It is the little things that count, right?
Orlander Ruming talked to a Dubbo mum who came away from a hospital visit for her autistic son feeling like she had won the lotto. All thanks to a simple gesture from a nurse, little things, right?
Orlander also spoke with the Orana RFS who will have Gentle Bears on-board their trucks to hand out to children in traumatic incidents, little things, right?
A Dubbo mother living with multiple sclerosis and daughter have survived a house fire.
They will be in somewhat of a crisis mode at the moment, and it may be hard for them to focus on recovering with so many things preoccupying their thoughts.
They'll need a fair amount of resilience to heal and feel normal again and to get the strength to rebuild their lives.
Let's hope they don't have to do all of that alone. Messages of support for the family from the community have helped, little things, right?
Kim Bartley spoke to Dubbo couple Pat and Kier Yeo who celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary recently.
The wedding may never have happened if a shy admission had not taken place.
On the not so little front.
Indeed, the major hard-news of the last few days came from the inquiry into the Drug Ice that was in Dubbo this week.
Police acknowledge the problem is not going to get fixed by just arresting people. It is a health problem too. We hope the three days of testimony will shed more light on multiple ways to tackle the Ice problem in our community. The listening part of the inquiry is welcome. Listening and acknowledging a problem is always a good place to start.
But it would be a waste of time and a shame at the end of the listening if there is not some solid doing.
