That’s the message from the Village Council, which joined an interna-tional trend last week by approving an ordinance to cut down on the use of single-use plastic straws on the Key. The August 28 vote stopped short of stating individual residents can’t purchase and use plastic straws, but does apply to special event permittees, commercial establish-ments and activities at Village buildings, struc-tures, parks, beaches, roads/streets, rights-of-way, or other facilities.

The facility would remain largely focused on tennis, Agha said: The County plans to keep 27 tennis courts and hopes to bring in collegiate tennis tournaments.

ISLANDER NEWS • ISLANDERNEWS.COM PAGE 4 THURSDAY, SEPT. 6, 2018 Village Council members met July 17 to begin the challenge of prioritizing and funding projects in their Fiscal Year 2019 Capital Improvements Plan. Village Manager John Gilbert presented a list of projects totaling over $3.5 million that need to be prioritized and funded. He said there is currently a $1.7 million shortfall, and the Coun-cil’s options include eliminating projects or raising the tax rate to fund more work. Final action will be taken at the budget hearings September 11 and 25. Meanwhile, incoming Manager Andrea Agha asked Council mem-ehuv#wr#iruzdug#khu#wkhlu#wrs#=yh#projects, so she can seek consen-sus on which projects are in the “top tier” for her to start working on. She noted some projects may require contracting with subject matter experts, and she wants to make sure those costs are includ-ed in the line items. Recreation and Open Space Parks and Recreation Director Wrgg#Krrrulqj/#pool, etc.; $50,000 and $100,000 iru#=uh#dqg#srolfh#vwdwlrq#pdlqwh nance, respectively; and $120,000 iru#sod|lqj#=hog#dftxlvlwlrq1Building, Zoning and Planning and Public Works The CIP includes $250,000 for beach restoration and $25,000 for dune restoration. BZP Director Sergio Ascunce said the funding would go toward a “band-aid” project that could start this November to boost the beach as the Key pursues a larger federal project. There’s a $200,000 line for a Village Hall parking garage, though the item is “to be deter-mined; and the Council agreed to add a $100,000 line for planning and design of an enhanced li-brary.Fire-Rescue and Police/IT For Fire-Rescue, there is the '933/333#iru#d#qhz#=uh#wuxfn#dqg#$100,000 for EMS equipment. Fire-Rescue Chief Eric Lang said the suppression truck is 15 years old and near the end of its lifes-pan, as is some EMS equipment, olnh#HNJv#dqg#gh=euloodwruv=#“Some of our equipment is start-ing to get dated, and they’re not maintaining it anymore with our vendor,” he said. Mayor Mayra Pena Lindsay suggested starting a system to bank funds over several years for large vehicle buys, and Lang said he is scheduled to replace rescue vehicles in Fiscal Year 2020, but can likely push that back: “My goal is to stretch that out as long as I can – if you don’t hear any complaints that’s a good thing. We target 2020, and if need be I’ll push it back if I can.” In IT, there is $30,000 for police software, $20,000 for a police vhuyhu#dqg#=uhzdoo#dqg#'439/333# for a Computer Assisted Dispatch system. Police Chief Charles Press said the software is an ongoing contract and the new server is needed to support the CAD sys tem.Maintenance Maintenance projects in the CIP include $10,000 for the Commu-nity Center faade, $15,000 for other facilities, $5,300 for the Village Hall card and camera sys-tem, $5,000 for tree replacement, $100,000 for the Mashta Bridge and $10,000 for street light poles. The numbers are based on a =yh0|hdu#sodq#e|#pdlqwhqdqfh#consultant Paul Abbott, who will give a full report in September. Gilbert said Abbott is also looking at maintenance needs for the Beach Park and Lake Park, and Council member Katie Petros added the Village should consider a line for maintenance at the park at 401 Hampton. At the Council’s budget workshop, the Simon family, which has been doing the work on a volunteer basis, suggested the Council formalize maintenance via a contract; Hof-ferberth said he’ll put together a proposal. Local leaders also sought detail on Mashta Bridge maintenance, and Gilbert said he’ll provide a full report, noting how important the work is: “It’s a lifeline for people that live on the island.” The Manager said he fully supports maintenance line items: “Maintenance of our equipment and facilities is a top priority – staying on top of it is certainly cheaper than repairs and replace-ment.”Cultural In Cultural, the Village already has $120,000 set aside for the next Art in Public Places project and $400,000 for matching funds for a cultural grant.

ISLANDER NEWS • ISLANDERNEWS.COM PAGE 8 THURSDAY, SEPT. 6, 2018 “I would never work in Miami!” Those are the famous words of Robert Brookes, a man who has never quit moving forward – most of it right here in the Miami area. Zkhq#kh#=uvw#vwduwhg#dw#Edqn#ri# Boston it looked as though he was “on plan.” Bank of Boston transferred him and his family to Buenos Aires (during the Falklands War) and onto Istanbul. His uhsxwdwlrq#ehfdph#=upo|#sodqwhg#dv#dq#international banker – a man who could start a bank from a hotel room as he’d had to do in Turkey. The next transfer brought him to his perceived nemesis – Miami. Before Bank of Boston could transfer him again, he was recruited to be the CEO of Key Biscayne Bank & Trust, a move from international banking to community banking. His next stop: CEO of Eagle National Bank, an international bank that he rebranded into a community bank! In the meantime, he’d joined the Key Biscayne Rotary and was assigned chairman of Rotary’s Key Biscayne Art Fair. He’s also treasurer of the Miami Children’s Chorus and the Key Biscayne Chamber of Commerce. After a few more challenging assignments in banks, he “retired” and did a few projects in the banking industry…until the day, good friend and fellow Rotarian Marc Port, the owner of Key Pharmacy, and his family came and asked him to take over the day-to-day operations of the treasured Key Biscayne icon. Robert is now in the retail industry, or as he calls himself, “The steward of Marc Port’s business.” He has built up the excellent team at the pharmacy and HE LOVES IT! You can hear the enthusi-asm in his voice when he talks of telling a customer who asked for “regular” shampoo that “Key Pharmacy doesn’t do regular” and steered her to a brand more suited for her hair type! This is the ex-CEO of banks! He also does some home deliveries…he loves meeting the housebound clients of the business. Bottom line, Robert never stops moving iruzdug1##Kh#fdoov#klpvhoi#>h{leoh#dqg#adaptable. I’ll say! What’s more body bending than going from standing up straight and lending money to reaching down to the lowest shelf in the store to retrieve “Red Thyme” – one of the many nail polish colors that can be found in the store!

We won’t weigh in on which direction the Council should take – we trust our elected leaders are listening to their constituents – but we do hope they have a serious public discus sion. Big projects being discussed include beach res toration, buried utilities, hardening for sea level rise, land acquisition, library rehab, Community Center expansion, etc. It’s too early to know if each and every one of these is needed and if they have public support.

ISLANDER NEWS • ISLANDERNEWS.COM PAGE 12 THURSDAY, SEPT. 6, 2018 Lacrosse may be the newest addition to the Key Biscayne Youth Athletics family, but it is a sport rich in history. Chazz Woodson, the former collegiate and professional la-crosse player who is leading the local program, shared the story of the sport he came to love as a young boy: “Lacrosse is the fastest growing sport in the nation, and it’s actually the oldest game in North America. It was originally a Native American game known as ‘the creator’s game.’ It was played ceremoniously, as a medicine game, to settle disputes,” he said. “It’s unique in that way compared to any other sport you can think of.” While the sport has long history – and has picked up major steam in Florida in the last couple of decades Woodson’s program is new to the Key, and he’s excited to share a sport he’s played most of his life. Growing up in Virginia, he learned the game from his father, who had been introduced to it by his college football teammates. His father fell in love with the sport and had played and coached ever since, eventually sharing his passion with his son. After starring as a four-year letterman at Brown University and as an attacker in Major League Lacrosse, where he was an All-Star and Best Trick Com-petition champ, Woodson retired last year and began coaching. He is currently varsity boys’ coach at Ransom Everglades. At the same time, “I was asked to kind of create a program that would help with the development ri#odfurvvh#lq#wkh#duhd/#vshfl=fdoo|#Key Biscayne,” he said. “This is the beginning push, and from here hopefully interest will drive the use.” Lq#Nh|#Elvfd|qh/#kh#lv#r

Local leaders said they are eager to have the Village join their ranks, but Council member Brett Moss did raise one concern: that it was going too far that state in-dividuals can’t use plastic straws. Moss said the Village can likely eliminate 95 percent of the plastic straws in the community via a ban at businesses, since most of the use is at restaurants. Others agreed. “Starting with commercial limitations on things that pollute the environment is good, because commercial insti-tutions have options,” Council member Gary Gross said. “I just don’t like crossing the line into placing restrictions on what individuals can and can’t do. This accomplishes a huge majority of what we’re trying to accomplish without going that extra inch.” Village Manager Andrea Agha said eliminating individuals from the ban should also make the measure easier to enforce: “If we’re going to have an ordinance, we want it to be enforceable, and I do see enforcement challenges on the individual side,” she said. Mayor Mayra Pena Lindsay added many restaurants and businesses have already come onboard voluntarily: “They’ve taken the initiative,” she said. While Pena Lindsay and Vice Mayor Frank Caplan said they’d be OK with an all-out ban – as Caplan noted, “The policy that drove this was a sincere desire to ban these things full-stop and Esslinger • Wooten • Maxwell, Inc.

I knew you have to jump, but you have to be careful.” But when he’d cleared bar, he landed on the mat not only suc-cessfully, but with a personal best that put in well on his way to a 43wk0sodfh#=qlvk#lq#wkh#qdwlrq1 For Parker’s dad, Paul Zuccarini, who coaches his son and other kids in the Village’s Youth Track & Field program, it was rewarding to see Parker acknowledge and overcome the natural nerves a young person would feel on the national stage. “Part of being successful in any endeavor is rising up to any occasion you’re faced with,” he said. “After hearing him say that, I think that’s what happened to him. It’s a combination of becoming more coordinated and growing up, and the fact that he’s calmer and more composed. It’s neat to see sports helping him grow in terms of maturity and frq=ghqfh1$ Paul said that’s one of the main goals of the Track & Field program, and youth sports in general. He added he has seen other local students who have the potential to compete nationally and welcomes kids to the pro-gram, which is held after school at the Key Biscayne K-8 Center. For Parker, last year’s debut of the program not only provided the training he needed to make it to the Junior Olympics, it showcased the type of community support Key Biscayne is known for. Parker started with the Track & Field program in February, and worked hard to learn the new vnloov1##Lw#zdv#p|#=uvw#|hdu/#dqg#I had to practice my form and everything I did,” he said. He ultimately entered and won a regional competition, meaning it was onto the national level: The Junior Olympics held in Des Moines, Iowa in August. To get ready, he continued his training after school ended, working Monday through Thursday on running, shot put and high jump – the three skills that are part of the triathlon he would be com-peting in. He found he is especially fond of the high jump. “You have to learn wkh#irup#ri#mxpslqj#r<#rqh#ohj#and making your back curve, so you can get up over the bar,” he said. “It was scary in the begin-ning, but I learned if I jump and don’t think about it I’m probably going to make it.” Parker also discovered just how fortunate he is to train on the Key. Paul said he was heartened wr#=qg#sohqw|#ri#wudlqlqj#sduwqhuv#for his son, even during the vwl>lqj#vxpphu#prqwkv=##Lw!v#qrw#hdv|#wr#=qg#shrsoh#zkr#vd|/#‘Hey, I’ll go get real tired and real hot running in the sun,’ but a lot of people came out to run with him. That was very cool of them,” he said. “It’s hard to always do something by yourself; other people give you that extra motivation.” He also thanked Zuccarini Watershot LLC, owned by his brother, for sponsoring the team. In the end, the “it takes a Village” approach was a success: Parker and Paul made the trip to Des Moines – “I had to get up at 3:30 a.m. It was not the most ixq/$#Sdunhu#mrnhg#ri#klv#>ljkw#there – and headed to Drake Relay Stadium, where many legendary collegiate races have been held. Parker earned 10th place in the nation in the Boys 10 Triathlon with a high jump of 3 feet, 9.25 inches; shot put of 21 feet, 6 inches; and 400 meters of 71.62 seconds. The high jump and 400 meters marks were both personal records. “I was shocked that I could get my PR in two events, and it was just fun to actually be able to go there and be there with my fam-ily. I will remember it for a long time,” he said. “When I realized I wasn’t going to get a medal, I was still happy. I think it was pretty jrrg#iru#p|#=uvw#wlph1$ Indeed, Parker plans to pursue next year’s Junior Olympics competition, where he would be in the pentathlon – shot put, high jump, 1,500-meter run, 80-meter hurdles and running broad jump. Paul said he looks forward to continuing to work with Parker and the rest of his Track & Field group in the months ahead. This year, he said, he’s adding training on hurdles thanks to new equip-ment and the help of Gus Smith, a retired elite hurdler. He’s also r

THINGS I LOVE TO DO Andrew OtazoWhat is his perfect day? “Key Biscayne is the Mecca for physical activity: running, cycling, hiking, snorkeling, kayaking, swimming, diving, kiteboarding – you can do it all,” he said. “My perfect day would be when the weather is calm and cool, the sun doesn’t beat as strongly, mosquitoes are nowhere to be found.” After breakfast he’d walk his kayak to the Beach Club, carrying lunch, water and equipment. “I’d paddle past beachgoers in Crandon Park before reaching my favorite sanctuary – the mangrove forests of Bear Cut Preserve. If I time the tides correctly, the current zips me under the Rickenbacker, past the marina, into Biscayne Bay.” “Paddling past the secluded wilderness of West Point Pre-"^8out of the water ahead of my bow. Stately brown pelicans, herons, egrets, ospreys and ibis glide silently through the bright blue sky. I head toward Stiltsville’s iconic houses. Boaters occasionally speed by, but once I pass Mashta Island, the shoreline recedes. It’s just me, crystal-clear waters below, an endless sky overhead.” PERFECT DAY START THE DAY PASSING TIME “An outgoing tide whips me around the lighthouse as the sun’s last rays fade. First Venus, then Jupiter, Sirius and the stars of Ursa Major, Orion and other celestial bodies emerge from the cobalt blue sky. Just as breathtaking are ever-changing constellations of bioluminescent inverte-brates that light the ocean surface, mirroring their heav-enly counterparts. I’m traveling 8^)only companions the slow, steady rhythm of my paddle and my awestruck thoughts. I pull onto the beach as the full moon rises. I rise from my seat, breathe in the ocean air, and count myself the luckiest person on the planet.” END OF DAY d€yDE]FCa.m. in the Community Center Id€WEIGHT WATCHERSThe Weight Watchers weekly meeting is at noon at the Univer-sity of Miami Rosenstiel School, 4600 Rickenbacker Causeway, room 103.
