From the newsroom PM 30/8/12

THE Daily Examiner newsroom's day is winding down with reporters filing their stories for tomorrow's edition.

Terry has written a story based on an RP Data report which shows it is significantly cheaper to buy a house in South Grafton than to rent one. As with any statistics though - it pays to scratch the surface.

He has also spoken to Jackie Kempnich of Yamba who is launching the Little Fish School of Rock to get a whole generation of kids rocking. An X-Factor 2012 contestant who made it through to the final 16 of groups, Jackie has also criticized the reality TV show for being more drama than singing contest.

Another story, on a new counseling service for mentally ill or injured people in the Grafton area, is sure to be received well.

Lachlan Thompson finished his councillor profiles this morning and is keenly awaiting the candidates' answers to today's question which is how can the Valley capitalise on the Pacific Highway Upgrade.
He is currently writing a story on why publically funded dentistry fails to reach those who can least afford private care.

Tim Howard has caught up with Clarence River Tourism and the Clocktower Gallery who look to have nutted out a solution at least for the next three months. The Gallery, which was to be evicted from the Grafton Tourist Information Centre, where members have been selling their wares for the past five years, now has a breathing space until after Christmas.

Foodies are also in for a treat with a couple of tickets to a Gate to Plate masterclass up for grabs in a competition starting tomorrow.
New sports reporter Matthew McInerney is just putting the finishing touches on our footy liftout and getting a head start on what is sure to be a massive Saturday of sport.

Racing writer Tony White has been out at the race track for the afternoon and will be filing his report on the day's racing in the next hour or so.

Also online today we have a story on a boost for the groups battling coastal weeds in the Clarence.

Anyone with news for The Daily Examiner should phone it in on 66643 0500.
