  • Suspicious Barrels Cause Haz Mat Response

    Posted by Posted on Friday, 12 Dec 2014 06:33 PM

     

    On the morning of October 23, while preparing winter sand at the town gravel pit, two old barrels were dug up in the sand pile.  The Town Highway crew brought the barrels over by the garage for further inspection.

    As the dirt and sand was being brushed off the barrels, the Highway Department noticed the barrels were quite rusted, and one top had become loose, and the employees could not determine what the contents may be. 

    Foreman Mike Anthony contacted the Fire Chief Al Barber to report the incident. Chief Barber contacted the Haz Mat hotline, and the area was secured pending the arrival of the HazMat Team.  Once the Team arrived, they donned protective suits and proceeded to inspect the barrels further.  They were unable to determine what the contents were, or if they were explosive.

    The State Bomb Squad was contacted to respond.  The Bomb Squad detonated a hole in one of the barrels to obtain a sample of the contents.  Onsite testing was unable to determine the contents. A sample was sent to the state lab for testing and they too were unable to determine what it was.

    The Brandeis University women's soccer team, led by Hinesburg's Emma Eddy, finished their regular season with a 0-0 draw with rival New York University, in New York City, on Saturday November

    Brandeis, a private research university, with a liberal arts focus, was founded in 1948, and is located eight miles west of Boston. It was named in honor of the distinguished US Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis, thus their nickname, the Judges.

    Emma has started every match in her senior season, as an outside back, so has played a major role in her team's success on defense. The latest shutout was the Judges’ twelfth of the season, allowing them to set a school record for fewest goals allowed during the regular season. Brandeis’ record is now 12-4-2, and they have allowed their opponents to score only nine goals all season, five fewer than the previous team record, set 24 years ago.
