From the newsroom AM 8/8/2012

THE decision may have been made on the Grafton Jail downsizing but the impact is still hitting home. Today we're speaking to some of those about the social impacts.

We're also speaking to two young drummers, Jethro Carthew and Mark Hough, who have made the top ten of Australia's Best Up and Coming Drummer Competition.

The council election ballot order will be drawn at 2pm this afternoon, so come back to our website after that and see the full and complete list of councillor candidates.

Don't forget to pick up tomorrow's DEX for instructions on how to fold your newspaper for scraps in your green recycle bin. We'll work on a video for the online version, but in the meantime if you have any better ways of doing it, get in touch by emailing jenna.cairney@dailyexaminer.com.au.

All that and much more.

Is there anything else you think we should be covering for tomorrow's paper?
