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

The Ides of March

Explorer update. This is hot off the wire from the PR guy at KSC.

To: Batchelor, Allan
Subject: EXTERNAL: RE: Explorer

Mr. Batchelor:

Below is the latest status on an arrival date for the shuttle mock-up in the Clear Lake area. My source for the information was Paul Spana, Exhibits manager at Space Center Houston

Linda Matthews-Schmidt

Communications and Outreach Branch

NASA Johnson Space Center


The shuttle mock-up will come through Clear Lake by barge and will then be transferred down NASA Road 1 into Space Center Houston's parking lot. The mock-up will be installed on the east side of the visitors' center.

Space Center Houston (SCH) is currently working on the logistics to bring the shuttle mock-up to Houston from Florida. SCH is exploring different options for moving the mock-up through Clear Lake.

Until some key details regarding the move have been resolved, the move is temporarily on hold. Depending on which plan is used, the move may not happen for several more months.

Meetings are ongoing with several organizations to discuss the best logistics. Meanwhile, the site is being prepared for the arrival, no earlier than July 2012.


From the Civic Club…

I know this will make all of you cry a little and for different reasons but I am going to turn off the anon button for a few days. I won’t have access to a keyboard and I don’t want some doped up anon posting nekkid pictures of themselves and their ex while explaining to you why you need to vote for X. It will be turned back on Sunday. Thanks for playing.
