However, Evett said if Jupiter buys Tequesta's system, it would a be a win for each municipality.

WATER fir am 1C I "I don't think it would be good to sell to the town of Jupiter," said Tequesta Mayor Liz Schauer.

The letter could spark some dialogue. Jupiter Town Manager Lee Evett said the court appeal would be history because it becomes moot if the sale goes through. We would then own the system." He said the $8 million is a preliminary estimate, and a final figure would be negotiated be tween the two municipalities. Jupiter, which already supplies about half Tequesta s water, has pledged that village residents wil. get the same monthly rates as its residents, said Jupiter utilities di rector David Brown. Jupiter residents now $22.48 for 10,000 gallons $34.98 for 20,000 gallons, pay and with Tequesta charging $32.30 and $56.20, respectively, Brown said. Internet helped pair to reunite MARRIAGE From 1C And he did. The investigator found Giese's son, also named Craig, through the Internet. "Do you have red hair?" he asked in an e-mail. "No, but my dad does," the son messaged back from his college in California. Later, that October 1996, the son e-mailed his father, "Somebody interesting is going to be calling." "I logged off," the elder Giese said. "And it was her." In January, after two months of unmanageable phone bills, Vars flew from West Palm Beach, tyhere she moved in 1988, to Seattle, where Giese had lived with his former wife and two sons. I At their first meeting, at the airport, a nervous Giese wore a T shirt saying "Sleepless in Seattle," over his head. "It was just unbe lievable," Vars said. : Asked what he felt, Giese smiled but couldn't put it in words. A month later, Giese took four-day trip to see Vars, and the two decided to call Seattle home. ; But in October, using $5,000 they won from the state lottery, they returned to South Florida. Two weeks ago they decided to marry. "The main thing right now is to have him on my insurance," said Vars, who begins a full-time secretarial job Dec. 15 at Hulett Environmental. ; , Giese, who worked in restau-rant management for 30 years, is looking for work. I ' "I remember when they first started dating, recalled Vars fa-tther, who drove three hours to be with 12 family members and , friends at the ceremony. "I !wouldn't let them go out alone. I made them take her big sister as a Khaperone." J '. The pair still has supervision, they've moved in with Vars' daughter and son-in-law in Port St. 'Lucie until they can save some money to find their own apart-J ment. ' "Instead of raising kids, we can Srjaise grandkids together," Vars ' said after they married. I k; Their rejoining, said the notary I public who wed them, is a tale of ' fome full circle to join their desti- nies together." Best Credit Card Interest Rates?
