I agree. I think if they were going to, they would have already done so. What a shame.

It's kinda like sailing, there are some of us who have been sailing since we were kids,in the Sea Scouts or the the family boat around Block Island and back every night(my dad was stationed at Newport in the 50's) and those instant sailors we see around the lake who run for the marina any time the wind gets up or they motor all the time. You now have instant bikers too, they whip out the plastic and before you know it they have the whole getup from a RoadKing to all the leather in the world. Most of the real bikers I know are patch holders in real clubs-Bandits,Angels, Outlaws, Boozefighters and a few others. They earned those patches the hard way by prospecting. You can't buy your colors in a real club. Pretty much all the rest are wannabees.

I wonder how much a boat slip cost per month at El Lago Marina per month? Can anyone tell me? Also, about how many boats were there on a monthly basis?

La Porte has the most stupid city government of all. With all the questions swirling around about this man, the city of La Porte still voted to provide him with $200,000.00 for a piece of property that was offered to the city the year before for $75,000.00. The city has agreed to lease a building from him at $5200.00 per month, when the space is not worth $600.00 per month, and pay to renovate it as well. What ever development this man is completing it is being done with La Porte funds, and if you check his property tax records, he has not made the majority of his 2008 payments, and he is begging Obama in a rambling blog entry to help his out with his finances. Was there an inquest or autopsy? Barbara's death is just too suspicious.

Race Horse is alive and well. I had lunch with he and his lovely wife just a week ago. Don't bury a man before his time.

I have had my disagreements over the years with Garson as my landlord and would not rush to defend him, but I know for fact, because I was there, that Barbara did commit suicide and that Garson received the marks seen on his face on TV in an altercation with his son that occurred a day and a half after Barbara died. Garson has many flaws and has done many things to bring bad Karma upon himself, but no one here has seen fit to even think of the childrens suffering or Barbara's for that matter. Barbara and Garson were many odd things as a couple but Barbara would not leave him and take the kids to live with her father. She would have killed herself first...hmmmm?

I have known Barbara since before their oldest son was born. She has suffered from post-partum and other forms of depression all throughout the years I have known her. Sometimes having serious bouts of paranoia and delusions.

I fully understand and share many of the frustrations those of you who were tenants at the marina have as I have been a tenant of Garsons for a long time now. However, none of you really knows what happened because you were not there. Stick to speculating about things you actually have first hand knowledge of.

I saw them every day, several times a day, sometimes helping Barbara care for the children, for years.

They both have made choices that have affected other in very negative ways. Garson often behaves aggressively and thoughtlessly and has done much to create ill-will towards himself, but who among you is so perfect that you can sit in a glass house and throw stones?

yes Garson has found some new people to sucker out of $$$. the city of LaPorte is now picking up where FEMA, the SBA, and OBama have failed!!! My GOD!!! they loaned him $150,ooo and he is now RICH!!! and the piece of property that he sold to the city for $150,000 was worth only $14,000 last year. The LAND BOOM is on!!! Hey everybody, get over to Laporte and buy some land real quick! and hurry, before Garson makes all the money for himself. and dont forget to hit up the city of LaPorte for the loan to buy it. and then you can sell it BACK TO THE CITY!!! and no, Harbor Master, the drama is getting started.

Garson is keeping a very low profile lately. The alamo building sits just as it was 3 months ago, cement bags in the middle of the floor, nothing done to it. The new facade that he put on is already pealing off. Doesn't he know he is blowing Laportes chance to waste $5500 a month in rent? He still hasn't paid his taxes on any of his properties, including the one Laporte is leasing from him.

People should really check into this man his background and illegal habits. He owns 2 properties in which he makes monthly income on one on Usener st and one in Tomball. After his so-called wife's suicide he moved to Beverly Hills Ca to mooch off of her parents which he is still doing. He gave his biological daughtr 2 vhickls that wr both still rgistred in his deceased wife's name. He continued to register the cars in his deceased wife's name knowinly and willingly breaking the law.He's broken the law knowingly and willingly to keep himself free of financial repsonsibility. A 3 car accident happened on July 2 , 2012 at the corner of Galveston Rd. and South Richey in which 3 people were critically hurt in a car that he continued to register in his dead wife's name illegally for over 4 years.This man is a drug addict and can break the law and get off free. Have heard he and his wife were on drugs and she was hallucinating and went and kly after her deathilled herself....have no reason not to believe this. He allows his 2 grown children to use drugs from a pervious wife and it's okay with him...what a great parent!Harris county property records indicate 2 addresses he owns in which both have seperate billing addresses he has conned Harris County by claiming homestead exemption when in fact he moved near dead wife's inlaws in Beverly Hills CA to mooch off of them shortly after her death.This man belongs in jail for false info to state and county agencies and for 3 people's lives that he wants to take no responsibility for that were severely hurt in a car that he didn't even have enough gutts to change into his own name to keep him from being held financily responsible and accountable for. Maybe if enough people come forward he will go to prison where he belongs for all his lies and scams.

Also both of the cars that he gave his daughter had trackers in them where he could know where the vehicles were at all times.........today this is called paraniod schizphrenia the man is a nutcase!He claims to be Jewish.......I believe the Jewish or any community would be ashamed of this man and his actions!
