Kim Capen

New beginnings

This spring, I decided to work for one of the best magazine publishers on the Treasure Coast. Home is now the Indian River Media Group headed up by Gregory Enns and his team. This magazine group has the best magazines, and I’m excited to become part of it as the publisher of Port St. Lucie Magazine.

I am also excited to work in an area I’ve called home for 23 years. Some readers might know me from my work as an ad director and publisher with other area magazines. Nothing amazes me more than to watch how fast this area is growing and then...

Sporting news

When its lease was up in Davenport, the Florida Sports Hall of Fame scrambled to find a new home for its memorabilia. The goal was to find somewhere that was easily accessible to Floridians while also being able to house its 269 members and its mementos and sports ...

Chris Flexen Jr. was a pitcher for the St. Lucie Mets

Good sports

Chris Flexen Sr. relishes his role as father of a Major League Baseball player.

A career plumber in the Bay Area of California, he and his wife, Desiree, moved to Port St. Lucie following their only child.

He also relishes his role in outdoor operations at the PGA Club in Port St. Lucie, where he is the first person a golfer sees when pulling up to the club and the last one seen as a golfer pulls away from one of the club’s three championship courses...

Notable honors and awards

The city is celebrating its 60th anniversary and a new collection of awards and honors. Be sure to check again in the fall when the city will have even more to talk about.

Sylvia Harris

The POLICE OFFICER

When Sylvia Harris was looking for a possible career change in the early 1990s, she never expected to be so drawn to law enforcement. Initially, Harris was looking to work at the jail or detention center as a correctional officer. But after some research, she figured it was not for her.

“I went on a ride-along with an officer named Carl Toppin, a black officer with PSLPD,” Harris said. “Right away I knew, ‘I could do this, and I will do this...’ ”

Michael Harrison

The SHOWMAN

Michael Harrison’s first performance was playing baby Jesus in a church play. Only a month old, he was cast in the role without even an audition. Decades later, he played opposite the title role in Jesus Christ Superstar as a glittery King Herod, his favorite part.

In between then and now, most of the drama in his life has been off the stage...

Angel St-Jacques

The CIRCUS COACH

When Mylene St-Jacques was a child in Canada, she dreamed of growing up to marry a man who spoke English and to live among palm trees, the only tree she could draw well. It was an unlikely future for a little girl in Quebec, where French is the official language. And with temperatures dipping to -30 F, there’s also nary a palm tree in sight...

Weeding out the pain

In Port St. Lucie, the grass and weed discussed on the golf course or at the office usually pertains to yards. Increasingly, however, people are talking about medical marijuana and the growing number of dispensaries that sell it.

Port St. Lucie voters helped fellow Floridians overwhelmingly approve Amendment 2 in 2016, expanding access to full-strength marijuana for medicinal use. State-certified doctors who may prescribe medical marijuana followed soon after, along with...

Imagine, created by artist Emma Anna

Our Town

Imagine, created by artist Emma Anna and unveiled in April on the 60th anniversary of the city, sits in front of the fountain at Port St. Lucie Botanical Gardens. The artist designed the interactive sculpture so people could pose as the missing letter I, saying “the capacity to imagine is an inherently human characteristic shared by all, and its power inspires us to ...
