4PM

DAILY Examiner journalists are putting together the finishing touches on their stories for the day and completing articles for publication later in the week.

Photographer Adam Hourigan has put together a fantastic gallery online featuring his photos from the DEX netball heats this morning, www.dailyexaminer.com.au/photos/galleries/daily-examiner-netball-round-games/#/0

Kate Matthews has traveled to Maclean and she is currently attending a public meeting at Maclean Services Club to look at plans to make significant changes to the rosters of our local paramedics who are objecting to the proposal based on fears of increased fatigue and a loss of service to the community.

Lachlan Thompson has completed his article about haemostasis. He is currently working on a martial arts story and will be speaking to Craig Larsen, the martial arts master.

Our editor Jenna Cairney has been busy organising the election forums for next week and she is frantically trying to file her copy before the Clarence Valley Community Unions forum tonight at 6pm. Jenna will be heading to that shortly before coming back to the office to finish up the paper.Like many of us she is relying on caffeine and chocolate to get through the day.

I (Emma Pritchard) have been busy writing articles to promote our upcoming 2012 Wedding Expo on Sunday. I have been speaking with local exhibitors who will have information stalls and demonstrations at the event and there is a strong feeling of excitement in the air as the expo looms closer.

I've also spoken to Jane Bourke of The Naked Hound who has won a prize for her outstanding dog grooming skills at the Royal Queensland Show, commonly known as EKKA.

Like Jenna I too am relying on chocolate to get me through my first day back in the office. I have a few loose ends to tidy up and another twix bar to scoff.
