If you didn’t already know it, Port St. Lucie is a pretty good place to live.
The city keeps racking up awards for being a great place to work, own a home or retire.

It’s been a long time coming, but the Ardie R. Copas State Veterans’ Nursing Home has finally opened. In Home Sweet Home, beginning on Page 28, you’ll meet the nursing center’s first resident, 95-year-old decorated World War II veteran Calvin Heathman.
In Making a Difference [Page 16], writer Mary Ann Koenig shares news of a Port St. Lucie-based e-commerce company that is producing an array of plastic-free customer products. The business started out modestly in the home of Sarah Cieslinski and her fiancé, JJ Follano, in 2018, but they soon had to move the operation to a warehouse. Sounds like they are on the road to success.
Speaking of which, we wish you much prosperity and success in the new year.
