Rocks crash through roof of residence

Rutland Herald

A blasting mishap in Benson sent flying rocks through the roof of a local home, demolishing its dining room and causing other damage.

George Roberts, the subcontractor who designed and set the explosion, said it was his own mistake that led to the blast getting out of hand.

"I'm the guy who drilled it, I'm the guy who loaded it and I'm the guy who fired it," he said. "I'm the guy who sent rocks flying through the air. I'm the one to blame."

Roberts, a quarry-man and farmer in his 80s, said he's been working with explosives since he was about 15 and has been licensed to work with explosives ever since Vermont instituted that requirement.

Jim, time to retire with that HUGE pension of yours. You've given far too much of your life to public service. Time to enjoy the sunset years of your life ... and work on that horrible golf swing of yours. Call it quits and kick back.
