TENNIS, ANYONE? In Miami, Charles Rabin noted Miami-Dade (Fla.) county voters passed a "planned expansion and renovation of Key Biscayne's popular Sony Open tournament facilities" at the Crandon Park Tennis Center for which the county would have to issue $50M in bonds that would be "paid off with tournament revenue" (MIAMI HERALD, 11/7). The HUFFINGTON POST's Christiana Lilly noted "preliminary voting results" showed 72.59% of Miami-Dade voters are in favor of the renovations. A public vote was "required under Miami-Dade County's 'Save Our Parks' amendment, which protects public lands." Tournament organizer IMG said that the $50M facelift would be "funded solely by private funds and event proceeds, though that would likely happen through a revenue-backed county bonds issue" (HUFFINGTONPOST.com, 11/7).
