New cadet reporter Lachlan Thompson has hit the ground running. He's looking at the cuts the NSW Government has imposed on fire brigades and how they're affecting the Clarence Valley.

He's also out and about at the moment looking for people to comment on how they've escaped the GFC, or not.

And first thing this morning we've interviewed the Grafton Gladiators, who have made a donation that will help Vietnamese orphans get hold of bike helmets.
