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

Understanding Engineers #5
The graduate with a science degree asks, "Why does it work?" The graduate with an engineering degree asks, "How does it work?" The graduate with an accounting degree asks, "How much will it cost?" The graduate with an arts degree asks, "Do you want fries with that?"

Allen Cruthirds, I didn't want you to miss my questions:

Allen Cruthirds got a question about Roselyn/Mike Bass's statement:

As part of EDC did you collect a Realtor's Fee?

I don't see you as the listing Agent on any of these sales/purchases? Matter of fact, I saw on one purchase that the EDC came to them.

So who approved for you to use your position on EDC to secure you a Realtor's Fee and was that split with other Board Members?

It is definitely not in the EDC Minutes. I will understand the legal implications you face and why it would be better to take the 5th.

Hard to comprehend that anyone would be awake and posting at 1:22 AM plotting how to "take down" another fine, decent person. Evil.

Bryan said...

Hold the course, Allen. While I'm sure you would agree that this would be a fun and easy debate to have, until we know who we are debating with it is pointless. Unless the ANONs and ALIASes find some courage to reveal themselves so we can really debate this then their drivel will continue to come across as sure signs of desperation, like a dog backed into a corner.

A thought - isn't posting under ANON or an ALIS just another form of taking the 5th? Think about it.

You may be a little mixed up in your view of "evil" > evil is the person who commits a crime and/or violates a trust not the prosecuting or exposing of the "evil".

Roselyn, you exposed Allen Cruthirds as having made a profit from the purchase of land for CLS while being a board member of EDC, a non-profit corporation. This means those associated with the corporation cannot profit from the business it does.

Are you concerned that you are "Evil"? I see you caring more for CLS and it's Citizens. Maybe you and Tami aren't so far apart now that you are part of the solution rather than the coverup. If more people like you come forward then we can clean up CLS.

DaveC. said...

You can't get Paul or Allen, so your going after Allan! You are the evil. If all you want to do is destroy and not support or build up. Your losing and as you lose more you become more vicious. PLEASE leave the island this is not what we are about here!

Dear Mr. Evil JFishing:

Don't compare me to Tami. She lost the respect of an entire community from listening to the likes of a handful of hateful people like you. I wrote her a letter back in June 2011 warning her but she didn't listen.

I hope you can prop her up once she is no longer in office and realizes she accomplished absolutely nothing and that your group is finished with her.

Maybe you forget that your wife asked my husband to run for council twenty years ago, so I know how this game is played. You guys are good at the game but you went over the line this time, smearing the good name of people who have done nothing but good for this city.

And I am hoping that in the very near future there is a long line of lawsuits filed by Allan, Vern and Paul. You didn't learn your lesson from the Scott trial, so you can act as intelligent as you want on this blog but you are still a stupid shit anyway you slice it.

Anonymous said...

I find it surprising that you defend the acts and those who committed them rather then those who exposed the acts these public servants chose to commit.

Paul, Vern, Karen, Kenney, Allan, Allen, nor any others who have committed these acts are going to sue. For once they sue, they are exposed to Discovery. Then all the questions that have been asked and not answer, all the documents not presented, all the banking accounts, their IRS returns, plus become part of the suit through Discovery. Your threat is without foundation or merit.

The Voters have a choose to end the free lunch at the Citizens expense or to join you in condoning their actions.

You are right that the only investigation ever needed was a Forenisic Audit and most, if not all, of the wrong doing would have been exposed. The City would have gotten a better result then going after individuals. The individuals would have been exposed as the Audit uncovered all of the illegal transactions.

Roselyn said...

and I find it surprising that you and your NS group would be in charge of "uncovering crimes" when you have restraining orders against you, 68 counts of harrassment in a pending lawsuit. Oh yes, and there is previous arrests for violating city ordinances and contempt of court, and not pay taxes.

Yes, I am sure, that from experience, your group understands well about the discovery process.

Bev E said...

Isn't it sad that these people are in such a dark place and so eaten up with this issue.

Where is their Joy in the World, where is their Happinnes?

It shows signs of extreme paranoia and I would be very uncomfortable if I lived next door to them.

Michelle said...

JFishing, you are certainly a bitter person. Don't you know that the problem here is not that anyone got a "free lunch," as you say, but that most of us wouldn't get so upset (that we'd divide a community over it) about giving a free lunch to someone who has given up so much for the betterment of CLS? What a shallow, self-righteous, and selfish person you are. All this $$$ you guys keep spending of ours (that we don't have) on investigations without our approval is NOT ANY different than what you keep accusing everyone else of doing. What a hypocrite. Yet the obvious difference is that those you accuse actually care about the island and do more good things for it in one day than you've seemed to do in your entire time living here.

Adelia said...

I have been listening to NS accusations about quite a few people for some time now. It seems they blow out a lot of incriminating statements but when it comes down to it can't prove anything EVEN with spending an embarrasing amount of public funds for their investigation. I have to take everything they say with a grain of salt.
