Keeping the peace



DREW Baker will turn 21 very soon, but unlike most people his age, Drew will be spending his birthday helping to restore order to East Timor. The South Grafton army private left for Dili last Thursday. His mother, Shauna Baker, is taping all of the nightly news reports for him to watch when he returns, and thinks she may have seen him on television a few nights ago. "Yes, I'm a bit worried, especially when I thought I saw him running towards men with machetes the other night, but he's a very focused boy and I have a lot of confidence in his abilities and training," she said. "When he was enlisting the tsunami hit Asia and he said he'd really like to go overseas and help with something like that and really make a difference."
