Now a student at Bellevue Community College, AIxlo wants to combine his experience working with the handicapped with his interest in the media. In school he .is learning how to use TV to educate the handicapped. When he isn't in school, he is working at his painting business, which he started three years ago. His hobbies include photography, tennis, and golfing but he rolls his eyes when asked how much time he has to do those things. He would find time, however, to take a walk in the park with a woman or go on a "road trip," which consists of get- ting into the car and heading off to the great unknown beyond. He enjoys women who are spontaneous and don't go in for the expensive things in life, at least not yet.

Tiger Mountain Road, 392-0310 Age: 21, 6 feet, brown hair, brown eyes Sam was brought up on Bainbridge Island and came to Issaquah in his early teens, graduating from Issaquah High in 1981. You will see him these days pumping gas and fix- ing tires at Clark's Texaco. Sam is waiting to hear from "'The Art Center," a school in Los Angeles he is eager to attend. He is hard to pin down on what kind of art he enjoys doing the most, but he hopes someday to be a commercial artist. He spent a summer in Canada recently, studying the Bi- ble at a camp for Christians and feels that religion and Christianity are most important in his life. He also loves to hike and is an avid bicyclist. Sam would like his date to share his interest in Christiani- ty, but she need not be an art buff. His idea of a good time would be a picnic and a trip to an art museum. Volunteer Park for lunch, and an exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum would make for a happy afternoon. Sam is a little shy and is partial to a woman with a good sense of humor. %,. , \\; Bill Andrews 1626 238th Ave. S.E. 454-5232 Age: 22, 5 feet, 10 inches, sandy hair, blue eyes Bill is a California native who came to the area to attend college at the University of Puget Sound. He got a degree in communications but abandoned his hope of being a sports- caster to pursue another career. He is a mortgage loan representative for Central Fed Mortgage in Bellevue. He travels throughout the area to real estate companies seeking clients, but somehow he manages to maintain a year-round tan. It must be a well kept secret, but his healthy look secures his position as a certified jock. Life would be fine with Bill if his daily regimen included successive hall games. He'll play anything: baseball, racquetball, tennis -- he loves them all. Bill also enjoys action movies like "'Raiders of the Lost Ark" and "Rocky II1." He hates to read and claims he hasn't read a book since he left school. His date might have to understand that, and be more inclined to have fun out- doors. Bill says he isn't particular about the kind of girl he dales so long as she has an interest in being active. David Simmons 28 Sunset Way, 392-3872 Age: 35, 5 feet, 10 inches, brown hair, green eyes David has brought new life to the little barber shop at the corner of Sunset Way and Front Street. He's been in the business of cutting hair for 23 years and still loves the work. David was brought up in Shelton and learned how to cut hair when he was 12, hanging around the local barber shop. In high school, he claims he would shave seven log- gers before his first class. Since the early 1960% he's been cutting and styling women's hair, which is the reason he says it's the best pro- fession possible for men. He says he falls in love at least once a week and beyond that, it's an artistic and creative job. When he isn't cutting or styling hair, David is playing football, racquetball, water skiing, or dancing. His date should be sports minded. He calls himself a "cuddler" and a "'sensualist.'" He claims he doesn't have a preference for how his date should look, but if pushed, redheads top the list. Rod Christophersen 215 N.E. Dogwood, 392-6598 Age: 30, 6 feet, 4 inches, brown hair, blue eyes. Be prepared for spontaneous and somewhat offbeat fun with this guy. Example: to celebrate particularly tidy job profits, one night be and two partners took dates out to a dozen different restaurants and clubs in Seattle -- via limousine. And they all wore jeans. Correct attire isn't par- ticularly imDortant to Rod. On some weekends, he and a friend will just toss a sleep- ing bag and some food in the car and drive until they find a nice place to camp. He has favorite camping spots all over Washington, Oregon, Utah and Canada. Rod is a building contractor who works with several part- net's. He went to Western Washington University and studied a little bit of everything before getting drafted. For a time, he was interested in politics when he lived next door to Ralph Munro, the secretary of state, and met many of his cronies. A date with Red would probably include eating out at a Mexican restaurant -- Casa Lupita or Aurora's -- and then going out dancing. He's not fussy about the type of women he goes out with, as long as she's intelligent and can talk about a wide variety of subjects. Steve Strasen 385 E. Sunset Way 392-6707 ARe: 27, 6 feet, 3 inches, brown hair, blue eyes. Steve Strasen is not/fie kind of bus driver you could get surly with when your bus is half an hour late. He fits into that category of young Metro bus drivers who are more likely to engage passengers in a conversation about good movies than peer ahead, above the wheel. SlLsen has been with Metro for three years and he says it's good work because of the high pay and flexible hours, but he's ready for a change. He lives in Issaquah with an elderly man whom he cares for in exchange for room and board. It's a situation be calls both challenging and rewarding. Strasen's first love is writing and these days he is working on a book of satire about the seven deadly sins. It's your guess what they are. He loves to run, but not competitively. Running barefoot on a beach is his idea of heaven. A date would include an evening ferry ride to a local island and dinner at sunset. He likes a woman with con- fidence, probably tall and physically fit. Brian Lonvill 4647 West I.ake Sammamish Parkway S.E. 643-4161 Age: 24, 6 feet, 1 inch, brown hair, brown eyes Why would an international model who has spent the last five years hoIXK2ng with the world's most beautiful people, drop all thai to sell motorcycles in Issaquah? Brian says  nonchalantly thai he wanted a break and he loves motorcycles. Actually, selling bikes and tinkering with greasy parts is kind of a retum to his roots. Brian was plucked off a Seattle street five years ago and asked to become a fashion model when he was on his way to an auto parts store. Now, back in the mechanical world again he says, "1 wanted to create a situation for myself where I could excel." The years of high fashion modeling have certainly rubb- ed off on his tastes for a good time. A perfect date for Brian , is a plane ride to anywhere beautiful that is 75 degrees or ' alxwe. That journey would be planned to coincide with a dazzling sunset, for the benefit of his date. She, incidently, would not have to be "'physically flawless," says Longwill. Years of being around beautiful people have rendered him slightly immune to perfect looks, and he now seeks the inner beauty of an indepen- denl, adaplive woman.
