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

It's National Chocolate Caramel Day

"Milton Hershey actually began his career at a caramel company in the late 1800′s.   Mr. Hershey was at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition and became fascinated with the exhibit of the machinery to make German chocolate.  He then bought the equipment for his company.   Therefore,  the popular caramel, chocolate combination has been around for many many years"

Can someone clarify what happened at council last night ? I heard all the new entrance lights have to come down ?

What? The lights are beautiful compared to the old ones from 20 yrs. ago. Can't the light holding bars be raised if it is an height issue?

Perhaps there are a few too many...

The lights do not have to come down. Two of the lights do not meet the minimum height requirement set by the State of Texas of 14 feet. There was difference of opinion between council and the EDC as to the solution to the problem.

wasnt at CC to hear solutions to raise the lights but wouldnt a simple spacer at the base of the pole solve the issue? Bolt spacer to concrete base, bolt pole to spacer and add the additional wire needed.

This is not a popular concept here in CLS but how about the ones responsible for this error correct it? Architects or Engineers made the error, right?
