Senior center where rape reported installs jams on doors, windows

After a disturbing report of a resident at an assisted living center being sexually assaulted, News4Jax has learned that the facility has installed jams on windows and doors, preventing residents of first-floor rooms from opening them more than a few inches.

Vernon Bender is a 78-year-old veteran who lives in one of the rooms, and got so concerned he called his son.

“Saturday they came over here and closed these doors and put these boards in there. They are screwed in there, the fern strip, which means I can’t open this door to get out,” Bender said.

Bender has only lived at Brookdale Atrium Way for a few months. He said one of the reasons he chose the facility was the unit’s floor plan and patio on the ground level.

“I use it all the time. That’s my car parked right there. To get to my car now, I have to go all the way down to the end of the building and all the way back,” Bender said.

It’s not just the sliding glass door being closed off that has him upset.

“All these windows here have boards like this, screwed in. I can’t open this window. If I tried it, it only goes so far. That’s it. I consider this a fire exit,” said Bender.

Fire is the biggest concern for him.

“I have four exits to this apartment, three of them are blocked,” Bender said.

Bender’s son, Michael, called News4Jax after his dad notified him about the windows and doors.

“I am very concerned. In fact,  I have been talking with him, since seeing your article, about finding a new place for him to live,” Michael Bender said. “In my mind, if something happens here he has no way of getting out. He only has the front door, and if there is a fire in the hall, then he is stuck and there is nowhere else he can go. And the windows, he can’t even open those to crawl out.”

Instead of jams, both father and son have other suggestions to remedy the situation.

“A front gate, swipe in, swipe out. Cameras on all the doors that are around the building,” Michael Bender said.

News4Jax reached out to the managers at Brookdale who sent us the following statement;

We have taken additional actions to increase security options around the community. In conjunction with Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) and the Fire Department, we installed sliding glass door locks on first floor apartments. We direct you to the fire officials for additional questions regarding fire code.”

News4Jax also reached out to the Jacksonville Fire Rescue’s Fire Prevention Unit and we are waiting to hear back from them.

Breaking Ground in Eldon, MO | Quaker Windows & Doors

Breaking Ground in Eldon, MO | Quaker Windows & Doors

It may have been a cold and rainy morning, but that didn’t stop more than 100 people from gathering in a open field in Eldon, MO to break ground on Quaker Windows & Doors newest plant location.

Quaker CEO  Kevin Blansett & QWP board members Judy Stone, Carlotta Kaesik, Mary Knoll, and Pam Knoll were joined by Missouri Governor Mike Parson, MO Dept. of Economic Development Director Rob Dixon, Eldon Mayor Larry Henderson, and Ameren Missouri President Mike Moehn as they turned over the official first shovels of dirt.

They were joined by  Quaker employees, 3rd generation members of the Knoll Family (QWP’s owners), and many members of the Eldon Community as excitement filled the air about the future of Quaker as part of the Eldon community.

“It is such an honor to be here and be part of this community. We look forward to the growth, not only today, but over the next ten years,” Quaker CEO, Kevin Blansett.

After the official ground breaking ceremony, a reception and press conference were held at a local venue in Eldon, Warehouse 55. During this event more details and acknowledgments of the project and future ahead were given.  Matt Davis, Superintendent of Eldon Public Schools spoke in depth about the future job training and educational opportunities this would bring to their community.

Through Quaker and the Eldon School district, students of today would be taught and mentored to have successful careers right  in their hometown after graduation. Davis also told a heart wrenching story of a local student,  sharing with the audience how Quaker coming to Eldon was not only going to change the physical landscape of the community, but the financial stability of their students and population for generations to come.

“We could tell this was a company that values it’s employees. We knew Quaker was the company that could change the direction of our community for a generation. ” Superintendent Matt Davis.

Missouri Governor Parson continued the discussion with a strong push for workforce development and infrastructure in Missouri. As the founder of the BuyMissouri program, the Governor noted that more than 80% of the new jobs in Missouri come from the existing businesses in Missouri. He spoke in depth about how this project was really the best combination of various entities coming together to provide a better future for the students and future workers in Missouri.

“When I think of Quaker and workforce development, and the superintendent that is here today to give our kids the opportunity to work for a company like this in Miller County, and in Eldon, Missouri, is a huge opportunity for those next generations, and that for me is what it is all about,” Governor Mike Parson.

Rounding out the conference was Quaker CEO Kevin Blansett, who described the excitement that Quaker felt with this new opportunity to grow and continue serving the needs of Quaker’s customers, in Eldon, stating, “We are excited about where we are going, not only in Freeburg, but also in Eldon.”

Quaker is considered the fastest growing window and door manufacturers in the country and in 2019 will celebrate their 70th year in business. With that said, this new location will give Quaker plenty of space to grow for the future, as well as, providing workforce development and financial boosts for Eldon and surrounding communities.
