Farm chores Harley Brady of Nobleford fixet a hydraulic attachment on his farm tractor. Harley Brady shows spirit after mishap NOBLEFORD (SpeciaD- In May last year, district farm- er, Harley Brady, broke both his legs above the knee, when the front end loader he was op- erating accidently slipped into gear, causing it to roll for- ward, pinning him against his house. After reaching hospital in Lethbndge, Dr Gerhard Dried- ger, a orthopedic surgeon, faced a formidable task. After five and one-half hours in the operating room, the doc- tor had only worked on the right leg, but he had to call it a day. The left leg was put m a cast three weeks later. GRAFT A. bone graft was required, if the right leg was to mend prop- erly, so back to the operating room again. Mr. Brady, reports this operation was the worst of them all. For six and one-half months, the wheelchair was his only mode of transportation. During this time he had hours of physio-therapy. In November, he finally got his crutches and was released and went home. By February he had pro- gressed to the point where he was allowed two canes and now he gets around on one cane. Harley loves to dance and re- cently made one complete round of the dance hall vith his daughter-in-law. Ria his partner. FARM WORK This year, Mr Brady has done all his farm work, includ- ing seeding 450 acres and 120 acres of summerfallow. After watching this man of the soil do so well, one can only surmise that sheer determina- tion has enabled this man to overcome certain immobility. Along with medical treat- ment, Mr. Brady can continue being a useful member of so- ciety, as he'd have it "no other way." Delegation approaches Sparwood council Residents cry foul about sewers NATAL, BC. (HNS) At ihe last regular meeting of the District of Sparwood council, Mr. and Mrs C D Hall of Englemann Spruce Drive in Sparwood appeared before council to report that for the second time since Easter the sewer system had backed up into their basement. The couple appeared to ask if anything could be done to orevent recurrence of the prob- lem. The Hall home, along with about three others, has base- ment drains which are lower than the overflow system at the sewer plant, and when trouble occurs at the plant, sewage t> a c k s up into their basement through these drains. The first incident occurred over the Easter weekend. A pump failure at the sewage plant was allegedly caused by foreign matter blocking the sys- tem after a sewer line was re- paired. The most recent incident was also the result of a pump fail- ure in the system This failure was presumably caused by a rock found in one of the pumps. Although home owners suf- fering damage from the first backup will receive some com- pensation from the contractor's insurance, there is no reason to assume compensation will be granted for the second occur- rence. Levels were given to the con- tractors who built the homes in question and contractors were advised of the desirability of building at a suitable level. In several cases the contrac- tors elected to build below the advised level, yet no provision was made in the mechanical de- sign to prevent sewer back- flow. Council asked the public works committee to study and recommend possible solutions to the and to investi- gate the possibility oij a new signal system which will pro- vide improved warning of trou- ble at the sewer plant. In the case of the most re- cent problem the public works VtRN DECOUX photo Elkford receives OFY grant Pat Kitchener (left) Helen Howard and Marissa Blondheim check inventory of some supplies they will be using in their arts and crafts program under the OFY pro- gram The girls recently received a grant of for an Elkford community child- ren's summer program.

The court case to settle the dispute with Tip Inn was held recently in Cranbrook, but the judge indicated a delay in judg- ment of up to three weeks. The municipal clerk reported there were a number of expenses in- volved in bringing witnesses to the court which would have to be paid by council. Council ac- cepted the report All-around cord won at Claresholm CLARESHOLM (Special) Girl Guides and Brownies held a combined meeting in Christ the King church hall in June.

A second case was also re- ported to council involving the District of Sparwood At Cran- brook, the case of Matt Pruden, formerly employed as assessor for a number of municipalities in the regional district of East Kootenay is being heard. Mr. Pruden had brought suit for losses incurred on his dis- charge from the position. The clerk advised that the case was settled out of court and that a full report would be forthcom- ing from the district of East Kootenay in the near fu- ture. A letter was received from Vanir Building Sales, contrac- tor for the recreation complex, requesting a meeting with council in regard to the spray- on insulation in the arena. The municipal clerk was ask- ed to reply to the letter refer- ring Vanir to Egon Tensfeldt, the construction supervisor re- tained by the municipality for this construction project Three readings were given to the bylaw to provide for interim financing for the pavement pro- ject.
