From the newsroom PM 3/9/2012

I'VE BEEN on holiday for the past couple of weeks but had to shake the cobwebs off fairly quickly this morning after we heard of an alleged stabbing incident in South Grafton.

While we're still searching for more details on this incident, police and investigators have been at the scene today and it is understood a man is at hospital in Coffs in a stable condition, suffering numerous stab wounds.

Over in sport Patrick and Matt are recovering from their weekend of league and AFL, but there's no rest for the wicked as they plug away at hockey, hockey and more hockey for tomorrow's feature.


There have been issues raised by Lower Clarence Cricket Association president Rob Hodson over positioning of Yamba Skate park on boundary fence of Yamba Oval.
He is asking, "Who is liable if kids get hit by cricket balls?" Read about it in tomorrow's DEX.
