Morton: Recounts WWII stories FROM PAGE B1 Instead, he earned his bache- lor's degree in electrical engineer- ing from San Jose State University in California. After graduation, he worked for Lockheed's missile and space program, and then worked for the government in intelligence for 35 years before retiring to Washington to be closer to the couple's two daughters and their grandchildren and great-grand- children. Into the wild blue, but on the ground Wings or no wings, he has found ways to pursue his passion. Every Monday, you'll find Mor- ton recounting tales of heroism and tragedy in the Personal Courage Wing of Seattle's Museum of Flight. "I try to relive it," he said. "I try to tell stories that, even ff I didn't see active duty, I knew the tenor of the men and women who did serve, because I was alive and watched it." He tells stories like the one about Edward "Butch" O'Hare, who shot down five enemy craft in five minutes, but was later lost at sea. "His hometown loved him so much, they named the city's air- port after him, Chicago's O'Hare Airport," he said. "It's not as much about how big or fast the craft is, it's about the stories and history behind them." But Morton wasn't always a docent. He became involved in the museum through his model work. "I belong to the Marymoor Ra- dio Control Club and one of the members said the museum was looking for someone to build a model of the Wright flyer," he said. After an interview, and showing the curator his model of the Jenny biplane, the job was his. While he was mounting the piece, another museum head asked him to be a docent. After 13 weeks of museum training and tours, which he passed with flying colors in 2003, he now gives tours from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. on Mondays. "I meet new people all the time from throughout the world," from school children to Japanese execu- tives, he said. A dream tokes flight from a hobby When he's not at the museum, Morton is among more planes in his workshop, hunched over his latest project. During the past two years, that project has been a 5-by-7-foot model of Joseph and Etienne Mon- gollier's hot air balloon for the museum. After logging in 900 hours, a replica of the first manned aircraft was installed at the museum Sept. 5. "It is a wonderful addition to our collection of flying artifacts prior to the Wright brothers," said Director of Exhibits Chris Mailan- der. "Sandy has done several pieces for us, which are located throughout the museum. He is a great friend of the museum and a wonderful man, and we couldn't show all the things we do to the public without the great help and support of people like him." The project took so much time that Morton had to stop being a docent at the museum for about a year. The Monday after the bal- loon had been completed, June 4, 200 years to the day of its first flight -- he was right back giving guided tours of the Personal Courage Exhibit. But in the workshop is his next project. The shell ofa Neuport 28-C1 plane sits unpainted and without its wings on the workbench, but next to it sits pictures of the life- sized plane he is imitating and his goals are clear. The model will be an important feature in the museum, because visitors will be able to hit a button on the outside of it and learn how propeller technology works. "Not many people rea "lize that not just the propeller rotates, that it's the engine, too," Morton said. The meticulous attention to de- tail -- the paint, the size of the let- tering, a workingengine, the screws -- make his work shine. "I would like this," he said, ges- turing around the shop, "the art of using your hands and your imagi- nation, that is what I would like to impart to somebody and it's why I do this."

Delivery and pre-finishing available. Web site FROM PAGE B1 At any given time, The Youth Voice had about 200 users, he said, including clients from as far as Europe and Japan. "I smile every time I think about that," Sidialicherif said about knowing people around the world use his Web sites. He said his mother, Mary, an electrical engineer, played an im- portant part in encouraging him to learn all he can and stick with it. His father also spends time brainstorming with him, he said. Mary Sidialicherif said Adam is so Web- and media-savvy that he's figured out ways to rapidly poll peers via Twitter and, in a matter of an hour, have legiti- mate data to apply to developing his sites, which include a tech- nology blog, www.sidthekid.org. To be able to access them with a question and get a re- sponse back almost in real time ... it was really stunning. He just understands that whole space, Mary Sidialicherif said. "Learn- ing technology has been really good for him,,I think, in terms of future career. Writing code comes naturally to Adam, but he never thought he'd be doing it at every waking moment. "It's actually what I least ex- pected," he said. "It just comes to me." The tech-whiz kid also natu- rally excels at soccer -- before becoming a software developer, he wants to play pro soccer in Europe, he said. Between his custom Web site- building business and a couple of technology blogs, Sidialicherif and business partner, Eastlake Running Start student Abdu Elkugia, have made some money at it, too. Outside school, the two spend a lot of time together brainstorming ideas for new on- line teen services -- Elkugia fo- cuses mainly on marketing and design features. Elkugia, who started working with Sidiallcherif in June, said thus far, their peers at Skyline and Eastlake have liked the tools the pair has created. And through Google, Microsoft and Yahoo ads, they make up to $45 a day from their sites. The two phenom Internet de- velopers hope their relaunch of The Youth Voice, which they said should come in a week or two, will add new youth to the mix. "Mainly for us, it's just creating the product and the feature and ... seeing how they like it," Elku- gia said. Sidialicherif said he faces a challenge of creating more dy- namic, interactive content, but he's still full of ideas and passion for the task. "My favorite part is realizing that people appreciate what you do and take the time to look at it," Sidialicherif said. "It makes me feel so good that I'm provid- ing something out there that peo- ple use on a regular basis." Christopher Huber: 392-6434. ext. 242. or chuber@isspress.com.

Church FROM PAGE B1 want kids to know they matter to us just as much as their parents do, and I think they feel that right away when they visit us for the first time." For the past four months, 1-90 Community Church has been holding monthly "preview" serv- ices and is about to have its pub- lic launch Sept. 27. The church's mission is to "help people along the 1-90 corridor and beyond to know and become like Jesus Christ." "We have no desire to make people religious," Urban said. "We just want others to know Jesus and become like him. That means living lives of grace, love, humility, service and for- giveness. We don't care who you voted for, how you dress or where you come from. Jesus wants to be in a relationship with everyone." Urban also likes to emphasize the church's passion for commu- nicating to our culture through its two most influential mediums -- music and movies. And both make their way into every serv- ice. And what takes place in 1-90 Kids, the church's Sunday morn- ing program for infants through fifth-graders? "Well, there is definitely a lot of bouncing going on, that's for sure. But that s just the begin- ning," Urban said. "The kids participate in everything from singing to games to skits to sto- ries. And most importantly, they receive love and inspira- tion in a safe, healthy environ- ment." 1-90 Community Church meets at 10 a.m. Sundays at KidzBounce, 8178 304th Ave. S.E., in the Preston Industrial Park.
