Both buildings, approximately 10-by-12 feet in size, were used to store feed and hay, Kerwin said.

New American Legion post gets approval | em.gmnews.com | Edison/Metuchen Sentinel

If I see a copperhead around my place anywhere, I intend to kill it. In the 20 years we have lived here on this wooded ridge top miles outside of town, I have killed at least 40. I am not going to allow them to live around my Labradors or my grandkids.

The building is not just being moved, but moved and improved, he said. The project provides for a one-story, 4,205-square-foot building to be built on property owned by the Parking Authority at Wernik Place and Calvin Place, adjacent to the existing Halsey Street parking lot. The site is currently a small parking lot.

Exclusive: Goldman unit eyes foray into China amid metals financing scandal – Yahoo News

Using third parties is not a viable model anymore,” said a source at a major merchant that has metal stored in China. EXPANDING FOOTPRINT Steinweg, a 167-year-old Rotterdam-based firm, is looking to expand its vast footprint in China by leasing more sheds in Qingdao, as well as Shanghai and other locations in China, two sources familiar with the move told Reuters. Unlike some rivals, Steinweg carved out a niche in the burgeoning China market by operating and controlling its own depots, rather than using local agents, sources have said. The company leases storage space, often located in free-trade-zones in ports, and has its own staff to monitor the stock itself. More than 100,000 tonnes of copper has already flowed into its sheds from rivals’ depots since the scandal broke, one of the sources said. That is equivalent to about one-fifth of all the copper stockpiles estimated to be held in bonded storage in Shanghai, and nearly as much as the London Metal Exchange’s global inventories. The company declined to comment on the expansion.
