Like every good Hoosier dairyman, Elmer Brandt knew how to multipurpose a barn - milk cows below, hay storage & basketball court above. It was a place for his young sons to learn about hard work and fair play. But brothers will be just that and after the second trip to the local doc for more stitches, Elmer bent the hoop up into the air, ending the spirited games. In later years, a basket made it's way back into the barn, quietly reminding the old post & beam that its presence was still important. CGS.
