DAILY Examiner reporters are hard at it as they prepare the final versions of their stories for tomorrow's edition.

Senior reporter Terry Deefholts is following the latest episode in the long running saga involving animal rescue service Happy Paws Haven and Clarence Valley Council. He's been at Grafton Court House where Happy Paws owner Sally Rogers is appealing one of the Land and Environment Court conditions that will allow the service to continue.

Terry also has a story from court about a woman who was rescued from a domestic assault by Yamba fireys then turned on her rescuers.

In Yamba Graham Orams has the low down on this weekend's Brooms Head to Yamba walk for cystic fibrosis. Having a good time raising money for a good cause has to be a worthwhile way to spend some of your weekend.

Graham has also spoken to the Iluka Consultative Committee to get a reaction to the the change of NPWS boundaries and job losses. They're not happy campers.

There's good news for Grafton's Catholic Church with the long-serving Father Rex Hackett remaining as its priest. There was some drama at the weekend over Fr Rex's future, but the Bishop of the Lismore Diocese, Geoffrey Jarrett, said Fr Rex was on leave for the time being and would remain in the post.

Emma Pritchard is putting together a feature on the 30th anniversary of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service for Saturday's paper.

Earlier today she finished a story for our business section on Hank's Kitchen. They have recently opened new premises in South Grafton and not surprisingly are doing a roaring trade.

In sport new recruit Matt McInerney has hit the ground running. He's 'whacking together a yarn' on the Tucabia-Copmanhurst Cricket Club donation to Grafton Hospital (Maternity clinic) and their upcoming reunion.

Also featuring heavily in the back pages will be Grafton's Premier League netball grand final win over Ballina, the Wooli Snapper comp and the regular two-page hockey feature.

If you have anything we want to tell us about, phone it in on 6643 0500.
