Lachlan Thompson has teed up an interview Trent Tanaka, who's reached Ulmarra on his mission to trim the highway verge from Brissy to Sydney.

Lachlan's also looking at the state of play in the council elections. The final make up of the council is all but decided. Now the focus is on who will the councillors vote in as Mayor.

On a different tack Lachlan is also chasing up the fire situation in the Valley. Despite a shocker of a weekend the firies have kept the blazes in the Valley in check and are hoping some milder weather will allow them to get on top of them.
