From the newsroom AM 24/10/2012

THE countdown is on until the official JADA opening on Friday and Lesley Apps has been interviewing a former winner.

We're also excited to hear there will be a run-through of the Jacaranda Crowning tonight and we can't wait for a sneak preview of the big event.

Terry Deefholts is hard at work on our weekly entertainment section and is trying to gather a list of performances during the Jacaranda Week. If you want yours listed, send the details to terry.deefholts@dailyexaminer.com.au.

I'll be putting Grafton Bridge and South Grafton Pool under the microscope today as well as looking into the issue of schools cutting back their cleaning staff. If you have anything to add to any of these issues you can call me on 6643 0581 or email jenna.cairney@dailyexaminer.com.au.
