Michael Lane, son of Sharron Lawe, Salina, recently returned from a six-month deployment to the western Pacific Ocean and Arabian Gulf while assigned to the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln, home ported in Bremerton, Wash. During the deployment. Lane's ship was on station in the Arabian Gulf supporting U.N. sanctions of the no-fly zone over southern Iraq and participating in maritime interception operations. Lane's squadron also visited cities in Australia, Tasmania and the United Arab Emirates. While in Dubai, sailors from Lane's ship landscaped the Dubai Center for Special Needs. While in Hobart, Tasmania, the USS Abraham Lincoln clown troupe entertained residents of a children's home and patients at a children's hospital.

NAVY: Navy Airman Casey Collins, son of Kathy Collins, Golden, Colo., and Jim Collins, Talmage, is currently on a six-month deployment to the Mediterranean Sea and Arabian Gulf while assigned to the aircraft carrier USS Harry S Truman, home ported in Norfolk, Va. While on deployment, crew members from Collins' ship participated in damage control Olympics, a competition designed to train the crew to properly handle a crisis at sea. The events included a firefighting gear race, a hose- manning competition, a chemical protective overgarment suit dressout and desmoking a compartment through the use of a smoke generator. Collins is a 2000 graduate of Chapman High School and joined the Navy in February Plane / Glided into hobby FROM PAGE 1 He started with gliders, then rubber-powered, then gasoline- powered with simple radio controls. "If somebody had told me years ago that we'd have the things we have today, I'd say, 'Noway,' "he said. To prove his point, he hauls out a modern radio controller; just a few years ago, it would have had about a dozen toggle switches and a couple of joysticks. Now, it also boasts a touch-sensitive LCD screen, from which Moden can make literally dozens of digital adjustments. The airplanes have changed, too. Many now boast carbon- fiber bodies, digital servo motors and sensors that give the pilot such details as exhaust temperature — a clue to how well the fuel-air mixture is balanced. Following his retirement from Bildex in Marquette, where he was a geologist, Moden opened Don's Hobby Shop, first at the southeast corner of South Ninth and Magnolia and llJItcre Xlw Jun Never Sets" Year End School Parties Family & Class Reunions Church Youth Groups later moving to 1819 S. Broadway. He sold it m 1996, after just five years. He found working in a hobby shop didn't give him time for his hobby. "I was putting in eight to 14 hours a day," he said. "I couldn't get to the races. I didn't have time to fly, even at the flying field here. I was losing friends because I couldn't come out to play. I was always having to get back to the store." Even after that second retirement, Moden ended up back in business. He's a nationwide field representative for Horizon Hobby Distributors and J.R. Radios, two of the top suppliers in the radio-controlled aircraft industry. Soon, he'll be leaving for Greenville, S.C., on a business trip, then to Los Angeles the next week and Wyoming the week after that. He'll be driving. And that's on top of a racing circuit that starts in Texas in early June, then moves to Ohio in August and later to Michigan and California. He and other local enthusiasts have built a flying field just off Schilling Road about a half-mile east of Ohio. They're encouraging people who have never flown before — especially children — to come out on Saturdays once the weather warms. "We'll teach you how to fly, and it won't cost you anything." he said. If you, decide you like it, the hobby's not all that expensive to get started in, Moden said. "Yoii can get into it for under $500 and have top-quality gear," he said. "After that, it's up to you. It's like any other hobby, you can put as much into it as you want." B M U m SHELTER Your friend for Life... And Home and Auto. Call us fir insurance protection review.
