Although Selsnick warned him the board was underfunded and overworked, she was able to send someone out about a year and a half ago to get information and vhh#li#wkh#foxe#=w#wkhlu#edvholqh#criteria. It did, and in 2017 board member Ana Perez was dispatched to do a fuller review. O’Brien was impressed by Perez’s warmth and receptiveness – and eagerness to help. “She did a phenomenal job of writing up a report for us,” O’Brien said, and ultimately the board took two unanimous votes to award the club historic designation. Earlier this year, O’Brien attended a ceremony at the Miracle Theatre in Coral Gables to receive plaques for both the outside and inside of the building. They are now on display at the club, and O’Brien is planning a community event at the Beach Club this fall to celebrate the honor. Lw!v#d#=wwlqj#wulexwh#iru#d#yhqxh# that for over six decades has hosted the weddings and birthdays and fundraisers and just about everything else for islanders of all walks of life. The club originated in January 1952, making it the oldest organi-}dwlrq#rq#wkh#lvodqg1#Dw#=uvw/#|rx#had to own an originally platted Mackle property to join; today, all Key Biscayne property owners can join, but the Mackle lot owners are still the only ones who can vote dqg#krog#r?fh1 O’Brien said the most famous member, by far, was President Richard Nixon. He has a photo of a gathering at the club that includes Nixon; Bebe Rebozo, the presi-dent’s friend and Key Biscayne businessman; islander Carl “Egg” Young; and two stewardesses from Eastern Airlines. While the Beach Club is no stranger to political history, it also has a link to a remarkable tale of crime and punishment. “The famous jewel thief Jack Murphy, known as ‘Murph the Surf,’ was a good friend of Egg’s,” O’Brien said. “He used to sit on the beach and make palm frond hats – his trick was that he’d climb the palm tree and then come down and make you a hat. They were like =yh#exfnv1#Kh#zdv#rqh#ri#wkh#elj#characters of the day.” But the simple $5 hats woven on a sunny shore belied Murphy’s darker life: On October 29, 1964, he was among a group of thieves that stole over 20 gems, including the famous Star of India sapphire, from New York City’s American Museum of Natural History. It was known as “the greatest jewel heist of the 20th Century,” and honed Murphy’s reputation as a glamou-urxv#=jxuh/#dv#lppruwdol}hg#lq#wkh#4<:8#=op#Pxusk#wkh#Vxui1 Murphy – whose nickname frphv#iurp#klv#sdvw#dv#d#vxu=qj#champ – was ultimately convicted of killing a woman and sentenced to life in prison. He turned to Christianity and was a model prisoner, and currently is involved in prison ministry work. Other famous faces spotted at the club include Miami Dolphins star Bob Griese, race car driver Emerson Fittipaldi and actor Andy Garcia. And, speaking of visitors, the Beach Club greeted two sent by Mother Nature as well: Andrew and Betsy, major hurricanes that it weathered and survived. Along with its ties to famous faces, the Beach Club boasts some interesting historic structures. “We have the oldest water fountain on Key Biscayne. It was put in on 1958; it’s porcelain, and it’s an outdoors water fountain,” O’Brien said; when asked if it still works, he replied, “Yes ma’am. I get water out of it every day. It’s so cold.” Li#wkhuh!v#frog#zdwhu#>rzlqj/# there’s also Cold War history. 1962, O’Brien said, the U.S. Navy arrived and constructed a block building. It was a simple structure, but one with a chilling purpose: they needed to run a cable to Fowey Rocks Light in order to put in radar at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis. “They took it out in ’69; there was a little lead nametag on it that said ‘Cable for Fowey Rock,’” O’Brien recalled. The club also has a huge anchor salvaged from San Salvador. The Emmons family brought it to their Harbor Drive home via a complex undertaking that required both a barge and a tractor on loan from the Key Biscayne Hotel. For 50 or 60 years, the anchor adorned the front lawn of the Emmons home before Mr. Emmons gave it to his granddaughter, a college student. Since she couldn’t exactly take it to her dorm room or cam-pus apartment, it ended up at son Brad Emmons’ home in Weston. Eventually, Brad contacted Bob Bristol from the Key Biscayne Historical & Heritage Society about bringing the anchor back to the Nh|/#dqg#Eulvwro!v#=uvw#wkrxjkw#was to call O’Brien, who happily accepted the historic salvage piece for the Beach Club. “Now, when you walk in, immediately on your left is this big old anchor that came out of San Salvador in the 1950s,” he said. “It probably dates back to the 1880s, r<#d#fdujr#vkls1$ O’Brien has surrounded it with bricks that residents can buy to memorialize family and friends, and the monument has become a popular photo opportunity, with people who hold weddings at the club even using it as a theme on their invitations – think of a cou-ple anchoring their love for each other by walking down the aisle. It is celebrating those big moments in the lives of regular folks that, no matter how many U.S. Presidents or famous jewel thieves have passed through its doors, the Beach Club is all about.

THE ISLANDER NEWS • ISLANDERNEWS.COM THURSDAY, JULY 5, 2018 With an employment agreement now in place, incoming Village Manager Andrea Agha will be onboard in Key Biscayne in mid-August. Current Manager John Gilbert retires in September, so the timing will allow Agha to shadow him for a while before his departure. Agha, currently Assistant Town Manager in Miami Lakes, was named the Key’s next Manager June 4.

THE ISLANDER NEWS • ISLANDERNEWS.COM THURSDAY, JULY 5, 2018 As the summer heats up, here’s what we’re hoping to see on the Island Para-dise this week: People starting to take Hurricane Season seriously: Hurricane Season is just over a month old, and we know what you’re thinking: Things don’t get rolling for weeks, maybe months. But that’s exactly why right now is the best time to prepare, especially since forecasters say it could once again be a busy season. Here’s some advice from the experts: Plan where you will stay and what supplies you will take if you evacuate. Create a hurricane kit with non-perishable food and gulqnv/#phglfdwlrqv/#d#=uvw#aid kit, etc. Let kids add favorite toys and books and consider the needs of pets as well. If you will need help to evacuate due to a medical condition or another reason, arrange for that now. Discuss your plans with everyone in the household and practice your plan until everyone is on the same page. If you have a gen-erator, test it; and make sure trees and shrubs are properly pruned. Tell family or friends where you’ll go in an emergency. Send contact info and copies of import-ant papers to family in another city. Review insur-ance policies and inventory personal property and take photos for future insurance claims. A safe summer vacation:With school out, you’re noticing more kids out and about. It’s up to all of us to keep them safe. In May, a girl riding her bike was struck by a mo-torcycle even though she was doing everything right by riding in the crosswalk dqg#xvlqj#wkh#>dvklqj#pedestrian lights. Just a couple weeks ago, two NBC 6 journalists were struck while cycling on the Key – their injuries were not serious, but the incident highlights a dangerous situation. We hope driv-ers will slow down, pay dwwhqwlrq#dqg#jhw#r<#wkhlu# phone. And, kids, don’t forget your bike helmets, pay attention to your surroundings, use those sidewalks and crosswalks, and, as painful as it may be, listen to your parents! A good start for the Key’s next Manager: The Council recently agreed to terms with Andrea Agha to start as incoming Village Manager next month. We look forward to a smooth tran-sition. Our advice to Agha? Get to know – really know – Key Biscayne and its residents. This truly is a place like no other, and the secret to success is listen-ing to those who know it best. We look forward to working with Ms. Agha, and hope she has the same dedication to the job and love for the community as our current Manager.

And, once again, our engaged residents and diligent Council members didn’t disappoint, using the session as not only a chance to review a proposed budget, but to brain-vwrup#qhz#vhuylfhv/#h?flhqflhv/#srolflhv#dqg#pruh1#Here are a few we found the most interesting. Will there be a tax increase?Only in Key Biscayne does a resident step to the podium to beg for higher property taxes and get a hearty round of applause. That was the case last week when former Council member Alan Fein said now is the time to raise taxes to support an infrastructure bond. He made a compelling case: long-term interest rates will rise, and the Key faces projects like buried utilities, beach restoration and, crucially, hardening for sea level rise. Fein is right when he says all the capital projects and excellent services in the world are worthless if residents are >rrghg#rxw#ri#wkhlu#krphv1 Will the Council respond by raising the rate above 3.0 mills? Fein said a lot can be done with an increase that would add just $450 to the tax bill for the owner of a $1 million home. No one likes new taxes, but the arguments are hard to deny, and we hope the discus-sion continues in the fall. Vkrxog#wkh#Yloodjh#kluh#qhz#srolfh#r?fhuv#iru# local schools?

I get a call of a person that works on the Key to tell me all the entrances to Key Biscayne are blocked due to “someone with a gun.” I could not believe it.

Nothing in the news (not even at night) and two little paragraphs in The Miami Herald just mentioning someone was trying to commit sui-cide. Did we really need all that commotion? Wouldn’t it have been a better choice to send our awesome teams of trained personnel (SWAT) to take care of one single person in distress, in-stead of distressing so many people? Tilky Lopez Blanco Behavior by some cyclists will cause tragedy More cyclists driving in the middle of the road and empty bike lane on the right side of the road. Every morning hordes of cyclists cross Rickenbacker Causeway, in front of cars driving 45 miles an hour, on an apparent suicide mission, to ride on the left side of the road and re-enter Key Biscayne. Never mind that they have a bike path and appropriate exit on the right side of the road. Cyclists would much rather risk everyone’s lives, theirs and the drivers’, to exit on the left side. Share the road! Cars do not drive in the bike lane, cyclists should use the assigned bike lanes and cyclist exits.

THE ISLANDER NEWS • ISLANDERNEWS.COM As is often the case with law enforcement incidents, the har-rowing scene playing out beneath the shadow of the William Powell Bridge last Friday was much more nuanced and complex than many people realized. And that, Police Chief Charles Press said, is why he has no doubt that the decision to close the fdxvhzd|#wr#lqfrplqj#wud?f#iru#hours – disruptive thought it was – was the right call. “I support every move and every decision – I would not change anything we did,” Press said. “At the end of the day, everyone walked away. Lives were saved. “Lives were also disrupted, and that’s the unfortunate side to an occurrence like this. But what disturbed me were some of the comments that insinuated a life is not worth inconvenience. How sad a commentary is it that we look at a human life like that? I will never accept that mentality, and if this happens a hundred times I would support the decisions that were made that day. “If it was our son or daughter under that bridge, we would have wanted the same consideration.” The causeway was closed all morning and into the early after-noon Friday while Miami Police responded to a man with a gun under the bridge threatening to harm himself. A SWAT team and hostage negotiators were on scene, and vehicles traveling onto the island were turned away. The situation was ultimately resolved with the man being taken into custody and no injuries, and the causeway reopened in the hduo|#diwhuqrrq1#Wud?f#uhwxuqhg#wr#normal in about an hour. Press said many considerations went into keeping the road closed. “There are a couple things that were unique,” he said. “It involved a person who was acting erratically dqg#wkhq#=uhg#d#vkrw#dw#srolfh#r?fhuv#dv#wkh|#dssurdfkhg##vr#we had an active gunman who was not afraid to shoot.” Then, Press said, police were able to identify the individual and speak with his family. “We were able to gain access to his universe and his world, and it’s very dis-turbing. We had access to infor-mation that helped us formulate a reason to have a SWAT team keep negotiating rather than moving in and creating a shootout, which could have cost innocent lives.” So, Press said, the key reason wud?f#zdv#kdowhg#zdv#wkdw#prwru ists, pedestrians, cyclists, boaters dqg#dlu#wud?f#frxog#kdyh#ehhq#dw#risk if they were in the vicinity. Police also closed the air space above the causeway and did not allow boats to pass. Ixuwkhupruh/#kh#vdlg/#wud?f# would likely have sparked the individual to take action. “If he’d seen one car, one cyclist, one pe-destrian, anything of that nature, he was going to start shooting. He made that very clear,” Press said. Beyond that, he noted, even doorzlqj#rxwjrlqj#wud?f#zdv#making it harder for negotiators to communicate with the man. “The incoming cars were directly on top of us, and they could not hear,” he said. “They went so far as to lower a hostage phone to him, but in his vwdwh#ri#plqg#lw#zdv#yhu|#gl?fxow#to understand him and hear him.” Press said the command force xqghuvwrrg#krz#gl?fxow#wkh#closure would be for Key Biscayne, but there were no other options: “We had to take everything into h

Q: How did you get your start in the culinary industry? A: Catalina says she and Sebastian were students at Universidad de los Andes in Chile when they met, and he has always had a love for the kitchen and cooking. Once they graduated, he worked as a commod-ities trader for a Swiss company and was eventually transferred to Switzerland. There, Sebastian says, he learned to love the healthier side of eating, very low to no sugar and heavy vegetables. “While abroad, my job took me traveling three weeks out of the month, so for fami-ly reasons, I resigned and decided to move to Key Biscayne, an area we vacationed at frequently.” Catalina chimed in; “We always talked about living here. When we arrived, the idea to do something we loved took over and after forming a group of investors we settled on the idea to open Secreto Gourmet as a healthy alternative for the island.” Q: What is your “secret to success?” A: We are novices at running a restaurant but think the key for us will be to be totally dedicated and involved in all details of the restaurant. We spent three years See SECRETO, continued on page19 Restaurant Catalina Marin and Sebastian Lopez, the husband and wife team behind Secreto Gourmet.

We treat our food as it if comes from our own kitchen, using only the best of natural ingredients, cooked daily. We also priced our items to be in line with everything else being served in the island. Q: What’s your proudest moment in your career? A: When we were married and then the birth of each of our kids. Sebastian says he is also proud of Secreto Gourmet’s ongoing QDQFLDOVXSSRUWWR)XQGDFLRQ0LUDGDV&RPSDUWLGDVDQRQSURWorganization working to improve quality of life for adolescents with intellectual disabilities through entertainment and recreation activities. He invites everyone to learn more about them at https://www.micompartidas.com. Q: Any funny or embarrassing stories you can share? A: Sebastian laughed and showed his right hand wrapped in a wet towel; he had burnt his hand in the kitchen earlier in the day! Catalina chimed in, relating stories IURP)ULGD\-XQHZKHQZLWKaccess to the Key was cut off from Miami due to a police incident. Very few businesses were open. Since they live close by, Sebastian started cooking a limited menu and they served breakfast to many cus-tomers who were looking around for places that were opened. They sold out of almost everything! At RQHSRLQWDORFDOSROLFHRIFHUstopped by to look for a sandwich, and when he mentioned that many cops were tired from the long shift, Sebastian sent him 10 additional sandwiches. Catalina also recalled that she went to check on her children, who were attending a local FDPSWKDWKDGSOXVNLGVZLWKlittle to eat. She came back, made a large lasagna and took it back so the kids could eat a warm lunch. Q: What do you love most about your career? A: “The interaction with customers,” Sebastian said. “I love every single interaction, to cook the meal, serve it, and wait on the customers.” Catalina said they wanted to create a nice homey environment. She UHFDOOHGZKHQ)DWKHU-&6W$JQHV3DVWRU)DWKHU-XDQ&DUORVFDPHWRbless Secreto before they opened, he suggested to make Secreto a place where they created peace of mind, something Catalina said she and Sebastian are totally committed to. Q: If you had to choose one meal, what would it be? A: Without hesitation, Sebastian said Huevos Catalina (Catalina’s Eggs), which is Secreto’s most pop-ular breakfast entree. It is a healthy take on eggs benedict with poached HJJDYRFDGRDZKROHZKHDWPXIQand homemade hollandaise sauce. Catalina would opt for Secreto’s Kelp Noodles. Q: What is your favorite junk food or comfort food? A: Sebastian said pasta, any kind, and lasagna with meat sauce. Catalina said she loves pizza with mozzarella and feta cheese and vegetables. She makes one with FDXOLRZHUGRXJKWKDWLVDGHOLFLRXValternative. Her kids love anything Italian. Q: Is there any food you absolutely don’t like? A: Catalina said she is not too adventurous with meats, like sau-sages and the like. Sebastian said that since he traveled so much, he has eaten just about everything. Q: What do you like to do in your free time? A: Both Catalina and Sebastian said simultaneously that they love to play tennis but love all outdoor sports and the beach and spending time with the kids. While not doing much now during her pregnancy, Catalina loves to jog. Q: What’s your favorite part about working in Key Biscayne? A: Sebastian said that where he lives, works and sends his kids to school are all within 500 meters, together with the high quality of life. Catalina said they rarely leave the island. She loves that her daily transportation is on her golf cart! Q: What would people be surprised to know about you? A Catalina said people are surSULVHGWKDWWKLVLVWKHLUUVWUHVWDX rant. She goes on to say that since the process to open took so long, over one year, they had time to plan every detail, wanting to do things right. She wanted the restaurant to look and feel like it was her house. Q: What’s your advice for someone just starting in your profession? A: Sebastian laughs, “Do not open a restaurant!” However, seriously, he continued, be prepared and count on the fact just about everything will take longer so plan well, pay close attention to all details. He also suggested you surround yourself with people who will truly support you. THURSDAY, JULY 5, 2018 q5q^]..p q^Ip‹.q^qQpSq^Epimq^qpq^pq,p‹.qd JUSTO REY/ Islander News

It is, in short, a perfect day. What do you do with your perfect day on the Key? That’s the question The Islander News is asking local residents in our new Things I Love to Do column. This week, we asked Key Biscayne Beach Club General Manager Mike O’Brien. THINGS I LOVE TO DO Mike O’BrienWhat is his perfect day? “That’s easy,” O’Brien said. “My favorite thing I like to do is go to work!” It might not sound like the answer a lot of people would give, but for O’Brien, it’s the honest trust. “I get paid to go to the beach,” he said. “I like the people. In all seriousness, it’s what I love to do the most. I even come in on my days 5d{O’Brien usually starts his )#57-Eleven, which brings back plenty of good memories. “I watched them build the place in 1958,” he notes. From ^~5Beach Club, where he oversees day-to-day operations, maintenance, special events, etc. When he’s not at the Beach Club, O’Brien likes to visit with the many friends he’s made over the years. He often stops in at CVS, the Key Biscayne Hardware store and Winn-Dixie to chat, but then it’s back to work. Simply put, “It’s what I do and what I like,” he said. “This is my island, and I love my island.”Do you have a recipe for a perfect day on the Key, or would you like to suggest a neighbor to share the things they love to do?
