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 through 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 Evangelist! had sued Charles Horvath for the horse and clippers, 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 proposed relocation of US50 and the Santa Fe Railroad. The proposed flood protection levee for Syracuse is also shown. Architect Norman Mann said' Tuesday he feels the counly's ecisdon to purchase a new sewage ejection station at roadacres was unnecessary. Mann, who designed the new dull care facility at Broadacres, the county's home for tie aged, said the problem with existing station is that it las n o t been ained. Says Broadacres Plant Not Properly Maintained Criticizes Sewage Plan properly main- 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 for installation and hookup. The commissioners contended that the 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- age from the new facility comes into the station too low, creating an inadequate reserve area. Built Too Low? Chairman John Button suggested that the due to the new problem was facility being DENNIS THE MENACE built at loo low an elevation. Tf the facility had been on a higher elevation, the line could lave had proper fall and still entered the station higher, he said. Mann explained that the line actually enters a vertical pit alongside the station. In a diagram supplied by the company which manufaoturec the station, Smith and Loveles. f Lenexa, the "influent 1 in omes in right at the bottom, aid Mann. "And that's the way ,-e 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 perhaps a dozen sewage ejec- ion systems which are given regular maintenance. One station at the Big M Truck Stop is similar to the one at Broadcres, except that the influent line' 'comes directly into the station and not into a . im Yeager, city sewage plant superintendent, said the g M station needs maintenance about every week, or it ould develop the same prob- ms as the one at Broadacres, Vlann said. He said a representative of lie county engineer's office vas on hand on one occasion Arhen Yeager pointed out the woblem after the station mal- unctioned. Learned From Media He knew of no further prob- ems until he learned through the news media that the county commission had decided to purchase a new station. Stilton said Monday the new station "will be set deeper in the ground and will have a dif ferent action than the origina pump. "It will be able to intake and discharge sewage at the sani time, which makes it mud more efficient." The new station will be in stalled immediately south the old one, which will be uscc as a reserve. It's Big Enough Mann said there is no qucs tion that the existing station which was designed by engineei Jack Hefling of South Hutchin son, is big enough to handl the sewage from the two build ings, "The city has a lot sanalle ones that are handling a lo more sewage," he said. The architect disputed Su ton's contention that the cleva tion of the new facility is wronf "We started system and with the developed sewc from Ihci-e," said Mann. Charge Pilot After Crash At Garden GARDEN CITY - A man giv- g his home as Garden City it flying under an Iowa student lot's license was charged by olh tlie Garden City Highway atrol and the Grant County lioriff's office in what wa? ibeled "an apparent crash' ere Monday night. Frank Tysdal, 48, was charg d with being drunk in publi iy Ihc Highway Patrol and tli sheriff's office charged him wit caving an unattended aircraft on a runway. Bond was set at $500. Although he suffered no injuries, Tysdal apparently had to make an emergency landing in his single engine Beech- craft Musketeer 23 around 11 p.m. Monday, according to investigating officers. When he landed, Tysdal's plane nosed over, partly off the runway. The plane was first noticed around midnight when other pilot landed his plane. Finding no one in the plane, the other pilot called the sheriff's office. Tysdal, who lost one ann in an auto accident a few years ago, was later found in Garden City. He told officers he had planned "to take a 1 i 111 e 20- minute flight" when he left Iowa.
