Maximum benefits come from emphasis on spiritual growth and the acquiring of loving attitudes, rather than dwelling on the alcoholic's faults. Alcoholism is a "family disease." Compulsive drink- ing affects the drinker as well as the drinker's relationships: friendships, employment, childhood, parenthood, love affairs, marriages, all suffer from the effect of alcohol- ism. Those persons closest to an alcoholic are affected most and are caught up in the behavior of the alcoholic. The nature of the disease is that the alcoholic does not believe they are ill and are in denial. The AI-Anon Family Groups are a fellowship of relatives and friends of alco- holics who share their expe- rience, strength and hope in order to solve their common problems. Alateen and Al-Anon are not allied with any sect, de- nomination, political entity, organization or institution: does not engage in any con- troversy, neither endorses nor opposes any cause. There are no dues for membership. Alateen and Al-Anon are self-supporting through its own voluntary contributions. If you are a spouse, fam- ily member or friend, these meetings are open to you. These are non-smoking meetings.

Comm. meeting Continued from front page was also in controversy. The item was set aside until the documents could be read and revised. Since the $500,000 that was shaved from the sheriff depart- ment budget "went up in smoke," Sheriff Wade Lieseke presented the commissioners with a list of 17 vehicles that had high mileage and were in poor condition, and asked them what they were going to do about them. "It comes down to a matter of officer safety," Lieseke said, explaining that the vehicles are just unsafe to drive and that it is his job to provide safe equipment for his people. Lieseke said that the Salt Lake County sheriff's department has a policy to replace their vehicles every year and that he is making arrangements to purchase these vehicles for Nye County. The commission approved $300,000 for the purchase. Lieseke will try to consult with the district attorney' s office and juvenile division to arrange for vehicle purchases for those departments, as well. He said the fully equipped vehicles would have cost over $23,000 each if new and he would get them for $14,000.
