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

Ready to get off your butt and pay back to the coolest little city on the bay? If the answer is yes then you need to know that this Friday, the 28th, is the last day to register. I realize there are fewer more noble causes than public office but an old W.C. Fields quote comes back to me. Allow me to paraphrase, "I wouldn't want to represent anyone who would vote for me". All kidding aside it truly is what makes this place so unique. It's our friends and neighbors who keep us moving forward. Some faster than others but they keep it moving. And lest we forget not always in the direction we want, but that's the wonder of a democracy. Keep it in mind.

Early Voting starts April 28th and in that spirit the Civic Club has changed it's Candidates Night. We bumped it up to April 24th just for you. Now you get a chance to grill your favorite, or otherwise, candidate prior to early voting. Thanks Christy for pointing out our faux pax.

Speaking of voting it's May 10th if you didn't already have that on your calendar.
