‘The Bachelor’ casting agents searching for man

Casting agents for the popular ABC show “The Bachelor” called Steamboat Springs this week looking for an eligible man. They are scouting in towns where there is a higher percentage of men than women.

They are looking for a man between the ages of 25 to 35, single with no children. The man should have an established career.

“We are looking for the quintessential eligible bachelor,” said ABC casting director Amy Raymond. “We want a guy that you would love to marry. He should be charismatic and attractive.”

The bachelors will be on television and numerous magazine covers, she said. “He needs to be the total package.”

He needs to be, in short, someone who 25 women would fall in love with and America would want to watch.

If you know this person and would like to nominate him for the show or for an article about Steamboat bachelors in the Steamboat Pilot & Today, e-mail or e-mail

The deadline for nomination is the end of January.

An application is available at and should be submitted with a photo.

Registered nurse refresher course starts Jan. 9

It has never been easier for an inactive registered nurse to get back into the profession. Yampa Valley Medical Center (YVMC) is one of several sites in Colorado that will host an RN refresher course in 2004. The local course will begin Jan. 9.

“This is an ideal class for inactive RNs who feel out of touch with today’s pace,” YVMC Nursing Educator Julie Alkema said. “A nurse who feels uncertain about today’s technology will get the necessary experience to be effective.”

The 220-hour course includes 100 interactive hours of theory taught at YVMC on Fridays, Jan. 9 to April 16. Students also will complete 80 hours of clinical experience in YVMC’s medical-surgical department with approved instructors. Each student can then select a specialty area in which to finish 40 hours of elective experience.
