Still Jammin’ Langley’s Greg Drew is set to host another outdoor concert in memory of his son, Jay, who died in a high-speed car crash a decade ago

MONIQUE TAMMINGA Times Reporter

With tears streaming down his face, and his voice welling up in pain, Greg Drew re-tells the story of arriving at the crash scene where his 17-year-old son Jay sat trapped, battered and broken inside his crushed sports car. Jay’s sixfoot, five-inch inch frame compressed — his femur bone was shoved up beside his ear. “It’s been 10 years, but it was like it was yesterday,” said Drew, sitting on the deck of his Allard Crescent acreage. That’s where he will host his all-day Jammin’ 4 Jay concert on Aug. 25. The multi-band concert, featuring Tom Lavin and the Legendary Powder Blues, will mark 10 years since Drew’s son Jay, a Walnut Grove Secondary student, sped down 80 Avenue, losing control on a corner and slamming his Eagle Talon into a tree at a high rate of speed. “With seven large bones broken, and his front end of his car compressed into

him, he used his good hand to phone his mom to apologize,” said Drew, his voice breaking, while holding a framed picture of Jay in his grad gown. Drew never got to see his youngest son graduate with the rest of his friends at WGSS. Drew, as a veteran Surrey firefighter, had seen his share of graphic and tragic crashes involving teens. “I was 23 years on the job. I had seen it all, but when it’s your own son lying there . . .” Drew starts to cry, not able to finish his sentence. Drew had heard about the crash over the scanner and worried it might be Jay, so he rushed to the scene. “Jay had Superman syndrome. He had been in three crashes before this one,” said Drew. In fact, Drew, seeing the carnage of many teenagers and their sports cars, worried about Jay driving a highpowered car. continued, PAGE 6 Monique TAMMINGA/Langley Times

Langley’s Greg Drew stands beside the truck which tows his son Jay’s crumpled car to B.C. high schools. Drew uses the vehicle in which his son died on May 11, 2003, to illustrate the dangers of speeding. On Aug. 25, he will host another Jammin’ 4 Jay concert to raise funds in support of his efforts.

Man arrested in sandwich store thefts KEVIN DIAKIW Black Press

A Surrey man has been arrested and charged in connection with a flurry of robberies involving a chain of sandwich stores in Langley, Surrey and Delta earlier this year. Rupinder Jit Sooch, 29, was arrested on Aug. 7 and charged in relation to nine robberies spanning six days. From Jan. 31 to Feb. 5, nine robberies were reported at various restaurants in the area, many involving the Subway

sandwich chain. The suspect was described as a South Asian male, in his late 20s, short, with a thin build. In all of the robberies, the suspect was armed with a knife and would disguise his appearance with a hooded sweatshirt and cloth covering the lower half of his face, before fleeing in a silver four-door vehicle. After a nine-month investigation, Surrey RCMP’s robbery section arrested Sooch and have received approval for 16 Criminal Code charges.

They include nine counts of robbery and seven counts of disguise with intent. None of the victims were injured as a result of the robberies. Sooch has been remanded in custody, with his next court appearance set for Thursday, Aug. 22. Police are reminding merchants and the public about taking the necessary precautions when facing a robbery threat. They ask people to remain calm in the event of a robbery and cooperate with the robber’s demands.

They should never assume a robber isn’t armed, and try to pay close attention to what they look like and any vehicles they may be associated with. Police urge people to try to observe the direction of travel of the suspect, and call police when they have departed and it is safe to do so. For more information on how businesses can help minimize the impact of a robbery on their employees and customers, visit the Protect Yourself section of the Surrey RCMP website at http://bit.ly/ Xf5gx2.

You & The Law

PRESENTS Broken Promises Suppose you hire a landscaping firm to put in a new garden. After discussing the details, the landscaper promises to complete the garden by a certain date. You promise to pay him a deposit up front and the rest when he’s finished. That constitutes a contract. A contract is a legally binding agreement between competent parties that a court will enforce. Contrary to popular belief, most contracts do not need to be in writing in order to be enforceable. So what is a “breach” of contract? That’s when one party fails to do what he promised – for example, the landscaping firm plants cedar trees instead of the magnolia trees you asked for. What can you do if the other side breaches the contract? The usual remedy is to get an award of money (called “damages”) which will put you in the same position you would have been in had the promise been performed. If things are going really sideways, you may also be able to cancel the contract completely. But do you have to wait for a breach to occur if the other side makes it clear they have no intention of going through with their part of the bargain? Unless they have a valid legal excuse for such non-performance (for example, a pre-agreed condition hasn’t been met), you may be able to treat the contract as already breached once they announce their intentions. At this point, you would generally advise the other party that he is in breach and alert him as to how you intend to proceed. You must take reasonable steps to minimize your loss, since this will be a limiting factor in any award of damages. Sometimes this means giving the party in breach a limited opportunity to “cure” the breach, failing which you can hire someone else to fix the problem (after taking reasonable steps to get

the best price possible). In a few rare cases, where money wouldn’t adequately compensate for a breach, a court may order “specific performance,” forcing the other side to do what they promised. Your lawyer can advise you if “specific performance” is available in your particular case. Sometimes the agreement itself spells out the consequences of a breach. For example, it could say that the innocent party can cancel the contract in certain situations and keep a reasonable deposit put up by the other side. Timing can be a critical issue. The contract may say that a specific time for performance is essential (e.g., May 31 for completion of the garden). If you casually let the date pass without objection (“Oh well, everyone knows contractors are always late”), and don’t fix another date as critical, you may find you cannot later insist on damages for the delay. This might allow the other side to carry out the work later than promised without penalty (unless the contract calls for it). There are, in fact, many wrinkles and special rules that come into play when there’s an alleged breach of contract. If the agreement is important enough, you may want to talk to your lawyer up front for help in preparing it. Your lawyer can also help if you are facing a breach of contract situation. Be mindful there are time limits (called “limitation periods”) for enforcing a contract or seeking compensation – so don’t delay seeking help.

They have the ability to track the speed of a vehicle just as if they were driving behind it, she said. They do a lot of traffic work, especially on the Sea to Sky Highway, where they have caught many excessive speeders. “I’m not really a techie. I like to fly and catch the bad guys,” she said of all the equipment used inside the helicopter. They also use thermal imaging equipment. “It’s a nice tool that has helped us located many missing people who are lost in trails. If they shine any type of light when they hear us, we can track them immediately.”

They are the RCMP’s eye in the sky, but now Air One and Air Two will be a lot closer to home for Langley residents. The BC RCMP Air Services section has moved their two helicopters from YVR South Terminal to the Langley Regional Airport. Insp. Nigel Bushe, Officer in Charge of the Air Services, said the move to Langley makes them more central to get to crime scenes and it is also more cost effective. “To get our helicopter out of YVR we often had to wait 10 to 15 minutes to get clearance because it is such a busy airport,” said Bushe. “We didn’t get priority treatment, even if it was an emergency.” Now Air One can get from Langley Airport to Whalley in three minutes. It can fly over to Maple Ridge in that same time. The RCMP have signed a long-term lease for hangar 47 and have been flying out of Langley since June. “Langley is dead centre,” said Bushe. Right now there are two pilots and two tactical officers but Bushe is hoping that number grows to four or five. They are also hoping to bring a third helicopter on board. “We are hoping the third helicopter can be a twin engine. That will allow us to hover, and do border searches and work with the Americans,” he said. The RCMP Air One launched in 2006. Shortly afterwards, the province bought a second helicopter. Since then air services has helped with hundreds of arrests, vehicle pursuits and recovery, locating suspects trying to run and hide and helping find lost hikers. “We track down a lot of stolen vehicles, at

Working one night, six weeks before Jay died, Drew brought his two sons down to a graphic scene involving an Eagle Talon wrapped around a telephone pole in Surrey. The outcome in that crash wasn’t good either. While the impact of seeing that crash made a difference with his older son, it clearly didn’t change Jay’s view of driving dangerously. Jay’s favourite movie was the “Fast and the Furious.” Drew said when he arrived at the scene, his son knew he had been badly injured. “He was conscious the whole time. He didn’t say boo because he knew he screwed up big time,” said Drew. It took more than an hour for Langley firefighters to tear away Jay’s car, that had wrapped around him. His size 15 shoes are still etched into the metal underneath the pedals of his mangled car. The shoelaces have been taken out, said Drew, a request made by Jay’s young cousin. She now wears the shoelace around her neck with her home key attached, to remember him by. Jay was rushed to hospital with severe injuries and swelling in the brain. He died of his injuries not long after. “It’s the most hopeless feeling in the world, holding your son’s hand and watching him take his last breath.” Drew found himself living a parent’s worst nightmare. He was inconsolable. “I could have sat at the

Jammin’ 4 Jay fundraiser often shocking testimonial — which includes Jay’s ashes — that sink in with the kids. “I tell the kids, ‘you think your actions don’t impact others, but there is a tidal wave of destruction.’ “From that first time when I spoke in the Kootenays, I received 50 emails from kids, some bawling their eyes out, and it hit me — I was getting through and that means the whole world to me,” said Drew. That was more than five years ago. Since then, Drew has spoken to thousands of teens, including some in Langley this year, drilling his hard-hitting message home. He has received emails and letters from several students who attend Jay’s former school, saying his words changed them. The teens he speaks to often are bawling alongside Drew as he tells them to go home and hug their parents, because all he can do now is look at photographs of Jay. “When I look out at a gym full of students and half the kids are crying, then I think maybe I touched them emotionally and maybe they won’t speed that time, or get drunk behind the wheel,” said Drew. He has had teachers come

to him and say they had been trying to reach a troubled teen and Drew’s message is what got through. “I had one kid come up to me after and say ‘you changed me. I have been a real shithead to my parents and I can’t wait to get home and introduce my parents to their son again.’” Each student is given a decal they are asked to put up on their vehicle’s visor. On it is a picture of Jay and the acronym RATT, which stands for Responsible Adult Thinking Teenager. “It turns out Jay was a street racer. If someone would have RATTed him out, call me and tell me, it could have made the difference,” Drew said. Talking to teenagers has been really therapeutic for him. “It’s good for me to know my kid didn’t die in vain, he is making a difference.” For the first time, because of fundraisers like Jammin’ 4 Jay, Drew was able to leave a scholarship at WGSS in Jay’s name. He hopes to build on that and add more. This year’s concert proceeds will go to paying for a new truck and trailer that can haul Jay’s wrecked car to high schools around the province. At Jammin 4 Jay, his vehicle

His new wife Carla has been the backbone to organizing what should be an amazing event, he said. A bunch of local bands are playing too, including In Harm’s Way, Pie, which is a band from Walnut Grove, Kronik, The Sneaks and more. Beach volleyball will also be going on, along with food and other fun, and maybe some surprises, too. Pre-day tickets are $50 and $60 at the gate. Tickets can be bought at www.jammin4jay. com.

THEY SAY

Overpaid fare takers

Bus fares doubled

J

ordan Bateman, B.C. director of Canadian Taxpayers Federation and former Langley Township councillor, for months has been highlighting the excessive pay and light workload of TransLink police officers. His latest missive was released Thursday. Information on TransLink salaries shows that 141 TransLink employees made more than $100,000 last year. Included in that figure is 58 of the 166 TransLink police officers. Bateman has noted before that these officers rarely stray far from the SkyTrain line. Bateman says about half of them are working on only one file, other than fare evasion, per month. Many of the TransLink police are retired from other police forces, and collecting pensions in addition to their pay from TransLink. They get extra pay for working on Sundays, according to their collective agreement. It’s obvious the TransLink police model does not provide good value for taxpayers, and Bateman is right to keep harping on this topic. TransLink is broke. It has no additional sources of revenue on the horizon, and cannot afford to expand services. Its top executives are drawing hefty salaries, between $300,000 and $400,000 per year. While these salaries are high, the top executives do have many responsibilities. On the other hand, TransLink police officers have few responsibilities. Despite months of publicity about their lack of meaningful work, and the serious problems on certain bus routes, particularly in Vancouver, TransLink Police still stay off the buses. There they might actually have some real police work to do. Nor are they visible at bus loops, such as the one in Langley City, where at times, there have been some serious criminal activities. How many Times readers have seen a TransLink policeman in Langley? It is high time the TransLink board and senior executives took a good hard look at just what TransLink Police does, and how much it costs. If the force does not start doing more significant police work, it should either be disbanded or reduced by at least two-thirds. There should be no premiums for working on Sundays. Transit operates on a seven-day week. In addition, there needs to be changes made to pension plans, so that TransLink police officers who draw pensions have some of their pension income clawed back, and used to keep that particular pension plan healthy. There is no justification for double dipping.

ith TransLink set to role out the new Compass Card fare system next year, there comes word that after investing more than $170 million in new faregates, TransLink buses will no longer be getting the new fareboxes, in order to save $25 million. The Compass Cards offer many benefits. Users can load money on their card and buy the equivalent of a monthly pass or get a similar discount to the FareSaver prepaid ticket booklets by buying ahead. TransLink expects passengers will flock to adopt the reloadable Compass Card because of the convenience it will offer — ending the need to go to a store to buy a monthly pass — as well as other advantages like transfer of the balance if the card is lost or stolen. However, those who opt to not buy one of the preloaded Compass Cards and instead choose to pay for their bus ride with mere cash will have to pay double should they want to transfer to a SkyTrain. This is a policy that will unfairly target poorer riders, as well as the casual transit user. It certainly in no way encourages transit use, which should be TransLink’s No. 1 priority. TransLink estimates only about 6,000 riders will be affected by the decision to not upgrade the bus fareboxes, and the $25 million it would cost is not worth it. However, given the cost of the Compass Card program to date and TransLink’s insistence at pushing forward with this plan, it’s puzzling that they are suddenly concerned with how they spend taxpayer dollars. TransLink estimates that fare evasion costs the local transit authority $7 million annually. If that’s the case, it will take TransLink close to 25 years just to break even on the Compass Card program, given the $170 million it has spent. By that time, many of the faregates will obviously need to be repaired or replaced outright, so continued, PAGE 9 The Langley Times is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry.

Langley Times

Legion deserves lots of credit Track and field championships Editor: I have appreciated your coverage of the Royal Canadian Legion Youth Track and Field Championships, which took place Aug. 9-11. I have experienced another side of the event, and was amazed with what I learned, which I think should be shared. I have summarized this and send it for you to use as you see fit, as a letter to the editor, or somewhere else. I was truly awed when I found this out. The “why� of the event needs to be told. I recently had the privilege of being a bus driver for the youth track and field championships, which took place at Neil McLeod Athletic Park. I ferried the teams from Newfoundland/Labrador and Prince Edward Island to and from the competition venue, back to their lodgings at Trinity Western University, as well as to other events. This track and field meet has become a huge event, with athletes having to meet high standards in order to compete on their provincial team. The Legion provides funding for those who qualify. I understand this meet cost in the range of $600,000. This was the 37th annual national track and field championship, for athletes aged 14-17. This meet also commemorated the end of the Korean War, 60 years ago.

from PAGE 8

I knew nothing about this track and field meet at all, and watched in amazement as senior and elderly members of the Legion volunteered their time and energy, organized about 1,000 athletes, flew them in, fed them, housed them, transported them, officiated at track and field events, kept things on schedule, and you name it. I finally asked one legionnaire why the Royal Canadian Legion and its members were running such a prestigious track and field meet. He told me: “After the Second World War, many, many soldiers never came home again, dying overseas for the cause of freedom. Too many families were left without a father, and too many boys left without a Dad. War veterans realized that these young boys needed to be kept busy in a positive way, so the Legion started an athletics program. This quickly came to include girls too. Over the years, it evolved into this national athletic event.� I find this astounding. What a wonderful concept. What a tribute to the Legion and our Miranda GATHERCOLE/Langley Times military veterans this is. I salute Kayden Johnson of Saskatchewan them. Ginny VanderHorst, competed in the long jump at the Langley Legion track and field championships.

Going above and beyond the call Editor: Last week I decided to bike from my home in Mission to visit my daughter in Langley. This was during the heat we have had, and this may have had something to do with the fact that, although I had planned to turn off 248 Street onto 56 Avenue, I carried on south, and I was surprised to find myself at Fraser Highway. I took the opportunity to rest for a little while and to go into the gas station on the corner of Fraser Highway and 248 Street. I asked the gentleman in there if he could tell me how to get to my destination — which is off 240 Street north

of 56 Avenue. He told me that I should go back up 248 Street, and turn left at, I believe, 48 Avenue. I duly set off north on 248 Street, only to be overtaken by a car, which stopped in front of me, to reveal the gentleman whom I had inquired of at the gas station. The first words he said were: “I misled you.� He had realized, while looking at a better map than I had, that 48 Avenue did not apparently go through to 240 Street, and so he suggested that I go up to Robertson Crescent and turn left there.

NORM SHERRITT

This I did, and I got to my daughter’s house with no further problems. If this had been me, I would probably have been sorry that I had given wrong directions, but that is as far as I would have gone, particularly if I had been busy. He took the trouble to get his car out and go after me to put me on the right route. I would like now to say publicly how much I appreciated his action. For my part, I have resolved to do my best in future to behave similarly. Ralph Smith, Mission

He was a treasure trove of information Editor: The passing of Norman Sherritt brings back a lot of memories. In 1970, Norm was principal of Aldergrove Secondary, when Sharon began her teaching career. That was when we first got to know Norm. He knew more about Langley history than anyone we ever met. The amazing thing was that not only did he know what had happened in Langley, but he could produce a news paper clipping or some other document or photo to back up the fact he The

was talking about. He had a warm and welcoming disposition, a great sense of humour and supported us 110 per cent in our relocation to Murrayville. Norm spent a good part of his life in Murrayville, so he had the information we needed to carry out an authentic restoration of the Travellers Inn (now {Princess and Pea B and B) hotel. We spent many hours talking to Norm about Murrayville. Thank you

TransLink frustrates many

for your support, Norman. We have been involved with the Murrayville Hall over the past 15 years, and he had all the facts about the hall. His father Ab built the hall, so he knew it very well. Norm also shared with us many of his photos and documents in that regard. A truly unselfish person, we will miss Norm a lot. Sharon and Wally Martin, Murrayville

breaking even is unlikely. TransLink has flushed $170 million down the toilet for this project. That’s a lot of money that could have better been spent adding buses and rolling stock, and improving service for transit users. With gas prices at record highs thanks in part to TransLink’s gas tax, residents here in Delta are understandably frustrated with the transit authority. Is it any wonder why so many Lower Mainland residents want to do away with TransLink? — South Delta Leader (Black Press)

An African agriculture project will be supported by the Quest To Change canvas. Squares for the canvas will be sold for $10 each at the Langley International Festival. mounted on a giant aluminum frame for $10 each. The squares can contain artwork, personal messages or other items. The completed canvases will be mounted on a 12-foot aluminum frame. When each frame is filled, it will be displayed in various locations throughout Langley to promote the project. Future squares will be sold to make future completed banners. This is the first year the club is mounting Quest To Change. This year’s effort supports agriculture and scholarship projects in Sierra Leone, West Africa, which are being undertaken by the People’s Foundation of Sierra Leone, a local charity. The foundation was organized by Krissi Bucholtz, a 22-yearold who first visited Sierra Leone as part of a trip in her Grade 12 year at Fraser Valley Christian High School in Surrey. The school had partnered with local groups in the town of Kabala to build a primary school.

Her visit inspired her to set up a foundation to assist young people in Sierra Leone obtain university educations and helping change their country. Sierra Leone, which has a population of six million, endured a brutal civil war from 1992 to 2002, and is one of the poorest countries in the world. The foundation has set up an agricultural project in Kabala to help raise funds for university scholarships within Sierra Leone. Rotary Club spokesman Carlos Trujillo said the funds raised in Langley will be delivered to Sierra Leone through a local Rotary Club there, to ensure the money goes to its intended purpose. Funds raised by the Langley club will be tripled through grants from Rotary International. He is excited about the potential of the Quest To Change project and hopes it will make a significant difference in the lives of young Sierra Leoneans.

The Shop to Visit: Valley Direct Furniture

Budget Brake & Muffler

Fine Furnishings & Interior Design What started as a home-based business has flourished into one of the Fraser Valley’s most reputable destinations for stylish and functional furnishings. The Langley family-run store first opened its doors over 25 years ago, offering a wide range of eclectic furniture, ranging from shabby sheik and modern to country or transitional. We are consistently striving to bring in the latest and greatest products for customers. “We’re not anything like a’ big box’ store where you’ll find the same old commodity items made from materials that won’t last and end up in our landfills,” said the Langley entrepreneur, who also owns the Valley Direct Furniture Outlet store at 5511 192 St. in Langley. “Our distinct products – some of which are manufactured locally– are so different from what you’ll find anywhere else. We’re selling a style, a look.” In addition to having an extensive selection of stock in store, Valley Direct Furniture offers custom pieces for customers upon request. “Whether it’s custom upholstery, custom tables orr entertainment centres, we can do almost everything,” ,” notes Horner. Valley Direct Furniture’s work has been featured inn various show homes over the years – most recently, the 2013 BC Children’s Dream Lottery 2102 128th Street, South Surrey. The spacious showroom also carries a wide selection of one-of-a-kind art and accessories for the

Thinking Outside The Big Box Concept home, as well as lamps and area rugs – eclectic pieces to help liven up any living space, big or small. For anyone needing large-scale artwork for their home, Valley Direct Furniture is just the place to find it. “A lot of the larger homes with big vaulted ceilings require larger art – a 24 inch by 24 inch painting just isn’t’ going to cut it,” said Horner. “We also offer smaller pieces for condos and smaller dwellings.” Whether it’s an elegant dining table set or casual sectional, customers can be rest assured that the patio furniture purchased at Valley Direct Furniture will stand up to the West Coast weather. “We use fabrics that are intended for the outdoors and resistant to the sun and rain. When investing in patio furniture, it’s important to remember that we live in B.C., not California.” We encourage anyone who hasn’t stopped in to the store to swing by, check out the stunning showroom and say hello. “Whether you’re in the market for new furniture and home accessories, or just wanting to browse, we look forward to showing you the fabulous new pieces that have come into our showroom!”

Busy Inta encourages self expression through the arts Mel Kositsky

Her love of the arts evolved as a small child when she discovered knitting and started making her own clothes. She said painting or drawing was not for her, but she does enjoy all forms of music and entertainment - and loves reading books.

If

there is a community event involving arts and culture, you will likely find Inta Schorcht there. Still a very active volunteer and participant, she is best known for her quilt creations, which are both colorful and very detailed in design. The Walnut Grove resident recently celebrated her 84th birthday by participating at the annual Arts Alive festival in downtown Langley.

“I really enjoy the fibre arts but I also enjoy everything else. I don’t have to do it to enjoy it,” she adds. “People are very important. I love going out and meeting people,” says Schorcht, who has now limited some of her activities because she is not driving evenings any longer. As most meetings are at night she no longer sits on community boards such as the Arts Council, Weavers and Spinners and the Heritage Society, but she still supports the organizations.

She spent the day there displaying and selling her knitted goods outside of the Langley Arts Council building, where two of her quilts are on display and available for purchase. “I’m always busy,” says Schorcht. “The days are too short for me. I need more than 24 hours!”

While she and her family have lived in many different parts of the world before coming to Canada in 1978, she says her family (she has two children) has now lived in Langley for the longest period of her life. She had been used to moving around, having lived in nine countries, mostly in northern Europe. But she has also lived in South and Central America and Africa.

She usually spends about two hours a day knitting at home in the mornings and can always be seen knitting at functions and events as her knitting needles and yarn are very portable. No idle hands for this active lady. In fact she keeps fit both physically and mentally by swimming five times a week and going to the gym. “I do 40 laps non-stop which is 1,000 metres. I get to think nice thoughts while in the water.” She also likes walking and has been named Oldest Walker five or six times at the annual Langley Walk each May. She believes she has only missed about two walks on the first Sunday in May since settling in Langley. And proudly says she always completes

the 10 km walk (not the short walk). She remembers walking the full 15 km in the early years when the longer course was part of the community activity.

‘Sacrifices worth it’ to represent country

Lisa Roman rowing for Canada at world championships in South Korea GARY AHUJA Times Sports

While not the ideal height coaches tend to look for in an elite rowing athlete, Lisa Roman more than makes up for that perceived deficiency. “She is not the tallest athlete, but she certainly makes up for it with her tenacity,” said John Keogh, the chief coach for Rowing Canada’s senior women’s national team. Since January, the 5-foot-11 Roman has been in London, Ont. training with Rowing Canada. Keogh says coaches tend to seek out athletes six feet and above with long limbs.

straight to work. “I knew what I needed to do to get on the team.” And what she has needed to do has been putting in the work. Roman and the rest of the rowers are typically on the water for about three hours a day — split into two practice sessions — and then off-water workouts as well. Add it all together, and it is a full-time job. It also means that Roman is delaying putting what she learned at university on hold for the time being. The soon-to-be 24-year-old — she celebrates a birthday next month — graduated from Washington State University in May 2012 with a psychology degree and a double minor in human development and sports management. She does some occasional parttime respite work with a 13-yearold autistic boy. But the focus remains on

representing her country. “(All the sacrifice) is worth it when you get to stand on the podium, that’s for sure,” she said, adding it is amazing to wear your country’s colours. “I love it; there is no better feeling.” She helped Canada win bronze in July at the World Rowing Cup in Switzerland. Roman was also part of the Canada squad which won gold in 2011 at the under23 world rowing championships, setting a world record in the process. Following the world championships, Roman will return to Langley — her family still lives in Murrayville and she is a graduate of D.W. Poppy Secondary — for a brief threeweek break, before she heads back to London to resume training. All of this is being done with the goal of rowing for Canada at the Olympics, hopefully in 2016.

Alexander the great Long-jumper leaps to gold medal GARY AHUJA Times Sports

It wasn’t an easy task to get to the Legion Canadian track and field championships, but Alexander Savage ended up right where he wanted: atop the podium with a gold medal draped around his neck. The 15-year-old from Langley leaped a personal best 6.66m — bettering his previous mark by 35cm — to take gold in the midget (16 and under) long jump at McLeod Park. The championships ran Aug. 9 to 11. Not bad for an athlete who had to be convinced by his father, Mike, to pay the entry fee and give it a shot at the Legion championships. “He told me I had put so much time into it, I should go do it,” Savage recalled.

Mallory DONEN Photography

Alexander Savage won the midget U16 boys long jump title with a leap of 6.66m. Savage’s hesitance to enter stemmed from the fact he had gone to Kamloops last month with the intention of earning his way onto the Team B.C. roster — which would have waived his entry fee for the Legion championships. To earn a spot, Savage needed to finish top-two in his event, and he thought he had with a leap of 6.00m. But when the roster was later announced, the teen found out his

best jump had been deemed illegal and voided. Savage said he was shocked at what had transpired, but finally agreed to pay the entry fee and compete on his own. He trains with the South Fraser Track and Field Club and coach Robert Esmie, although it was just Savage and his father working on his long jump out at McLeod. He also credited Flip City Gymnastics owner Rusty Pearce, who

helped him work on his jumping technique and get used to rotating his arms while he was in the air and to keep his balance. And it all came together on Sunday, the final day of the Legion championships. Jumping with what he called “a little chip on my shoulder”, Savage won the gold with his personal best leap. The silver medal went to Team Quebec’s Ivan Nyemeck (6.57m) while Team Manitoba/ Northwest Ontario’s Thomas Walser (5.99m) won bronze. “I performed well; I was happy (with my jump),” Savage said. “It felt great.” Savage is a newcomer to the sport, only taking up track and field seriously, this past May. He also plays basketball with the Walnut Grove Gators junior boys’ team. Entering Grade 10 next month at Walnut Grove, Savage plans to pursue both sports to see where they will take him.

Health Matters

Eh? What’s that you said? If it feels like you’re saying that a lot these days, maybe you’re developing hearing problems. Other signs include constantly turning up the volume, avoiding or feeling confused in social situations or having people complain that you aren’t listening to them (when, really, you are trying!). If this sounds like you, time to book an appointment with your doctor for a hearing test. Hearing aids have come a long way in recent years – some so small that they can be hard to detect when being worn. However, size isn’t the only consideration when choosing a hearing aid. Some of the small ones aren’t as effective for severe hearing loss, excessive wax production or separating background noise.

Latex is derived from natural rubber and is capable of inducing some severe allergic reactions. Unfortunately, it is found in a wide variety of products – everything from baby bottle nipples to bandages and elastic to balloons. Avoiding it can be difficult – latex-free products are often produced in the same facilities as those with latex and can be contaminated. Proceed with caution until you know if you react to a new brand or product. Interpreting label information can be complicated, but our pharmacists can help guide you to items that are safer for you if you suffer from allergies. Don’t be afraid to ask for assistance.
