Wife Carrying Champion

SPORTING NEWS: John Farra, a former Olympic skier, won the North American Wife Carrying Championship at Sunday River, Maine last month. His first-place finish earned him and his 110-pound wife Tess her weight in beer and five times her weight in cash, or $550. Sedona considered such an event, but found no man who could lift his wife, never mind carry her.

In February, the two were arrested in a car that contained 172 pounds of marijuana in Lordsburg, NM near the Arizona state line and are now facing 40 years in prison if convicted. Being imprisoned could adversely affect their ability to lead their congregation and they felt it better if the church disbanded.
