We feel this public show of support for these hard working candidates is an essential part of what makes election time in Key Biscayne unique. In addition, as our friend, Raul Llorente mentions in his Guest Commentary this week, it is what the Village Charter envisioned when written back in 1991. Next week, in our November 1t edition we will once again print as many, if not all, of citizens endorsements we receive, Endorsements should be limited in length, signed and be emailed to editor@islandernews.comA safe, fun and Spooktacular Halloween Remove “trick” when referring to Halloween in our Island; it is just a TREAT! Drive through our 1by 1.5-mile Island and you’ll feast on a plethora of decorated homes, each seemingly more outrageous or scarier than the last. More over, the excitement is building with so many Halloween related events planned around the Village. Things really get going to morrow night (Friday) with several events kicking off six fun and candy-filled days of Halloween mania. Village Green will become Zombieville (our made up word) with the fifth annual Zombie Crawl at the Village Green Fountain. There is also plenty of fun and scary creations planned at Bill Baggs with their annual Haunted Hike, happening Friday and Saturday. And many of our shopping centers and businesses are holding special events to celebrate Halloween. Some examples include Illustradent (240 Crandon) collaborating with the Kiwanis of Key Biscayne to throw a party at their offices from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Wednesday. However, as much fun as Halloween affords us, please take measures to keep our little Islanders safe. Watch for cars while crossing streets trick-or-treating, check candies they receive maintain a reasonable curfew for the youngest and above all, use com mon sense. If something feels odd or unsafe, it probably is. Be safe – enjoy a Spooktacular time!Take advantage or early voting Early voting started this past Monday. This is a good opportunity for those who do not want the hustle and bustle of Election Day. While there are no early voting facilities on the Island, the closest location is just a short drive at the Historic Garage, 3250 S.

Enterococcus is found in human fecal material. The Islander reported this YOTYRYZ__ZZWZYRLRZ-`__SP]PbL^YZfollow-up. I suggest that our Village Council and its millionaire payrollers take a good look at this photo. If they have a list of priorities to solve, it does appear to be based on common sense. Our beach is probably the most important attraction to live or vacation here. Our merchants count on our tourists for their income, and they pay huge taxes. Our tourists are the fount of our merchant economy. But his year, tourists know better and are not coming. This summer must have been disastrous to our hotels, resorts and beach attendance. The egregious problem is not the “Battle with the Iguanas” that the Is-lander headlined recently. Nor is it the Never Trump protests, global warming, police brutality nor the MeToo feminist movement. The beach destruction is the larger and most important issue right This photo shows the Key Biscayne beach Sunday, September 30 at 10 a.m. h 'œ^pœnXP now. It has reached emergency propor-tions today. I have these questions for you: 1) Why hasn’t the Islander conducted a DEEP in vestigation on our beach contamination? Why haven’t we been informed of the terrible tourist attendance of the beach? In real numbers, how much have our hotels and other resorts lost this year so far? 2) Why hasn’t our well-paid Village Manager investigated this problem? Is he blind or does he live in a bubble? 3) Is the Village Council asleep or what? 4) Do you know the source of the contami-nants? Why not? Have you really looked? 5) Why don’t you rent a helicopter or a small airplane and take photos? You XTRS_WPL]YLWZ_]^_SLYOLYO_PLNS`^the taxpayers, a thing or two.— Charles A. Santos-Buch, MD

ISLANDER NEWS • ISLANDERNEWS.COM PAGE 18 THURSDAY, OCT. 25, 2018 What Peter Verbeeck remembers most about his formative years growing up in Africa when his parents were stationed in the Congo, was the majesty and grace ZQ_SP_LWWRT]LP^SPPYNZ`Y_P]POand the way the Congolese people joyously came together when basic community needs were met. Those lasting impressions were profound enough to motivate Verbeeck to ultimately start a 501c 3 to fund local sustainable economic projects on the conti-nent. He recently renamed one of those educational endeavors The Eric P. Verbeeck Journey of Hope School in honor of his late son who passed last March. On Saturday October 27 the Key Biscayne Beach Club will host the Inaugural “Eric P. Verbeeck Journey of Hope School Hallow-een Party and Masquerade Ball” including dinner, entertainment, LYOL>LQL]T=LP&LWW_ZMPYP_fresh water resources and new schools in Ghana and Haiti. “I’ve always had a passion to do projects in Africa and after retiring three years ago I got more involved with the Rotary organization. I found that whenever you have a dream it absolutely can become a reality,” said Verbeeck. “Then when Eric passed away I thought wouldn’t it be amazing to name the schools after him and leave that legacy…a lot of people came together to be very supportive so his passing did not go in vain.” Nearly 15% of teenagers, according to the American Founda-_TZYQZ]>`TNTOP;]PaPY_TZY^`P]as Eric did with a profound sense of isolation and inability to adapt to an online world where a sense of community among your peers may seem elusive. “My son Eric committed suicide and it’s a huge problem in America that has increased dramatically. But there are so many projects emerging out of this conversation that was taboo before. In the high schools there are programs like “Interact” for kids to talk, ask for help, and not feel alone.” Verbeeck estimates that about 184 children per school in various Ghanaian towns like Sunyani, Wa, LYO>ZYZ]ZL^PbSP]P_SP]^_0]TNSchool broke ground in Septem ber-will be educated as a direct re sult of an Eric P. Verbeeck School. He credits that in large part to the organization and backing of the Rotary Club of Key Biscayne. “The beauty with Rotary is that by funding these projects it goes to the Rotary Foundation. They have matching grants that come in so every dollar we collect goes to a Rotary Club in that country to make sure it gets spent where it’s supposed to.” Verbeeck hopes his hometown community of 28 years will come together Saturday in a spirit of building family and friendship to enjoy live performances from the Sasa African Dance Theater, and donate to a worthy cause for Africa and Haiti in honor of Eric, and so many others like him, gone too soon.

ISLANDER NEWS • ISLANDERNEWS.COM PAGE 26 THURSDAY, OCT. 25, 2018 Our beloved Nana She was known by many as “Laurie from Key Colony” but at home with family she was called Nana. With heavy heart we share that our Nana has gone to be with her Dear God. She took her last breath just before sunrise October 13th at home with loved ones by her side. She was fearless and had an iron will to live, de ed the odds time and time again over these past few years. As it became more dif cult for her recently, she knew it was time to put things in God’s hands. Her unending love and devotion to her family will forever live in our hearts.Born Lorraine Long in New York City on November 29, 1927 to her “Mama and Daddy”, Julia and Charles Long. She grew up in Queens, New York of Irish immigrant parents and was a proud, beautiful, principled, intelli-gent, humorous, and hardworking product of her times. After graduating from Woodrow Wilson High School she began professional career at Bankers Trust Co. in Manhattan. Lorraine loved to share stories about the 1940’s Manhattan business world. She was proud of years spent in many professional capacities. All who knew her loved and respected her. Her generosity, loyalty, and wit were just a few of Lorraine’s undeniable attributes. She often said that she “didn’t have time for hobbies because I am a worker”. Her proudest roles in life were being Kelly’s mother and Alexandra “Dolly’s” grandmother. Nana’s love was immeasurable and unconditional. She was provider, protector and constant as the North star. Lorraine and family moved from New York to Key Biscayne in 1978. The island remained her home and her work place for 35 years. In 2013, she moved to nearby Pinecrest to live with her daughter and son-in-law, Kelly and Bob DerHagopian. These recent years were lled with happy times, surrounded by many cats, dogs and friends. She never missed an episode of Fox’s “The Five” accompanied by a glass (or 2) of sweet red wine or on special occasion one of Bob’s gin & tonics. She read newspaper from cover to cover daily. She could spell most words in the dictionary and give their de nition. She loved Frank Sinatra sing-a-longs on the iPad, singing “God Bless America” and proudly reciting the Pledge of Allegiance at any time of the day. She was a erce pa-triot of the United States of America. She had an opinion about everything and was not shy sharing hers. Nana was truly the “wind beneath our wings” and she will forever remain alive in our hearts. Lorraine is survived by her daughter and son-in-law Kelly and Robert DerHagopian, granddaughter Alexandra Burns, sister and brother-in-law Ellen and Donald Haug and niece Kim and Joe Miles. Funeral Mass Saturday October 27th at The Church of St. Louis, 7270 SW 120 St., Pinecrest, Florida at 2:00 p.m. Lorraine will be re-united in burial with her “Mama and Daddy” in a private family service in New York. Lorraine M. Dion November 29, 1927 – October 13, 1918 When 3 year old Silvio Alejandro Plata was diagnosed with Bilateral Retinoblastoma and lost his sight, his prospects looked dim. Today, thanks in part to programs like “The Arc Project Thrive” early intervention, Plata is a 14 year old student at the Doral Conservatory School of the Arts known for his stirring ukulele rendition of “Over the Rainbow.” Plata is considered an Arc of South Florida champion. His blossoming life is the perfect demonstration of what can happen when people and causes come together in support of co-creating a brighter future for those in need. On November 15th from 6 to 11pm at the Rusty Pelican, the community has an opportunity to help kids and adults like Plata, while enjoying stunning sunset views and amazing wines at the 14th Annual Rotary Key Biscayne Wine & Food Fest. Rotarian Ruben Weisson has led the Wine Fest fundraiser since T_^]^_dPL]L__SPQZ]XP]6PdBiscayne Sonesta, to last year’s record breaking attendance of 400 at the Rusty Pelican. This year they secured the entire ballroom. Enough space for 500 guests to comfortably mingle and sample over 30 wines paired with delicacies from select area restaurants. He said monies raised go well beyond South Florida. “The idea originated around 2003 as a way to create a second annual fundraiser (besides the art show) that would take advan-tage of the matching grants the Rotary District and Rotary Inter-YL_TZYLW1Z`YOL_TZYNLYZP]nsaid Weisson. “Over the years we have raised over $400,000 through these global grants to support projects in Nicaragua, Peru, Colombia, Ar gentina…and contributed to the equipping of the ACE School in Florida City that helps hundreds of local children.” The ARC of South Florida is ZYPWZNLWMPYPNTL]dLYOT_LW^Zcollaborates with the Rotary to extend those funds further to groups like the Key Biscayne Community Foundation’s Chief Press Youth Project in Liberty City. Gabriel Parra has been with ARC for 26 years and just recent-ly assumed the role of executive director. “When it comes to distribution we get a percentage and the rest is shared with other programs,” said Parra. “We have children’s programs for all ages with intellectual or developmental disabilities. The help goes to equipment we can’t get from the school system for example. So you are not just enjoying a nice cup of wine LYOYOTYRZ`_LMZ`_bTYP]TP^around the world and food pairings; your ticket allows you to have a good time…and give back.” Wine & Food Fest Founder Toasting philanthropic visions for a better tomorrow at the 14th Annual Rotary Key Biscayne Wine & Food Festwritten by Raquel Garcia Special to The Islander News Weisson said the best satisfaction for him the day after the event is the lasting impact it creates in our community. “The party will come and go, the food will be eaten, the wine will be drunk, and the music will fade. But the training, education, and sustain-able impact we will have on the lives of others less fortunate lasts a lifetime.” ABOVE: Rotary Key Biscayne Wine & Food Fest Founder Ruben Weis-son (second from left) recognizing supporters at last year’s event.
