From the newsroom AM 28/08/2012

STAFF at The Daily Examiner have just finished the morning editorial meeting and are diving head first into a busy day.

It was an early start for Tim Howard this morning as he had to get up early to see off the group of cyclists setting off on the Ride for Sick Kids at 8am.

Tim said the early rise was worth it just to hear the banter from the 26 riders setting off for a week on the road.

It's going to be a change of pace later in the morning for Tim as he talks to a Nymboida farmer who is about to lose his farm to a bank.

I (Emma Pritchard) am writing a story about the Clarence Dog Sports Inc tracking and track and search trials which were held on the weekend at Fine Flower.

Dominic Zietsch is hard at work, putting together Coastal Views for Graham Orams this week.

Terry Deefholts is chasing a story to accompany dramatic footage of a burst water main at Ellem Oval yesterday.

He is also trying to catch up with a pair of Yamba musicians who are about to start a school of rock. There are also rumours a major agricultural supply business is about to move into the area.

Lachlan Thompson is talking to councillors and writing a Loving It on a local music hero.

In sport, Patrick Allen and Matthew McInerney are busy chasing up a story on the success of the South Grafton Primary girls netball team and writing up a report on junior Grafton Tigers Aussie rules star Star Hamish Ellem and his junior coach of the year John Kennedy.

Our photographer Adam Hourigan will be out and about today, snapping some fabulous pics for the Wednesday paper.

Tomorrows edition will also feature some court stories from last week.
