  • Doc Young was born back in the 20th century in Texas. After growing up in the creeks, woods and suburban areas of Arlington, and graduating High School, he joined the US Army in 1975. He was trained as an infantryman and assigned to the Berlin Brigade. While there he qualified and was selected for Officer Candidate School, with subsequent assignments in Alabama and Germany. He was honorably discharged as a Captain in 1982. Dr. Young became a night school student and completed his bachelor’s degree with Columbia College in 1986. He continued night school for his doctorate in Clinical Psychology.
  • In 1992, he completed his internship at the federal prison in Fort Worth, Texas and graduated from the Forest Institute of Professional Psychology. He completed his career with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, retiring on December 31, 2012 in Victorville, California and moving to Surprise, Arizona. In Surprise, Doc was elected president of his Homeowner’s Association board. He has been adjunct faculty at six colleges and universities and a trainer at the Federal Bureau of Prisons and presented a class to the FBI on hostage negotiations. After two years of retirement, and with his wife’s encouragement, he left retirement to accept a job with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, under Sheriff Joe Arpaio (the Tent City sheriff).
  • In 2018, he left as the Commander of the Custody Support Division. Musically, Doc has been playing guitar since he was 4 years old, learning. He first played in public performance at the Guys and Dolls dance hall in Fort Worth, Texas at age 7. In June, 2019, he took up the upright bass, as a change from guitar. In 2020, he and his wife, Tatiana visited Port Isabel and South Padre Island, where Doc has been coming since 1962. Tatiana fell in love with the beach and they bought a condo on SPI, with the idea of eventually moving there. In 2022, Doc saw this job opportunity and applied. The rest, they say, is history!

Welcome Mordi! 3rd Mural 2022
On a sunny day with a northerly wind, LIV’s Art in the Park unveiled Mordi, the pelican; finishing a triad of low-poly art murals. Over fifty spectators cheered as artists Byron Ives, Gail and Mike Farrell revealed their latest mural painting. Mordi is 12 feet tall, joining Dolphin Dolly (2019) and Sea Turtle Myrtle (2021). Mordi was inspired by one of Byron’s photographs of our many pelican friends in Laguna Madre Bay. Our community is appreciative and grateful for the efforts, time and talent of these artists in connecting our sea-faring friends with Long Island Village.
As one villager stated “We have a mural art gallery in our park!”

Howdy Long Island Village, Just a reminder that we have a couple of more months of hurricane season. Please use this time to prepare and plan for you and your property should we have one come our way. Our Winter Texan friends will be showing up soon. We wish them safe travels and look forward to having everyone back again this year. The dog park contract was recently awarded and construction has started. Looking forward to completion of this project for all to enjoy. Have a safe and happy Halloween!

Hello LIV, Summer is in full swing, and I hope everyone is having a good time. I would like to remind everyone that we are officially in hurricane season and would encourage all of you to have a plan of action in case we get a hurricane headed our way. Be prepared. First Choice Landscaping continues with the mowing at LIV. Please do us a favor and remove items from your yard if you see them in your neighborhood so your yard can be easier to mow. Please remember that flowerbeds are not part of the mowing so for those of you that have flowerbeds, we ask that you maintain these accordingly or remove them and plant sod so the landscaping company can maintain it. Curfew hours will be enforced. We ask for your cooperation and hope that you can inform your children and guests so that they can avoid any citations. While I realize everyone may be having fun, quiet time is for the benefit of everyone and curfew hours will be strictly enforced. Be kind to your neighbors and enjoy the rest of your summer.

Hello everyone,
First of all, my apologies for the inadequate landscape services LIV has been receiving lately from Maldonado Landscaping. We are actively working with them and will be making a change soon if things do not improve. We ask for your patience as we go through this process.
The new boat parking lot has been completed and available for daily use. A $10 per day use fee will apply.
The dog park area has been identified and will be located behind the basketball courts near the swimming pool. We are now ready to accept bids on this project so hopefully we can get started soon.
Sewer line clogs continue. We would appreciate it if sanitary wipes would not be flushed down the toilets. Although the wipes say “flushable” they cause quite a bit of problems to the sewer drain lines by clogging them up.
We look forward to having a great summer for all at LIV.

Hi LIV, Hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable Spring Break. • As some of you may already know, we have a Special Bond Election coming up on May 7, 2022, for infrastructure improvements at LIV. All water supply and wastewater systems, along with new streets are included in the Special Bond Election as upgrades for LIV. Information regarding the LMWD Special Bond Election on May 7, 2022. Voting will be held at the Port Isabel City Hall from 7am to 7pm. Applications for new Voter’s registration must be received by April 7, 2022. The website to request a voter registration form is www.cameroncountytx.gov. You may print one out and mail it back or you can request one to be mailed to you. You also may pick one up at 1050 E. Madison Street, Brownsville, TX. If you have questions, the number to call is 956-544-0809. For those who are eligible to vote, but will not be here on May 7th, you may request a ballot to be mailed to you. All mail-in ballots must be requested by April 26, 2022. Applications should be sent to Early Voting Clerk Remi Garza PO Box 3587 Brownsville TX 78523. Mailin ballots may be requested online also. Early Voting will be April 25-April 29 , 2022: 9 am to 7pm. April 30, 2022: 10am to 5pm and May 2-May 3, 2022: 9am to 7pm. Vote YES so LIV can have safe drinking water and a working sewer system. • Now is the time to begin evaluating what plants or trees didn’t make it through the winter so you can begin pruning your plants and removing dead trees and shrubs as needed. This is also a good time to start your maintenance and landscape improvements so that LIV can continue to look as nice as possible. • A new mural has been added to the “JAWS” area. A special thank you to residents Gail Farrell, Mike Farrell, Byron Ives, and John Nold for painting and contributing to such a beautiful picture. Stop by or slow down on Seashell Blvd by the JAWS area to look at this magnificent mural. • Water conservation is appreciated. Please fix your plumbing fixtures that are leaking water and do not overwater your lawns. Please also be careful of what you dispose of down your sinks and toilets as misc. items and debris may cause sewer line clogs and plumbing issues that affect everybody in the village. Report any water leaks to the Welcome Center. • We continue to make improvements throughout LIV’s common elements and facilities. We look forward to having a great summer and hope that all of you can have an opportunity to enjoy your home and community at LIV. Have a safe and Happy Easter! Fred Gonzalez General Manager

Hello LIV! Hope everyone had a great Valentine’s Day. As you know, Spring Break is right around the corner so make sure you start planning your outings to avoid the traffic. LIV’s Annual Meeting is scheduled on Saturday, March 5 at 1pm at the Rec-Hall. There are 4 open positions for the Board of Directors. We have 11 candidates on the ballot. Please make sure and cast your vote. Please contact the Welcome Center if you need an annual meeting packet or if you have any questions about the annual meeting. The Board of Directors and I have been very busy working with the Laguna Madre Water District and the LIV Engineer on the infrastructure project. As you may know, this project has been in motion for years. I am pleased to report that The Board has recently approved the Laguna Madre Water District to hold a special bond election for LIV in an effort to be able to finance this project through your property taxes. The project will include the replacement of all sewer and water lines, including the installation of individual property water meters, and streets for LIV. The Special Bond Election will be held at the Port Isabel City Hall on Saturday May 7, 2022. Only registered voters within LIV will be allowed to vote. This is fairly recent news so more information regarding this project and the special bond election will be sent out to everyone soon. It’s not too long before we start getting our usual summer weather back. In the meantime, we encourage a little spring cleaning around your property. This is the ideal time to be cleaning your flower beds, removing dead vegetation and trees, and getting things ready to show off your beautiful yard. Thank you in advance for your help with this. Stay healthy and safe my friends!

Hi everyone, Happy New Year!
Maldonado Landscaping is on their second round of mowing. They are trying their best to accommodate everyone’s yard but if there is something that they missed or did not do, please do not hesitate to contact the Welcome Center to report it. David Cisneros is the Account Manager and he will reach out directly to you to address your concern.
AEP is officially done with their work around the Welcome Center, which means that we should start seeing work starting soon on the boat parking lot.
Cold fronts with strong winds are blowing through so we ask that you make sure all your items are secured around your property.
The ProShop is now selling hot dogs and small pizzas for your enjoyment. Stop by and try some.
Stay healthy my friends!

As you may already know, we have changed landscaping companies. Maldonado Landscaping will be maintaining and helping us with all our landscaping needs. They have years of experience, and they have the resources I believe will make a real difference at LIV. Take the time to say hello or introduce yourself. I am looking forward to the improvements that will come throughout this next year.
Welcome back Winter Texans. LIV is glad to have you back. I look forward to meeting you and hope that you enjoy your stay.
AEP work is winding down with their work in front of the Welcome Center. They should be done soon. AEP has been very cooperative, and they extend their apologies for any inconvenience they may have caused with their work associated with upgrading electricity services to the area.
As per the Board of Directors, The Proshop will be open regular hours on Christmas and New Year’s Day. Bring your family and friends.
Thank you to those who donated and to the volunteers that hosted fundraising events to raise money for the Employee Christmas Fund. It was a success! Thank you also to all the volunteers and the hosts for the delicious food at the employee Christmas luncheon. It was very much enjoyed and appreciated!
As we end 2021, I look back and would have never ever thought I would be back in my hometown of Port Isabel. Long Island Village has given me that opportunity and I am grateful for that. My few months here have been positive, and I am really enjoying it. I would like to thank each Board Member for all the hard work they put in all year. Thank you to the owners for being involved and caring for Long Island Village. Most importantly, thank you to our wonderful staff. Long Island Village is very fortunate to have such committed, loyal, and hardworking staff. With that said, I feel we are going to have an even better 2022.
Happy New Year!
Best wishes,
Fred Gonzalez

Hello all!
Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. There is a lot to be thankful for.
AEP continues to work in our area. They should be completed with their upgrades by the end of December. The boat parking lot construction will resume as soon as AEP completes their work.
Please be patient with us as we will be going through a transition with landscaping services next month. In the meantime, we ask each of you to evaluate your own property and begin removing any dead plants or trees that were damaged as a result of this year’s freeze. Thank each one of you for doing your part in keeping LIV looking beautiful.
The employee Christmas fund is ongoing and we continue to accept donations at the Welcome Center. Thank you for your continued support. I am grateful to have such loyal employees that work hard for LIV.
Best wishes,

Fall season has kicked in and we are in full swing restoring all LIV amenities and common areas. Our first cold front came through and soon we will welcome back our Winter Texans.
As a reminder, our swing bridge has quite a bit of life to it so we need to do our part in abiding by the 5 MPH speed limit when crossing.
It is still hurricane season, so please take time to prepare your home. Put away everything that can become a hazard to others in high winds. Tie down (anchor) golf carts, boats, etc.
NOTICE TO OWNERS: It is your responsibility as a lot owner to ensure that your building sites are cleaned daily, no trash or debris that can fly around in a storm.

With school in full swing and everyone back to work, things are a bit slower here at LIV. We will begin repairs and upkeep that
inconveniences as few owners as possible during the slower times. Water heaters for the bath houses will be replaced and painting will begin as well.
