Bank of America Charitable Foundation grants IRSC $20,000 in support of area small businesses
FORT PIERCE — The Indian River State College Foundation is pleased to announce that it has received a grant of $20,000 from the Bank of America Charitable Foundation to bolster professional consulting for emerging and growth businesses through the Florida Small Business Development Center (FSBDC) at Indian River State College (IRSC). The funding will be used to provide additional hours to Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) Certified Business Consultants who help eligible businesses — without cost — to certify as Minority-, Women- and Veteran-owned businesses, and gain access to government contracts.

“Small businesses are the cornerstone of this nation, and their success has never been more important as we work toward economic recovery,” says Doug Sherman, Treasure Coast market president for Bank of America. “COVID-19 has been a defining moment for the Treasure Coast, and our partnership with the IRSC will help local entrepreneurs grow from this experience to become more resilient than ever.”

Since 2016, the FSBDC at IRSC PTAC Certified Consultants have helped their government contracting clients gain access to more than $175 million in government contracts. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the FSBDC at IRSC has additionally provided support and education to businesses needing government assistance through the form of CARES Act grants and other small business government grants, walking them through the required steps to successfully secure funding to remain open during the worldwide pandemic.

“We are grateful for the generous support of Bank of America,” remarks Ann Decker, executive director of the IRSC Foundation. “It is because of their commitment to small and emerging businesses that the FSBDC at IRSC can deliver more of the services that are especially critical at this time.”

Gus Miller to show miniatures at Center for Spiritual Care
Gustaf Miller will show new small paintings and collages at the Center for Spiritual Care in Vero Beach Dec. 4-31 in a show entitled “Angular Explorations.”

“Most works in the exhibition will be in the 8x10” range,” Miller says.  “They’ll be executed in acrylic collage and watercolors, too.” He calls the challenge of putting together a show composed entirely of small works an “exploratory endeavor.”

Miller is well known not only for his large-scale paintings but his sculptures constructed of both wood and metal.  The humor inherent in his work softens his focus on angular shapes and forms.
Miller spent his childhood in Nyack, New York. He received a BFA and MFA from Syracuse University, and pursued post graduate work in Rome, Italy. Miller has exhibited his work in fine art galleries and museums across the east coast. His work is currently in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA; Vero Beach Museum, FL; Addison Gallery of American Art, Andover, MA; Margulies Collection, Miami, FL; Graham Gund Collection, Cambridge, MA; and the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Garden, Lincoln, MA.  

The Center is located at 1550 24th St., two blocks north of the Main Public Library. www.centerforspiritualcare.org. Call for more information 772-567-1233.

CareerSource Research Coast, CareerSource Palm Beach County, and CareerSource Broward will host the Healthcare & Life Sciences Virtual Career Fair on Wednesday, Oct. 21, 2020, from 9a.m. to 1p.m.

Crosstown Parkway Bridge has won yet another award
PORT ST. LUCIE – The Design Build Institute of America (DBIA) awarded the Crosstown Parkway Extension the 2020 Project of the Year Award for the Florida Region in the Transportation-Structures category. This will be the fourth award the project has received, placing Crosstown in the running for national awards and honors. To date, Crosstown has also received the American Association of Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Most Value Added Proposal Award for Pre-Construction Engineering $100 million or greater; Florida Transportation Builders Association (FTBA) Florida’s Best in Construction Local Agency Program (LAP) Award and Engineering News Record (ENR) – Southeast Region Highway / Bridge Best Project Award.

"The collaboration between the design team, construction team, city of Port St. Lucie Public Works employees, stakeholders, and the public was exemplary and helped play a role in the success of this project," said Public Works Director Bob Sweeney. "We are very proud to have been part of this team - there are so many others who played crucial roles. This award recognizes the delivery of all aspects of the complex design, construction and operation of this public facility."
The DBIA award is the seventh Annual Design Build Award honoring the nation’s best design build projects and leaders. The project and team were evaluated based on excellence in design, team performance, project safety and the process and practices used throughout the project. Members of the DBIA collaborate and innovate to deliver some of America’s most successful projects and include architectural engineers and construction professionals as well as academics, students and project owners.

The Crosstown Parkway Extension provides a new bridge crossing over the North Fork of the St. Lucie River, connecting the existing Crosstown Parkway from Manth Lane to U.S.-1. The corridor included 1.5 miles of roadway improvements and a 4,032-foot-long bridge, a long-awaited third river crossing and a critical hurricane evacuation route. The bridge traverses a highly environmentally sensitive area, which required minimization of wetland impacts and protection of the Savannas Preserve State Park. Unique features of the project include: project bid coming in $13 million below the estimate; a dedicated public outreach program; opening the road 27 months after the start of construction; facilitating a job fair; and coordinating a Community Grand Opening Celebration.

The $91.5 million Crosstown Parkway Extension Project was the largest LAP-funded project ever constructed in Florida and was completed under budget. The project was administered similar to a full Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) on-system project but was managed by the City of Port St. Lucie through a LAP agreement with the FDOT. The City, FDOT and all project team members are recognized for working well together to provide a signature bridge for the City of Port St. Lucie and residents.
