Is Sue McConnell is anyway related to Senator Mitch McConnell, they are spitting image of one another.

My congratulations to Sue Mc Connell for receiving the well deserved Golden Coconut award. It is a sad thing that one scurrilous "anonymous" writer (who ARE these people who hide behind the convenient mask of anonymity?) felt it necessary to make such a mean spirited, cruel comment about Sue.

Yes, Karen. It is people like Anonymous who keep me from posting comments. I don't want to be included in their ranks.

Sue very well deserves the award. I'd like to know what Anonymous has done to benefit Coconut Grove. Speak up, or forever hold your peace.

Sue is well deserving of the Golden Coconut and the person who posted the negative comment is a coward

All of the freaking "Golden Nuts" - whatever they are, of course mean nothing - should have gone to the awesome developers of the magnificent 27av project, which should be ready for all to enjoy in less than 15 years!

Why do people keep complaining about how long the work on 27th Ave is taking? Since I am a resident on the street we received an outline of the expected timetable for the work, and it isn't scheduled to be complete until July 2015. And the first half they completed needed much more work than the half they are currently working on. I have no problem with people complaining about construction missing deadlines and don't think that this one will be finished on time, but at least wait until they have missed their deadlines before complaining about how long it is taking to finish.
