Blythevllle (Ark.) Courier News - Monday, June 13,MM- Pap Flvr Marry in' Sam Is Through By RICHARD E. MEYER LAS' VEGAS, Nev. (AP) Justice of the Peace James Brennan says he's a little tired of being known as a "Marrying Sam." He says it hurts the dignity of his office. But the reputation keeps dogging him. Brennan has married 15,000 people in the last year and a half, including Cary Grant, Jane Fonda, June Allyson and Roger Miller. And there's no sign of a letup. That's, what happens when you're the only justice of the peace in Las Vegas. Politicians look upon the job as a pretty good one. Af the lawful $5 per ceremony, it could mean Brennan has earned more than $735,000 in the 17 months he's been in office. 'But it's a 24-hour proposition. People want to get married at 9 or midnight — in tuxedos or barefooted, to fte tune of organs or guitars, in Brennan's chamber or in a hotel room. And Brennan obliges. Add some routine chores, such as the disposition of 12,307 minor arrests and citations, 6,027 small claims, 1,977 other civil actions, 486 criminal trials, S70 preliminary hearings, 4,556 misdemeanor filings and 1,512 felony filings — all since he's taken office, he said. When his term expires next January, he gays he'll seek another political office or go into private law practice. "I wouldn't run for this job again if it paid double," he said. Brennan has married all kinds of people. "Like the couple who went four years and three kids after their marriage license and didn't know they had, to go through a ceremony," he said. "Another couple came here and took'out a license — and got to Baker, Calif., before a waitress told them foe license wasn't enough. "Then there were the people who wanted their cocker spaniel as a witness. I didn't see any reason why he couldn't be there." But he doesn't give advice to newlyweds.
