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

What a refreshing council meeting last night. Things got done and people were courteous and professional. Nothing had to be repeatedly explained. No personal attacks. I look forward to council meetings from here on. Thanks for those on the council that chose to give thier time to make this city a better place to live.

It was such a relief to have Arline resign from the responsibilities she had. Those two agencies must have thought CLS sent a nut to represent them. Only wish she had resigned her council position too.

Has anyone seen the front page of the Galveston Daily News today? I love how Junkyard Jackie thinks this came about because of retaliation for the audit. Um, yeah, that's why he'd started being fined and given notices long before the audit ever took place. As usual, he takes absolutely no responsibilty for his actions or how they affect anyone around him. What a selfish person. Loved the drama-free meeting last night, too!!

I would like to thank Arlene for the time she has spent going to those agency meetings, reviewing what has to be not very exciting data, and reporting back to the council. It is very difficult to find anyone willing to give a lot of thier time with little or no reward in order to serve the city and I feel we should appreciate that. As for Jackie, during my construction I got a note from Jack and the city to clean up my lot. There was no retaliation just me having to follow the rules of the city.
