He is a talented, creative, sensitive, caring and passionate human being, and if someone can assert this fact it is me, for I’ve traveled each and every one of his highway…and together we have loved, laughed and cried.” Marilyn, also a well-known Key resident who has been politically and socially active for years, hopes people will come out in droves to celebrate her husband’s life and 60 years of professional architectural accomplishments. “I always throw a party for him, so I decided this year I was going to document his success in architecture. I decided to write a book about his personal and professional life, and that’s what I’ve been doing for the past six months,” she said. “We’re very excited. I’ve been writing it with Willy next to me, and he’s been telling me anecdotes. It’s been fantastic because we have been living it all over again. Willy’s birthday also holds vljql=fdqw#phhwlqj#iru#wkh#Nh|#Biscayne couple, as this week marks another magical mile-stone: “I met Willy on August 23 in 1968 on his 30th birthday, and I was 22,” Marilyn said. “He said, ‘Today is my birthday, and we should have a drink.’ We did have a drink, and that was it. That was 50 years ago.” Willy’s birthday celebration will be hosted by Jamie Canavs of Florida International Univer-sity; Melissa McCaughan White, Executive Director of the Key Biscayne Community Foundation; and Ileana Fuentes, from the American Museum of the Cuban Diaspora.

Expect a full agenda: Not only has it been a while since Council members have been at the dais, Tuesday is their last chance until October to handle regular business because both September meetings are budget hearings. With that in mind, we’re devoting this “Three Things” to Tuesday’s meeting. Concepts for a new and improved library One of the most exciting prospects to come out of the Council’s last regular meeting was a plan to work with local architect Tom Weber a on a vision for a new Key Biscayne Library. Over the summer, Weber did a site anal-ysis and worked on a conceptual design that would accommodate uses like book racks, exhibitions, meetings, teen activi-wlhv/#=op#vfuhhqlqjv/#d#frlfwv/#hwf1#Fdpsdljqv#duh#welcome to submit photos and basic information from their events, and if and when we have material that represents all candidates equally, we will make hyhu|#h

ISLANDER NEWS • ISLANDERNEWS.COM THURSDAY, AUG. 23, 2018 PAGE 11 Question: Dear Dr. Kelly, I have breast surgery coming up and the doctor only gave me a three-day prescription of pain pills. I really wanted a week’s supply. Why are doctors getting so stingy with pain meds? Answer: We are in the middle of an opioid crisis in this country. It seems like pain medicine is in the news every single day. Prince, Tom Petty, Heath Ledger and countless other non-celebrity Americans have tragically lost their lives to these drugs. And yet patients want more and more. Two weeks ago, I had a patient ask me for 30 Percocet after removal of a -inch mole. In vrph#fdvhv/#sdwlhqwv#duh#whuul=hg#of feeling even the slightest pain. In many other cases, patients just want to abuse these drugs, or are addicted. Doctors share responsibility for this problem as well. For many years, physicians were taught that we were inadequately treating patients’ pain and that we should be more liberal in our prescribing pattern of pain meds. Just last year, my wife had knee surgery and the orthopedic sur-geon prescribed 60 Percocet. My wife didn’t take a pill. When she mentioned to a friend from Key Biscayne that she hadn’t taken any, he asked if she wouldn’t mind giving them to him! That is the problem with these drugs, they are highly addictive. With regard to the three-day prescription you were given, your doctor is following the new laws in the State of Florida. In addition to only prescribing a three-day supply, physicians are also re-quired to check an online data-base before prescribing an opioid. This way, we can make sure the patient is not abusing these drugs and/or getting multiple pre-scriptions. The reality is that to manage acute pain after surgery, a three-day supply is more than adequate. Less than one patient in a hundred in my practice needs more than that. After three days, the vast majority of patients are =qh#zlwk#Dgylo/#Dohyh#ru#W|ohqro1# Don’t be mad at your doctor.

You know the feeling: The sun is shining, a breeze is blowing and you don’t have any reason to leave the island. What do you do with your perfect day on the Key? That’s the question The Islander News is asking, and this week, as Willy and Marilyn Borroto get ready to celebrate Willy’s 80th birthday and lifetime of archi-tectural and civic achievements at an event at the Museum of the Cuban Diaspora, they took time to describe their design for a perfect day. THINGS I LOVE TO DO The BorrotosWhat is their perfect day? “All our days are perfect on the Key. Everywhere we go – hanging out at the beach, gro-cery shopping, grabbing a bite to eat – we are surrounded by family and friends enjoying the same attractions on the island,” the Borrotos said.Start the Day After reading the morning news, they have breakfast together and Mar-ilyn heads out to her 3-mile walk on Crandon Boulevard – 1-and-a-half from Harbor Drive to the entrance of Cape Florida Park and 1-and-a-half ]€z9~)hello to early joggers and grat-ifying when the maids, rushing to their jobs, appreciate a morning greeting and respond with a smile.” Willy, on the other hand, loves to linger at the Oasis while sipping Cuban 5news with the regulars.

Willy goes to the boxing ring at Tropical Park three times a week hoping to hold his Parkinson’s disease at bay one punch at a time. “When he comes home, radiating with excitement and adren-aline after a good workout, he always has a smile on his face knowing he is boxing out Parkinson’s, and takes a well-deserved siesta,” Marilyn said. “We spend the rest of the evening at the beach watching the sunset while enjoying a "d{€Dinner and a movie at home closes the day when the Bor-rotos aren’t having company or dining with friends at their 8G)d€ The suggested donation is $10 and instruction is provided for beginners.
