Sierra Sun announces newest eligible bachelor

Add another portrait to the Tahoe Forest Hospital maternity ward’s “wall of fame”: Ethan Michael Raymore.Yes, Paul and Meg Raymore welcomed Ethan early Wednesday morning – all 7 pounds, 11 ounces and 19-and-a-half inches of him. The family is doing great. And despite the rumors, Paul, the editor of our Action magazine, hasn’t entered Ethan into Action’s “most eligible bachelor” contest – yet. (That even though our on-the-ground intelligence has it that Ethan has a full head of curly dark hair.) However, after my own recent – and current – sleepless experiences with a very, very young bachelor, Paul and Meg just may want their boy to head off to college real soon. But even that doesn’t mean Ethan, or my own Kelly, won’t come back home to – um, er – haunt our sleep. Since the 1970s, the number of individuals ages 18 to 34 living with their parents has increased by 50 percent, according to US News and World Report.I suppose that could be something to look forward to, particularly if Ethan and Kelly are sharp enough in 18 years – or 34 – to wire the new entertainment system or, at my pace of tech upgrades, set the clock on the VCR.According to yet another poll, this one by Monster/ in 2003, of college seniors, 61 percent say they expect to move back home after graduation.That’s all well and fine. Just as long as our boys let us sleep later than 5 a.m. Congratulations Paul, Meg and Ethan!Jamie Bate is the editor of the Sierra Sun. Reach him
