Their responses are:Luis “Lucho” de la Cruz Absolutely, yes. After I received your question from Ruth, I made it a point to look around our community and realized the sig-ql=fdqw#h{whqw#ri#the problem. The blue and green trash containers sit outside many homes for days and they are an eyesore. Some homes don’t ever put them away from view from the street.

We should keep these questions and answers going even after our elections are over! Michael Davey While I would prefer people self-regulate, I understand that residents are frustrated with inattention to the issue and I would support an ordi-nance requiring people to place their garbage bins out the night before and return them to the side of their houses shortly after pick-up. When I was on Council, we discussed having the contractor take and replace the bins from the sides of homes, but that wasn’t possible for a number of reasons involving security and cost. There are communities with ordinances requiring that garbage bins only be visible for limited periods. Homestead requires that household garbage only be placed out after 6pm one day prior to pick-up, and must be returned no later than 8pm the day of pick-up. We could enact a similar ordinance. But, before doing so, we should reach out to other mu-nicipalities for lessons learned, and encourage our Village resi-dents to submit public comments so we can incorporate their good ideas as we move forward.

Ignacio has made positive contributions to the Casa Del Mar Condominium Board of Directors since his election in 2012, and as Vice President since his election in 2013. Ignacio Segurola has served on the Key Committee since December, 2016. He was elected Vice President of the Presidents Council in December, 2016. We know that Ignacio has been an out standing neighbor, husband, father, Casa del Mar Board of Directors Vice Presi dent, Key Biscayne Chamber of Commerce Presidents Council Vice President. Now, we are asking that you join us and vote for Ignacio Segurola so that he will be able to help the Key Biscayne Council make the Village of Key Biscayne an even better place for all of us. Gloria and Michael Kahn Live longer and play bridge It appears to be true, if you keep your mind sharp you will live longer. My name is Judy Rosenblum and I am the Director Wednesday and Friday mornings at the Towers cardroom from 10-12 and play together is $10 a month. But this is not the only reason I write this letter. We have 51 registered members and 16 of them are over 90. Six of them are over 95 and one sharp lady named Rachel Rot tenberg will celebrate her 100th birthday this Friday with all her fellow bridge players cheering her on. So if you want to live longer you must keep that mind active and bridge is one way to do it. If you are interested in learning the game, I am thinking of starting a beginners course. Call me at 305-365-6636. If you already know the game and want to play with us, you are welcome to join our club. No partner needed.

Many of you know me, and you know that I am easy to nd! For those of you whom I have not met yet, my cell phone is on my website – mikeforkbmayor.com and I would love to hear from you about the issues that are most important to you and your family or business.I love Key Biscayne – we all do – and I have been passionate about making this the best place to live for all of us. That’s why I ran for Council in 2006 and served for two terms. During those eight years, I was honored to be elected twice as Vice Mayor by my fellow Councilmembers. We did not always agree, but we got a lot of things done by coming together, putting our egos aside, and trying to do what was best for the community. We never undermined each other, and we always respected one another’s viewpoints.Unfortunately, during the last four years, the Council has not been as effective as it needed to be. There are three people returning to Council, and I know I can work with each of them. There are ve great candidates for the three open Council seats, and I am sure that I can work with each of them, as well. We have a lot of issues that need to be addressed, but unless we have leadership that is willing to create a team, the next four years will be the same as the last four.We need to negotiate with the City of Miami, the County, the State and Federal governments. But, if we look weak, it will be impossible to get anything done. If we are divided, they can pit us against one another, and we will not get what we need to get from these negotiations. As Mayor, I will strive to bring unity and cooperation to the next Council. My name is Mike Davey and I ask for your support. There is no doubt that my opponent cares as deeply about our Village as any of us do. I understand that this is a dif cult decision, and I am honored to be on the same ballot as him, and the ve candidates for Council. My only request is that, as you think through this important decision, please privately approach some of the people you respect most who have had a hand in bringing this Village forward – incorporators, past Board volunteers, Village staff, and the people with whom I have served on Council. They know better than anyone how I can best contribute to our future. Thank you. MY FELLOW KEY BISCAYNE RESIDENTS

ISLANDER NEWS • ISLANDERNEWS.COM PAGE 12 THURSDAY, OCT. 18, 2018 written by Antonio Camejo special to The Islander News As we approach the U.S. 2018 mid-terms, Republicans are con-cerned that some Democrats are now openly embracing socialism and warn that “we do not want to become another Venezuela.” Democrats counter that Venezue-la is not really a good example of a socialist country, that it is simply a corrupt and incompetent mess. It is indeed that and much more, but if it is not socialist as its own government claims, what then is it? Some former pro-socialist Venezuelans question if the govern-ment should now be considered fascist. It is closely allied with Iran and the virulently anti-Se-mitic Hezbollah and Hamas have zkdw#dprxqwv#wr#r?fldo##hpedv sies” in Venezuela. It violently re presses peaceful demonstrations and sends armed goon squads to intimidate opponents. It tortures and kills political opponents in prison. But that presents another problem. What does it say about the Cuban government that not only supports Maduro, but actually has some 40,000 of its citizens running critical parts of the government and supervising the Venezuelan armed forces? Is Cuba supporting a fascist regime? Socialism never comes overnight. It creeps up in baby steps. “Social justice” typically means taxing the very rich and then the middle class to help the poor. But the Chavez government had a huge advantage. They controlled and owned Venezuela’s oil pro-duction and the largest known oil reserves in the world. Surely, they could redirect some of this wealth to the poorest sectors of the country without too much disruption. But all commerce and services, including the majority of employment, was provided through a generally free market economy. It was precisely the disruption of the private economy through expropriations and regulations such as strict price and currency controls that even-tually led to critical shortages of food, medicines and everyday necessities. Then world oil prices collapsed and Chavez’s death in 2015 led to a transfer of power to hand-picked Maduro. Maduro is now blamed for the current crisis. But it was Chavez who squandered billions buying srolwlfdo#lq>xhqfh#wkurxjkrxw#Latin America while propping up the failing socialist economy of Cuba with 36.5 million barrels of free oil per year. He even gave cheap oil to John Kennedy’s qrq0sur=w#wr#glvwulexwh#khdwlqj#oil to the “poor” in Massachu-setts. Chavez imagined himself Robin Hood. But his regime didn’t just steal from the rich and give to the poor; they stole from everyone and kept everything. Corruption became rampant.

Key Cosmetic ConcernsPRP treatments can stimulate hair growth in patients Dear Dr Kelly: I’m a hairdresser on the Key. One of my clients said she had an injection of her blood into her scalp a few months ago and I am really seeing increased hair growth for her now. How does this work? Thanks for writing. Your client was treated with PRP, which stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. PRP is a natural substance that we all have in our blood stream. PRP contains growth factors which stimulate hair to grow. These growth factors can also be helpful for improved healing after other surgical procedures such as orthopedic surgery and dental work. PRP is obtained by removing a tube of blood from the patient. The blood is spun in a centrifuge which allows the platelet rich portion to separate out. It can be drawn up and then injected into the parts of the scalp where the hair is thinning. The entire procedure takes 10-15 minutes. Best results are obtained when the patient does a series of three injections once a month for three months. Follow up treatments can be done every six months later. The best candidates are women with thinning hair and men with early stage hair loss. The follicles still need to be present and waiting to be switched back on. Unfortunately, it won’t give a bald man a head full of hair! Those patients are better candidates for hair trans-plants, a surgical procedure. But for patients with thinning hair, this is a nice, non-invasive option that really works. DR.

Otazo – who has been honored as a “Beach Ambassador” by the Village for his work cleaning the mangroves and educating others to protect the environment – will debut the book, which he is also turning into an animated TV series, at a live reading Thurs-day, October 25. Leading up to the event, he took the time to answer some questions for The Islander News What inspired you to write this book? The Miami Creation Myth is a love letter to my city. All great civilizations, from the Greeks to the Egyptians, Norse, Maya and Japanese have their own mythic sagas – great sweeping qduudwlyhv#wkdw#gh=qh#wkhlu#gods, heroes and villains. These stories hold a mirror to a community and recount who they are and how they came to be. I grew up in Miami and know it is a globally unique amalgamation of many amazing cultures. I therefore wanted to give South Florida its own mythic cycle replete with an epic origin story and pantheon of deities. What is the book about, and how did you research and write it?

Is concierge medicine for you?written by Raniero Gimeno, MBA special to The Islander News Concierge medicine has become increasingly prevalent in the past few years. Also known as bou-tique medicine, concierge med-lflqh#lv#=jkwlqj#edfn#djdlqvw#d#healthcare system that can leave both patients and physicians behind. People across the entire economic spectrum are joining concierge medical programs for a lot of reasons. Topping the list is usually the ability to receive high quality medical care, quick access to a high-caliber physician for timely diagnosis, and immediate treatment that can save lives and prevents acute problems from becoming critical. Concierge practices charge an annual retainer fee to guarantee more personalized, in-depth care and availability. Concierge med-icine is a simple concept: rather than wait in crowded waiting rooms for care from over-worked doctors who might not be avail-able for an appointment for days or weeks, patients choose to pay an annual fee to a doctor who will be available to you 24/7. Concierge medicine was born out of the growing role of the consumer patient in healthcare. As patients began bearing more =qdqfldo#uhvsrqvlelolw|/#wkh|#also began demanding a better healthcare experience. Patients are looking for shorter wait times, high-quality healthcare, and a better patient-to-doctor rela-tionship, three things concierge medicine ideally delivers. In ad-dition to 24-hour access to their physician, patients can expect last-minute appointments lasting an hour or more, more person-alized visits, fast-track referrals and hospital admissions, family pricing, home visit availability, telemedicine options, concierge pharmacy and lab services, and much more. “Patients are able to quickly access their doctor directly and spend more time with them, thus increasing patient satisfaction” Justin Polga, MD. With constant access to their physician, patients say that cost is well worth the price. Because of the extra time, concierge doctors are typically more thor-ough, they’re more connected to patients, and there’s a lot of research that shows that the better your connection with your doctor, the better the outcome. The physician shortage and issues of doctors burning out is continu-ing. The Association of American Medical Colleges reports that by 2030, the U.S. will face a shortage of between 40,800 and 104,900 physicians. Further making the case for concierge medicine. In the future, concierge medicine will be well-placed to be able to further personalize care (aka, precision medicine), using DNA to learn even more about patient health and what could help them live a long and healthy life. Precision medicine is an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person. This approach will allow doctors and researchers to predict more accurately which treatment and prevention strategies for a par-ticular disease will work in which groups of people. It is in contrast wr#d#rqh0vl}h0=wv0doo#dssurdfk/#lq#which disease treatment and pre-vention strategies are developed for the average person, with less frqvlghudwlrq#iru#wkh#gl

The path to creating the Center for Great Apes began after Miami native and founding director Patti Ragan volunteered on a rehabili-tation project for wild orangutans in the rainforests of Indonesian Borneo. In 1990, Ragan was asked to foster a 4-week-old infant orangutan and soon after a 3-month-old baby chimpanzee in Miami. Knowing her wards would ultimately have to live their adult lives at a sanctuary but aware there was nowhere in the United States with orangutans or experi-ence caring for them, she decided to create one. In 1993, the Center for Great Apes was launched in Miami, and in 1997 it relocated to Wauchula to 15 acres of tropical, wooded habitat surrounded by orange groves and away from development. Today, the sanctu-ary encompasses over 100 acres and is home to 21 orangutans and 31 chimpanzees, including Bub-eohv/#Plfkdho#Mdfnvrq!v#=uvw#dqg#favorite pet chimpanzee. The Center for Great Apes returns to its roots in the Miami-Dade area for the 25th anniversary celebration. Guests are invited to join board members dqg#vwd<#iurp#wkh#fhqwhu#zkr#will share stories about the past quarter-century and how these experiences have impacted their lives and, more importantly, the more than 60 great apes who have resided at the sanctuary. Zoo Miami Goodwill Ambassador Ron Magill is the featured speaker.

Tickets can be purchased at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/ cga-25th-an-niversary-tickets-47968364670. Center for Great Apes The Center for Great Apes provides a permanent sanctuary for orangutans and chimpanzees who have been rescued or retired from the entertainment industry, research or exotic pet trade. This is no small feat – great apes re-quire a team of dedicated doctors and caregivers, as well as habitats that allow them to live out their lives fully and with dignity. The center includes 18 large, three-story high domed enclo-sures where the chimpanzees and orangutans live and play. The apes live in species-spe-fl=f#vrfldo#jurxsv#lq#rxwgrru#compounds where they spend much of their time. The habitats include lush, green surroundings and outdoor living areas that provide plenty of running room, climbing space and structures, and height for swinging through their environment on vines, plus numerous toys, tubs, culverts and enrichment devices. Attached to each habitat is a night house that provides a place to sleep at night, as well as a retreat from inclem-ent weather. An aerial trail allows the chimpanzees and orangutans to travel throughout the grounds. Additionally, a specially designed indoor and outdoor area accom-modates the unique needs of handicapped and older apes. The center also focuses on educating the public about great apes in captivity and the threats to their conservation in the wild. The center receives no government funding and relies on memberships, donations, private grants and fundraising. Residents can support the center by becoming sanctuary members, participating in the Legacy pro-gram, and joining the symbolic “Adopt an Ape” program, where the adoption fee goes towards basic needs such as food, medical care, and habitat maintenance. For more information, please visit www.centerforgreatapes.org. Along with the center’s advisory board members, Dr. Jane Goodall (founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace), Dr. Ian Singleton (Direc-tor of the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme), and the participation of donors, the center hopes to one day see all captive great apes live in a com-munity of compassion, without the threat of exploitation, experi-mentation, abuse or neglect, until there is no need for sanctuary rescue. continued from 21 APES ABOVE: PepplesAT LEFT: Bubbles enjoys paint-ing.
