From the newsroom AM 10/9/12

DAILY Examiner reporters are chasing reports of a man whipper snipping his way south from Brisbane among other things on a busy Monday morning.

Lachlan Thompson has teed up an interview Trent Tanaka, who's reached Ulmarra on his mission to trim the highway verge from Brissy to Sydney.

Lachlan's also looking at the state of play in the council elections. The final make up of the council is all but decided. Now the focus is on who will the councillors vote in as Mayor.

On a different tack Lachlan is also chasing up the fire situation in the Valley. Despite a shocker of a weekend the firies have kept the blazes in the Valley in check and are hoping some milder weather will allow them to get on top of them. But the window of opportunity is brief, with some windy weather forecast to hit late on Wednesday.

The Clarence Valley is also generating some good rental returns for investors, which is starting to attract attention from outside the region. Dominic Zietsch is talking to agents to see how widespread the trend is.

Tim Howard will be talking to parishioners and the Anglican Diocese about a couple of public meetings in Lawrence and Chatswood on Saturday.

In sport the team is looking at the upsets in the local hockey competition and also the Al Richards Long Board surfing titles.
