South Beach Constellation Concierge Escorts Hurricane Season Out and Ushers in Fall with South Beach Season Kick-Off Party to Raise Funds for Hurricane Victims.

The first party of the Season raises funds for Madison Avenue for Kids, Florida International University, and Florida’s hurricane victims.

The Constellation Concierge is taking the lead in hosting a much-needed “ South Beach soiree “ on Saturday, October 9th, to shake off the effects of hurricane season and raise funds for Florida’s hurricane victims. Fraser Allport, Constellation’s founder, said, “ Everyone in South Florida needs relief from these storms. It’s time to break the cabin fever and have some real fun, South Beach style. Constellation is all about leadership for a good cause, with panache and pizazz. The Constellation Foundation is going to make a donation to the Red Cross for every person attending the South Beach party.”

Now the waiting begins.

It will be exactly two weeks before we know where the Penn State Nittany Lions will go bowling. Saturday’s action narrowed the list down some. But not much.

Penn State is virtually certain to be invited to one of three bowls – either the Orange (Jan. 5) or the Fiesta (Jan. 4) of the BCS strata – or the Capital One (Jan. 1) of the second tier.

The most compelling debate will surround the Orange Bowl and, without getting into all the arcane process here, it will likely pit Big Ten members Penn State and Iowa against each other.

Penn State climbed one spot to No. 13 in the BCS standings released Sunday, which almost certainly clinches its eligibility for a BCS postseason game. Two notes of interest, however: Iowa rose to No. 11, which is two places above Penn State and one ahead of Oklahoma State.

Having Iowa rank ahead of Oklahoma State and Penn State gives the BCS bowls added incentive to choose the Hawkeyes, but it’s certainly not make-or-break. As Michael Kosnitzky, a member of the Orange Bowl committee, said Saturday, his bowl will weigh a host of factors, including historical record, how well fans travel and the value for the local ticket-purchasing base.

“The important point I want to make is, it’s not just a one-year evaluation,” Kosnitzky said. “You look at historic winning percentage and how the school’s national profile shakes out. Those are all factored in. I don’t want to imply it’s a one-year view. It’s not a snapshot.”

Oct. 26–Backed by a $4 million grant from the Kellogg Foundation and four years of study, Community Voices Miami unveiled an ambitious plan Friday to deal with the problems of people without health insurance by drawing on the resources of employers, governments and healthcare providers.

The Miami Action Plan for Access to Healthcare includes goals to get more workers into employee-based insurance, put more people into the state-federal Medicaid program and cover more children through school-based medical programs.

Mar. 28–David Boies, one of the country’s most famous lawyers, has made a bold move into Miami with plans to acquire the local law firm of Zack Kosnitzky.

Zack Kosnitzky, which boosted its stature during the presidential election recount, will give Boies’ law firm an additional 25 lawyers with litigation and transaction expertise. It also gives Boies a platform to build its business in Florida and Latin America. The deal is expected to be completed on April 1.

Nationally, Boies Schiller & Flexner will have 160 lawyers and has been involved in such high-profile matters as Al Gore’s fight for the presidency, the federal government’s lawsuit against Microsoft, Napster’s battle to stay in business, and the current defense of Andrew Fastow, Enron’s former chief financial officer.

Oct. 11 — Freshly laid concrete is drying outside Bristol Bank President Pete Dunbar’s office, while he irons out contracts on data processing systems, orders stock certificates and interviews senior lenders in anticipation of the Coral Gables bank’s opening.

Across the county line, in Cooper City, newly hired Horizon Bank employees are booking mortgages out of cramped, unadorned temporary space, while President Tom Lunak anxiously awaits the delayed move to the new thrift’s just-completed Pembroke Pines headquarters.

Bristol and Horizon are just two of more than a dozen new banks and thrifts sprouting up in Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe counties, as Florida rides the crest of a wave of new banks sweeping the nation.

Aug. 15–Key Largo is a great place to get conch fritters, snorkel a coral reef or get wasted away again in Margaritaville.

But at mile marker 99.5 people engage in an activity that isn’t typically associated with the laid-back life of the Conch Republic.

They’re bankers. And TIB Bank of the Keys remains steadfastly independent after 30 years, and dominates Monroe County by focusing on the everyday needs of island businesses and residents.

“The only sustainable advantage a bank can have is service,” says Ed Lett, chairman of the institution originally known as The Islamorada Bank. “If you have a service advantage, people will flock to you.”

Ethics Commission Reverses Decision

A March 2004 opinion issued by the Miami-Dade County Ethics Commission required plan expediters–which act as builder representatives at local building departments to ensure faster plan approval and permit issuance–to register as lobbyists.

After several meetings with key county staff and among themselves, BASF members and staff prepared a letter with additional information about their job functions for the Ethics Commission to reconsider. In August, BASF presented its new information and report to the full commission. After deliberation, the commission issued a four-page opinion rescinding its earlier position, so that plan expediters will no longer be considered lobbyists and will not be required to register as lobbyists because they do not affect legislation.
