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

National Chili Day

Points if you knew it is on the fourth Thursday of February. 

My bad, I missed the City Council wrap up yesterday. Here ya go.
No action on the junk car situation on Hawthorne. It was discussed in two separate items and I’m still confused.
Councilwoman Fenwick is trying to get a spokesperson from CCISD to come and talk to us about the great big bond issue that is coming up.
History lesson. We lost a TON of trees after Hurricane Ike. Maybe a ton and a half. Saltwater and oil will do that. The City found a company to come out and offer a "tree sale" to help us replant. Jump to present day. Mayor Johnson (again) has asked George to look in to getting that outfit that back out. So, if you're planning on planting a tree or two you might want to wait a bit. Just sayin'. Here’s my silver Maple that I bought he was just a little guy when we bought him.

Lots of folks are pissed at the vandalism over at Grove park. Rightly so I might add. People, if your kids go there ask what they know. You will be surprised. 

No one showed from the Civic Club so when unscheduled Visitors was called I reminded everyone of the BBQ Cook Off this Saturday and That the new CLS stickers are in and will be available at the next Club meeting. 
A scheduled visitor asked that the City notify all residents that Clear Lake itself will be a No Wake zone in the early hours of June 23rd. That’s when they are going to do the speed runs for the go-fast boasts. It will be posted at all the boat ramps too. Should be fun. Loud, but fun. This is the third largest event of it’s kind in the Country. Remember when they had the Bud Nationals in the lake?
