From the newsroom AM 16/08/2012

EDITOR Jenna Cairney and reporters Kate Matthews, Lachlan Thompson and I (Emma Pritchard) have dived straight into a large pile of stories to prepare for tomorrow and for our weekend and Monday editions.

Today I will be speaking with the owner's of Hank's Kitchen about their second bakery which opened in South Grafton this week. Make sure you grab yourself a copy of DEX next Tuesday to read all about it in our Better Business section.

I will also be speaking to council regarding a memorandum of understanding with Acmena Juvenile Justice Centre. This could be quite an interesting lead story. I will also be hitting the streets later on to chat to locals and gather their opinions of this MoU and if they think this is a good way of helping to rehabilitate the youths at Acmena.

I am also hot on the trail of a few news stories to get under wraps for the weekend and for our Monday paper, these should keep me occupied for a while.

Earlier today I completed my GirlTalk column for Coastal Views and got that into copy nice and early.

Editor Jenna Cairney is hard at work on a couple of council articles and an election forum guide for Monday.

Kate Matthews is in Yamba today. Kate is chasing a story about a Yamba woman who is appearing on the popular Ch 9 program Farmer Wants a Wife and is also completing a follow up article after attending a community meeting in Maclean yesterday.

Kate is also working on a story about a National parks restructure which is causing mass concern in the area.

Lachlan Thompson is investigating a story about concerned parents who are worried their children are being left on their own at bus stops. He is also getting down to work on an article about scams to warn local residents of the dangers they bring and how they can recognise the signs and protect themselves. A local man who received a scam letter from the Netherlands is coming into the office to show DEX staff the paper work later today.

Lachlan is also working on a couple of stories for our weekend edition.
