Labrador’s life started with a gl?fxow#xseulqjlqj#lq#Pldpl1#“As a teenager, I was pretty much homeless, and was also consumed at a very young age with alcohol-ism and drug issues,” he said. That started to change when he met wife Carolina, a Key Biscayne native. Fried recalls meeting Eric through their shared love of running, and learned how Eric and Carolina met at the beach and fell for each other. When Carolina asked her parents if Eric could come live with them, they said no – until she said the other option was her going to live with him. So, Eric found himself on the Key, living right next to the pastor’s house at the Key Biscayne Com-munity Church. To say it was a life-changing stroke of fate puts it mildly. Eric got to know Reverend Bud Schroeder, who has since retired from the church, and started to attend services.

Through that support and the Village government that support-ed me and my family throughout this journey of day-to-day living, I’ve been able to, one step at a time, be where I’m at today.” And where he is today is living a life devoted to family, church and his fellow man.

Murray passed away peacefully on July 3, 2018 at the age of 87. Audrey is survived by her 4 children, Stephen Huggins, Mark Huggins, Laura Watkins, and Heather Nunez. She loved her 11 grandchildren Justin and Brandon Huggins; Diana and Paul Huggins; Jacob, Sara, Hannah and Caleb Watkins; and Leah, Krista, and David Nunez. She was also a great-grandmother to Braden and Hailey Huggins. Audrey was born in London, England in 1930. After surviving the bombing of WWII, she moved to Jamaica in 1948 with her mother Elizabeth (Pat) and sister Iris. She became a ight attendant for British West Indian Airways and soon after married Percival Huggins. They had 2 sons Stephen and Mark, then moved to Trinidadand subsequently divorced.Remaining in Trinidad, she met and married her husband Don Murray and moved to the United States.In 1971 they made Key Biscayne their home with their daughters Laura and Heather. During those 44 years, she enjoyed living on Key Biscayne and was actively involved in the community. Audrey began her volunteer work at Mercy Hospital. She became a member of the Key Biscayne Community Church where she loved singing in the choir, greeting, serving as a deacon and in fellowship. During the latter years, she enjoyed the Key Biscayne Community Center where Audrey and Don were regular patrons at chair exercises, lunches and movies. Services to celebrate her life will be held on Saturday, August 18, at 4 p.m. at the Key Biscayne Community Church with reception to follow. All those who knew Audrey are kindlyinvited to attend.

They became good friends. “It evolved from there. For the last couple of years I’ve had between two and three groups a month come to the Yacht Club for a lunch,” Tellam said, noting he followed up with the VA and they were eventually able to include veterans from both out-patient and in-patient groups. Tellam relies on friends and fellow Yacht Club members to help fund the events. “Tim Stickney — Steve Tellam See ROTARY on page 5

My best guess is we’ve probably had the better part of 1,500 guys and women out.” Residents can donate to the cause through the Key Biscayne Community Foundation, and Tellam said Yacht Club members continue to be incredibly gener-ous: “I’m still reaching out to the same people, but nobody hollers too loud – no one runs and hides when they see me,” he joked. He said many club members even stop by the lunches to chat, which is fun for everyone. “We have a couple World War II vets, some Korean vets, a group of Vietnam Vets who went to high school together. It gives these guys an opportunity to sit at a table with people they know and people they don’t know, and either talk shop or talk about football and their old girlfriends. It’s always fun to move around the table and listen to the conver-sations behind the laughter.” Tellam and his fellow Yacht Club members also hold an dqqxdo#=vklqj#hyhqw1##Zh#wdnh#about 20 or 30 of them out for a gd|#ri#=vklqj/#dqg#eulqj#wkhp#back to the club for a little time to whoo#=vk#vwrulhv/$#kh#vdlg1##Lw#jhwv#a lot of people on the water who normally wouldn’t be able to do it.” The events make a world of gl

ISLANDER NEWS • ISLANDERNEWS.COM THURSDAY, AUG. 9, 2018 PAGE 7 Residents routinely see problems like potholes, defective sprinkler heads, cracks in the sidewalk, etc. when they’re out and about on the Key – and local leaders will consider giving them an easy way to report issues so that repairs can be made. Mayor Mayra Pena Lindsay sparked the discussion during the Village Council’s June 26 budget workshop. While reviewing the Public Works Department’s proposed budget, she noted she’s heard complaints from residents about irrigation systems running at full-force when it’s raining. After Building, Zoning and Plan-ning Director Sergio Ascunce said he would look into the concern, Council member Allison McCor-mick noted how valuable it would be for residents to have an easy way to report complaints like irrigation problems, improper weeding, etc. McCormick noted Key Biscayne’s active residents are frequently out in the community on bike or on foot, so they tend to see things that Village employees might not. Others agreed – “We talked about it several years ago. Let’s do it,” Vice Mayor Frank Caplan said – and Ascunce will report back at the Council’s September 11 and 25 budget hearings. Leading up to those hearings, The Islander News will report on individual departmental budgets for Fiscal Year 2019, which runs October 1-September 30, 2019. Public Works requested a $2.39 ploolrq#exgjhw/#qhduo|#>dw#ryhu#last year, when expenses came in 1 percent or $25,000 less. Ascunce, who will turn the keys over to newly-hired Public Works Director Jake Ozyman for the September talks, gave the Council an overview of the budget on the 26th. He said much of the increase is due to a higher salary for Ozyman. Prior to Ozyman’s hiring, Public Works was led by a superinten-dent and was a division under the auspices of BZP. While the hiring carries a higher salary, it will save the Village money in other areas, Ascunce said – for example, Ozyman is fhuwl=hg#wr#surylgh#vrph#ri#wkh#engineering services the Village needs, allowing a $13,500 reduc-tion to a professional services line. One question that did come up involves the department’s tree-trimming and landscaping hhfwv/#dv#yhqgruv#kdyh#been slow with invoicing; and Village Clerk Jennifer Medina noted the Council did just pass a new tree trimming agreement at a recent meeting and it includes a vshfl=f#surjudp#iru#wkh#zrun1 The Council will review the agreement for its September discussions, and Pena Lindsay said she wants Ozyman to focus on more accountability for land-scaping maintenance. The Mayor pointed to a concern voiced during public comment by longtime resident and Land-scape Committee member Ceci Sanchez, who suggested setting aside $70,000 to hire a full-time landscape manager: “They would be fully accountable for the supervision of our green land-scape investment,” Sanchez said, noting currently the investment is marred by missing and dead trees, rotting gazebo structures, incorrectly planted foliage, incor-rectly pruned greenery, etc. Ascunce also detailed the Public Works Department’s goals in terms of capital projects. It will help with improvements to in-frastructure in the Village Beach Park and Lake Park, maintenance and repairs at the Mashta Bridge dqg#pdlqwhqdqfh#wr#wud?f#flufohv1 The department also looks to purchase a utility vehicle to patrol the beach, he said; the project is included in the Village’s proposed Capital Improvements Plan budget.

We are getting close to the time when with plenty of enthusiasm the residents of the Village of Key Biscayne will elect some of our neighbors and friends to be members of our Village Council. I am fortunate that for 27 years since our incorporation in 1991 as a self-gov-erned municipality I have been able to observe the joy our residents have felt when a Village election approached. It has always been considered by our com-munity a step toward a bright future. I am a fervent admirer of our incorporation and our wisdom to adopt a Village Fkduwhu#wkdw#vshfl=hg#wkh#gluhfwlrq#rxu#local government would follow to satisfy the formidable expectations of all Key Biscayners.

What I’ve found is that most of our clients think of “aging in place” as a way to live inde-pendently, and if that’s what we want to do after we turn 80, let’s start preparing now!

What can I do about it? Answer: Looking in the mirror and seeing your parents? That can be really scary for most of us. Unfortunately, we don’t choose our parents, nor do we get to pick our genetic background. Those tiny, visible blood vessels are usually located on the cheeks and nose and are called telangi-ectasia.

That fear stems from a lack of information or understanding and that’s not surprising,” organizers say. “Democracy is complicated. The issues we all face are complicated. So it’s no wonder that many just don’t bother. Life is comfortable (enough) and life is busy and stressful.

It is a perfect day. What do you do with your perfect day on the Key? David Rolland, author of Key Biscayne-set novel The End of the Century and former Islander News Deliverer of the Month circa 1992, shares his favorites. THINGS I LOVE TO DO David RollandWhat is his perfect day? His perfect day has a balmy Key Biscayne breeze that keeps the mosquitoes away, lots of laughs, some inspiration and )"d€€ PERFECT DAY START THE DAY END OF DAY PASSING TIME y)^8belly with a good meal. “Grow ing up here there weren’t many vegan options. I’m grateful I can now get a tasty Thai curry at Origin or some gazpacho or fried artichoke at Kebo. Not sure if crossing over to Virginia Key is cheating for this exer-cise, but I’d also grab a drink yŒ€mSchool if it was a night they were open.” Rolland said a perfect day starts with a run on the sand – ideally, if his knees are agree-able, to the lighthouse: “Many of the Key Biscayne landmarks I describe in the 1999 setting of The End of the Century are long gone, but fortunately Key Biscayne’s beach has remained as pretty as ever.” Then he likes to explore the hidden charms of Crandon Park. “When that old TV show Lost was on the air, my brother liked to say the show’s myste-rious island was based on Key Biscayne. When it was revealed the island on Lost had an abandoned zoo, it seemed he might have been on to some-thing,” Rolland said. “Hard to believe lions and monkeys were once housed there. Now it’s taken over by peacocks and geese.
