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????

David Wax Museum

“Joyful Mexo-Americana fusion, with virtuosic musical skill and virtuous harmonies.”- The New Yorker

Fusing traditional Mexican folk with American roots and indie rock is the specialty of duo of David Wax and Suz Slezak.  On several trips south of the border, David Wax immersed himself in Mexico’s rich traditional music culture, while Suz Slezak was homeschooled by her father on a small farm in rural Virginia.  The two met in 2007 and began blending their unique musical perspectives to form the band.

With the release of Knock Knock Get Up in 2012, David Wax Museum reached a level of cross-cultural integration and musical fluency that now allows them to speak electrifying and heartfelt poetry with a tongue that is wholly their own.   From being ranked #8 on Paste Magazine’s list of the Best Live Acts of 2011, to receiving  a nod from TIME magazine as one of the top ten acts of 2011’s South by Southwest, David Wax Museum has become the hottest of America's indie bands.

David Wax Museum was nominated for three Boston Music Awards in 2012: Artist of the Year, Song of the Year (“Harder Before It Gets Easier”), and Folk Artist of the Year, winning the award for Song of the Year.
