From the newsroom AM 9/8/2012

THE NBN bus has rolled into town, so Lachlan Thompson will be heading over to Shoppingworld to find out what it's all about.

Kate Matthews is down river working away on a number of yarns and is currently investigating the goings-on at a health centre in Yamba.

She's also working on a touching story about a grandfather and photographer sharing his research and work on Eastern Quolls.

We have few interesting yarn that came out of court this week and are also trying to follow up on today's front page on the Grafton Jail situation.

We have a few angles to chase regarding the jail and will hopefully be following up in coming days.

The affordable housing scheme is launched tomorrow, so we are hoping to put a preview story in tomorrow's DEX.

Has anyone tried the origami bin liner design featured in today's paper? What do you think?

Mine fell apart last night when I lifted it out and I managed to get egg shells and vegetables all over my kitchen floor.

Perhaps it's my folding that's at fault!

Don't forget if you have a better design for the scraps in your little green bin, let us know.

You could win a six-week subscription to the DEX.

Is there anything you think we've missed?
