., Vitals/Community News ~uiiet, n, er~ress,ve, el Former Keddie.resident Ry Dol m Coates Managing Editor Tonight, one of Plumas County's own will debut in the WB Network's "Felicity" at 9 p.m. Julianne Steger, 21, grew up in Keddie. She attended Quincy Elementary School, was home schooled, and spent her sophomore year at Quincy High School. Now, she calls Venice, Calif., home, just 20 minutes from the set of "Felicity." The show, starring Kerri Russell, is a one-hour drama about college life. Steger is joining the cast as a new freshman in the dorm. In a telephone interview, Steger talked about how a girl from Keddie lands a role on a major television show. After high school, Steger headed south to attend Santa Monica Community College. One night, she attended a party wRh some friends who were in the entertainment in- dustry. "This guy came up to me and said he was a talent scout and he had been watching me all evening," Steger said. "But, I didn't know if he was hitting on me, or ff he was for real." He was the real thing---a talent scout from the Endeav- or Talent Agency. Soon, Steger found herseff going on auditions. She taped a national commercial for Co- ca-Cola and appeared in an 'NSync video. She has done print modeling for Mervyn's, Macy's and Skechers. Steger is 5'8" with blue eyes and blonde hair. Well, it used to be blonde. Just one week before audi- tioning for the part in "Felici- ty," Steger dyed her hair brown. She did it because "everyone in L.A. is blonde." Steger said that often, she'd read for a role, and hear "We love her, but she's so cute." Wanting to land "roles with substance," Steger went brunette. Ironic the producers of "Felicity en ,ts|Ofletl blonde for Steger's character. "Gabby is supposed tO be hip, young and kind of ditsy," Steger said of her character. The initial casting call drew from 250 to 300 girls. They read for a casting direc- tor, who narrowed the list to roughly two dozen. Steger received a coveted "call back" and read for the director and producers. crew sends other sailors By od,, Mete.aft Staff Writer Returning from his ninth annual ship's reunion in Reno, Twain resident James Robbins has a new mission-- challenging members of other destroyers to help raise funds for sailors killed when the Pentagon was attacked Sept. 11. Forty-four sailors were killed inside the Pentagon when an airliner hijacked by terrorists flew directly into the building. And, as former members of the U.S.S. Floyd B. Parks DD884, a Naval destroyer, met in Reno recently, they knew they wanted to do their part to contribute donations for those sailors who had died. The 104 former members of the Parks raised $2,000, Rob- bins said. And with 3,000 members of other destroyers out there, Robbins has been doing his part to send out a challenge to thetn to also con- tribute. Calling the battleships from World War II and later years "tin can destroyers," Robbins said "We're hoping we're the first and others will follow." Robbins said he sent out notices to military newslet- ters inviting former destroy- er sailors to also donated to the cause. "We're hoping this will have the snowball effect," he said.
