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

Not today.

for those who need one. 

What will surely become known as the Great Flounder Pond Battle of '17 has taken a turn. For the better or for the worse is for you to decide. If you read these ramblings you pretty much know where I stand. To the noobs this is just the current iteration of a long running story. To fill or not to fill, that is the question. 
Let me introduce the contenders. Not all of them to be sure just the folks on the front lines. 
First, we have the neighbors and their sign;
They took their case to our elected officials who promptly dumped it in the lap of our new Mayor
And our first ever majority female City Council
And it just wouldn't be a party without the Feds. So these folks came along and promptly red tagged the operation
Which brings us to the other side of the story, who received GLO, (Texas General Land Office, the oldest State agency in Texas) permission to fill in this private property. Enter neighbor Joe. He left this card on my door.
just before he posted this sign at the job site.
I'm outta things to say for now so.....

Well neighbors, life wouldn't be "normal" in CLS without folks "stirring" the pot. Not sure where I stand regarding Flounder Pond as I appreciate both sides. Whatever happens will likely be decided by a court of law unless someone who made a mistake admits such (that will never happen in today's "blame everyone else" society) or someone broke the law, in which case, the good-for-nothing parasite lawyers will be the only winners. My two-cents worth.

Regarding the "children" argument. Mr. Huntington, I'm no fan of your sleazy tactics, so please be spare us the bullshit. We've heard it before.

I bet Merriman is not willing to tear down his new bulkhead and let his property be "reclaimed" by tidal waters.
I bet he's ok with the giant metal storage building that he built in West Kemah in spite of the fact that the neighbors in that residential area didn't want a giant metal storage facility built next to their homes.
Joe is a dipshit and should have donated the money he spent on preparing the property for sale, but Merrimans are a little bit short on compassion and concern unless it benefits them.

Hey Joe,

If it's all about "helping the kids" I will buy your house right now. Not the Flounder pounder mess you started, but your big house overlooking the channel. The money from that ought to help out a lot of kids. Put your $$ where your mouth is.....

Shame on you for putting up the signs of those kids. Using that image to sell your ideas.

Anon #1, are you insinuating that Joe is lying about donating the money? That’s quite a serious accusation to throw around without offering any evidence.
Anon #3, would it be at all reasonable for someone to walk up to you at church and suggest that if you are a good Christian you should sign over your house as a tithe instead of throwing a few bucks on the plate? That's a ridiculous argument.
As usual, nonsense prevails in this comments section.

To be a Christian, you must believe that a cosmic Jewish Zombie, who was his own father, can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree.

Anon #4 - I would not claim to be a "good Christian" but I will agree with you that nonsense prevails in this comments section.
