At an August 28 Village Council meeting, Mayor Mayra Pena Lindsay called for a discussion on iguana control, noting, “It’s a problem that comes up over and over again in our community. It has a lot of challenges, be-cause the iguanas are on private property. They’re dirty, they’re aggressive. They’re creating havoc.

ISLANDER NEWS • ISLANDERNEWS.COM THURSDAY, SEPT. 13, 2018 PAGE 5 Improving transportation to MAST Academy won’t just give teens a few more minutes of precious sleep in the morning, it could reduce congestion and en-hance safety on the Rickenbacker Causeway, local leaders say. Village Council member Luis de la Cruz, a candidate for Mayor, called for a discussion August 28, noting, “We’ve all been listening to a lot of our residents talking about the transportation issues with respect to students getting to and from MAST Academy.” Resident Julie Dick gave voice to that, noting the Key relies on a limited number of buses that the Miami-Dade County School District has available. She said an inordinate number of parents on the Key end up carpooling to MAST because the bus is so early – for example, her 8th-grader would have to be picked up at 6:45 a.m. for an 8 a.m. start to the school day. Dick said if the Village works with the school district on a better busing situation or starts its own trolley, “We would reduce wud?f/#dqg#frxog#lpsuryh#wkh#quality of life for parents.” De la Cruz said Council member Allison McCormick has been working closely on the issue, and asked McCormick to give a full report. McCormick said there are several options, and she is hope-ful the Village can work with the new administration at MAST – Dr. Derick McKoy, the school’s new principal, introduced himself to the Council August 28 – on real solutions. She said biking is one option.

ISLANDER NEWS • ISLANDERNEWS.COM PAGE 6 THURSDAY, SEPT. 13, 2018 Village focuses on partnership as new principal takes the reins at MAST bigger issue and a widespread issue, and they’re working on it aggressively.” Pena Lindsay said McKoy’s background provides him plenty of experience with which to take the reins at MAST. He has spent 30 years in education, starting as a middle school science teacher after graduating from Florida State University. He earned a Master’s of Science Education at the University of Miami and a doctorate with a specialty in school management at Nova Southeastern University. McKoy has had several leadership roles, including time as an assistant high school principal, middle school principal and ele-mentary school principal. During the latter, his most recent role, he collaborated with community agencies to create after-care programs for at-risk children. Pena Lindsay added he also took part in a grant program during which administrators attended Harvard University courses and met with other urban principals from across the world. Vkh#vdlg#vkh#lv#frq=ghqw#PfNr|# will be an excellent ambassador for MAST Academy and the Mi-ami-Dade Public School System as a whole. The community got a chance to meet the new leader of MAST Academy, with local leaders highlighting the importance of the Village’s partnership with the school. Vice Mayor Frank Caplan also took the opportunity to pledge to work with MAST leaders on a tough issue: racial tensions that arose at the end of last school year. Mayor Mayra Pena Lindsay introduced Dr. Derick McKoy at an August 28 Council meeting. “We’re delighted to be able to introduce you to the greater community, and we’re delighted you’re onboard – we’re in great hands,” she said. “We really val-ue our public-school system and our Miami-Dade Public School administration, and we value our partnership.” Caplan, who as Mayor spearheaded the agreement that created the Key Biscayne MAST program, also spoke to the value of that partnership, especially in relation to racial tensions that emerged last year, which he described as “a pestilence in the school.” “I’m relaying this information to you and our desire to verify, =uvw#ri#doo/#zkdw!v#jrlqj#rq>#dqg/#secondly, to determine what we ought to be doing about it,” he said. “We’re invested in MAST. We care. If there’s a role for us to play, we are inclined to play a role.” Pena Lindsay said she is aware of a lot of discussion about the issue at the school district level. “Both Dr. McCoy and the diswulfw#duh#wdnlqj#d?updwlyh#vwhsv#to address it,” she said. “It’s a that are almost empty in the morning, as parents opt to drive their kids to school or carpool. “It pdnhv#d#whuuleoh#wud?f#vlwxdwlrq#zruvh##rq#wkh#=uvw#gd|/#wkh#gurs0r<#olqh#zdv#edfnhg#xs#wr#the Bear Cut Bridge,” McCormick said. “It’s clearly a problem.” She said the afternoon busing system also presents concerns: Those buses are often overcrowd-ed, and some kids get left behind at school. The school recently created designated spots for kids wr#zdlw#dv#r?fldov#fdoo#hdfk#exv/#but it’s causing kids to get home much later. No matter what, McCormick said at this point she feels it’s important to continue working with Miami-Dade Schools to see what can be done. “We are really trying to address it and are aware that there are real concerns.

Brennan said the problem is compounded because there is no natural antidote, the creatures have no natural predators, and Key Biscayne is an island. “This is a common concern and a topic of conversation in our community,” she said. “Some-thing needs to be done, and this is a needed, appropriate role for the Village government and the use of our tax dollars.” Pena Lindsay said Village Manager Andrea Agha has been looking into iguana control on sxeolf#surshuw|#wr#wu|#wr#=qg#d#solution that can then be taken to private property. That could involve trapping iguanas, addressing reproduction, putting out lists of plants that they don’t eat, etc. “We need to start working on this,” she said. Council member Gary Gross, noting Key Biscayne can’t be the only community facing the issue, suggested contacting other communities or pest control companies for ideas. Agha said she will continue looking into the issue and will report back to the Council. session prior to the second budget hearing, noting the timing is good since a purchase would have a clear budgetary impact.

Council members will have a fuller discussion aimed at an-swering that question right before their second budget hearing September 25. The special meet-ing will start at 5 p.m. On August 28, Council members indicated they’re in consensus that they want to acquire the entry block property for public use, but acknowledged key details like the price they’re willing to pay and the ultimate use of the property remain up in the air. Council member Katie Petros called for the discussion on the 28th, noting this May the owners of the lot submitted an appraisal of just over $20 million to the administration, and said they would be willing to sell it to the Village for $17.1 million. “We need to have a discussion on whether to come up with a frxqwhur

It marks the culmination of the 10 Days of Awe, a period of introspection and repentance that follows Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year; and is the day when Jewish com-munity across the world unite in atonement and forgiveness. The Chabad Key Biscayne, 101 Harbor Drive, is holding the ser vices: There is a Kol Kidrei Service at 7 p.m. Tuesday, September 18, and fasting begins at 7:02 p.m. On Wednesday, September 19 Morn ing Service is at 9:30, Yizkor at noon, Afternoon Service at 6 p.m. and Neilah at 6:30. Fasting ends and there will be a Communal Break Fast at 8:09 p.m. Recited by community members who have experienced the death (G-d forbid) of a parent, sibling, spouse or child, Yizkor gives space to remember one’s loved ones communally on a day that emphasizes communal unity and personal growth. Yizkor is one of the most powerful moments of Yom Kippur and allows communi ty members to make space for lost loved ones on this important day, and to remember those family members as a new year begins. Yizkor allows us to connect not just with our family, but also with family members who are no longer with us. Yizkor puts Yom Kippur in perspective: As we move forward in our lives, it allows us to look back and under-stand where we came from. All community members who wish to attend Yizkor are welcome to join the community in remembering their loved ones. Yom Kippur is the day when G-d forgives all of the Jewish people’s sins, both as individuals and as a community. By the same token, Jews around the world will spend the day in prayer – atoning for their sins, thanking G-d for his forgiveness and focusing on self-improvement for the year to come. Because of the day’s im-portance, Jews focus on prayer so much that they do not eat, drink or work. Yizkor adds to the day’s solemnity and brings community members together as they begin a new year.

Michele Estevez, volunteer extraordinaire and founder of Michele & Associates, said, “My perfect day includes making sure I planted a seed at work, helping a friend or a stranger, making someone laugh, shar-ing a hug and telling my sons I love them. Lucky me, I can do it all right here.” Estevez starts her days with a positive outlook, treasuring time with friends. If she has visitors, great food and a welcoming smile from owners Reina and David Gonzalez at Boater’s Grill is a must. Other favorites are Novecento – an extension of her own kitchen – Puntino pizza, La Despensa’s Spanish tortilla, Kazumi’s crab salad, Costa Med and Golden Hog. As a busy property manager and volunteer for the Chamber of Commerce, 4th of July Parade, Community Founda-tion, etc., Estevez seeks out challenges and ways to help: zI"")8your purpose in life – my life is on the island, and my purpose is to touch as many lives as I can. As an immigrant living on the island for 39 years, I give thanks for how lucky I am to live here and be able to walk the beach and watch a sun-d{q)with sons Oscar and Fredy; shopping at Menocento, Nou-ba, Tinky’s and Toy Town; and visiting D’Luna, BBT, Iberia and Bank of America.

ISLANDER NEWS • #tasteofkeybiscayne PAGE 17 THURSDAY, SEPT. 13, 2018 Classic Italian Cuisine 180 Crandon Blvd | Key Biscayne, FL 33149 | (786) 773-3633 Mon-Thu 6pm to 10:30pm • Fri-Sat 6pm-11pm • Closed Sunday lascalakb.com Join us for an unforgettable night at Key Biscayne’s most authentic Italian eatery. SIMPLE | SEASONAL | ITALIAN for South Florida and Puerto Rico. I always liked the franchise model, and back then, Domino’s was growing rapidly, so when the opportunity arose to open Key Biscayne I jumped on it. That was back in 1991. Q: What is your secret to success? A: There is a saying en espaol which says, el que tenga una tienda que la atienda (loses the rhyme on translation but, if you have a store, work it). You have to be here. We strive to provide the best customer service within our model and adhere to the consis-tent quality standards Domino’s holds us to. Q: What’s your proudest moment in your career? A: Besides becoming a franchisee for Domino’s – there are only two of us in South Florida – I would have to say when I became Director of Operations for Dom-ino’s in South Florida and Puerto Rico. Q: Any funny stories you can share? A: Cesar laughs as he recalls an incident shortly after opening. He sodfhg#d#odujh#lq>dwdeoh#edoorrq#with the Domino’s logo in front of the shopping center. A lady came in mad, saying this was not Hialeah and to take the balloon down! Q: What do you love most about your career? A: The personal relationship you develop with our customers; a lot of them become friends. We are thankful that we are success-ful in this competitive business. Q: What is your favorite dish from the Domino’s menu? A: I love our specialty pizzas. We use real cheese – you would be surprised how many pizza places do not – and I love our six-cheese pizza. Also spinach feta. Q: What is your favorite junk food? A: #Iurp#Grplqr!v/#gh=qlwho|# the chicken wings! We do not fry them, we run them through the oven twice. I also enjoy a good burger. Q: What do you like to do in your free time? A: Play tennis! As much as I can, at least two or three times per week. Q: What’s your favorite part about working in Key Biscayne? A: It is such a beautiful place. When you drive across the bridge and see the ocean and the boats, it’s fantastic. We are a Key Bis-cayne family: My wife Veronica works at the Presbyterian school and my daughters have both attended St. Agnes. My youngest, Lvdeho/#mxvw#=qlvkhg#Vw#Djqhv#and is now at LaSalle. My oldest, Nicole, attends Miami-Dade College. I have a friend of mine who refers to Key Biscayne as Disneyland because it’s so safe. Q: What would people be surprised to know about you? A: I’m a little tough with our employees. I like things to be done the right way. Also, at one point, I also owned the Subway franchise next door. Q: What’s your advice for someone thinking of getting into this industry? A: Be ready for lots of hours. Only get in it if you have the time to dedicate to it. Do not be afraid of hard work. continued from 16 DOMINO’S #TASTEOFKEYBISCAYNE CORRECTION In our August 30th issue, we errone-(8three Spanish Chefs at Kebo Restaurant.
