2. The District court erred in arbitrarily awarding the plaintiff spousal support in the amount of $450.00 per month for eight years.
3. The District court erred in arbitrarily awarding the plaintiff $2,354.00 of the defendant's checking account, plus 6 percent interest since November 5, 1998, without taking any evidence as to the actual amount in the checking account.
4. The District court erred in arbitrarily appraising the value of the home at $65,000.00 based solely upon the unsubstantiated recommendation of plaintiff's counsel and without any evidence as to the actual market value of the home.
5. The District Court's adjustment of the MasterCard AT&T debt of $4,198.00 solely to the defendant was arbitrary and erroneous.
