We are not beach bums on golf carts. We are working people who drive into the city every day.” Council member Luis Lauredo “You can drown in one foot of water.

However, emer gencies occur all the time. How are you going to allow ambulances and people who need to get to a hospital if Ultra is there? Please consider not allowing this.” For UltraFollowing the lunch break, Ultra attorney and former state representative Miguel De Grandy WPOZ_SPLQ_P]YZZYOPWTMP]L_TZY^with a presentation on behalf of his client. He started with quotes from Rolling Stone and Billboard magazine naming Ultra the world’s most important and best electronic dance music event. “It is a homegrown event that T^YZbZY^TcOTP]PY_NZY_TYPY_^-making Miami a world class destination,” he said.

Acknowledging the event would inconvenience Key Biscayne residents, De Grandy said it goes with the territory. He said ancil WL]dPPN_^WTVP_]LNNSLWWPYRP^are inevitable for a world-class destination that features events like Coconut Grove Arts Festival, Miami Heat games and Calle Ocho Festival. He also chastised the village for running what he called a “cam paign based on false informa tion,” referencing a recent Miami Herald story that said post-con cert debris images, including spent hypodermic needles and sites shown in a video montage were not from Ultra “They have presented a false and slanderous portrayal of the Ultra Music Festival,” said De Grandy. Speakers for Ultra talked about it being a remarkable experience full of positive energy, creative talent, and peace-loving vibes. But the main case for the annual event was economically driven. “If you go around the world today and talk to young folks and say ‘Ultra’ they say ‘Oh Miami music it’s magic!’” said William Talbert, president and CEO of the Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau. For the hotel industry, the reve nue earned during Ultra is “some of the most productive for the hotel industry in the history of Miami. We support it strongly.” For Irvine McKnight a senior volunteer companion, the real issue isn’t heads in beds but rather African American elders getting to spend a subsidized day on the beach. “Some of them are $dPL]^ZWOZYcPOTYNZXP^and Virginia Key is the only beach they know, thanks to Jim Crow,” said McKnight. “Well those seniors support Ultra, not because they’re into electronic music, but because they’re looking for a revenue stream for Virginia Beach…so they don’t have to dig into their budget to provide an outlet for them.” Dream deferredIncluding $1 million for the Virginia Key Park Trust in the Hardemon Ultra deal, to be used for creation of an African American history museum, seemed to seal the deal. The Trust, which operates His toric Virginia Key, supported the proposal for that reason.

Our Islander News Team gives our collective THANKSGIVING to the special and warm relationship we enjoy with you, our loyal reader base. THANK YOU! 3 THINGS WE WANT TO SEE HAPPEN THIS WEEK 12 3 Back in 1966, when the Owens Family launched the Islander News, their vision was basic: Cover the life and times of this wonderful place called Key Biscayne. We realize that Key Biscayne was a X`NSOTP]PY_OL]PbP^Ld^TX[WP][WLNPMLNV_SPYM`_at its heart the publication was focused on Key Biscayne’s isues and people. As the Islander News evolved, one thing remained constant: Everyone working at the paper either resided in Key Biscayne or spent the majority of their working hours on the Island, living and breathing the wonders of life under the palms. Eventually, however, even these circumstances changed; not everyone working at the paper spent time on the island. And by that, I mean with their “feet on the streets.” This being Thanksgiving week, where we take time to express thanks and appreciation for our blessings, it is with a thankful heart that I announce that, beginning _ST^bPPV_SP4^WLYOP]9Pb^ZYNPLRLTYSL^LWWT_^^_L ers physically working on the island every day. Present among you every day, working, breathing and loving the island! It is with great pleasure that we announce that Raquel Garcia has joined the Islander news team as Associate Editor. Some of you have already met Raquel, who has been doing some writing assignments for us recently. If you have not yet met Raquel, I assure you that when you OZdZ`bTWWYOSP]PY_S`^TL^XQZ]_SPT^WLYOLYONZX munity journalism, contagious. Raquel comes to our team with a well-rounded resume, but with local journalism at its core. She holds a Masters of Arts in Mass Communica tion from the University of Florida College Of Journalism and Communications, Documentary Institute, and a BA in English from Florida State University. She has won a her share of awards in her career, including First Place for the Southeast for the Edward R. Murrow Radio and Television News Director’s Award. Raquel is an entrepreneur at heart, having worked as a publicist and journalist, always with an eye on local. Her professional stops include The Miami Herald, Community Newspapers and The Flyer and SoBe Television. Raquel resides in the Shenandoah neighborhood, just a skip across the causeway. Our mission today, as it has always been, is to advocate for things that can positively impact Key Biscayne, as well as note things that could harm our beautiful Island, such as the Ultra festival (and which Raquel reports on elsewhere in this edition of the Islander News). With our team now “all local,” we are better positioned to develop TY_P]P^_TYR[]ZWP^ZQ_SPbZYOP]Q`W[PZ[WPbSZXLVPup Key Biscayne, report the news from a more personal perspective, and providing more watchdog journalism. We are blessed with a strong Village government, but not everything is perfect and we have to make sure we also report on that. As our new Mayor MIke Davey ]PNPY_Wd_ZWOXPO`]TYRL^WTRS_OTP]PYNPZQZ[TYTZYabout campaign coverage, “Justo, you are the publisher of the local paper, I’m supposed to be pissed at you once in a while.” Mike could not be more right. Thank God, there is much more to agree on than disagree. Raquel will serve as our news leader in executing this community coverage mission.

It was re-opened in 1999 following a R]L^^]ZZ_^PZ]__SL_^`NNP^^Q`WWddefeated an exclusive resort devel opment plan. According to Hardemon, the $1 million is the key to releasing the counties’ reserve funds towards the museum, which has been on hold until the daily management cost issue was resolved. m1Z]_SP]^__TXPbPbTWWSLaP something that can provide the groundwork for that sustainabil ity,” said Tinnie. “We are talking about a structure that is more of the land than on the land.” Questions remainUltra proponents claim to have resolved the noise complaint issue, capping it at 110 decibels, which is similar to other music shows on Virginia Key. But Carollo remained skeptical, with continuing concern the noise would travel across the water and create a cacophony of problems. Although DeGrandy said the MAST Academy next door fears were a “red herring” because the event is the weekend following spring break, PTSA President of MAST, Julio De Armas, is fearful about drugs being in dangerous proximity to the public high school. BT_S]PRL]O^_Z_]LNPaPYbT_S commitment to a MOT, engineer Robert Duzoglou said the basic issue is that infrastructure has not kept up with the city’s growth. “The tremendous stress on the bridges just from the seven million cars of annual visitors that go through the tolls every year to Bill Baggs State Park is too much,” he said. City commissioner Wifredo Gort assured the Key Biscayne contingent that the island would be represented before all was said and done. Before the vote, Village council member Lauredo was allowed closing remarks. He promised to work with the process. Outside the chambers Lauredo said, “the glass is half full. We are now an integral part of the negotiation moving forward. And if the glass is half full it’s because of the citizens of Key Biscayne who moved fast and made an impact.” LETTER TO THE EDITOR On Thursday morning, Nov. 15, I drove to Miami City Hall to attend the Commissioners’ meeting con cerning the Ultra Music Festival. ?SP[L]VTYRbL^WWPObT_SNL[LN ity.

People were coming and going all morning. I was surrounded by many young people wearing Ultra shirts looking at their cell phones and not inter ested in the meeting. I thought, were these young people paid to attend the meeting, wear a shirt and occupy a seat? BSL_[WLYYTYR,W^Z[]P^PY_bP]Pmany men wearing suits carrying briefcases and others with folders WWPObT_S[L[P]^3LO_ZMPlawyers. What a set-up. Finally, speakers started to line up to discuss the issue.

The City of Miami doesn’t care about Key Biscayne or the sur rounding communities. The only thing they care about is their God – The Almighty Dollar.

THINGS I LOVE Carlos MandiolaWhat is his perfect day? Good morning Key Biscayne! It is 5:30 a.m. and time to get up and enjoy our paradise. I am going for a two-hour walk around the island to enjoy the sunrise on the beach.

After making my contacts, I go into my team meeting with my colleagues on The McCaughan Real Estate Team, Joan McCaughan, Monica Steinmuller, Brian Corbett, Elsa Corbett and John Greeven. I enjoy the collaboration and brainstorming. When it is time for lunch, I have plenty of choic-es on the island, but my favorite is a nice vegan lunch. I thrive on outdoor activities, like last weekend, when I and a team member, Elsa, were inspired to run the 41st Key Biscayne Lighthouse Run near the base of the historical lighthouse. A great opportunity to give back to the charities of our community. After the race, we stopped at the Lighthouse Restaurant, right on our beautiful beach, for Cuban 5dy"^ less you prefer sailboats, which I do!
