Sizzlin' Singles

alt

For these individuals, being single is a matter of choice. They’ve made the decision to put career and community first—something that deserves a big thank you from us.

These men and women are thinking of the future and letting nothing stand in their way...even a pesky fire.

That’s right. This year, all the men happen to be Kern County firefighters. And, shockingly, the gals we selected had no problem with this. We wonder why.

But seeing as all our singles are intelligent, hard-working, and successful, we naturally wanted to know what makes them tick. What is it that drives them to be the best they can be? What gives them the energy to be loving sons and daughters, dedicated parents, caring friends, concerned citizens, and still have time to manage their own businesses, rise in the ranks at their chosen profession, and follow their dreams...

And if you’re anxious to catch one of these singles, your best bet is the annual Boots and Bachelors Auction, held at Buck Owens’ Crystal Palace on October 2.

Now before you get too carried away soaking up all the sizzlin’ fun on these pages, remember one thing: we won’t be giving out any digits. So don’t even try asking.
