would that be something to consider? Sounds elite to me.

A CLS tradition, Mancakes, is a more important event for the Club house that weekend.

Agreed! Cannot wait for the Mancakes!!!

Hmmm... Will Seabrook relocate their ducks to CLS?

Some people are opportunists looking for a way to get paid with taxpayer money. Glad CC sees thru this SCAM. Liars, Liars.

Wondering how many Islander advertisers will drop their ads when only Civic Club members receive the newsletter?

The cigar smoking YG leader walked out on CC when they ALL voted YG down. It was a great moment. Thank you Council. And to think they wanted to get approval of Council to "donate to the Sea Scouts" NOT.
