2 former FSP officers found not guilty in 2009 incident


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
Telegraph Staff Writer

A Bradford County jury ac-
quitted two former corrections
officers last week, charged with
battery on an inmate.
That jury also found Rich-
ard J. Kross and Raymond Eric
Williams not guilty on a second
charge of knowingly submitting
inaccurate, incomplete or un-
truthful information.
According to the state, Rich-


ard Kross, who was a sergeant at
Florida State Prison, beat inmate
Darrell Stanberry around 11 a.m.
on April 8,2009, in a stairwell of
the prison's L-wing, while Ray-
mond Williams restrained the
inmate.
Assistant State Attorney Geof-
frey Fleck said the beating was
retaliation for Stanberry exposing
himself to a female corrections
officer earlier that morning.
"He didn't touch her," Fleck
told jurors of Stanberry's actions


against the female officer. "He
didn't attack her. It was disgust-
ing what he did. -It was against
the rules, no excuse. It was aw-
ful."
The inmate's behavior is pun-
ishable by up to 60 days disci-
plinary confinement and the loss
of 90 days gain time.
The prosecutor said the inmate
was eventually punished for the
rules violation by the Depart-
ment of Corrections, but before
that happened, corrections of-


ficers decided to dispense their
own brand of justice.
"He got an institutional beat-
ing for it," said Fleck of the in-
mate. "It was decided by the cor-
rections officers at Florida State
Prison that day, that they were
going to extract their ounce of
flesh ... for Stanberry's miscon-
duct. The thought was he was
getting what he deserved."
The prosecutor asserted that
Kross, while escorting the inmate
back to his cell, pushed Stanberry


down a staircase, then repeatedly
struck the inmate while his co-
defendant, Raymond Williams,
restrained the prisoner, and as
four other officers looked on.
The state's primary evidence
against Kross and Williams was
video taken from a stationary
surveillance camera in the stair-
well.
Fleck said the video showed
Kross hitting Stanberry over and
over while Williams held him.
"They acted together, and they


acted in concert with other offi-
cers who continued (to beat the
inmate) after the beating in L-
wing," he said.
The assistant state attorney
said that after Kross bludgeoned
the inmate in L-wing, he then
took Stanberry to I-wing and to
D-wing, where the inmate re-
ceived more physical abuse from
other prison guards.
"The idea was to teach this

LB's King House has a long history in Union County


The town of Lake Butler was
founded in 1859 when Thomas
A. Bradford purchased 40 acres
of land on the south side of the
lake from the U.S. government.
Near the center of that origi-
nal 40 acres of land is the site
of a beautiful two-story historic
home known as the King House.
The home was named after early
settler and community developer
John Anderson King and his son,
town physician, Dr. Seeber King.
The King family played a signifi-
cant role in the history and devel-
opment of Lake Butler.
Back in 1884, Missouri resi-
dent John Anderson King was
told by his doctor that his daugh-
ter, Georgia, suffered from an
illness that required 'a warmer
climate. As a result, the King
family decided to move from
Missouri to Florida. The King
family, John, his wife Nettle,
and their three children, Geor-
gia, Aura and Seeber, sold their
possessions except for what they
could carry in a trunk and trav-
eled by train to Florida. (A trunk
dated in the late 1800s was dis-
covered in the attic of the King
House several years ago and is
believed to be the trunk the fam-
ily brought to Florida.)
The King family had intended
to relocate to Providence where
they would farm long-staple
Sea Island cotton, the area's
cash crop at the time. The plans
changed, however, when the
family stopped at a large oak tree
that once stood at the intersec-
tion of Main Street (S.R. 100)
and Lake Avenue in downtown
Lake Butler.


As the local townspeople gath-
ered around the buggy to inquire
about the family, John King told
them of his plans in Providence.
The locals suggested to King
that he would be much better off
farming in Lake Butler since the
railroad would soon be located
there.
King took the advice of the
townspeople and settled in Lake
Butler. On April 6, 1885, John
King purchased the city block
that the King House currently sits
on for $500 at an estate auction.


The King House 1898.

At the time, there was a small
one-story, hall-and-parlor style
house on the property. The origi-
nal construction date of the home
is unknown, however, hall-and-
parlor architecture was common
in the South between 1750 and
1890. Most likely, the home was
built sometime between 1859
and 1884. The original one-story
home, which is still part of the
house today, may be the oldest
existing building in Lake Butler.
Another daughter, Esther. \\as
actually born in the dining room


of the original one-story house.
In later years, Esther endowed a
perpetual scholarship for Union
County High School graduates,
a scholarship that has assisted
many young people in the com-
munity in paying for their col-
lege education.
John King never started a cot-
ton farm, but instead took an en-
tirely different route and opened
a pharmacy. King knew little
about pharmaceuticals, but was
a sax\\ businessman. When
licensing la\\s for pharmacists


were enacted years later, King
was grandfathered in and contin-
ued to practice.
By 1896 the King family
had far outgrown the two-room
house and it was remodeled
into the Queen Anne style it re-
sembles today. King's daughter,
Aura, who attended art school at
Stetson for a year, designed the
addition with a local craftsman
named D.F. McDonald perform-
ing the work.
Before construction was com-
plete, however, a category three
hurricane struck Lake Butler on
Sept. 29, 1896. According to
storm records, the hurricane had
maximum wind speeds of 121
mph. The storm shifted the King
House and some of the damage
is still evident in the home's din-
ing room and upstairs sleeping
porch.
To ensure that another storm
would not damage the home,
King purposefully overbuilt the
house with beams that were larg-
er than necessary and included
additional reinforcements. King
often said, "the next storm mjght
roll this house over, but it will
not tear it up."
John King played a major role
in the early development of Lake
Butler. He was a devout man
who would give business lots to
anyone who promised to build
a brick building and never sell
whiskey. In 1893, the same year
the town was incorporated, King
built Lake Butler's first brick
building, known as the John A.
King building.
King was the first person in
Union County to serve iced


drinks at his place of business.
He had ice shipped to Lake Butler
by train and stored it year round
in a building with thick walls that
were insulated with straw. King
also founded Lake Butler's first
Sunday school before a church
ever existed.
In 1910, John King died at the
age of 62. A large monument
marks his grave at Dekle Cem-
etery in Lake Butler. Upon his
death, Dr. George Robert See-
ber King inherited the residence.
Dr. King received his medical
degree in 1901 from the School
of Physicians and Surgeons in
Baltimore, Md. King served as
Lake Butler's town doctor for
many years, and was known as
the horse-and-buggy doctor who
made house calls.
Eventually Dr. King retired his
horse and buggy and became the
first person in Union County to
purchase an automobile. Accord-
ing to Lake Butler historians, an-
other man learned of the automo-
bile purchase and bought his own
second-hand automobile, having
it rushed to Lake Butler so he
could become the first person to
possess an automobile in Union
County.
In 1903, Dr. King married Ag-
nes V. Wilson, but the couple
never had any children. In 1922,
Agnes was struck by a train on
the tracks by their home. Fam-
ily legend holds that Agnes was
so frightened by the oncoming
train that she ran down the tracks
to get away from it, rather than
stepping' off to the side. She

nasty inmate a lesson," Fleck
said.
Fleck also said an early morn-
ing power outage at the prison
played a role in the beatings by
leading :corrections officers to
bAlieve (hyt surveillance cameras
had been disabled.
"These officers believed that
those cameras weren't working,"
he said, "and that they had pri-
vacy in that stairwell, to do to
Stanberry what they pleased."
But Kross's attorney, Gloria
W. Fletcher, argued that the in-
mate tumbled down the L-wing
stairwell because he was attempt-
ing to break loose from Kross to
avoid being strip-searched.
"We know now," she told ju-
rors, "that he had contraband on
him, that during the course of the
altercation, tobacco, which he is
not allowed to have, falls some-
where out of his uniform."
She also said that Kross's use
of force on the inmate was part of
an attempt to handcuff the pris-
oner while Stanberry was resist-
ing.
"This officer used the level of
force that he was taught," she
said.
The defense lawyer added that
while in Kross's custody, the
inmate had no outward signs of
abuse.
"That inmate comes out of L-


dorm with no bleeding, no bruis-
ing, no swelling," she said.
She added that based on the
testimony of corrections person-
nel, Stanberry 's injuries occurred
in D-wing.
"Whatever happened to Stan-
berry, happened in D-wing," she
said. Noting that her client was
nowhere near lhe.inrrfate when
Stanberry-was i-4i-wirig? -
And Fletcher, scoffed at the
state's assertion that corrections
officers thought the power outage
disabled surveillance cameras.
"This is a corrections facility,"
she told the jury. "Everybody
knows, just like at a hospital, that
you've got to have backup power
sources. The officers knew that
... this misnomer that people
didn't think the camera worked,
simply doesn't make sense ...
they knew the lights were on in
the stairwell. They knew the
cameras were working."
After the verdict, Fletcher said

Gibson and

Hayden
say, "Happy
Thanks-
giving!"


Department of Corrections in-
spectors charged her client based
on a flawed investigation.
"DOC rushed to judgment in-
stead of carefully dissecting the
evidence like we did," she said.

languished several weeks before
passing away due to her injuries.
Following the death of his
wife, Dr. King's sisters asked
family friend Jewel Coleman and
her husband George Coleman, to
move into the King House as a
caretakers.
Dr. King died from liver can-
cer in 1941 at the age of 63. He
was a well-respected man who
was loved and regarded as fam-
ily by many of his patients. Many
mothers named their children
after him. His wake and funeral
were conducted in the parlor of
the house. Some of Dr. King's
medical equipment and ledgers
are still in the King House to-
day.
In his will, Dr. King left the
King House to Jewel Coleman.
The Colemans lived in the house
the rest of their lives., Around


1945, Jewel divided the house
into three apartments, one up-
stairs and two downstairs, choos-
ing to live out her remaining
years in one of the downstairs
apartments.To this day, many of
the elderly in the community of-
ten refer to the house as the Cole-
man House.
Originally, the kitchen was at-
tached to the house by a hallway
to prevent a kitchen fire from
spreading throughout the home.
The kitchen was separated from
the house and moved across
the street. The removed kitchen
was remodeled into a residential
dwelling. Jewel's daughter, Anne
Dekle, who grew up in the King
House, moved into the small
home with her husband and three
children. That home still exists
today on the corner of Cleveland
and Georgia streets.
Jewel Coleman passed away
in 1985.. After her death, Anne
Dekle inherited the King House.

Community
support makes
scholarship
bowl a success
Last month, the annual Lake
Butler FFA Lori Nicole Ander-
son .Memorial Bowling Tour-
nament was held at Lake City
Bowl. (See last's week's paper
for bowling sponsors.)
As with each year, the com-


munity stepped up and made
the tournament a tremendous
success. Funds from this tour-
nament are used to support 'the
L'ori Nicole Anderson Memorial
Scholarship Fund.
Because of continued sup-
port from the Anderson family
and the community, an eligible
UCHS graduate and FFA mem-
ber receives this scholarship ev-
ery year.
This year's tournament was
not lacking in competition or


fun. The top bowling team was
the Palmer family, which includ-
ed team members Corey Palmer,
Vicki Palmer, Tim Palmer and
Beth Palmer. Tim and Vicki:
were also the top male and fe-
male bowlers of the tournament.
The second-place winning
team included David Harris,
Tom Williams, Caleb Williams
and Clint Williams. The third-
place team consisted of Cindy
Maddox, Jordon Reynolds, Tana
Reynolds and Jim Godwin.

Community asked for input to help Farm-City event grow


SBY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
It was an event that will
hopefully bring back an annual
Farm-City celebration, but the
event could become so much
more, a member of the
Bradford County Extension


Office said.
The extension office hosted
a Farm-City luncheon Nov. 16
at the Bradford County
Fairgrounds. Jeb Smith, a fifth-
geneiation farmer from
Hastings, was the keynote
speaker, but prior to his


speech, extension agent Jim
DeValerio talked of the
importance of community
invovlement as an annual
Farm-City celebration
establishes a foothold and
develops in Bradford County.
DeValerio said it was


stealing a movie cliche, but the
words "what" and "if," though
small by themselves, are
"powerful" when put together.
"I think in these days of
trying times, 'what if' can
really mean a lot," he said. "I
think that as community


leaders, we can have a
tremendous impact if we say
'what if,' and we try to get a
vision and steer our
community to where we would
like it to be, so that we have a
next generation that is healthy,
strong and in a position where

they can have control over
their fate."
Perhaps groups of third- or
fifth-grade students will be
bussed to annual Farm-City
events in the future, being
exposed to educational
programs, DeValerio said.
Those programs, in turn, he
said, could be followed by
events that would help the
country's agri-industry.
"Nationwide, regionally and
statewide, there are a lot of
food programs that are Out
there that do things like give
fresh produce to the school
systems, fresh produce to our
local restaurants," DeValerio
said. "Myabe our production
system can go to coastal areas
or the high-density areas.
"Whatever that vision is (for
Bradford County), we would
really like to embrace that and
strengthen that in our
community. The 'what if' part,
it really needs to come from
us."
DeValerio cited Vidalia
onions and roses as a couple of
examples. Onions and roses
may not seem to have much in
common, but they are the basis
of industries that support a
group of Georgia counties and
the town of Tyler in Texas.
"What can we do? I don't
know," DeValerio said. "Is it
'Collard Green Capital?' I
don't know. I know we have a
lot to offer in our soils here.
We have some advantages here
we can capitalize on. We need
to put our heads together and
get some economic
development in there, and
make it strong for our agri-
base."
Community support played
such a large role in making this
year's Farm-City luncheon a
reality. Sponsors and partners
included the Bradford Soil and
Water Conservation District,
the Kiwanis Club of Starke,
Bradford County Farm Bureau,
the Bradford board of county
commissioners, Windows by
Lisa, Norman's Produce, Gold
Key, Barry Whitehead,
Bradford County Master
Gardeners and the Bradford
County 4-H program.
DeValerio urged others to
get involved.
"Please know that you're
welcome to get in on this
cause," he told the crowd.
"Let's grow this to a larger
event and into one that benefits
our community."
That, in essence, sums up
what Farm-City is all about:
establishing a relationship
between those who work in
agriculture and those who
don't. During his speech,
Smith said too many people
are unfamiliar with what
farming is all about. As a
result, farmers sometimes have
a bad image.
"Instead of farmers being the
original environmentalists and
stewards of the land, they are
being portrayed as polluters
and money-hungry capitalists,"
Smith said. "The average
person has now developed a
skewed perception of the U.S.
grower and of agriculture."
Rather than the "overall-
wearing, incompetent,
tobacco-chewing illiterates"
many people may envision,
farmers are actually college-
educated, technologically
advanced and innovative
businessmen, though the
modern farmer may still don
the occasional overalls, Smith
said.
Yet despite such a widely
held dipiction that is simply
not true, people do seem to
have a trust in farmers,
believing they are honorable
and trustworthy, Smith said.
The facts are, not many
people" have met farmers and
the number of farmers has
decreased greatly.
"I have actually met people
who have admitted they have
never met a true dyed-in-the-
wool farmer," Smith said,
adding, "Less than 2 percent of
the U.S. population lives and

Gobbles aside, Bradford couple enjoys raising turkeys


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional 'NewilSports Editor
This Thanksgiving, when
Sam Williams sits down to
dine with her husband, Jerry,
and family, one thing she will
be thankful for is the fact that
she no longer has to hear 40-
plus turkeys gobbling in
unison.
.('ognito Farm, which is
o\yned by Williams and her
husband, is a little quieter due
to a depletion in the numbers
of turkeys, but five reniin to
hopefully repopulate the farm
prior to next Thanksgiving.
The couple have completed
their third year of raising
turkeys, and Williams said she
thinks they have found the
right heritage breed for them-
midget whites.
One thing about turkeys,
though, is they tend to all
gobble together, as if on cue,
in reaction to any sudden noise
they don't understand.
"I'm not going to miss the
group gobble-gobble,"
Williams said four days prior
to harvesting the birds. "I am
so not going to miss that part
of it."
She's happy, though, with
the turkeys after raising a
couple of different breeds,
beginning with a handful of
froad-breasted whites-the
typical, large-breasted bird
people eat every Thanksgiving.
: "They were OK," Williams
said, "but near the end. when
they get really big, they tend to
die because their whole
Systems grow way too fast. It
iwas really disappointing to
faise them out and then have
them have a heart attack on me
three days before
Thanksgiving."
SWilliams tried her hands at
raising Naragansert turkeys


next, but the birds proved to be
wanderers. She and her
husband would have to go out
every day and collect the birds,
which proved to be hard to
spot.
"They're a brown and black
turkey, so they blend in well,"
Williams said. "At the time,
we had a white pekin duck that
was the only waterfowl here.
She was in with the turkeys.
She even let a tom mate with
her. She'd .go wherever the
turkeys went, so all I had to do
was look for the white duck
when I was trying to find my
Naragansetts.
"That got to be a real pain in
the neck."
Williams said she was close
to giving up on raising turkeys,
but when she discovered the
midget whites, she decided to
give them a try. They don't
leave home like the
Naragansetts, and they are
very friendly

"They really like people,"
Williams said. "You have to
come out and visit them at
least twice a day just so they
know you still like them."
There are several differences
between the midget whites and
the broad-breasted whites. A
broad-breasted white can dress
out to 34. pound.,, which is a
50.-piund. lic-meighi bird,
Williams said. Such a large
bird was hard to handle, she
said.
The midget whites dress out
anywhere from 8 to 16 pounds.
"For smaller families, it's a
perfect bird," Williams said.
"They're different from the
industry birds in that it takes
seven months for these guys to
get tasty and big-as big as
they're going to be. It takes


about three, three-and-a-hall
months for the broad-breasted
whites that Butterball serves
up.
"Also, these guys can mate
naturally and make more,
which is what makes them a
heritage bird, whereas broad-
breasted whites have to rely on
artificial insemination."
When it comes to taste,
Williams said the midget white
breed has topped several taste
tests, which is one of the
reasons w hy she chose it.
"This is supposed to be the
very best tasting heritage bird
on the planet," she said, adding
that she would find out come
Thanksgiving.
The Williams family will not
be the only ones enjoying one


of the turkeys this
Thanksgiving. Cognito Farm
sold 40 of the turkeys within a
22-hour period in July after e-
mails \were sent to contacts and
an announcement posted on the
farm Web site-
wwv .cog n ilolarmn .comn.
"We continue to get calls
and e-mails, especially as ve
get closer to Thanksgiving,"
Williams said.
Of course, in order to enjoy


the turkeys, they must be
killed. The deed was done, this
past Monday in preparation for.
customers picking up their-
turkeys on Monday, Tuesday
or Wednesday.
Most people probably
envision the farmer with the
axe, preparing to chop the::
turkey's head off, but that Ie

works on the farm now. This
dramatic, considering in the
1920s, that number was nearly
nine out of 10.
"It is more alarming so close
to home.. In 1971, there were
372 growers in the Putnam, St.
Johns and Fiagler County
growing area. Today, there are
less than 40."
SSmith said young-peopli
who grow up on farms are not
staying on the farm because
they have witnessed the
"volatility of the industry,
increasing regulation, a myriad
of taxes, the stress their parents
and predecessors endured, and
the persistence of many
parents who have argued (for
their children) to find jobs.
away from their heritage."
Community-Supported
Agriculture programs are a
way for farmers to remain
viable in today's world and
enter into a relationship with
those who are unfamiliar with
farming, Smith said. CSAs are
contractual agreements
between a grower and a
number of members. Members
pay an annual fee. In return, a
farmer supplies them with a
share of what is harvested
during the growing season.
"This is a mutually
beneficial arrangement that
ensures the community
member of the freshest
sustainable produce and
provides viable support and
necessary profit for the
farmer," Smith said.

No run-off in
special
election!
Dear Editor:
I am a Bradford County citi-
zen of more than 50 years. I
don't usually express my opin-
ion in a public format, however
this is a time I feel I need to
express my concern for the up-
coming District I school board
seat (special) election.
Our ancestors fought for dis-
trict zoning to be fair and the
minority voters to have a chance
to elect a candidate that is con-
cerned with all of the children of
District 1.


Smith is involved in a CSA,
providing members a three-
quarter bushel box of
vegetables and fruit once a
week for 20 weeks.
"We endeavor to provide a
minimum of 10 different
vegetables per box, per
delivery," Smith said.
Smith and his family have
watched how members have
become excited about
vegetables and fruit. In some
cases, people have never seen
or eaten a particular vegetable,
or have even been aware of
where the food they were
eating before came from, or
how it was produced. Smith
encourages his CSA members
to visit his farm at least once
during the growing season.
CSAs are not a one-size-fits-
all arrangement, Smith said. A
CSA can consist of a part-time
or full-time farmer, or 1,000
acres -or simply a backyard
garden. Smith heard of one
CSA in Europe that provides
crops to 40,000 members.
"Our goal, this year is 75
members," said Smith, vho
has 8 acres devoted to his
CSA.
Smith was born to be a
farmer-, His famil) has farmed
in, St. Johns Counl .since the
1920s.
S"In fact, my grandfather
lives in the same house he was
reared' in, built by his
grandfather in 1926," Smith
said. "We have a heritage: We
love the Lord our God, we
love each other and we love
working the land that God has
so graciously provided us, and
whereby has supplied our

The past few weeks, 1 have
learned of more than one minor-
ity candidate planning to run for
the District 1 seat..-Iffhis is the
case, this type of action will
result in a run-off election
which, as in years past, will en-
sure defeat for all minority can-
didates.
Wake up District 1. The cof-
fee is brewing, the only thing
lacking is a drop of cream. Some
of you reading this may say,
"This is a new day, we have a
minority president." Yes, it is a
new day, but the business of
politics is not new in northeast
Florida. Northeast Florida did
not vote for President Obama.
South Florida did.
On that note, I say this: Wake
up District I and smell the cof-

needs and many wants.
"I love farming. I love
agriculture."
To sum. up his feelings,
Smith opened and closed his
speech with poems. The first
poem included such lines as:
It's a great, wonderful life.
For me, my children and my
wife;
To witness God's powerful
hand,
As we work this bountiful
land;
Watching things as they
grow;
Nature unfolds while we
behold;
A cow is born at its mama's
feet;
Sugar squeezed from cane so
sweet;
The sun rising across myN
field;
The warmth of its rays. my
skin does feel;
A coming crop, growing
every day;
A masterful work is on
display.
Smith's opening poem also
described living and working
in the city and how he once
was part of that scene before
returning to the farm:
I experienced this life just a
bit;
I soon realized I was not
made for it;
To the farm I went back
quick,
To live with my wife and
raise my kids;
There are no regrets for me
this day;
I love to farm, God made me
this way.

Ke\ stone Heights Junior High
football team \were safe as the
Indians dominated most of
their competition en route to a
perfect season.
."They achieved more than I
ever expected," head coach
John Mimbs said, alluding to
the fact that quarterback Kyle
Hi\ was the only returning
player who had any kind of
experience, really, as a
seventh-grader last year. Even
then, Hix played probably only
15 snaps last year.
Hix and the rest of the
Indians, though, averaged 26
points per game, outscoring
opponents 154-36. They
opened the season with a 28-
16 win over Bronson, though
all of Bronson's points came in
the second half after Keystone
built a 28-0 lead. No Keystone
starters played in the second
half.
The Indians recorded
consecutive shutouts of
Hla\wthorne (21-0) and
Bradford (28-0), but in a
second meeting between the
schools. Hawthorne gave
Keystone a tough game.
Keystone's defense, though,
stopped Hawthorne on a two-
point attempt in the final 30
seconds for a 14-12 win.
The Indians closed out the
season with a 21-0 win over
ILake Butler and a 42-8 win
o\ er Fort White.
Hawthorne was the only
team to score on Keystone's
first-team defense, which was
led by players such as middle
linebacker Sam Anderson.
Mimbs said he has'not seen a
player as talented as Anderson
at the junior high level in
years. He remembered one
game in which Anderson,
playing on the kickoff return
team, circled the entire field,
made up 40 yards and tackled
a ball carrier.
"The kid was flying,"
Mimbs said.
Mimbs said many of his
players play defensively and
offensively, but the reason he

doesn't play Anderson on
offense is simply because the
player would wear himself out.
"He loves football," Mimbs
said.
Offensively, Hix, whom
Mimbs said "can throw the
ball a mile," threw 10
touchdown passes. One of his
favorite targets was Jcrett
Tschorn, a kid who never
played football before, but
wound up being Keystone's
starting tight end. Tschorn
caught six touchdown passes.
"That's a lot for junior
high," Mimbs said.
Tailbacks Anton Noble and
Bryce Plummer helped pace
the offense as well, while
Anjalena Beasley made her
mark on special teams, kicking
two extra points.
Overall, Mimbs said the
team was composed of players
who have "football sense" and
who stayed out of trouble.
There were very few
disciplinary issues, which can
be a problem at the junior high
level, Mimbs said.
"The kids came out and had
a good year," Mimbs said.
Most of the starters were
eighth-graders, so they will
move up to at least junior
varsity next year. Mimbs said
if that core of players remains
intact, it will bode well for the
varsity team.
"If we can keep these kids
together, (varsity head coach)
Chuck (Dickinson) has a good
future," Mimbs said.



Thanksgiving was never
meant to be shut up in a

Buying a home becomes reality for Bradford Arc consumer


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/SIports Editor
He went from one present to
the next. as fast as a child on
Christmas \\ho doesn't even
give much thought on what he
or she has just opened before
ripping the wrapping paper off
of another gift, overwhelmed
by the desire to expose all
there is to see.
"I'm enjoying this tonight,"
Anthony Martin exclaimed.
"Oh, boy!"
It was not Christmas, and
Martin is not a child. Rather
than opening a present to
*reveal the latest most popular
to\ in the world, Martin was
enjoying the fact he was
receiving towels, blankets,
glassware and other such items
for the home.
Martin was celebrating the
fact he was a first-time home
buyer with friends and those
who work closely with him at
the Arc of Bradford County.
The housewarming party held
on Sept. 29 marked more than
just the purchase of a home. It
was recognition of the work
Martin put in and the life
changes he went through to
make the day a possibility.
"The grace of the good lord
did it," Martin said, but Mark
Williams, his job coach at the


Anthony Martin opens a set of towels during his housewarming party.


Arc of Bradford County,
reminded Martin that he, too,
deserved credit for doing the
things necessary to become a
homeowner.
Martin, who is an Arc
consumer, has overcome legal
issues as well as his own
disability in working toward
obtaining the things he wanted


in life, whether they be the
Western clothes he loves to
wear or the country music CDs
he likes to listen to.
Eventually, Martin set his
sights on something bigger-
owning his own home as
opposed to spending $350 in
rent on a very small house off
of Old Lawtey Road.


"Now, the difference is he's
taking that $350 and has just
added to it a little bit," said
Sherry Ruszkowski, the
director of the Arc of Bradford
County. "He has his own
three-bedroom house with an
acre of property.'"
Williams said the area
Martin used to live in forced


Martin to keep everything he
valued locked up inside the
house he rented, whether it
was his bicycle or his lawn
mower. In fact, living where
he did was simply not good for
Martin, who had difficulty
staying out of trouble,
Williams said.
Now, Martin lives in a
secluded area off of Butler
Road in Starke where he can
enjoy "peace and quiet."
"I was a little skeptical in the
beginning," Ruszkowski
admitted regarding Martin's
choice of where to live since
the house is off the beaten path
quite a bit. "I kept asking him,
'Are you sure you're not
concerned about it being so far
back off the road?' 'No,
ma'am. I like it. I like it. Peace
and quiet.' That's all he would
ever say. 'I like it. Peace and
quiet.'"
Martin has his peace and
quiet, but he's not totally
alone.
"He loves seeing animals out
there," Williams said. "Just
about every time you go out

The process of buying a
home for Martin was -no
different from how anyone,
goes about doing so. He
obtained a loan from a bank as
well as qualifying for
assistance through the State
Housing Initiatives
Partnership, or SHIP program.
As far as people with
disabilities go, the process
used to viewed by some as a
different matter when it
shouldn't have been,
Ruszkowski said. She recalled
initiating a loan application for
an Arc consumer in the Palatka
area when she worked in that
area in the early 1990s. A real-
estate agent requested that
Ruszkowski provide a
"certificate of competence"
since the potential buyer was
receiving Arc services.
"It just so happened I had a
friend who was an attorney at
the time," Ruszkowski said. "I

When Murphy activated his
patrol car's lights, the man
stopped in the middle of U.S.
301. Murphy said he used his
PA system to repeatedly order
the man to pull into a nearby
parking lot. Murphy reported
the man continued to sit in the
middle of 301 until Murphy got
out of his patrol car and yelled
to the man to pull over.

When the car finally pulled
into the parking lot, the driver
started to get out of the vehicle.
Murphy said he repeatedly or-
dered him to stay in the vehicle,
but he got out anyway. When
Murphy pulled his Taser from
its holster, the man finally got
back in the vehicle.

Anthony Martin (left) is pictured with his job coach,
Mark Williams.


HOUSE
Continued from Page 7B

called and consulted with him.
He was kind enough to draft
me a letter to send to the real-
estate agency, telling them to
proceed without any regard to
disability because they had met
all the qualifications, and they
had gone through all the
processes the same as anyone
else. Their decision should not
be based on disability."
Seeing how things have
changed over the years has
been rewarding, Ruszkowski
said. Martin experienced no
such prejudice in working with
Wallace Smith at Mercantile
Bank and Angela Cooper, the
director of Bradford County's
SHIP program.
"It's awesome to be a part of
that (process), especially when
you look at the history of
where people with disabilities
were 30 years ago,"
Ruszkowski said.
Ruszkowski's family, of
course, has a heart for people
who are Arc consumers. Her
daughter, Lisa Baker, who is a
civil engineer and also has a
real-estate license, lent her
support to helping Martin. She
found the house he eventually
bought on the Multiple Listing
Service Web site and helped
make up the between what.
Martin -was -approved-l'or aindc
what the seller was asking.
"Lisa said, 'Mama, we can't
let him lose this. I'll just kick
in my commission.' She
negotiated the difference with
the seller, and she contributed
her commission so that
Anthony could have a house,"
Ruszkowski said.
The process discouraged
Martin at times because it took
a while, but Williams said he
and others kept trying to lift
Martin's spirits, telling him
they went through the same
things when they bought
homes.
Then, when closing day
arrived, Martin was anxious.
"We went to an attorney's
office in Keystone,"
Ruszkowski said. "I noticed
his hands were sweat). When
he was signing the documents,
his hands were shaking, he was
so neIvous."
Afterward, though, Martin
was ready to mark the
occasion in style.
"We had to go to Sonny's,"
Ruszkowski said. "He thought
we should celebrate."
The Sept. 29 housewarming,
of course, was another reason
to celebrate. Guests \aere
treated to tours by an
enthusiastic Martin of a'house
that was spotless. Ruszkoi\ski
said Martin is very meticulous
when it comes to his
appearance and overall
cleanliness. It's a trait Martin
displays on his cleaning job at
the Arc of Bradford ('ountx.
"He's an immaculate
cleaner." Williams said.
"Sometimes, he'll complain at
the Arc about the bathrooms
and how bad the) are. He then
turns around and makes it
positive-'It's job security.
It's like, you've got to look on
the bright side."
Martin wasn't always so
eager to perform a job.
Williams said Martin, \who
lived previously in a group
home in Gainesville because of
a court order, was in quite a bit
of legal trouble and had some
financial issues w hen he began
working with him, Williams
said. Williams said Martin
didn't really want to work a
job at first.
Receiving a steady income
and enjoying its benefits,


though, had a profound effect
on Martin as a person.
"I think what really
motivated him in coming to
work and all was starting to
earn the money and seeing
what he was able to buy as a
result,'" Williams said. "He
was able to get things he
wanted."
Martin's nature is such that

he thanks Williams for
everything he's been able to
achieve, even though the
responsibility, in the end, was
Martin's.
"Anthony's always so
appreciative," Williams said.
"He would always say,
'You're the one who made this
happen.' I was like, 'No. You
came to work. You stayed out
of trouble. It-was you. I only
suggested you do these
things.'"
Now, Martin is making
plans as a homeowner. He
wants to start a garden, looks
forward to doing yardwork and
has some remodeling plans in
mind since he bought the
house in time to qualify for the
$8,000 tax credit.
"He loves it," Ruszkowski
said. "He's already planning
and preparing for what he's
going to do."
Christmas may still be more
than a month away, but Martin
has already received the best
gift.

turkey from Sandy Ring.


TURKEYS
Continued from Page 2B

Cognito Farm. The turkeys'are
placed upside down into
stainless steel cones, with their
heads sticking out at the
bottom, while one of their
carotid arteries is severed with


a sticking knife.
"Whenever you hold a bird
upside down for about 15 to 20
seconds, they sort of go into a
trance," Williams said. "They
just relax and are out of it."
By severing the artery, all of
the blood in the turkey is
pumped out of the body by its
heart.


Prior to bagging, the turkeys were placed in a tub of
ice.

Thanksgiving Day is a ewel, to set in the hearts of
honest men; but be careful-thatyou do not take the.:.
day, and leave out the gratitude. -E.P. Pcwell


Once a turkey is dead and
the blood drained, it is dipped
into scalding water and then,
after its head and feet are
removed, placed into a device
known as a Whizbang Chicken
Plucker-a motorized
contraption that utilizes a
spinning disc and rubber
fingers to remove all the
feathers.
From the Whizbang, the
turkey goes into chilled water,
before its organs and crop are
removed. It then goes into
another bath and is bagged for
the consumer.
Despite the fact she has paid
visits to the turkeys several
times a day, Williams was not


so attached to the birds that she
couldn't go through with
killing them. If the turkeys
were bought as pets, that
would be one thing, Williams
said. However, she bought
them to wind up on tables at
Thanksgiving.
"I say to people that we have
a deal with the animals,"
Williams said. "We feed them
for so long. Then they feed
us,'
As she sitsdon h to' a meal

be grateful for what went into
producing the food that adorns
her family's table. She
encourages everyone to do the
same this Thanksgiving.
"Oftentimes, because we
don't think about how long it
takes or the effort that goes
into our food, we take more


than we should," Williams
said. "We leave it on our plates
or, worse, we overeat, or, even
worse, we're not even
recognizing the taste and
flavor of the food, or
understanding what went into
it."


Thanksgiving after all, is a word of action.

impressive start this season,
defeating visiting Baker

The Tornadoes, who lost
only one weight class,
recorded nine wins by pins, all
but two of which occurred in
the first period.
"It's been 16 years since

(135), Ricky Hill (145), Cody
Hankerson (171), Philip James
(189), Darris.Gorden (215) and

Bradford wrestlers Ethan

Brandon Funderburk was
pinned in the third period,
giving Bradford its only loss in
the 112 class.
Adams, who coaches the
team with Dana Arthur, said he
has high expectations of this
year's team, even though it's a
freshman- and sophomore-
heavy group with only two
seniors and three juniors.
"I have a really young
team," Adams said, "but
, they're progressing."
The new head coach was
pleased to see an early
Syndication of his team's
dedication during a "lock-in" a
couple of weeks ago on a
Friday night. At midnight, his
team went for a run, with the
wrestlers taking their own
initiative to continue
conditioning for more than
four hours. They did not want
to stop working, Adams said.
-He credited captains Paulk and
Reddish for that.
Now, Adams hopes his team
can go on and win its district
and have a good representation
at the state finals. He believes
he can take as many as nine to
state.
"We've got a really
promising team this year,"
Adams said.
Bradford will be hosting

We're in a difficult time in America and here in i i
Bradford County. The economy is not what we
desire, fuel prices high and a real stress on all of
us and our families. Many have lost their jobs or had their hours cut back -
some have lost their homes. The family is under attack from many sources.
People are sick and many have seen their loved one's pass away.
So how do we give thanks in such troubled times? It's not an easy answer.
First of aql we need to turn to God. Seek Him with all of our heart. The Bible
says to love God with all of our heart and with all of our soul and mind, and to
love our neighbor as yourself
The Book of Phillipians tell us to rejoice in the Lord always. It goes on to say
to take everything to the Lord by prayer and petition with thanksgiving.
I know I sure need to do that, will you join me in a time of prayer with
Thankgiving to God the Father?
In His Love with Thanksgiving

Western Steer,
