From the newsroom AM 30/7/12

DAILY Examiner reporters have finished the morning news meeting and are heading out looking for stories.

Terry Deefholts has been looking at ways councils can tackle economic development and also problems developers have with councils.

He's also catching up with DEX reporter Dominic Zietsch who's wishing he'd taken gumboots to Splendour in the Grass.

Terry's also got a story about the Grafton District Services Club search fo DJs.

New cadet reporter Lachlan Thompson has hit the ground running. He's looking at the cuts the NSW Government has imposed on fire brigades and how they're affecting the Clarence Valley.

He's also out and about at the moment looking for people to comment on how they've escaped the GFC, or not.

And first thing this morning we've interviewed the Grafton Gladiators, who have made a donation that will help Vietnamese orphans get hold of bike helmets.
