Dozens of dignitaries gathered along Interstate 95 in Fort Pierce on Feb. 15 to add their signatures to a cornerstone for the Interstate Commerce Center (ICC).

Currently under construction at 3800 Crossroads Parkway in the Crossroads Park of Commerce, the 207,458-square-foot Class-A industrial building has 1,300 feet of clear I-95 frontage and is located in St. Lucie County at the northernmost point where I-95 and Florida’s Turnpike intersect.

The facility is being developed on 12.7 acres by JBL Development and will be managed by JBL Asset Management. Itasca Construction Partners is the general contractor. Designed for mid-size users with space requirements from 20,000 to 200,000 square feet, the facility will be ready for occupancy this spring.

ICC is located within one mile of both Exit 129 on I-95 and Exit 152 on the turnpike.  The facility’s location provides for access to Orlando, Fort Myers and Miami within two hours.  When complete, the facility will have 32-foot interior clear heights, a 60-foot speed bay, 60 dock-high loading bays, and several at-grade ramps.  Separate parking areas and entrances for employees will prioritize safety and visitor experience with a total of 302 parking spaces on site.

“There is currently quite a bit of product being developed for large users, so we are very excited to be able to offer attractive Class-A facilities for mid-size users with I-95 frontage and excellent access to both the interstate and Florida’s Turnpike,” said Michael Rem with JBL Development. “These distinctive and desirable qualities are driving interest from efficiency-minded businesses seeking brand exposure and quick access to Florida’s most densely populated hubs.”

“JBL’s choice of Fort Pierce as the home for this excellent facility was a wise one,” said Fort Pierce Mayor Linda Hudson. “Not only is the Interstate Commerce Center located at the northernmost point where the turnpike and I-95 come together, there is easy access to the Treasure Coast International Airport, the Port of Fort Pierce, the Florida East Coast railroad, our safe Fort Pierce Inlet connecting the Indian River Lagoon to the Atlantic Ocean, and our pristine uncrowded beaches.”

“Since the inception of this project, JBL Asset Management has engaged with the St. Lucie County community to ensure the end users at the Interstate Commerce Center will not only have first-class space to lease in a great location but also have connections to the community to assist with employment and business services,” said Pete Tesch, president of the Economic Development Council of St. Lucie County. “Our signatures on the building’s cornerstone are tokens of our ongoing commitment to assist the tenants -- future local employers -- who will be joining us here in the Sunrise City.”

“We are pleased to work with JBL and the Economic Development Council of St. Lucie County in taking this top-tier industrial project to market,” said Michael Falk, executive vice president at Colliers. “We anticipate high demand for the facility given its ability to provide for tenants as low as 20,000 square feet with brand new, quality space in Fort Pierce’s booming market with excellent visibility along I-95.”  Leasing inquiries can be directed to Falk at 561.478.6400.

Sheryl Paul retires after 31 years at Helping People Succeed

Sheryl Paul retires after 31 years at Helping People Succeed


Sheryl Paul spent 31 years at Helping People Succeed, teaching countless families how to build meaningful connections with their young children and make the most out of those very important first years. She helped pioneer the BRAIN Program, taught countless hours of Infant Massage and helped new parents have “The Happiest Baby” long before the invention of the beloved Snoo. Some might say, Sheryl is kind of the Baby Whisperer of Martin County.

On Thursday, Sept. 15, Paul retired after more than three decades at the Treasure Coast nonprofit, where she put her distinct imprint on several programs.

Just six weeks after relocating to the Stuart area from Chicago with her husband Elliot and their three children, she started in the Developmental Intervention program of Helping People Succeed, which involved making weekly home visits to families with children from birth to the age of three whom had either diagnosed or at-risk developmental differences.

She remained in that job for eight years and then transitioned into the newly established BRAIN (Building Readiness Among Infants Now) Program, where she remained for 20 years. This program, which is funded through the Children’s Services Council, is available to all parents of newborns in Martin and St. Lucie counties and focuses on early brain development and how parents can give their babies the best possible start in life.

Sheryl said “I had the privilege of doing visits with the same families many times over the years and no two visits were ever the same because no two babies are ever the same. I like to believe that moms and dads took something different away with them each time we met.”

For the last three years, she’s been the sole facilitator of the Wee Talk program, training key staff at local nonprofits such as WIC, Healthy Start of Martin County, Martin County Library System and the other departments at Helping People Succeed on the connection between language and literacy, and the importance of passing that message on to all the families they interact with.

When Sheryl first moved to Martin County, she could never have predicted that that change would lead her to a job that would give her personal fulfillment as well as co-workers who turned into friends and now, 30 years later, feel like family. “My life has been so richly blessed by the work I have gotten to do and the people I have gotten to do it with,” Sheryl says.

Now the proud and doting grandmother to six (almost seven) grandchildren, all of whom live locally, Paul says the time is right to move to the next phase in her life, spending as much time with them as possible.

She says, “My treasured time is time in the car with my grandkids. My family is precious to me and I look forward to being with them. I have had a beautiful journey with Helping People Succeed and I will carry the memories with me as I move on to my next chapter.”

United Way offers training for volunteer reception center in case of emergency

United Way offers training for volunteer reception center in case of emergency 


Nate Bruckner goes over locations and directions with Bernice Keller and Stacy Benezra at a Volunteer Reception Center Training


In the event of a hurricane, United Way operates the Volunteer Reception Center (VRC) after a disaster located at the United Way Center on 14th Avenue, Vero Beach.  

United Way of Indian River County in conjunction with the Indian River County Emergency Management Division will be the liaison in connecting volunteers to individuals needing assistance with hurricane clean-up in Indian River County. The  VRC is set up and staffed to intake and match volunteer skills with unmet needs in the community in the event of a  disaster.  

In order to plan ahead, VRC volunteers are encouraged to attend our 1-day certification training provided by Volunteer  Florida on June 30th at the United Way Center from 9 AM to 4 PM. Registration is required. 

Examples of opportunities:  

  • A request from the Emergency Operations Center may be for volunteers to help victims of a disaster in  need of blue tarps and installation on damaged roofs 
  • Salvation Army may need volunteers to help in their mass-feeding kitchens following a disaster • The American Red Cross may need volunteers to case-manage victims of a hurricane and direct them to  temporary assistance 
  • An elderly person may need volunteers to help clear debris from their yard or flood-soaked carpet  removed from their home 
  • Home-bound victims may need water or food delivered by volunteers 
  • and many, many more opportunities. 

Volunteer Reception Center positions include registration and volunteer intake and interviewing, data collection and entry, safety training, phone bank, runners, greeters, etc.  

The VRC serves to coordinate spontaneous, unaffiliated volunteers to help support the relief effort of ESF#15  (volunteers and donations) under the direction of IRC Emergency Management. Spontaneous volunteers will be assigned duties as needed by the VRC volunteer staff. A spontaneous, unaffiliated volunteer or SUV is a person that has not received current, formal disaster response training from a state organization or agency active in disaster.  

There is a role for anyone who would like to become certified and assist at the Volunteer Reception Center in times of emergency. Volunteers must be 18 years or older. No special skills are necessary. 

To register as a Volunteer Reception Center volunteer, please visit or contact Stacy Benezra at (772)  567-8900, ext. 120 or [email protected].

House of Hope’s 2022 Top Chef Competition

House of Hope’s 2022 Top Chef Competition



(Left to Right) Ed Ciampi, Craig Ahal and Rob Ranieri celebrating the Best Dish award from Top Chef 2019.

Six local people who love food, love to cook, and love the mission of House of Hope will compete on Monday, June 6, for bragging rights to be called the Top Chef of Martin County.

The fourth annual Top Chef competition will be held this year from 7 to 10 p.m. at The District Table and Bar in Stuart. Contenders will learn which protein they’ll be working with a week in advance, but what ingredients are on hand and what the “Special Surprise Ingredient” is for 2022 will be a secret until the competition begins. Some of the ingredients will come straight from House of Hope’s Growing Hope Farm.

During the event, 11 local restaurants will be serving small bites to attendees to stave off their hunger as they watch the chefs prepare their delicious dishes.

“This is a really fun and lively event,” said House of Hope Chief Executive Officer Rob Ranieri. “Our volunteer chefs, none of whom are actually professional chefs, always surprise and impress us with the dishes they prepare.”

The event also has a serious side. House of Hope is seeing an ever-increasing number of Martin County residents who are food insecure and need the services of the organization to feed their families. Funds raised from this fun, food event will go directly to feeding hungry neighbors.

The 2022 competitors are: Donna Forcella, Donna Jenson, Julian Maiucci, Pete Morello, Marybeth Peña, and Joe Tomasiello. Judges will award prizes to the Top Fundraiser and the Best Dish, with the Overall Winner prize going to the chef who excels in a combination of both categories.

Sponsorship support from the following people and organizations is appreciated: Colab Farms, Whiticar Boatworks, Coastal Drive Magazine, The Firefly Group, Florida Power and Light, HBKS Stephen Schramm, Elaine and Jim Matts, McCarthy Summers Law Firm, Rick Carroll Insurance, and the Wong Family Foundation.

Only 200 tickets are available, and tickets from the 2020 event are being honored, so space is limited. To purchase tickets, become a sponsor, or support a favorite chef, go to
