Page6A Monday, January 20, 1986 The Bismarck Tribune Blaze kills horses valued at $5 million ELMONT, N.Y. (AP) - Anguished horse trainers mourned the loss of 45 thoroughbreds suffocated by an early morning fire at a Belmont Park Racetrack barn that left the animals looking "like they're asleep," a fire official said. A barn sprinkler system broke down late last week and was to be repaired by today, officials said. Track officials said the barn was worth $1 million and the horses were valued at up to $5 million. "I'm so sorry they had to go, and go that way," Mike Daggett, a trainer who lost eight horses, said Sunday as firefighters drenched the twisted ruins of the wooden structure destroyed by the fire. "1 was so proud of my stable," he said, struggling to keep back tears. "By being with them every day, every month, every year, you see them fulfilled at the racetrack by winning. That's how they become a part of you. "Even if they finish fifth and try hard, you become attached to them," he said. John P. Campo, trainer of 1981 Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Pleasant Colony, lost 36 of his 38 horses in the fire. He sat with his head in his hands, staring at the ground and refusing to answer questions. One of two rescued horses was Pleasant Sea, an offspring of Pleasant Colony, but four more horses that the champion sired were believed killed. "Terrible, terrible," Campo said later. "There were some nice horses in there. You don't know about most of them because they were basically untried." Campo said only five or six of his Match successful therapy. Then came the good news: Lori, alone of her cousins, had proven "as close a match as we might see in a sibling," Kaur says. Hilda had already retired from her postmaster's job in Golden Valley to help her daughter care for her sons, aged 4 and 3. Now Lori took a leave of absence from her job in the Attorney General's office, and with Hilda, Amy and the - boys, went to Seattle in late October to set up housekeeping in an apartment close to the Fred Hutchinson Center. At Hutchinson, Amy underwent chemotherapy and radiation treatments to kill off her own diseased bone marrow, and received her transplant from Lori Nov. 14 a year to the day after her leukemia was diagnosed in 1984. She would be in the hospital for a month, the prescribed period, as the engraftment "took" and she managed to avoid complications. Lori, whose blood type was transferred to Amy along with her bone marrow, stayed in town to donate blood as needed. She returned to Bismarck Dec. 10, and Amy was back in the Schirado's position upheld cient manner." The board and the judge should attempt to resolve their differences and "seriously consider the guidelines issued by the North Dakota Legal Counsel for Indigents Commission," wrote Spaeth. Schirado said this morning that he considers the opinion a vindication of his position. The judge said the court must ensure defendants get "good, competent attorneys," which he said is jeopardized by setting up a list. In addition, the system of requiring those convicted of misdemeanors to repay such fees means there is no cost to the county, said Schirado. The opinion was sought by the County Commission, which last month rejected contract bids after Schirado questioned the commissioners' authority in setting up a contract.

Robert Kern, 53, who lost three horses, including one he had purchased just hours before the fire, said "I'm just sick. I'm very upset and disturbed and brokenhearted." Flames shot 50 feet into the air and a 100-foot section of the 400-foot-long barn caved in before 200 firefighters could contain the blaze more than an hour after it was reported at 1:19 a.m. Sunday, said Elmont Fire Chief James Sna-decky. Most of the horses were found in .their 12-foot by 12-foot stalls where they were tied up for the night. The dense, rolling smoke from the fire that started in the middle of the green barn felled the horses quickly and probably with little pain, Assistant Fire Chief John Loser said. "The ones at the end of the barn are lying there like they're asleep," Loser said. John Keenan, vice president of operations for the New York Racing Association, said the sprinkler system's pipes burst last week when the temperature fell to near zero and "would have been repaired today or tomorrow." The horses were among more than 2,000 kept in 64 barns on the grounds of the 430-acre complex in the New York City suburbs. The cause of the fire remained undetermined, although authorities found "nothing that indicates it would be suspicious," said Detective Lt. William Gutersloh, commanding officer of the Nassau County arson squad. Keenan said it was possible that hay kept in the barn ignited spontaneously. apartment with her mother and boys two days later, ready for what Hilda calls "one of the best Christ-, mases we ever had, because we had so much to be thankful for." Until the target date for her return home to Beulah Feb. 22, Amy will continue with her weekly checkups at Hutchinson. "She brought us a laugh when she returned from the clinic the other day," Hilda says. "A fairly young doctor from Winnipeg did a spinal tap on her, and when he had her pinned to the table with his foot-long needle, he said, 'Now that 1 have you here, I'd like to talk to you about Garrison Diversion.' " Amy, a laboratory foreman for Montana Dakota Utilities at the Coyote power plant, is "anxious for others to hear about bone marrow transplants. I know how it feels to be faced with an uncertain future, and now I know how it feels to have new hope." Her mother says: "We know this miracle Lori's being a perfect donor, and how well Amy came through all the chemotherapy, radiation and trauma happened because of all the prayers of our family and friends. "Praise God! He hears prayers." costs and to ensure attorneys are available for cases. According to a 1984 report, at least seven counties in the state, including Burleigh, have contracts with local attorneys for defending indigents, who have a constitutional right to counsel. State's Attorney Richard Schnell told Morton commissioners this morning the contract system set up through the Indigent Commission guidelines has worked well elsewhere. "This is the only county where the judge refused to go along with contracting," said Commission Chairman Richard Bendish. After hearing Spaeth's opinion, Morton commissioners voted 3-2 this morning to bring the matter up again Feb. 4 and to invite Schirado. The judge wasn't at the commission meeting this morning. Commission . Chairman Richard Bendish and Commissioner Rose Leingang voted against the action. "I can't see this board wasting its time. The judge has told us 'no' twice," said Bendish. The motion by Commissioner Robert Chase noted that if the commission can't get the cooperation of the judge on a contract, then the county should ask the North Dakota Supreme Court to formulate an administrative rule from the guidelines. Nelson considering benefit for Indians MESCAL, Ariz. (AP) - Singer Willie Nelson, who helped organize last September's FarmAid concert to help the nation's farmers, says he's now planning a benefit for native Americans. "I've been thinking about doing something for the Indians for a long time," Nelson said. "They are constantly mistreated. I think it's about time we started treating them like citizens, like the original Americans that they are." Nelson is here in this small town near Tucson to film the made-for-television movie "Stagecoach".
