Hospital evaluates hazmat readiness

EMERGENCY PERSONNEL GET dressed in hazmat suits for a drill at Porter Hospital Tuesday afternoon. Unlike many mock incidents, which often simulate traffic accidents, Tuesday’s drill taught the emergency teams how to deal with hazardous materials.

MIDDLEBURY — A few people who drove to the emergency room of Porter Medical Center during a brief period Tuesday afternoon were confused to see a decontamination tent set up near the entrance and emergency personnel covered from head to foot in protective gear. But there was no actual disaster: Porter staff were going through a regular drill to test their preparedness for a worse-than-usual accident or emergency.

To hell and back: Daughter tells a father's WWII story

September 27, 2007

By JOHN FLOWERS

MIDDLEBURY — Though the late Bob Blakeslee is recalled as a selfless and giving man, there was one thing he didn’t care to share — stories of his experiences during World War II.

“We just had little bits and snippets,” Middlebury resident Nancy Blakeslee Wood said of her father’s story. “He told us things in a humorous way. He talked about how he would sleep (in the jungles of the Philippines) and the rats would chew at his calluses.”

He never really opened up about it to his wife, Ruth, and his two children, Stephen and Nancy.

“I think men of that generation figured women and children don’t need to know that kind of thing,” Wood said. “He might have talked about it with war buddies … but he didn’t talk to us about it.”

As a result, Blakeslee’s heroic wartime legacy could’ve very easily died with him in 1976, when he succumbed to an illness.

ADDISON COUNTY — A new Addison County program offering money and financial counseling for those seeking to find and remain in affordable housing has in its first two months already stopped nine evictions/foreclosures and helped seven area families find places to live.

The program is called “Addison County Housing Solutions,” and is the brainchild of several state and county human services organizations, including the United Way of Addison County (UWAC), the John Graham Emergency Shelter, the Parent-Child Center of Addison County, Addison County Community Action Group (ACCAG), Neat Repeats and the Champlain Valley Office of Economic Opportunity (CVOEO).
