IRSC launches employer residency program
Dr. Calvin Williams is IRSC’s director of career and transfer services.
Indian River State College's  Career and Transfer Services has launched a new opportunity for area employers to connect with IRSC students. The IRSC Employer Residency Program provides a professional development platform in which students gain real-time feedback from business and community leaders as they build interviewing, networking and job search skills. At the same time, the program connects local employers with some of the most qualified and promising employees in the region — soon-to-be IRSC graduates.
 
“The Employee Residency Program connects employers and students in an experience that readies our students to walk into a job interview with a sharp resume and a clear understanding of the company and the industry.” shares Dr. Calvin Williams, IRSC Director of Career and Transfer Services.
 
Employers involved with the IRSC Employer Residency Program participate in informational meetings in which students can ask questions about the company and specific jobs within the organization and their industry. Students gain valuable insight from employers, including ways to improve their employment prospects and strategies to achieve long-term career goals. The regularly scheduled sessions are actively promoted to IRSC students and take place in-person or through virtual platforms such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams.
 
The program offers additional opportunities for area business. Among them are increased visibility with IRSC students, faculty and staff; maintaining an on-campus presence; career and professional development; mentoring opportunities; and the chance to give back and help student development for future workforce needs.
 
“The heart of this program is providing our students valuable one-on-one interaction with local employers,” states Williams. “This is a great opportunity for IRSC to connect our students with the people and opportunities that can help them build their futures.”
 
Organizations interested in learning more about the IRSC Employer in Residence Program can contact Dr. Calvin Williams in Career and Transfer Services by email at [email protected]rsc.edu or by phone at 772.462.7467.

Amendment 5: Increased Portability Period
ST. LUCIE COUNTY – “On the November 3rd General Election ballot voters will have the option to vote on Amendment 5, also known as the Florida Extend "Save Our Homes" Portability Period Amendment, which would extend the transfer of the "Save Our Homes" benefit by one additional year,” stated Michelle Franklin, Saint Lucie County Property Appraiser.

Amendment 5 officially reads: CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT ARTICLE VII, SECTION 4, ARTICLE XII LIMITATIONS ON HOMESTEAD PROPERTY TAX ASSESSMENTS; INCREASED PORTABILITY PERIOD TO TRANSFER ACCRUED BENEFIT.

If approved, the amendment to the State Constitution would take effect on January 1, 2021. The amendment would increase, from two years to three years, the period of time during which accrued Save-Our-Homes benefits may be transferred from a prior homestead to a new homestead.

“The language on amendments can be confusing,” added Franklin. “A ‘yes’ vote supports extending the transfer period on homestead property. A ‘no’ vote opposes extending the transfer period.”

It is important to understand the language to make an informed decision. If voters have questions about how Amendment 5 could potentially affect benefits on property, they are encouraged to visit the Saint Lucie County Property Appraiser’s website at paslc.org.

Each October the City of Port St. Lucie kicks off the fall season with our annual Oktoberfest and Fall Fun Fest events that bring thousands of guests to the MIDFLORIDA Event Center at 9221 SE Event Center Pl., Port St. Lucie, FL 34952. This year you can expect a few changes as we continue to adhere to CDC social distancing guidelines.

Sunrise Rotary Club of Vero Beach donated funds for water purification filters
Earlier this year, the Sunrise Rotary Club of Vero Beach donated funds for BioSand water purification filters to an impoverished area of  Domincan Republic near Puerto Plata. Each of these filters provides 10 people 47 liters of drinkable water per hour. The filters last over 10 years and are easy to use and maintain. They transform dirty water into clean drinkable water.

Martin Lewis, co-chair of the World Community Service Committee, came up with the idea of the Sunrise Rotary Club providing dollar for dollar matching funds for any pledged BioSand filter money. Enough money was collected and sent to the Dominican Republic to purchase 106 bio sand water filters providing clean drinking water to over 1,000 people.
 
If you are interested in helping with International Water projects like this one or 100's of local community service projects, visit a local Rotary club. There are five in Indian River County.

Sunrise Rotary Club meets every Wednesday at 7 a.m. at the Riverhouse, Vero Beach Rotary Club meets every Thursday at Noon at the Vero Beach Yacht Club, Oceanside Rotary Club meets every Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. also at Riverhouse, Orchid Island club meets every Wednesday at noon at the Vero Beach Country Club, and the Sebastian Rotary Club meets every Thursday at noon at Capt. Butchers. (some clubs now meeting via zoom)
