Newsroom update AM 24/8/12

THE Examiner newsroom was buzzing this morning as reporters head off chasing stories for both Saturday and Monday editions of the paper.

Senior reporter Terry Deefholts was in a meeting with local police about a spate of car thefts in recent weeks.

He was also in the middle of writing a story about a local solicitor who is calling it quits after 40 years working the courts in the Clarence Valley.

The Daily Examiner's local shopping drive Crazy Day is in full swing and Terry will also be catching up with businesses and shoppers.

Lachlan Thompson has just interviewed Win Jefferies whose 100th birthday is happening now. She's a truly remarkable centurion and you won't believe her age when you see her photo in tomorrow's paper.

Lachlan also continued the paper's local election coverage talking to candidates about the issues that define their position. The first two of these profiles will be in tomorrow's edition.

How hot is it? Lachlan's going to find out if the hot temperatures are going to last and what you can do to cool off if the winter heatwave continues.

If you have any news for the paper, phone it in on 6643 0500.
