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

It's a brand new Tuesday

Don’t waste it. Get out there and let the world know you’re awake!

If you haven’t had a chance to view the online vote of support for Chief Shelley it’s not too late. Go here
And last but not least a cute dog named Gem, who was featured here last week is still taking applications for new co-habitants. If you’re interested contact our very own Pet Liaison, The lovely and talented Lezlie Cates-Smith.

Neighbors in need here…This is why they are bad guys. There is a special place in hell for this trash.
Thieves steal AC units from BATP!
This morning we arrived at our Crisis Intervention Center to an oven because last night thieves stole the copper and insides of our two AC Units.  It is not only grueling hot for the staff and volunteers, but also for the men, women and children who come to us for legal advocacy, counseling, employment guidance, food assistance and intake into our Shelter program.  Today, we have 71 women and children in our Shelter - on-going proof that our services meet a growing need in our community.

I am sending this out to ask that you please forward it to everyone that you know.  It is our hope that someone who receives this can help us get two new AC units as soon as possible.  Perhaps a hero who owns a AC company can provide the units as a charitable contribution or will be able to donate critically needed funds to help get the units replaced.  We will also need to secure these new units. In these already difficult economic times when we are watching every penny to avoid cutting services, we simply need your help. 

Perhaps you or those you know will be able to help our organization that is here 24 hours every day to help our community.  I am trusting God to ensure that our need is known to those who can help.  If you want to send an immediate gift for this need, please go to our website to donate electronically or just click the Donate Now button below. 

Thank you,

There's bad -- then there's good.
