From the newsroom AM 6/8/2012

THE weekend has come and gone in the blink of an eye and I'm a little sleepy today after making the big trip down the Sydney for the Country and Regional Living Expo.

It was a great opportunity to promote the Clarence Valley and there seemed to be a number of people interested in making the move here.

I'm looking into some suggestions we could have more good news on the way regarding a university presence in town and will be also catching up with some candidates for the September local government elections.

Dominic Zietsch is writing a few stories on Homeless Week this week and will be talking to some of those involved in organising sleep outs.

Lesley Apps and Adam Hourigan are off to Yulgilbar for a look around this morning.

We're also working on the best newspaper folt for the new green bins. I've been struggling at home to find the best method to wrap my scraps in the DEX, so I'm going to try my hand at some origami today and see if I can come up with a better solution. Any suggestions?
