Remember the Explosion on Route 9 in 1970?

Tuesday, August 4, 2009

By Carol Ann Berry
Contributor

This story is about my father, Richard Barker formally of 120 North Ave, Natick Mass.

When my parents were married they lost the house they were renting to own off of Route 9 in Natick, Mass there was a furniture store they were the owners of the house that blew up.

At the time of the explosion; the company that was hired to put tress in around the house were digging a trench and ended up hitting a gas line and knew it and started running the opposite direction.

My mom Janice around 21 to 22 at the time was pregnant and very sensitive to the gas that she smelled and ended up going out the front door saw the contractor running and yelled, "hey, I smell gas"; he must have felt guilty or didn't realize that anyone was home and saw that she was pregnant and told her to "get out of the house!"

She was going to go down the basement to get our family cat and realized that there isn't enough time; she grabbed me wrapped me up in a blanket and ran and ended up jumping over the huge trench and almost fell backwards...

just as she made it; the house blew from the basement about 30 feet in the air and the only thing that stood up to the explosion were the front door and the mail box.

Settlement Stolen From Richard Barket & Charles Prombain, ESQ.

The reason I am writing this is because no one seemed to have any answers for me while I was growing up as to why the attorney for my parents took off with the settlement money and no one did nothing about it? That is inexcusable!

I found the attorney down in Palm Beach Florida; unfortunately his wife answered the phone and said that he passed away. How can this have happened and no one did anything about it? I have been trying to find answers and can't seem to get anywhere.

I know that the statute of limitations has run out but I would like to know if my dad had part in this, and MAYBE hid the monies from the settlement and over time spent his share. He left my mom with kids and no where to go and he never paid child support and didn't care about us. We lived in the High Street projects and Egmont Street projects because we had no where to go.

If anyone remembers the story or has information please comment on this story. Thank you for your consideration in assisting me in any way that you can. This has been haunting me for years...

I know that one of my parents would have had to sign the settlement agreement and have to know that the attorney wasn't or shouldn't have been the one that was the payee... Please help me????

Violet Jam presents: Robin Zander Band

What do musicians do when they're not playing music?

Look for opportunities to play more music.

And that's the simple story behind the new Robin Zander Band, comprised of Cheap Trick frontman Zander, drummer Steve Luongo, guitarist Mark Hitt and bassist Larry Hobbs.

What emerges on any given night is anyone's guess - including, it seems, the musicians' who paused mid-interview to bandy about some ideas. In seriousness, though, the beauty of creating a new band out of longtime musical friends is that they have decades of experience from which to pull.

There's no precise road map set for The Robin Zander Band; members are just eager to take the stage and see what emerges. "We'll just go wherever it takes us," Zander says. Their set naturally includes Zander's solo material, a few Cheap Trick hits and also nods to Luongo's past touring days with "Who" bassist John Entwistle. Add to that RZB's passion for real rock and roll and the stage is set for an anything goes performance including special guest artists.

Doors 7p. DJ 7p-9p. RZB 9p-11p. Food can be purchased through our Restaurant, Pantry and Violet Thorn. Drinks can be purchased through our cash bars or at the Violet Thorn.

They are perhaps best remembered for their 1983 single "She's a Beauty", a top 10 U.S. hit with a frequently-played music video in the early days of MTV; and in the 1980 film Xanadu singing the rock portion of the cross-genre song "Dancin'" opposite a big band.

Doors and DJ 7p. Band 9p. 

Dine at our restaurant, Pantry, and have drinks in our bar, Violet Thorn, before and after the show!
