Denna Sattelberg wrote this story of her grandfather Ernie Sworthwood for the for the September 2004 Mi-HHA magazine. I had previously peppered the article with a couple of dozen content links, however my website is currently in the process of reactivation it's been necessary to remove the non-active links.

 The Sattelberg's have lost Lee's half-decade of harness racing equipment and tools (likely even his colors).
 If you enjoy this article, they are in dire need.
 What every you may give (even a dollar) would be greatly appreciated.

 They only had the one barn and it was used for storage as well.
So they lost all their equipment.

Many thanks

 

Don, I didn't ever see your initial request.   I cleaned it up now.

I hope for the best for these folks.   Is there some type of collection occurring for cash, equipment, etc?   If so please post the details.

 JJ,
     The fire took place on the morning of the Annual Mi-HHA Banquet.
The Mi-HHa Facebook page reported that there was some fundraising at the banquet, however these banquets hold multiple 50-50's and other passing of the hat, so pickings may have been bare.

 There was also some type of notice placed on the horseman's board at Northville Downs.

 I previously posted the following which supplies their address:
What every you may give (even a dollar) would be greatly appreciated.

 I'm not comfortable with placing anybody's phone and address in an open forum (I certainly would no list my own).
 Denna' 40-year best friend (Katie Beagle) provided all the details on a newspapers website forums that had multiple pics of burnt barn. (Sorry I didn't save the link)

 Anybody (willing to donate anything to Denna and Lee Sattelberg) could certainly contact the Michigan Harness Horseman's Association (I'm sure they'd be glad to help):
