Newsroom early PM update 17/08/12

DAILY Examiner journalists are knuckling down to work in the newsroom.

I (Emma Pritchard) have just attended the official opening of the $1 million overhaul of "The Legends Field" as part of the Fisher Park Redevelopment. The event marks the beginning of an exciting new era for hockey in Grafton.

At the opening I had the pleasure of meeting Lorna Felton and Shirley Hillier, recognised as legends of the sport for their outstanding contributions to Hockey in Grafton and throughout NSW.

Later on today I shall be chasing a few stories for our Monday paper. These stories include a new graffiti wall in South Grafton to curve the problem of graffiti vandals in the local area. I'll be hitting the streets to ask some of the locals if they think this is a good idea and if it will have any positive outcomes.

Lachlan Thompson has completed a story about Grafton becoming an RV friendly town. He is about to interview Member for Clarence Chris Gulaptis for the Our Time Now campaign.

Editor Jenna Cairney is completing work on council election forums for our Monday edition. She is also preparing a story about Grafton being snubbed as a location for an upcoming City Vs Country NRL match. I am very disappointed Grafton missed out on the chance to host this event. This is going to be a very interesting story for our local footy fans to read tomorrow.

Terry Deefholts is following the coronial inquest into the death of Ian Klum at Grafton Jail in June 2010.

Our photographer Debrah Novak has been out and about taking some fantastic photos for our weekend edition.
