Judge Presides In a Barnyard ' FRANKLIN, Wis. (AP) — Saddled with the chore of settling a dispute over ownership of a 10-year-old buckskin mare and a pair of electric horse clippers, Milwaukee County Court Judge Robert J. Miech decided he had to take his court to the horse. So he, his court reporter, a bailiff and two attorneys traveled to this rural town and set up court in a barnyard Monday. After a walk tlurough a stable and close inspection of the animal, Miech called the court into session and presided at a bench made of two empty rabbit hutches. In minutes, he ruled the horse belonged to Carole Evangelisti, 27, Milwaukee, but ordered her to pay $487.50 board for the 13 months the horse had spent at the farm. Sues for Property Miss Evangelisti liad sued Charles Horvath for the horse and chpi>ers, claiming she had received them in a property settlement when she was divorced a few years ago.

THE PRELIMINARY SITE PLAN for the proposed Kendall Lake on the Arkansas River west of Kendall has been released by the Corps of Engineers. The site plan, while it is subject to revision, provides citizens in that area with their first detailed look at the section by section maximum flood pool elevation and the spillway crest elevations. The map also shows the propbsed relocation of US50 and the Santa Fe Railroad. The proposed flood protection levee for Syracuse is also shown. Says Broadacres Plant Not Properly Maintained Criticizes Sewage Plan Architect Norman Mann said Tuesday he feels the county's dedsaon to purchase a new sewage ejection station at Broadacres was unnecessary. Mann, who designed the new adult care facility at Broadacres, the county's home for the aged, said the problem witli tlie existing station is that it has not been properly maintained. Without maintenance, the county system for the station malfunctions, and this allows sewage to pile up in the lines, Mann said. County commissioners announced Monday they would purchase a new ejection station. Cost will be $5,427, plus $700 to $800 fcxr installation and hookup. The commissioners contended that tlie existing station, which handles sewage from both the new facility and the old Broadacres building, is in working order. But the line which brings sew- DENNIS THE MENACE age from the new facility comes into the station too low, creating an inadequate resei-ve area. Built Too Low? Cliairman Jolin SuUon suggested that the problem was due to the new facility being built at loo low an elevation. If the facility had been on a higher elevation, the line could have had proper fall and still entered the station higher, he said. Mann explained that the line actually enters a vortical pit alongside the station. In a diagram supplied by tlie company whicli manufaolurcd tlie station, Smith and Loveless jof Lenexa, the "influent line comes in right at the bottom," said Mann. "And that's the way we did it." The architect said he did not believe the State Department of Health would approve a design which had the "influent line" coming in higher. He explained that the city has parliaps a dozen sewage ejection systems which are given regular maintenance. One station at (he Big M Track Stop is similar to tlic one at Broadcres, except that tlic "influent line' 'comes directly into the station and not into a pit. Jim Yeager, city sewage plant superintendent, said the Big M station needs maintenance about every week, or it would develop the same problems as the one at Broadacres, Mann said. Ho said a representative of the county engineer's office was on iiaiid on one occasion wiien Yeager pointed out the problem after the station malfunctioned. Lcanicd From Media He knew of no further problems until he learned througli the news media that the county commis.sion had decicied to purchase a new station. Sutton said Monday ilie new station "will bo .set deeper in the gi'ound and will have a different action than the original pump. "It will be able to intiike and discharge sewage at the same time, which makes It much more efficient." Tlie new station will be installed immediately .soutJi of the old one, which will be used ns a reserve. It's Big Enough Mann said there is no question that the existing .station, which was designed by engineer Jack Hefling of South Hutchinson, is big enough to handle (.ho .sewage from the two buildings. "The city has a lot smaller ones that arc handling a lot more sewage," he .said. 'Hie architect disputed Sut(on's contention that the elevation of the new facility is wrong. "We started witii the sewer sy.'?lem aJid developed from thcjt!," said Mann. ^Vhal You C:an Do About Dangerous Drugs The Hutchinson, Kansas News P. 0. Box T) Teaneck.
