Allan Elder of Aurora, CO and formerly of Timber Lake, is one of two people who contracted Legionnaire’s Disease after using the swimming pool and hot tub at Bally’s gym in Aurora. Elder spent six days in the hospital after being diagnosed with the sometimes fatal bacterial disease in April. He told the Topic on Tuesday that he is feeling stronger every day but it will be about five more months before he will be fully recovered. He said he worked out three or four times a week at Bally’s, which has been closed by health department authorities.
