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

From the City;
The mosquito population is very high right now.  The City of Clear Lake Shores is asking residents to call Galveston County Mosquito Control at 281 534 2726 then press 3 and follow directions to request the county to schedule CLEAR LAKE SHORES for a mosquito spray.  This will supplement the current schedule the City is using for spraying.  The county allocates its resources based on the number of complaints received from a specific geographic area.

Also, residents should try to eliminate any standing water in buckets, barrels or other containers that are not covered to prevent mosquito larvae from hatching.  Mosquitoes are difficult to control in the best of conditions, however these occasional showers received over the past few weeks followed by warm conditions have created the perfect situation for increased mosquito infestations, especially when we are surrounded by water.  The City cannot spray on private property so we encourage the use of citronella or other mosquito repellents and avoiding the outdoors as much as possible between dusk and dawn.

From neighbor Mattie Copeland

Into a Belfast pub comes Paddy Murphy,
looking like he'd just been run over by a train.
His arm is in a sling, his nose is broken,
his face is cut and bruised and he's walking with a limp 
"What happened to you?" asks Sean, the bartender.
" Jamie O'Conner and me had a fight," says Paddy.
"That little shit, O'Conner," says Sean,
"He couldn't do that to you,
he must have had something in his hand."
"That he did," says Paddy, "a shovel is what he had,
and a terrible lickin' he gave me with it."
" Well," says Sean, "you should have defended yourself,
didn't you have something in your hand?" 
That I did," said Paddy.
"Mrs. O'Conner's breast, and a thing of 
beauty it was, but useless in a fight."
