COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho (AP) — The father of a Salt Lake City businessman is setting up interviews for women interested in marrying his 48-year-old son, nearly a week after taking out a newspaper ad announcing the search.

Baron Brooks tells the Spokesman Review newspaper that his father, Arthur Brooks, took out the $900 ad in the Coeur d’Alene Press last weekend. Earlier this week, he called the advertisement “embarrassing” but said he’d let his 78-year-old father go forward.

The ad lists criteria for potential applicants, including age, height and political views. It instructs interested women to contact the elder Brooks at an Idaho resort Friday for interviews Saturday.

When reached there by The Associated Press on Friday, Arthur Brooks said he won’t be answering any questions about the search until Sunday.
